Iron Man Teaser Poster

Oh, that Iron Man. Such a tease! Show us more Iron Man! Honestly, this is a pretty great teaser. Shows very little, but enough to make Iron Man look really cool. Probably not gonna have that much effect with people who haven’t had much exposure to the image of Iron Man, but you can try [...]

10,000 BC Poster

In theory, I really like this poster. It conveys well how small and seemingly defenseless man is when matched with the enormous and powerful mammoth, having only primitive weapons to defend himself. And I think that goes to the main appeal of the movie: showing the primitive man as he tackles a world that is [...]

Martian Child Poster

There are many similarities between this poster for Martian Child and the poster for last year’s The Pursuit of Happyness. But the one I find most remarkable is that the two posters use a fake looking flare effect between the two actors. Weird. And I didn’t like it them, still don’t like it now. Besides [...]

How is it possible that there is a film being made that stars Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson and Eric Bana and I knew nothing about it? Well, I’m not sure how that happened, but I think the poster does a good job of getting me up to speed. Portman and Johansson as sisters in a [...]

Walk Hard Poster

When it comes to a film the parodies real people or other movies, using a spoof of a famous image associated with said people/movies is a very normal way to build a poster. Not all that original, but it can be very effective. And images don’t get much more iconic than the one of the [...]

National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets Poster

October 2nd, 2007 at 11:48 am » Comments (2)

When it comes to a big, by the numbers studio movie like National Treasure 2, I don’t often expect anything original from the poster. But I do expect the poster to be very well made, slick and for it to transmit one clear marketing message. So I have to wonder, what the hell went wrong [...]

Funny Games Poster

I find this poster upsetting in a very visceral way. This closeup image of a crying Naomi Watts just has a certain rawness that makes it disturbing in a way that I don’t often find movie posters to be. And even the placement of the title and credits helps to make the poster feel slightly [...]
