    From IMDb:

    1930’s Hollywood is reevaluated through the eyes of scathing social critic and alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz as he races to finish the screenplay of Citizen Kane (1941).

    David Fincher and Neil Kellerhouse continue their working relationship that in the past saw designs for The Social Network, Gone Girl, and Mindhunter. The main poster is based around a painting by Anna Park. Kellerhouse chose Pacioli for a great degree of Mank’s promotional campaign. The most unexpected use I saw was in the title design for the film, where Pacioli gets a 3-D rendering. The Mank wordmark is probably custom lettering. Reporter is vaguely related.
