American Rogue Poster

in: Horror

Rogue Poster (Big)

This American Rogue poster isn’t exactly subtle, is it? We have a big ass alligator, jaws wide open, trying to eat a bunch of ragged letters. Which is meant to convey that the movie will have a giant ass alligator which will try to eat a bunch of people. No actors in the poster because, honestly, who cares? They are just the food. It’s all about the beast.

This poster strikes me as being narrowly targeted at a core of horror lovers. The total focus on the monster and the amount of it that is shown doesn’t seem compatible with trying to go for a broad sell. Compare that with the previous Rogue poster, which took it’s inspiration from Jaws and made the movie look a lot more like the kind of suspenseful horror that can bring in nice crowds.

I guess they just didn’t think Rogue would be able to get big numbers in America, and decided to focus just on the real horror fans. It’s also possible that this is not the main poster they will be using and that it was created just to get the horror fans excited. But my money is on the first option.

    Well the movie is getting a bare limited release in America so I think this poster is being used to get the hardcore horror fans in who are expected “Wolf Creek 2″, but with a crocodile who would see it whether it was in limited release or wide release. Really the movie is nothing of the sort and the first Australian poster was a better representation.

    This poster annoys me though because the croc in it doesn’t even look like the croc in the movie somehow. Maybe I’m forgetting, but I don’t think it looked like that.

    I’ve said that least 4604776 times. The problem this like that is they are just too compilcated for the average bird, if you know what I mean

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
