New The Spirit Teaser Poster

April 18th, 2008 at 10:50 pm » Comments (4)

Ok, now this is a teaser poster. As you might recall I was a little surprised with the first few Spirit posters because they were visually underwhelming and I was expecting something stunning, like the kind of thing we got from 300 and Sin City. Not that the posters were bad exactly, but they did [...]



More Posters from the Alamo Drafthouse

April 16th, 2008 at 12:21 pm » Comments (2)

A while back I mentioned the work of artist Tyler Stout, who often does movie posters for the Alamo Drafthouse for their especial screenings and festivals. But, as Swarez reminds us over at twitch, Stout isn’t the only one doing new posters for the Drafthouse. In fact they use an array of interesting artists to [...]



Beverly Hills Chihuahua Poster

April 15th, 2008 at 8:13 pm » Comments (2)

I find it hard to believe that Beverly Hills Chihuahua isn’t going to be crap. I mean, look at the plot outline: “While on vacation in Mexico, Chloe, a ritzy Beverly Hills chihuahua, finds herself lost and in need of assistance in order to get back home.” And even more damning is the fact that [...]



The Incredible Hulk Poster

April 14th, 2008 at 10:57 pm » Comments (8)

And just because I said nothing new was happening, IGN brings us a poster for The Hulk. Over at Slashfilm Hunter Stephenson says that he likes the poster but thinks it is not good enough considering that this is the second go around for The Hulk. I think I’m less positive about the poster than [...]



The Spider Movie Poster

April 14th, 2008 at 10:14 pm » Comments (2)

Not that many interesting new posters coming out these days, so let me take a moment to highlight a posters for smaller film that I have been meaning to talk about for a while. Here is a pretty amusing poster for Rober Sigl’s The Spider, depicting that ages old Turkish problem, half human/half-spider monsters. Now, [...]



American Rogue Poster

April 14th, 2008 at 1:07 pm » Comments (4)

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, [...]



You Don’t Mess With The Zohan Poster

April 11th, 2008 at 7:38 pm » Comments (0)

This poster is obviously designed to show us just how much of a bad ass The Zohan really is. Sure, he is a hairdresser now, he is also wearing shorts and holding a couple of hair blowers. But is he on the ground starring up at some dude’s crotch? No, he is not. YOU are [...]



Pineapple Express Poster

April 11th, 2008 at 12:52 am » Comments (2)

So, I thought that the poster for stoner comedy Bad Batch was really funny. However, this poster for Pineapple Express, which also has quite a few stoned references and jokes, leaves me cold. But does that mean anything? Not much probably. I’m sure a lot of other people will have the opposite reaction. I myself [...]



Kim Ki-duk’s Dream Poster

April 9th, 2008 at 11:31 pm » Comments (0)

I’m highlighting this poster for two reasons. First, I have really liked director Kim Ki-duk’s films in the past and everything about his new movie seems to get me excited. Second, I really like the simple, clean and yet evocative design. Dream is one of those films with an weird but appealing premise that is [...]



Blindness Poster

April 9th, 2008 at 2:50 am » Comments (4)

Blindness’ story revolves around an epidemic of blindness that spreads quickly bringing society to a state of chaos. This first teaser poster for the movie focuses squarely on the sight loss aspect, giving little attention to the epidemic/chaos angle. We have the letters for the title arranged in a form reminiscent of an eye chart. [...]
