The Darjeeling Limited Poster

July 22nd, 2007 at 11:43 am » Comments (3)

Like Chris from Movie Marketing Madness says, the title font in this poster closely resembles the one used in Wes Anderson’s previous film, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou , which I find really cool. Wouldn’t it be nice if they kept doing this for every Wes Anderson film? Then you could say, “Yes, that [...]



From Moulin Rouge to Hairspray – Posters from Recent Musicals

July 20th, 2007 at 10:13 pm » Comments (2)

Moulin Rouge was released in 2001 and it managed to do two impressive things: it made a decent amount of money and it was nominated for a best picture Oscar. Those two things were made a lot more amazing because the movie happened to be a musical, a genre many people thought was as good [...]



I Now Pronounce you Chuck and Larry Poster

When it comes to movie marketing, selling an Adam Sandler movie has to be one of the easiest gigs possible. The guy has a very consistent and pretty large following, which sees pretty much all of his movies as long as they look like typical Adam Sandler fare. And many of the films he makes [...]



Gone Baby Gone Poster

July 19th, 2007 at 11:06 pm » Comments (1)

There are two main elements to this poster. The first is the city, represented by the skyline. I’m guessing that people how know Boston will find it easily recognizable, but I don’t know Boston so I could very well be wrong. Still, it gives us a good feeling of the place where the movie takes [...]



Dedication Poster

When I first saw this poster I was immediately reminded of the poster for The Squid and the Whale, for what I think are fairly obvious reasons. Despite the similarities I think that the poster for The Squid and the Whale is much better. It’s sharper and has a cleaner look. It also does a [...]



Death Sentence ComiCon Poster

July 18th, 2007 at 10:49 am » Comments (2)

Via WorstPreviews we have a ComicCon exclusive poster for Death Sentence. And it is indeed better than the original Death Sentence poster. At least in this one we get a better sense of the main character. The fact that he is under great stress and that he is having some very violent encounters is quite [...]



The Spiderwick Chronicles Teaser Poster

July 17th, 2007 at 9:08 pm » Comments (2)

I was very impressed by the trailer for The Spiderwick Chronicles. It made the movie seem a lot more interesting and a little darker than I expected. In fact, it made me think that there is a chance I might actually enjoy the movie. This poster, on the other hand, reminds me of why I [...]



Jaws Poster

July 16th, 2007 at 9:03 pm » Comments (1)

Things are a little slow in the new posters front today, so instead of commenting on a poster I don’t have much interest in, I decided to revisit one of my all time favorites. What I find funny about this poster is that Jaws, the movie, is famous for hiding the shark throughout most of [...]



Death Sentence Poster

(click for a larger version) Have I mentioned that I dislike these types of posters where some huge text takes most of the space? I guess I have. Well, this one is no different. Posters are really better at showing than at telling. Sure, a well placed tagline can do wonders, but those mostly work [...]



Rogue Movie Poster

July 12th, 2007 at 9:02 pm » Comments (0)

Here is the new poster for giant killer croc movie Rogue. As other people have pointed out, it’s very reminiscent of posters from other movies, especially the poster for Jaws. Then again, most giant croc movies follow the Jaws formula, so at least this poster doesn’t try to pretend otherwise. The poster also doesn’t follow [...]
