International The Dark Knight Poster – Joker Edition

December 14th, 2007 at 9:33 am » Comments (1)

Well, that didn’t take long. So, I had just written a post on the first international poster for The Dark Knight, a post in which I mention, among other things, that it’s nice to see a piece of marketing for the film that doesn’t involve the Joker. Then I go online and what do I [...]



The Dark Knight Poster

December 14th, 2007 at 9:15 am » Comments (3)

Batman, alone, in his big empty apartment. Overlooking the city he has to protect. Yeah, I dig it. Most of the marketing for The Dark Knight so far has focused on the Joker, and that is completely understandable. After all, seeing the Chris Nolan vision of the classic character is one of the biggest draws [...]



Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay Poster

Comedy is hard. And not only hard to do, hard to comment on too. It’s one of those things were tastes differ widely and there is very little one can argue about. Either something makes you laugh or it doesn’t, nothing I or anybody else says is going to change that. I didn’t like the [...]



New The Great Debaters Poster

December 13th, 2007 at 9:27 pm » Comments (1)

There are a few things about this poster that I like. The retro look, for one, is very well done and matches well with the fact that this is a period piece. The yellow background is a little “loud”, but it does contribute to the retro look and it makes the image stand out a [...]



New Spiderwick Chronicles Posters

December 12th, 2007 at 9:06 pm » Comments (1)

This new Spiderwick Chronicles poster uses much of the image of the first poster, but adds some darker colors, a few little monsters and a beware sign. So, it basically turns what was a teaser poster that hinted at the possibility of magic and danger into a poster that shows us those things. It also [...]



International Jumper Poster

December 12th, 2007 at 9:06 pm » Comments (0)

I really liked the previous Jumper poster because it made me realize, for the first time, how cool the concept behind the movie (a guy that can teleport himself) could be. Considering how unusual the premise is that was a tricky thing to accomplish. This new international poster, on the other hand, doesn’t even try [...]



Row Three

If you’ve been reading this site long enough you may have noticed the comments of Andrew James and John Allison, and you might even have noticed me linking to their sites (MoviePatron and FilmGrotto) from time to time. Well, Andrew and John recently got together with three other bloggers (Marina Antunes,Jonathan Burdick and Kurt Halfyard) [...]



The Posters for the Foreign Language Oscar Contenders

December 11th, 2007 at 11:56 pm » Comments (0)

Remember when I said that I was going to do more posts showcasing posters from the films selected by their respective countries to compete for the foreign language Oscar? You don’t? That’s probably because it was such a long time ago. To compensate for all the waiting here is a mega post with posters for [...]



Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Poster

December 10th, 2007 at 9:22 am » Comments (4)

(click for a larger version) The official Indiana Jones site has just released this poster for the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which apparently gives us a a view of said crystal skull. Is this a great poster? No. Is it as good as the classic posters for the previous [...]



The Happening Poster

December 7th, 2007 at 8:29 pm » Comments (4)

I think that the most telling aspect of this poster is the text: “We’ve sensed, We’ve seen the signs, Now… It’s Happening.” In case you didn’t get it (I didn’t the first time) the text is a not too veiled reference to Sixth Sense and Signs, the two most commercially successful movies from director M. [...]
