In the Valley of Elah Poster

August 22nd, 2007 at 8:52 pm » Comments (0)

This poster for In the Valley of Elah is well made but mostly very typical. The characters, standing against a suggestive background. But there are a couple of things that I found interesting. The first is the absence of Susan Sarandon, which is a little curious because the other two top billed actors appear in [...]

Reservation Road Poster

(click for a large version) This type of poster design, which uses several strips, each generally containing one of the film’s actors, is quite common. For example, this recent poster for Feast of Love uses it too. Of course, within the constraints of this type of design there is still space for a lot of [...]

Trade Poster

Trade is a movie about human sex trafficking. Now, if I had never mentioned that, I’m pretty sure you could have guessed that just by looking at the poster and noting the juxtaposition of the title, the bar code and the girl’s back. I really think this is a powerful poster. Not only because it [...]

Final 3:10 to Yuma Poster

(click for a larger version) Well, here is the final poster for 3:10 to Yuma. As some of you might recall I really loved the first teaser poster, and didn’t much like the second. The final one is kind of in the middle for me. It showcases Russel Crowe and Christian Bale well, and manges [...]

New SAW IV Poster. Kind of.

August 16th, 2007 at 10:48 pm » Comments (2)

(click for a large version) Just for the sake of completeness, here is the new SAW poster, which is pretty much like an old SAW poster, only more in your (his?) face, if you will. Honestly, I thought the old version, which is apparently the international one, was more interesting. I wonder if there was [...]

Michael Clayton Poster

Oh, I really like this poster. Such a distinctive image, it immediately stands out. And the use of this tagline together with the out of focus image of George Clooney is very, very clever, and it give us a good feel for what the film is going to be like and the general themes it [...]

Grace is Gone Poster

I’m not sure what they were trying to do with this poster, but I don’t think it worked very well. There are a couple of things the poster manages to do well. It showcases John Cusack, which will certainly be one of the main draws of the film. Although I don’t particularly like the way [...]

Eastern Promises Poster

August 13th, 2007 at 8:22 pm » Comments (4)

(click for a large version) You know, I understand the urge to add the image strip towards the bottom of the poster with the faces of Viggo Mortensen and Naomi Watts. After all, if you are paying good money for two somewhat known actors you might as well plaster their faces all over the marketing [...]

The Strangers Poster

August 13th, 2007 at 8:02 pm » Comments (3)

(click for a large version) You know, I think that right now that climate is just wrong for a teaser poster featuring a woman covered in blood and looking seriously hurt. After all, Hostel 2 and Captivity, which had the woman in grave distress premise, have bombed. And since they did the criticism of “torture [...]

Dan in Real Life Poster

I’m a really big fan of Steve Carell. Not only is the guy really funny, he also manages, against all odds, to make most of his characters somewhat relatable. And he has such a great face that he manages to do that even in a still image. This poster is a good example. It’s quite [...]
