The Semi-Weekly Round-Up: Way Too Many Posters Get Released on Fridays Edition

May 16th, 2008 at 10:50 pm » Comments (2)

The Rocker I think I can outsource my thought on this one. Peter notices the resemblance between this and the posters for 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up. Meanwhile, Eric asks the question that is on my mind. The Dark Knight Yes, it’s yet another poster for The Dark Knight. I have to admit, even I [...]



Look, Pandas!

May 15th, 2008 at 11:28 pm » Comments (0)

This poster isn’t very different from the very first teaser for Kung Fu Panda. It just adds the character of the master and places a mean looking tiger in the background. And that is actually quite fine. I think they hit pretty much all the points they needed to hit with the first poster, so [...]



Spicing Up the Poster: Meet Dave

May 14th, 2008 at 12:05 am » Comments (1)

The second poster for Meet Dave keeps the same theme of people inhabiting robo-murphy, and the same wide and stupid grin. But now we get to see more of Murphy’s body and we have some nice trees in the background. Honestly, it does make the poster easier on the eyes. Not having so much of [...]



City of Ember Poster

May 14th, 2008 at 12:03 am » Comments (2)

I find the experience of seeing a poster for a film I know nothing about very interesting. It doesn’t happen very often, which is too bad, because it’s nice to see a poster like someone who is not as aware of movie news might see it. It also allows me to experience the poster purely [...]



France Gets Me Best

Let’s get this out of the way first. Yes, it’s purple. A very, very bright purple. Surely that is not for everybody. And yet I think it’s probably the best poster I have seen for Sex and the City. It’s essentially a re-edition of the first teaser poster, but with all the women and not [...]



Bangkok Dangerous Poster

May 8th, 2008 at 11:18 pm » Comments (2)

Now this is what I’m talking about. This poster sets Bangkok Dangerous as a kick ass action film in a way we have rarely seen. I mean look at Cage, reaching for the gun he keeps on his shoulder with one hand and using his magic right hand to reach through his jacket. Or something. [...]



Taiwanese Juno Poster

May 8th, 2008 at 11:15 pm » Comments (3)

What kills me about this poster is the combination of the green and yellow arrows pointing towards Juno with some sort of question. Now, I have no idea of what the question actually is, but can’t you just imagine some over excited announcer pointing and saying “She has a baby, in her belly!?” I do [...]



Star Wars: The Clone Wars

May 8th, 2008 at 12:16 am » Comments (0)

It’s just odd to think that there is a Star Wars movie coming to theaters this year. Star Wars movies are supposed to be huge deals. Events that everyone talks about and discusses for ages. They are not supposed to be some weird hybrid TV show/movie/marketing ploy thing And Star Wars posters? They are supposed [...]



Polish X-Files Poster

May 7th, 2008 at 11:48 pm » Comments (1)

And yet another poster with a weird looking head. Seems there are a lot of those this days. As for the rest of the poster, I think like the spirit of it. It seems like it tries to move on from relying solely on brand recognition and tries to turn X-Files 2 into something that [...]



Spicing Up the Poster: The Wackness

May 7th, 2008 at 12:31 am » Comments (0)

(click for larger versions) I almost wrote a post about the first poster for The Wackness, but ended up deciding against it. My feeling was that there were some interesting things about it, but in the end the poster setting was just a little too dull in way that seemed contradictory with the colorful energy [...]
