Run, Fatboy, Run Movie Poster

August 31st, 2007 at 8:08 pm » Comments (1)

This poster for Run, Fatboy, Run makes me think of the poster for Superbad, not because of the similarities, but because of the differences. Superbad is a comedy without any well known stars in it. And yet the poster gets a lot of mileage by showing the main characters looking, at the same time, awkwardly [...]



Elizabeth: The Golden Age Poster

(click for a larger version) I think that when you talk about the Elizabeth most people immediately remember Cate Blanchett’s performance as the title character. It’s a great film that has a lot going for it, but that performance really is something else, and I believe that it is the main reason why the movie [...]



Rendition Movie Poster

When I was talking about the poster for Reservation Road I mentioned the popularity of the strips poster design, where the poster is divided in strips and each strip has one or two of the main characters. I think I will cal this variation “dirty strips”. It’s like the normal strips poster, but with RAGGED [...]



Sisters Movie Poster

Via Bloody Disgusting we have two posters for the remake of of the classic Brian De Palma film Sisters. The one above, let’s call it the original, and a slight variation on it that can be seen below. I quite like the original . The old photograph look makes it quite distinctive. And despite the [...]



New Beowulf Poster

Like I said before, main main worry with this film is that the animation technique they are using might not work for me. I totally trust the people involved with the film to deliver a great story presented beautifully. But if the underlying animation technique leaves me cold it won’t matter how well everything else [...]



Killers From Space and Wild Women Of Wongo Posters

As you people might or might not already know, three of the guys from Mystery Science Theater 3000, Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, have reunited in order to do some MST3000 style commentary tracks of bad movies. The call themselves The Film Crew and recently they have tackled the somewhat cult classic Killers [...]



The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford Poster

August 27th, 2007 at 7:16 pm » Comments (0)

I have heard the title “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” many, many times over the last year. And yet, somehow I didn’t realize who Jesse James was and never bothered to look up what the film was about. Still, I felt this was a strong and memorable title, even tough [...]



The Water Horse Poster

A cute looking and smiling mythical animal who is obviously still a baby. In a bathtub. The perfect image to grab the attention of the little kids and to make every adult run as far as possible. The marketing for The Water Horse seems to be aiming really young. And not in the “fun for [...]



Right At Your Door Poster

We meet again, Mr. hazard suit man. Some of you might remember seeing this poster for 28 Weeks Later earlier this year. I liked the 28 weeks Later poster. The one for Right At Your Door not so much. Although the latter does manage to convey that basic premise of the movie (a dirty bomb [...]



The Heartbreak Kid Poster

Uhmm, this is an interesting variation. There are many comedy posters like this, with the title treatment in the bottom against a white background and some image occupying most of the rest of the poster. But in this case instead of the image being some inane depiction of the main characters together, like what we [...]
