Slow Burn Poster

This is sort of a cool poster, practically just the flame with only a bit of the silhouette of the main players showing on the edges. But, the whole poster is just a little too dark for my taste. All the text outside the title is hard to read. A little brighter please. My other [...]



Pathfinder Posters

When I was younger I used to love the Conan The Barbarian comic books. I especially liked looking at the covers for those books, which generally showed the ripped Conan fighting some new frightening menace. This poster for Pathfinder reminds me a lot of those covers, and of the covers of the Conan books I [...]

Hmmmm, I wonder what this poster reminds me of. Oh, that’s right, here it is: If your poster looks like the promotional material for a video game, consider getting a new poster.



Disturbia Poster

As it has been mentioned elsewhere, this poster is very reminiscent of Hitchcock’s Rear Window. As is, in fact, the whole premise of the movie. I don’t think that is such a good idea, from a marketing standpoint. People don’t want to go see something that seems like a cheap knock off of a great [...]



Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer Poster

This new poster for Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer has been making the internet rounds, so I guess I should say something about it, right? What I find most interesting about the poster is that it makes clear that the silver surfer is the biggest drawn of the new film and is going [...]



Perfect Stranger Poster

I think I like this poster much more then I’m going to like the actual picture, which look like it’s going to be pretty bad. Using the reflection of a menacing looking Bruce Willis is certainly more interesting than just having his floating head, and it is just subtle enough. The whole metallic look of [...]



Aqua Teen Hunger Force Movie Poster

Posterwire has a nice post about this particular poster, mentioning the many influences of this poster. Recommended read. I would just like to add that I find very interesting that they would choose to use a very detailed and very realistic image in the poster for a cartoon which is known for it’s crappy drawing [...]



The Hoax Poster

April 9th, 2007 at 12:53 pm » Comments (0)

Do I like this poster? I do, at least in part. It puts Richard Gere front and center, and uses the clever talking balloon design to indicate that the movie is all about the Gere character talking and being slick. Considering the rest of the advertising, I think this is what they were trying to [...]



Inspiration

Robert Rodriguez, talking about how he came up with the woman with a machine gun leg idea: I needed some sensational central image to help get across in a trailer and a poster. People have seen zombies. It needs some other hook. I’ve got the girl with no leg, then suddenly, I just pictured her [...]
