Wall-E Teaser Poster

September 28th, 2007 at 10:32 pm » Comments (1)

Man, I really, really love this teaser poster for Wall-E. So beautiful and so clearly filled with emotion. It immediately makes me love the little robot. And at the same time, I feel a little sad for him. he looks so lonely in there, looking at the empty sky. Pixar is obviously trying to do [...]



New The Mist Movie Poster

September 28th, 2007 at 10:16 pm » Comments (1)

I was divided about the first poster for The Mist. There were things I liked but I felt that the execution was lacking. Altough this new poster drops some of the interesting aspects of the first, I think it is, overall, a more successful effort. The greatest achievement of the poster is that it manages [...]

Yet more posters from films selected by their respective countries to compete for the best foreign language Oscar. This time just films from European countries.

The Oxford Murders Poster

September 26th, 2007 at 9:41 pm » Comments (1)

If you have a film that takes place in a prestigious university and that involves the use of mathematical symbols in order to solve murders, I think you can do a lot worse than using the imagery of a blackboard filled with mathematical mumbo jumbo and splattered with blood. The blood splatter in this poster [...]



Atonement Movie Poster

You know, I have read that in the book the character of Briony Tallis (played by Saoirse Ronan and Romola Garai in the film) is quite central, but that the character has a much diminished role in the movie. Well, the character’s role in the marketing campaign will apparently be diminished to the point of [...]

If you go over to Jeff Well’s blog you will find a nice discussion of how this poster was influenced by the works of Saul Bass.You will also find a statement from ThinkFilm president Mark Urman about how they wanted an image that had lots of room for review quotes that could be placed in [...]



New No Country for Old Men Movie Posters

September 24th, 2007 at 9:17 pm » Comments (3)

“There are no cleans getaways”,”There are no laws left”,”You can’t stop what’s coming”. Well, I feel depressed already. All kidding aside, I think that these new posters/banners/thingies for No Country for Old Men are quite interesting. They are kind of character posters where the most recognizable characteristic of each character, the face, doesn’t appear. And [...]

Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem Poster

JoBlo brings us this new poster for AvP, and it’s with much chagrin that I have to admit that I kind of like it. After the first AvP turned out to be such a massive disappointment I promised to myself that I wouldn’t care about the sequel. And I still don’t, not really. But the [...]
