Ides of March is a 2011 political drama movie, directed by and starring George Clooney. Clooney plays the fictional Democratic presidential aspirant Mike Morris. A few months ago, I recreated some of the Morris campaign materials as seen in the film:
Over here in the USA, the next election isn’t until November of 2016, but the campaigning began weeks ago. Possibly months ago. We are all sick of it… But then a brilliant idea occurred to me: what if we all voted for Ellen Ripley, the hero of the Nostromo (and LV-426)?
*AND a minor footnote for the pedants: I chose the title lieutenant (Aliens) rather than warrant officer (Alien) because the abbreviation “Lt.” is immediately recognizable, whereas “WO.” is far less well known. Additionally, I’m using a modified Weylan-Yutani winged sun graphic because it looked better than the WY logo from Aliens when they were colored red, white and blue. Additionally, I am using the Weylan-Yutani ‘teal’ color in place of the Obama ‘light blue.’ AND, I know that the chronology of Aliens places the events in Alien around 2122, not 2116. I just wanted to make a little joke.
