The Ex Poster

May 10th, 2007 at 9:12 pm » Comments (0)

I find it interesting that the poster sort of hints at, but doesn’t make it clear that the Jason Bateman character is wheelchair bound. That is one aspect of the movie that gets a lot of play in the trailer. Otherwise, it’s mostly a typical characters against a white background poster, but only showing the [...]

Delta Farce Posters

When you are making a movie that is, to some extent, a parody of war movies, picking a famous war movie poster and having some fun with it is a good way to create a memorable and attention grabbing new poster. But although I like the concept, I don’t think this poster goes far enough. [...]

Georgia Rule Poster

By looking at this poster I now know that it stars Jane Fonda, Lindsay Lohan and Felicity Huffman. It also tells me that the marketing people think that Lindsay’s image has been so damaged that Jane Fonda is actually the main attraction of the movie. Overall, not a very interesting poster, is it?

Ten New Hairspray Character Posters

Tommy DiChiara over at Cinematical has just posted ten brand new character posters from Hairspray, and they all look very much like the one above. Sure, the character changes, a little bit of the text changes and each one of the posters has a different, albeit equally loud, background color. But the overall effect is [...]

My 14 Favorite Superhero Movie Posters

Spider-Man has been ruling the movie world these last few days. So, what better time than now to make a list of my favorite posters from superhero movies? Here is what I came up with:

Lucky You Poster

It’s easy to forget that there is another film opening this weekend, since Spider-Man 3 is getting all the attention. But Lucky You, the new Curtis Hanson film, is indeed coming to a screen near you today. The poster itself is pretty standard stuff. Half of it dedicated to showing the stars’ heads, half of [...]

First American Gangster Posters

Nice posters. Very classy. Very stylish. Very dark. The choice of cutting the stars’ head in half is a little odd, but you can still tell who those people are, so I guess it’s okay. However, I do think that the Denzel Washington one has a little too much black and not enough white. The [...]

Six new Potter Posters

Over at JoBlo they have six new Potter character posters. They all follow the same pattern of the one above, showing one of the main characters together with what I’m guessing is a relevant enemy that character will have to face in the movie. I quite like these posters. They follow the same general aesthetic [...]

Invasion Teaser Poster

Now that is a teaser poster. Doesn’t really show anything, but still conveys a sense of pervasive and immediate danger. And it gets you curious. A job well done. (source)

New Transformers Poster

I can’t be the only one who was immediately reminded of this other, completely unrelated poster: Anyway. The new Transformers poster is nice enough. They seem to have decided to not show the robots or the action too much on the promotional material, which is probably a good choice. Save something for the actual film. [...]
