Made of Honor Poster

November 20th, 2007 at 10:38 pm » Comments (2)

So, here is the deal: you either find the idea of Patrick Dempsey as a maid of honor hilarious or you don’t. No poster is going to make you want to see this movie if that basic premise doesn’t appeal to you. At least no poster that is at all honest about the film’s content. [...]

New Wall-E Poster

November 19th, 2007 at 5:40 pm » Comments (0)

I’m stunned at how much emotion the little robot can convey. Unlike the very anthropomorphic characters of Robots, Wall-E looks a lot like a realistic robot. And yet, it is full of expression, even in a still image like this. And I think this combination is at the center of why the character seems so [...]

New Atonement Posters

November 17th, 2007 at 1:15 am » Comments (2)

Like most of the marketing materials for Atonement, these new posters are well made, beautiful and very tasteful. They also scream “this is a classy and very serious period movie.” Although the relationship between the James McAvoy and Keira Knightley characters doesn’t feature as prominently as it did in other posters the overall message is [...]

Third Rambo Poster

Oh, that is just too bad. They were doing so well with the two first posters for Rambo, but they had to go ahead and spoil everything by showing the old man’s face. Ok, that was way too mean. The truth is that this is not a bad poster. It’s very up close and from [...]

Well, At Least It’s Different

November 14th, 2007 at 9:29 pm » Comments (1)

Once upon a time it used be common for comedies to have posters that just featured the characters, generally in some silly pose, against a white background. Well, times have changed and apparently now the new fad is to do the same thing …. but against a green background! Bold. These two posters look quite [...]

Another Rambo Poster

Can it possibly be true? Yes, I guess it can. They made another good poster for John Rambo (or is it just Rambo?). Perhaps this is a sign that the movie might not totally suck? Probably not. The strength of this poster is in it’s simplicity, which makes the message powerful and clear. Rambo no [...]

The Eye Poster

(click for a large version) I talked several times this year about the SAW posters. They were very effective in their time, and they still seem to work for the SAW movies themselves. But the style is a played out, which means that it’s time to find new ways to promote other horror movies. Well, [...]

Lots of Golden Compass Posters

November 8th, 2007 at 9:01 pm » Comments (1)

I know The Golden Compass is a big movie and all, but man it has had a lot of posters. The latest ones are another batch of character posters. They are very different from the last batch of character posters, even tough some of the same characters appear. The new posters are, in general, very [...]

American Poster for The Orphanage

November 7th, 2007 at 9:01 pm » Comments (0)

I basically agree with Chris on this one: this poster is very understated, and it manages to be creepy and effective exactly because of that. And something like this is probably the right way to sell a horror/thriller right now. However, I can’t help but to compare it to the original Spanish posters, some of [...]

Jumper Poster

I actually still don’t know exactly what Jumper is about. I know there was a trailer, but I never got around to watching that. And every time I read something about the movie I tend to space out as I get to the plot description. But thanks to this poster I know have an inkling [...]
