Change Nightcrawler's Poster Image
I noticed most posters used, for new movies at least, they avoid displaying credits. However, the image used for Nightcrawler still displays Jake Gyllenhaal over the title wordmark.
I assume you use the same posters as TMDb, so I was wondering why you don't use the main poster currently displayed on their Nightcrawler page? I think it's much more aesthetically appealing as well consistent with the overall Letterboxd vibe.
Just my 2 cents,
We usually prefer “naked” posters (sans credit blocks) and will switch these out if we can.
I can't seem to post new ides (something about my votes being used up?) Anyway, I just thought I'd ask here, on the off chance of a reply, what the deal is with the poser for Trainspotting T2? The one on TMDB right now was previously the one on LB but that's changed now to a different one. Both are 'naked' posters, so I'm wondering why the one on TMDB isn't the one on LB?

While I am it, the TMDb homepage image for these 2013 films are all also lacking titles and credits on their poster;
The Way Way Back
12 Years a Slave
Inside Llewyn Davis, and;
There is also a poster for Prisoners on the TMDb site exactly the same as the one currently displayed here on Letterboxd sans the director's name.
I don't mean to sound pedantic, but the poster image display is in large part what attracted me to this site in the first place and I would like to see Letterbodx maintain its present, inspiring design standard. I think updating the posters for these movies (including Nightcrawler) is crucial.
