New Meet The Browns Poster

January 31st, 2008 at 10:50 pm » Comments (4)

(click for a large version) Well, I guess the streak of me liking the posters for Tyler Perry’s movies had to end at some point. This new poster for Meet the Browns takes the very subtle first teaser poster and adds a bunch of things. A big title treatment. Tyler Perry (I’m guessing) in a [...]



New In Bruges Poster

January 31st, 2008 at 10:04 am » Comments (1)

I really liked the first poster for In Bruges, which opted for a postcard look which I thought was quite creative and fun. So I’m a little disappointed to see that the new posters go for a much more traditional. Just the main characters in the traditional v-formation. That doesn’t make it necessarily bad, but [...]



New The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian Poster

January 31st, 2008 at 9:23 am » Comments (5)

So here we have the second poster for Prince Caspian, and it’s very consistent with the first poster. We have essentially the same colors and they are similarly distributed in the poster in a way that by itself would make the connection to the first poster obvious. Quite a strong unique visual identity they achieve [...]



New Forbidden kingdom Character Posters

January 30th, 2008 at 11:05 pm » Comments (1)

After the dreadful first poster there really wasn’t much way to go but up. But even considering that I’m still positively surprised by these posters for The Forbidden Kingdom. They give us a really good look at the main characters in the movie, and as it turns out each of them does have a very [...]



New Hellboy II Character Poster – Johann Krauss

January 30th, 2008 at 10:29 pm » Comments (4)

The first three character posters for Hellboy II were all about getting reacquainted with old friends. They didn’t show us anything different from what we had seen in the first Hellboy, but they were a nice way of reminding people that those characters are coming back to the big screen. This new poster, on the [...]



International Get Smart Posters

January 29th, 2008 at 11:14 pm » Comments (0)

This happens every one in a while. A poster comes out for a film and I don’t like it, so I do a post criticizing the poster, often harshly. Then another poster for the movie comes out that is so awful, I’m forced to go back on my word and say that the first poster [...]



My Blueberry Nights Poster

January 25th, 2008 at 8:21 pm » Comments (1)

I ended up never writing about the first My Blueberry Nights poster. I can’t quite remember why. I certainly meant too. Anyway, the film, which was first shown last years at Cannes, is finally going to open on the U.K. in February, and that means we get a nice Quad poster for it. It maintains [...]



Trajan is the Movie Font

I’ve been meaning to post this video for a while now. Watch it and see if you can stop yourself from muttering “Trajan again” under your breath all the time. Found via the great Burbanked.



Since We Are Talking About Horror …

January 23rd, 2008 at 10:51 pm » Comments (1)

Ok, so here are a couple of horror movie posters that I’m not too fond of. First, the poster for the remake of Prom Night, which goes for the classic “girl in distress close-up.” Now, you can do some interesting posters with that basic concept, but this is not one of them. For starters, by [...]



The Horrors of 2007

January 23rd, 2008 at 11:15 am » Comments (6)

Although there were a fair number of horror movies released during 2007, there was a definite lack of creative and economic success. Still, there were a few posters worth remembering. Back to the Grindhouse Looming large over all other 07 horror movies was Grindhouse, the Tarantino/Rodriguez collaboration that became a favorite topic of Internet conversation. [...]
