The People Vs. George Lucas Poster

I’m not sure whether The People Vs. George Lucas, a documentary which will supposedly allow Star War fans to speak their minds, will be a good film. It might be an interesting look at the relationship of the fans with Lucas and with the world he helped to create. It might be a boring whine fest. Or it might be something in between. But I do know that they already have a great (very) early teaser poster.[...]

Priceless Poster
(click for a larger version)

And here is a new poster for the French comedy Priceless, which is, according to the official synopsys, “a fresh re-imagining of the cinema classic, BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S.” [...]

The Rules of Attraction Poster

Kurt has a post over at RowThree talking about The Rules of Attraction which features a pic of the poster above. I had never actually seen that version of the poster before, but it’s too perfect as a Valentines Day’s poster for me not to showcase it here too.[...]

Sundance has come and gone. Some of the movies that participated in the festival will soon be coming to a theater near you. Most won’t. But we will always have the posters. In that spirit here are the posters for the films that participated in the World Dramatic Competition. ABSURDISTAN (Germany) (source) BLUE EYELIDS (PÁRPADOS [...]



Bangkok Dangerous Poster

February 12th, 2008 at 10:01 pm » Comments (6)

Here we have the poster for Bangkok Dangerous in which we see Nicolas Cage giant head towering over what one imagines is Bangkok. Our man Nic looks distraught, he obviously is carrying a lot on his shoulders and that is taking its toll. Now, let’s go back a few months. Here we have Nicolas Cage [...]



Book of Blood Poster

ShockTillYouDrop has a look at the poster for Book of Blood made for the Berlin film festival. I like the idea of it. The Books of Blood were a series of books written by Clive Baker composed of several horror short stories. The very first story in the first book is about a man that [...]



Arthur and the Vengeance of Maltazard

February 10th, 2008 at 1:56 pm » Comments (4)

I can’t say I was too interested in last year’s Arthur and the Minimoys, Luc Bessons’s foray into animation. Not that I dislike animation in general, but that one just seemed like an overly light, not very original exemplar of the genre. Add to that some very so-so reviews and I ended up staying far [...]



OneChanbara and Jack Brooks

Zombies are awesome. Cowgirl in a bikini? Also awesome. Samurai swords? Even more awesome. So a poster for a movie that combines all those things has to be almost incomprehensibly awesome, right? Wrong. As you can see above, that poster turns out to be rather dull. That image would probably make for a fine cover [...]



John Alvin: 1948 – 2008

February 7th, 2008 at 10:33 pm » Comments (1)

Via IMPAwards we get the sad news that legendary artist John Alvin has died. The image above, which ended up becoming the poster for E.T., is probably his most iconic piece of work, but he left behind tons of great movie related art. You can check some of his posters here, and more of his [...]



First Quantum of Solace Poster

February 7th, 2008 at 10:05 pm » Comments (1)

Let’s start from the premise that Casino Royale was a great movie. Now, not everybody will agree with that, as the world is filled with people with different opinions on every single thing. But this seems to be the opinion held by the majority of the people that could ever actually be interested in a [...]
