Russian Speed Racer Poster

Speed Racer Russian Poster

CTAPT! That’s a pretty long way to say Go. Of course, I have no idea how it’s pronounced so maybe it’s really brief when people actually speak it.

As for the poster, it’s not as good as most of the Speed Racer poster, but it’s still kind of cool in the way it embraces the wackiness of the visuals and the action and creates a surreal image out of it.

The Promotion

The Promotion Poster

Hey look, it’s two actors who are great supporting players but don’t generally quite cut it as leading men! Also, there is the title being incorporated into the image in a way that makes it seem like the actors are holding it. Which, much like the rest of the poster, is sort of funny. I guess.

Familiar Strangers

So obviously trying to position the movie as a quirky family comedy (It’s like Little Miss Sunshine! And Juno!). And yet, I still find it sort of adorable. Interesting wallpaper too.

Final You Don’t mess With the Zohan Poster

You Don’t Mess with the Zohan Poster

Once again a poster that makes us notice Sandler’s crocth. Less so than the last one, but still way too much.

High School Musical 3

If I hadn’t been told that this was going to play in theaters I would have though that this was a very nice TV poster.

The idea of making the third movie in this series a theatrical experience befuddles me. But then again the success of HSM was already pretty shocking to me, so I guess I just don’t get it.

The Last Mistress

I don’t know why exactly, but I find myself really liking this poster. Feels very intriguing somehow.

What Happens in Vegas

What Happens in Vegas Poster

This poster actually has a nice, clear image that makes WHiV look like it might be a sweet romantic comedy involving gambling. But it fails to have the faces of Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz splashed all over it, which probably means we won’t be seeing much of it around. Too bad.

    Re: Speed Racer: My virtually non-existent knowledge of Cyrillic suggests that “CTAPT” in Russian is pronounced more or less like “START” in English. So it doesn’t take that long to say it :-)

    Of all these, I like the one for The Promotion the best, though I wish they could have done a better job of making it look like the stars were actually holding the title, and not like it was an afterthought to photoshop it in there. It’s simple, but tells you all you need to know about the movie.
