Southland Tales UK Quad

October 15th, 2007 at 7:30 pm » Comments (2)

Strange. That is one word that could be used to describe Donnie Darko, the first feature film from director Richard Kelly. And I’m sure it will also describe his second film, Southland Tales. But the question is, will Tales be the good kind of strange? Darko certainly was, so there is some hope. This UK [...]



The Latest Fred Claus Poster

October 15th, 2007 at 7:29 pm » Comments (3)

I think I said what I had to say about the Fred Claus marketing campaign when I talked about the last poster. But I’ll just add that besides my already stated objections, I think this poster looks dull in a way that the previous ones didn’t. At least the ones that came before used some [...]



P2 Poster

I don’t understand the choice to use this kind of drawing on the poster. The style of the artwork reminds me of the cover of cheap pulp mystery novels and of the box art of second rate computer games. Not flattering comparisons, I think. A very weird choice. (Via IMPAwards)



It Came From Korea

October 12th, 2007 at 3:15 pm » Comments (0)

Even tough the box-office take of Korean horror movies was lackluster this year, as was, to be fair, the box-office of most Korean movies, the genre apparently had a bit of a creative revival. And as it turns out many of these horror movies had very creative posters, as you can see for yourselves below. [...]



Final The Golden Compass Posters

October 11th, 2007 at 11:21 pm » Comments (3)

I always thought that the armored white bear was the most interesting thing to be found in any of the previous Golden Compass posters. So I’m very happy to see another poster bringing some more bear action, and I like the fact that the collage poster below puts the girl on the bear at the [...]



I Am Legend Poster

October 10th, 2007 at 10:16 pm » Comments (0)

I thought that the first trailer for I Am Legend used the sight of a desolated and destroyed New York to very good effect. And I think the new poster does the same. The background gives a sense of the film’s setting and story, and it makes the whole poster much more interesting to look [...]



Can You Tell What is Offensive About This Poster?

October 8th, 2007 at 8:07 pm » Comments (2)

This poster, for Takashi Miike Sukiyaki Western: Django, turned out to be a little controversial in Japan, which led to it being substituted by the poster below. Twitch explains why.



A Great Fix You Can Have Right Now

October 8th, 2007 at 7:49 pm » Comments (0)

Chris pointed out this very interesting site which has a list of all the movies nominated by their respective countries to compete for the best foreign language film Oscar. The site includes, among other things, a small res version of the movie’s poster. I’m still going to make a few more posts about the foreign [...]



Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead Poster – The Black Version

October 8th, 2007 at 7:40 pm » Comments (2)

I didn’t like the first poster for Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead because I thought the tone the poster conveyed was too light for the movie. This new poster is basically exactly like the last one, but with a black background, white letters and a new tagline. The new background does give the poster [...]



Bee Movie Poster

October 5th, 2007 at 10:42 pm » Comments (1)

You know, when I saw the “ball hits bee” scene in the trailer for Bee Movie I didn’t find it funny. Seeing what amounts to a still of that same scene doesn’t make it any funnier. And since we are talking about unfunny things, that tagline? Honey just got funny? Yeah, not doing it for [...]
