Nancy Drew Movie Poster

June 12th, 2007 at 9:45 pm » Comments (0)

Well, this film is opening next Friday, so I guess I should say something about it. Not sure what tough, I’m so not the intended audience for this film it’s not even funny. It’s certainly a slick looking poster, and a nice showcases for the star, which might appeal to the pre-teen girl demographic. It [...]



Rocket Science Movie Poster

This is a pretty typical poster for an indie movie. Low key, showcases the critic quotes prominently and features a nice character shot. And that is too bad. Especially if the film actually turns out to be good, like some people who saw it at Sundance are saying. See, with a movie like this you [...]



First SAW IV Poster

“What are we having for dinner, sweety?” “Torture and pain! Mwahahahahahahahah!!!!!” Or, you know, something like that. I, like many other people, have been a big fan of the SAW posters. They always managed to make the films seem special and interesting without having to show too much. Of course, what they did show was [...]



30 Days of Night Movie Poster

I guess this is a nice poster, but I don’t know, I think I was expecting something different from this movie. Something that played with the movie’s premise (vampires in Alaska!) and that managed to showcase the pedigree of the source material. As it is, this is a good execution of a poster for a [...]



I Am Legend Teaser Poster

June 8th, 2007 at 11:15 am » Comments (2)

ComingSoon has the new I Am Legend poster. I’m not a fan of the big letters over an unremarkable image approach. I understand it’s just a teaser poster, so it’s not supposed to show us much. And we will get better, more expressive posters down the line. But still, I wish they used the opportunity [...]



Halloween Poster

I don’t really agree with it, but this comment from the Cinema Bland people is just too good not to repeat: “A guy with a knife. What else do you want?” Well, I want something to indicate that this will be more than just another unnecessary remake. I want a poster that points out what [...]



Hot Rod Poster

The only element that really gives it away that this is a comedy is the silly small red cape. Otherwise this a quite beautiful, very understated poster. I like the poster, and it does make me want to see the movie a little more. But I’m not sure this is the right approach. After all, [...]



Macbeth Movie Poster

(click to enlarge) If it wasn’t for the very recognizable title I wouldn’t have a clue that this was the poster for some sort of Shakespeare adaptation. Instead, I would probably peg it as the poster for some new Horror/Adventure film. Probably one with Vampires. Or Werewolves. Or both. I wonder what the goal of [...]



WAR Movie Poster

June 4th, 2007 at 9:23 pm » Comments (2)

(click to enlarge) The great drawn of this film is obviously Jason Statham and Jet Li going after each other. So, although a poster of the two facing one another might seem a little obvious, it is exactly what the movie’s likely audience wants. And I have to say that it works for me too. [...]



Hairspray Final Poster

June 1st, 2007 at 8:39 pm » Comments (4)

This final poster for Hairspray travels some of the same paths that the earlier posters travelled. Colorful! Fun! Fifties! Music! Star filled ensemble! And it does a good job of packing all that in. But with a musical, more than with any other kind of film, the trailer is the one that is going to [...]
