(click to enlarge) I kind of like this poster. The movie is all about one very creepy, very precocious kid. The very large painting of the kid, so well dressed, with the actual kid staring at it does a good job of telling us that he is not your average child, and that he probably [...]



Knocked Up Posters

I really love this poster. It is, to some extent, just a head shot. But when coupled with the tagline, it’s the perfect image for this movie, telling you exactly what the film is about and why you might want to see it. No, of course you wouldn’t want to have a baby with this [...]



Another Day, Another Transformers Poster

May 28th, 2007 at 10:19 pm » Comments (0)

This new poster combines several elements we have see before, such as the face of Optimus, the skyline and Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox standing together. We do get to see more of Megatron than we did before, tough. I don’t much like this poster. Too cluttered, and the various elements don’t mesh together very [...]



I Know Who Killed Me Poster

I’m guessing that the blue rose, which also appears on one of the publicly released photos, is somehow important for the plot. It also makes for a very memorable and striking image. And the little blood drop in the bottom is a subtle but smart reference to the topic of the movie. All that said, [...]



New International Transformers Posters

May 26th, 2007 at 5:55 pm » Comments (0)

My main worry about the Transformers movie was that they wouldn’t be able to make the robots look right. The trailers, posters and photos I have seen so far have assuaged me of that fear. These new posters bring some of it back tough. To me, the robots look strange in these new ones. The [...]



1408 Final Poster

May 25th, 2007 at 9:55 pm » Comments (0)

I complained that the 1408 teaser poster was too subtle. Well, the new (and supposedly final) one is a lot less subtle. On the other hand, it is a lot more ugly. They seem to have overdone the gritty, dirty and scratchy look without much need. So, it ends up “uglyfying” the poster without adding [...]



Descent Poster

Descent is a movie that recently played in the Tribeca film festival. It follows the story of a woman who is raped and then seeks revenge. Bloddy revenge. I’m guessing you know the type of movie. But, do you get any of that from the poster? Do you get the sense that this is a [...]



The Dark is Rising Poster

I like the way this poster looks.The whole flare effect is well done and interesting to look at. But, it tells me exactly nothing about the movie. Add to that a title that is itself enigmatic and you have a poster that is likely to leave people scratching their heads. Even in a teaser poster [...]



Good Luck Chuck Posters

I think I hate Dane Cook. Well, perhaps hate is too strong a word, but I find him completely unfunny. I say this not to be mean, but only because I think my feelings about him might be affecting my feelings about these posters. There is a part of my brain that thinks that those [...]



Sicko Posters

May 22nd, 2007 at 8:43 pm » Comments (2)

Whatever you think about Michael Moore and his movies, one has to admit that the marketing materials for them have been excellent. And these posters for Sicko are no different. The general design is one that we have seen before in the Fahrenheit 9/11 poster: Michael Moore + some comic elements + clear references to [...]
