New Fred Claus Movie Poster

September 21st, 2007 at 9:16 pm » Comments (3)

I didn’t like the earlier Fred Claus posters, and I think I like this one even less. And I really don’t like what they say about the movie. What is the problem? It’s Vince Vaughn in a tricycle, looking like a 5-year-old. It’s Giamatti’s overly theatrical expression. It’s all the elfs. It’s, in other words, [...]



Fright Night Poster

So, apparently Sony is putting in motion a possible Fright Night remake. I’m not particularly interested in yet another remake of a beloved horror movie, but this news did remind me of how much I love the poster for the original. Of course, I first encountered that image in the cover of the VHS, since [...]



I’m Not There Poster

September 19th, 2007 at 8:58 pm » Comments (5)

This poster for I’m Not There resembles in some ways the poster for another film about a famous singer. Like the poster for Control, this one showcases the character at the center of the movie, using a beautiful photo that mostly focus on his face. But, like I said in the post about the Control [...]



I Just Didn’t Do It and Persepolis Posters

September 19th, 2007 at 12:06 am » Comments (0)

It seems awfully early to me, but several countries are already selecting their entries to compete for next year’s Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. The latest are Japan, which selected “I Just Didn’t Do It” and France, which selected “Persepolis”. And I know that right now you are wondering what their posters look like, right? [...]



First The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian Poster

September 18th, 2007 at 7:45 am » Comments (0)

I didn’t much like the original Chronicles of Narnia film, but I thought the marketing materials were excellent. They properly conveyed a sense of wonder and an epic scope, but managed to still make the movie seem accessible. And I mean the “I can take my kids to see this” kind of accessible. This poster [...]



Youth Without Youth Poster

September 17th, 2007 at 7:41 pm » Comments (1)

I really have no idea what they were trying to do with this poster. It’s dominated by images of roses, assembled in a pattern that doesn’t seem to have any meaning. Then there is the swastika, which at least tells us something about the movie, but which I honestly didn’t even notice the first time [...]



New 30 Days of Night Posters

September 17th, 2007 at 7:21 pm » Comments (1)

These new character posters for 30 Days of Night are quite similar to the first poster, and I feel about them much like I felt about that earlier attempt: not bad, but they don’t seem to convey the intriguing premise at all, and (partially) because of that they don’t really tell us why this vampire [...]



Exodus Poster

September 13th, 2007 at 8:12 pm » Comments (1)

I think this needs some explanation. Exodus is the new film from director Ho-Cheung Pang. It’s supposedly a crime story with some comedy and it involves a policeman the catches a guy peeping into a ladies bathroom. The peeping tom claims that the women are arranging a plot to get rid of all the men, [...]



Final Southland Tales Poster

September 12th, 2007 at 10:11 pm » Comments (1)

Could it be true? A final poster for Southland Tales? Does this mean the movie will actually get released this time? Impressive. Ok, now that I’m over the shock, let me take a look at the poster. Well, there is certainly a lot going on in there, isn’t it? We have the faces of many [...]



Love in the Time of Cholera Movie Poster

September 12th, 2007 at 9:26 pm » Comments (3)

There are several elements about Love in the time of Cholera that could get movie goers interested in the film. There is the title itself, which is quite striking. There is the fact that this is an adaptation of a book by the great Gabriel García Márquez . There is Javier Bardem, who isn’t a [...]
