I Am legend Posters: Domestic Vs. Spanish

March 6th, 2008 at 10:25 am » Comments (3)

(click on the posters for larger images) It’s not a huge difference but it’s an interesting one. The Spanish poster for I Am Legend has a very similar design to the main domestic poster, but instead of having Will Smith and the dog walking with the destroyed Brooklyn Bridge on the background we have them [...]



Shutter Posters

March 5th, 2008 at 12:12 pm » Comments (2)

The first poster for Shutter, which you can see above, got some nice notices from some parts. I myself find the idea behind the poster appealing, and the final image does give out a certain creepy vibe. It also connects perfectly with the film’s story, which involves ghostly images appearing in common photographs. And yet, [...]



Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis Poster

March 4th, 2008 at 4:20 pm » Comments (6)

You probably can’t tell from the poster above, but “Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis” (Welcome to the Land of Ch’tis) just had a record breaking opening in it’s native France, and was apparently the top film at the international box-office this weekend. From what I can grasp the success of Bienvenue seems to be mostly attributable [...]



Compare and Contrast: My Own Private Idaho and Paranoid Park

March 4th, 2008 at 9:56 am » Comments (2)

My Own Private Idaho and Paranoid Park are separated by 16 years, but are united by a common director, Gus Van Sant, a very similar posters. Ok, perhaps very similar is pushing it, but I still find it amusing that both use the device of slicing an image in several strips and then putting these [...]

If you read our 10 Posters From Actual Grindhouse Films post you’ll probably remember the infamous double feature of “I Drink Your Blood/ I Eat Your Skin”, and it’s gruesome poster. Well, since everything old is being remade, and inspired by the release of Grindhouse, the makers of “I Drink Your Blood/ I Eat Your [...]



No Country For Old Men – International Vs. Domestic Posters

March 3rd, 2008 at 10:27 am » Comments (6)

I have already talked about the main poster for No Country a couple of times. It’s nice, but I don’t think it captures the beauty or intensity of the film. But that is the domestic poster, perhaps the international posters are different? Well, as it turns out most countries used the domestic poster with the [...]



New Line is no More – But the Posters Remain

March 2nd, 2008 at 10:00 pm » Comments (2)

As you might have heard, New Line has ceased to exist as an even somewhat stand alone entity. This basically ends a history that spawns 40 years, 25 of which saw active production of movies. So, this strikes me as being as good a moment as any to recall some of the more memorable posters [...]

Sukiyaki Western Django Poster

These posters for the Japanese genre bender Sukiyaki Western Django are similar to the poster for OneChanbara: They both are for Japanese movies and they both fail to show a bikini clad cowgirl using a samurai sword to slash zombies. Oh, why must you mock me this way Japan? I’m starting to think I’ll never get my cowgirl slashing zombies poster.[...]
