What is the font used for the title in this poster for Being John Malkovich? Details are welcome - light, bold, etc. Thanks.

Response by poster: I forgot to ask: if you have ideas on where I might find a hi-res version of the poster, that'd be great too. Thanks.

When in doubt, whatthefont it. ITC Kabel Demi.

In the future, if WhatTheFont fails you, you could always try Typophile's TypeID board. That's generally where I go if I don't get any matches on WhatTheFont.

the font on the poster is definitely not ITC Kabel Demi. note the 'k' and the 'c'.

Best answer: Almost certainly ITC Kabel Medium

Slightly larger version here. Not exactly hi-res though.

n-thing Kabel. The attempt at creating the faux-small-caps by simply scaling the capital B, J, M of the movie title, however, is awful. Sorry, my inner typophile had to chime in on that.
