Merry Christmas

Hope Santa left everybody a nice new poster for that empty wall. Updates should range from sparse to non-existent over the next week, but next year should bring more content than ever. See you soon.

Horton Hears a Who Posters

December 21st, 2007 at 10:04 pm » Comments (4)

These posters for Horton Hears a Who are in many ways typical of animated movies. Cuddly adorable characters standing against a background made of a bright color. The character posters are quite sparse, with a very small title treatment and with the character themselves often not occupying that much space in the poster. But I [...]

The Forbidden Kingdom Poster

December 19th, 2007 at 11:19 pm » Comments (1)

This poster for The Forbidden Kingdom is very forgettable. Some generic ancient Chinese imagery, four guys we can’t recognize with their backs to us, and a text that, even if it was interesting, is way too small to be read. This film has, supposedly, two things going for it: some amazing visuals and, by far [...]

MPAA Rejects the Poster for Taxi to the Dark Side

December 19th, 2007 at 11:01 pm » Comments (1)

A little while ago I made a post compiling the posters for the docs short listed by the Academy. One of the few films for which I couldn’t find a poster was Taxi to the Dark Side, a documentary about the the torture practices of the United States in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay. Well, [...]

My Name is Bruce Posters

December 18th, 2007 at 11:24 pm » Comments (2)

Bruce Campbell directs a film starring Bruce Campbell as Bruce Campbell. And fanboys all over the world rejoice. I love these posters. They have just the right kind of gory and endlessly self-referential humor I hope to see in the film itself. Now, they obviously aren’t meant to appeal to a broad audience. If you [...]

Meet the Spartans Poster

December 18th, 2007 at 11:06 pm » Comments (5)

I’m a little confused, perhaps you people can help me out here. Wasn’t this movie called Epic Movie? Didn’t it get released last year? Didn’t it suck, hard? Have we learned nothing from that? Even moving beyond the similarities with Epic Movie and the obvious excess of building a movie around a spoof of a [...]

First Speed Racer Poster

December 17th, 2007 at 10:08 pm » Comments (4)

First things first: this teaser poster for Speed Racer is apparently lenticular (isn’t that a fun word?) in it’s non electronic incarnation, which means that it’s one of those posters that changes as you move around it. So, it’s impossible to get an accurate idea of the poster’s full effect from this online image. And [...]

Second 10,000 BC Poster

December 17th, 2007 at 9:35 am » Comments (5)

I’m not sure I understand what is going on in this poster. Is there some kind of war going on down there? And if that is the case why is the dude fighting a sabertooth? Shouldn’t he be more worried about the fight below? Confusion aside, this poster is very consistent with the previous poster, [...]

The Dark Knight Movie Poster – Why So Serious Edition

December 17th, 2007 at 9:15 am » Comments (22)

And here is the third Dark Knight poster released last week, this one a domestic poster that keeps the Why So Serious campaign going on. I find this poster a lot less exciting then the one-two punch of the international posters. Not because it’s a bad poster, it isn’t. In fact it fits very well [...]

New The Eye Movie Poster

December 15th, 2007 at 4:08 am » Comments (6)

(click for a larger version) This new poster for The Eye is very … blue. After the very weird and oddly upsetting first poster this one is a bit of a letdown. So much less interesting. But I have to admit that it probably does a better job of telling people what the movie is [...]
