First Indiana Jones IV Teaser Poster

July 30th, 2007 at 7:21 pm » Comments (5)

I think that when it comes to a film like Indy 4 the job of the marketing department isn’t so much to sell the movie as it is to not “unsell” it. There are already millions of people who know Indiana Jones and who are pre-sold on going to see the new movie. However, many [...]

New SAW IV Poster

July 29th, 2007 at 10:31 pm » Comments (5)

(click for a larger version) Just a few days ago I was commenting that I liked that the last SAW poster didn’t try to somehow squeeze a 4 into the image. And now this new poster is released. I swear I think they did it just to spite me. All kidding aside, it turns out [...]

Sweeney Todd Poster

When it comes to anything related to Tim Burton’s work we can generally expect something dark and a bit weird, but also with a strange sense of humor to it. This poster for Sweeney Todd mostly lacks any humor at all. But otherwise it fits. It’s very dark, not only in it’s color but also [...]

First Cloverfield Poster

July 29th, 2007 at 6:51 pm » Comments (1)

If you saw the Cloverfield (aka 1-18-00) trailer you know that at the end we get the shocking image of the head of the Statue of Liberty rolling down the street. Apparently they decided that this was a very effective approach and they went with a beheaded Statue of Liberty as the main visual attraction [...]

SAW IV Poster

July 26th, 2007 at 10:46 pm » Comments (4)

The general look of the SAW posters has always been pretty consistent, and this new one is no different. The main departure we have here is that the featured body part is a very recognizable head. In the posters for earlier installments of this series the body parts were always anonymous, so to speak. They [...]

Dragon Wars Poster

July 26th, 2007 at 10:36 pm » Comments (0)

Via ShockTillYouDrop we have the first American poster for Dragon Wars (or D-War). It’s very similar to the third Korean poster we covered here, with a few key differences. The first is that we have the introduction of another monster, and together with it comes the idea that this movie focuses on a battle between [...]

3:10 to Yuma Poster

July 24th, 2007 at 8:15 pm » Comments (5)

(click for a large version) Now this is something different. The new 3:10 to Yuma poster is quite beautiful, and remarkable in several aspects. The first being that it doesn’t show the faces of the two top actors, something that is unusual considering that both Christian Bale and Russel Crowe are so well known. It’s [...]

The Host Posters

July 24th, 2007 at 6:50 pm » Comments (0)

Since I have been talking about Korean monster movies, and since The Host was released in DVD today, it seems like a good time to post a these posters. The above poster, which seems to be the main American poster (and the cover of the DVD), is actually the one a like the least. The [...]

D-War Character Posters

July 22nd, 2007 at 12:35 pm » Comments (1)

TwitchFilm points out these four new character posters for Korean monster movie D-War. I covered posters for this movie previously here and here. Those older posters all focused on the giant snake attacking Los Angeles. The new posters expand the movies universe a little, showing new monsters and other settings beyond L.A. The new posters [...]

No Country for Old Men Poster

July 22nd, 2007 at 12:09 pm » Comments (0)

My impression is that No Country for Old Men will be significantly darker and more serious than most Coen’s movies. The poster seems to confirm that impression. It’s a simple poster really. A man holding a shotgun running through some desolated landscape, with Javier Bardem’s menacing eyes looming behind him. But it does a good [...]
