(x) Tristan & Isolde movie logo - Franklin Gothic {Patricia}

hi guys+girls

any chance of a helping hand with id'ing this typeface. i was heading towards akzidenz grotesk super... but.. didn't get there...

thanks in advance


A sample would, you know, help.

It's Franklin Gothic Heavy I think.

Franklin Gothic of some kind, I venture.

Patty is right, I just finished a layout using that typeface here at work and it matches up!

pretty embarrasing not recognising franklin gothic... thank you all for your help

WTH! What does Franklin Gothic have to do with this story? Sheesh. Talk about mis-cast.

Wagner would cringe. Some stories call for blackletter, eh Tiff?


Or a nice uncial. At least!!!

Franklin Gothic & other bold sans (Brokeback Mountain, Firewall, Syriana) seem to be vying with Trajan as font du jour on the movie posters these days, altho Trajan is putting up a good fight (Geisha, Tristram Shandy, Final Destination).

That said, I agree it's all wrong for Tristan & Isolde.
