New Poster for ‘Life Itself’ puts Roger Ebert front and center

life-itself-posterMaybe I’m too close to the material, being as I’m one of the countless who were inspired by the life and the work of the late film critic Roger Ebert, but I’ve long suspected that the documentary Life Itself is our Best Documentary Feature frontrunner. In fact, I even have a hunch that Steve James‘ look at Ebert could potentially contend for a Best Picture nomination, considering how emotionally resonant the material will be. We’ll get a better idea of its chances this summer when it comes out after its run on the festival circuit, but we have a Poster to share with you all now that showcases the one and only Ebert in all of his glory. Take a look below and stay tuned for more on this one. Life Itself is easily one of the ten most anticipated titles of 2014 for me…

Here’s the Poster:
