Final Stardust Poster

May 19th, 2007 at 11:58 am » Comments (0)

Slashfilm has the final Stardust movie poster, and it is, well, ok, but not great. You have the two main characters at the center, brightly illuminated by some sort of star/sun. Then you have several of the other characters floating around in the edges. The over all effect is nice, but a little dull. What [...]

1408 Movie Poster

It’s surprising how much of a difference context makes. If you took the above room photo by itself you would see nothing strange in it. Just an ordinary photo of a room. But add the context of it being a poster for a horror movie based on a Stephen King story and suddenly you see [...]

Mutant Chronicles

think that, as far as teaser posters go, the one above is pretty good. You can’t see any character detail, but it sets up the dark atmosphere and shows clearly enough that they are ready to fight. But, I really like the previous teaser poster for this film much more. This one sends chills through [...]

The Game Plan Poster

Oh. My. God. It’s the rock. And a little kid dressed as a ballerina. And a dog wearing a tiara. Oh. My God. Ok, I’m over the shock. This is actually a pretty standard Disney poster. The movie everyone is immediately reminded of is Vin Diesel’s The Pacifier, and with good reason. The two are [...]

Shrooms Poster

Sure, the moon as a skull thing has been done before. But this is a very good implementation of that concept. It cleverly includes the movie’s premise, which involves a bunch of teenagers getting high on mushrooms. And it also conveys a scary but still humorous mood, which I imagine is what the movie is [...]

Men in Tights: Super-Hero Movie Poster Silliness Throughout the Ages

May 14th, 2007 at 10:59 pm » Comments (11)

While I was “researching” my piece on my favorite super-hero movie posters, I ended up running across quite a few silly examples of the genre. What is it about grown men wearing their underwear over their pants that makes for such silly posters? Hmm, forget I asked that. Anyways, since Spider-Man 3 was once again [...]

Dead or Alive Movie Poster

Add me to the scores of people who are shocked that this is finally, after years of delay, going to make it to the big screen. As for the poster itself, well, it look a lot like this Hero poster: I’m guessing that this is not a coincidence, especially since both films are being released [...]

Triangle Poster

Today the folks over at Twitch Film bring us the official poster for Triangle. The film was directed by Ringo Lam, Tsui Hark and Johnnie To. Each of the three directors apparently helmed 30 minutes of the film. The poster itself in not very inspiring. But it does recall the three heads premise behind the [...]

Yes, Another Hostel 2 Poster

May 13th, 2007 at 11:34 pm » Comments (0)

I have talked about the Hostel 2 posters before. This new poster is closer in look and content to the posters for the original film, which I think is a step in the right direction. But does it get me viscerally scared, disgusted or intrigued? No, not really. Still not interested at all in watching [...]

I already talked about the 28 Weeks Later posters here and here. But to recap: I like them, they made me want to see the movie more.
