New The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian Poster


The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian Poster

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 just with that. We also have Caspian front and center once again.

What is different about this poster is that it packs a lot more in the background and around the edges, and as a whole is a lot more action oriented. Instead of Caspian with his arms crossed we have Caspian pointing his sword towards us. Instead of an army calmly marching in a corner we have a few soldiers trapped in a bridge that is being destroyed by ferocious and apparently magically controlled waves. Instead of Aslan quietly looking towards infinity we have …. well, Aslan quietly looking towards infinity. Man, nothing fazes that dude.

I like this poster for many of the same reasons that I liked the first poster. It reminds people of the first movie but also make this seem like a progression from that, especially by making it look like the action will be more intense and satisfying. And that is exactly what this film, which will already have a pretty huge built-in audience, needs. But I also feel that this poster is similar to the first to the point of making the earlier one pointless. This is not so much a different poster as it is a better version of that one.

    [...] The design lets us see that the four kids whose story it is we’re following are still here, though it’s pretty clear that they’re no longer the focus of the plot. That role is now being filled by the vaguely Euro-trash-esque titular Prince. But Aslan is still there overseeing things and overall the poster presents simply a new entry point into a world that the audience is already familiar with. [via MPA] [...]

    It’s just kinda “meh” to me. I think it’s because I love the first one’s poster to an idiotically high level.

    .) There is noticeably a bundle to know about this. I assume you made certain nice points in features also.
