The Golden Compass Poster

July 12th, 2007 at 9:00 pm » Comments (3)

Via Cinematical we have the new poster for The Golden Compass, and four new character posters which are basically blown up versions of parts of the main poster. The main poster really has a little something for everybody. We have Daniel Craig for the Bond fans and for the ladies. We have Kidman for the [...]



All the Boys Love Mandy Lane Poster

July 11th, 2007 at 9:00 pm » Comments (1)

This poster for the small horror flick All the Boys Love Mandy Lane certainly is striking. The fiery background and the characters, which are mostly covered in shadows, do call attention to themselves and make for an interesting image. But I don’t really like the poster, mostly because it doesn’t look like a poster for [...]



My, How You’ve Grown, Harry Potter

July 9th, 2007 at 10:42 pm » Comments (6)

I was taking a look at the posters for the earlier Harry Potter films and was quite shocked to see how much Daniel Radcliffe changed over the years. I shouldn’t have been so shocked, after all it’s been six years since the original film was released, and Radcliffe was only 12 at the time (probably [...]



Five Fred Claus Posters

July 8th, 2007 at 1:20 pm » Comments (3)

In theory the idea of Vince Vaughn playing the black sheep of the Claus family sounds hilarious. But these posters aren’t doing much to sell what should be an extremely easy to sell movie. As a matter of fact, all the elf action is making the film seem quite silly. And not in the good [...]



Hitman Teaser Poster

July 8th, 2007 at 1:01 pm » Comments (1)

So, this Hitman thing, I understand it’s some sort of electronic game that the young people are playing nowadays? I’m so clueless about modern games it’s not even funny. And I know nothing about Hitman, so the poster above does nothing for me. It’s probably fine as a teaser poster, as long as it means [...]



Lust, Caution Poster

(click for a large version) Focus Features has just released this new poster for Ang Lee’s Lust, Caution, and I think it’s a thing of beauty. Very creative positioning of the actors and use of shadows. And I love how the title was rendered as if it was just another shadow being projected on the [...]



The Third D-War Poster

July 6th, 2007 at 9:15 am » Comments (3)

TwitchFilm alerts us to the third poster for the Korean monster movie D-War. And I find that this poster, much like the previous ones, is very cool. I think that my fascination with these posters has a lot to do with the fact that I have always liked giant monster movies, and have always been [...]



And Now, for Something a Little Darker…

July 6th, 2007 at 9:00 am » Comments (0)

Here are two poster for two different upcoming horror films. Above we have a poster for 100 Tears, found via IMPAwards. Below, an international poster for Catacombs, via WorstPreviews. The poster for 100 tears takes a more in your face approach to the gore. And it is, in my opinion, quite creepy. But, it uses [...]



Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium Poster

July 5th, 2007 at 10:12 pm » Comments (1)

When I first saw the trailer for Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium I got the distinct impression that the marketing department was mostly targeting kids. The poster gives me the same impression. It’s colorful, it’s bright, it has a bunch of stuff flying around and it has Dustin Hoffman with a very silly grin. What it [...]



The Invasion Poster

July 4th, 2007 at 7:17 pm » Comments (3)

I don’t really like this poster. It does manages to remind people that the film stars Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman. And I do like how Craig’s blue eyes stand out and the general expression on Kidman’s face. But overall the poster fails to make the movie look more interesting. I guess the intent here [...]
