In what may become a weekly thing, here is a round-up of recent posters that for some reason or other didn’t get a full post.
The design here is just original enough to make the look of the poster memorable. Very tasteful too.
I really hated this poster the first time I saw it, but I’m softer on it now. It’s a very typical design, but it’s done well here.
I’m with Ben. Bad poster.
The Great Debaters
The great debaters gets a not so great poster. Once again, a very typical design, including the very typical sepia tone. But this particular instantiation of it looks rather shoddy.
This poster for Cloverfield is exactly like the old poster for Cloverfield, with one small difference: they aren’t hiding the title anymore.
Charlie Wilson’s War
The main message of this poster seems to be: “Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts together! Oh yeah, and that Hoffman guy is in it too.”
The Spiderwick Chronicles
The poster is clever in the way it manages to have many moments and elements from the film in it. But it makes for a very cluttered image.
This poster doesn’t make any strong impression on me, good or bad.
It’s funny that in the poster for a movie called The Walker everybody is sitting down. Great cast tough, and directed by Paul Schrader to boot.
