Diary of the Dead Poster

January 22nd, 2008 at 11:03 pm » Comments (3)

Diary of the Dead is the newest zombie film from the genre’s master George Romero. One big difference between this film and Romero’s previous efforts is the use of handheld cameras operated by the character’s to tell the story, a style similar to the one used in Blair Witch and, more recently, in Cloverfield. The [...]



New The Midnight Meat Train Poster

January 22nd, 2008 at 9:06 pm » Comments (0)

(click for a very large version) I really liked the very creepy first poster for Midnight Meat Train, but I guess they thought that having a bunch of bloody hooks in a subway train was too gory. Or perhaps too literal an interpretation of the title (although I must remind people that no actual meat [...]



The Life Before Her Eyes Poster

January 22nd, 2008 at 6:00 pm » Comments (7)

Update2: New poster is here. Update: I was asked to take down this poster. I’m not sure what happened. Perhaps they sent out the wrong version? Perhaps it shouldn’t have been released yet? Anyway, this is a rare enough occurrence that I’m happy to oblige the marketing team. I’ll update as soon as a new [...]



Sex and the City Movie Poster

January 21st, 2008 at 9:50 am » Comments (1)

One of the things that you have to do whenever you have a film that is based on a TV series is to convince people that this is more than simply an extra long episode and that the movie really is worth the trip to the theater. And I think that’s a bit of what [...]



What Were the Best Movie Posters From 2007?

January 18th, 2008 at 10:23 am » Comments (0)

Well, it depends on who you ask. Posterwire, for example, didn’t really like this year’s selection, but ended up settling on this poster for The Savages as the best of the year. In his (her?) words: What we do like about the Chris Ware movie poster illustration for The Savages is that it is different [...]



Official 80th Oscars Poster

January 17th, 2008 at 10:04 pm » Comments (1)

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has released the official poster for this year’s Oscars, which will be the 80th in the award show’s history. The design was apparently originally conceived by the amazing Drew Struzan (you remember Drew Struzan, right?), but that design was actually turned into the final product we see [...]



Mamma Mia Movie Poster

January 17th, 2008 at 8:58 pm » Comments (3)

The first thing I noticed when I saw this poster was the scenery. The beautiful blue ocean on the back, the architecture, the flowers. The scenery was also one of the things that most caught my attention when watching the trailer. I guess I just expected a musical using ABBA’s songs to take place somewhere [...]



International 10,000 BC Posters

January 16th, 2008 at 10:11 pm » Comments (0)

These new posters for 10,000 BC follow the basic formula of showing primitive men’s struggle against giant animals that we saw in the previous posters, but they do a much worse job of turning these struggles into iconic images. Outside from the poster which showcases predominantly the guy that I imagine is our fearless hero, [...]



The Bank Job Movie Poster

January 15th, 2008 at 11:08 pm » Comments (3)

(click for a large version) This poster for The Bank Job really goes for an old fashioned 70′s look. But unlike some recent posters, like the ones for Grindhouse, which took some conventions from older posters but added a definitely modern twist, this one really seems to be interested in looking authentic. It even has [...]



The Air I Breath Poster

January 14th, 2008 at 6:28 pm » Comments (5)

There are a few things about this poster that I like. It shows that this is an ensemble piece without filling the whole image with the actors. It conveys that this is a crime related story through the silhouette of the gun. And the combination of the sky and the butterfly vaguely points to the [...]
