A Typeface in Donnie Darko Movie Trailer

The trailer for the Director's Cut DVD of the movie Donnie Darko contains two frames showing text in the typeface NeuAltisch.

NeuAltisch is a calligraphic version of Fraktur, but one which has taken many liberties with the basic design. The lower-case letters are less angular, and the upper-case-letters have moved a bit away from the traditional forms. (What is Fraktur? It is a medieval style that lasted in Germany as a text font into the 20th century.)


NeuAltisch is available for sale at myfonts.com.
