First Death Race Poster

June 26th, 2008 at 10:18 pm » Comments (1)

You pretty much can tell that Death Race won’t be a good movie just by taking into account the fact that it’s directed by Paul “The Bad One” Anderson. But the movie does have a surprisingly good cast and a premise that is goofy, but entertaining. So you’d think they would manage to come with [...]



All the Boys Love Funny Games

June 25th, 2008 at 11:27 pm » Comments (1)

This one is interesting to me. The similarities are quite obvious, and have been pointed out elsewhere. Perhaps the fact the the Funny Games poster was one of the most striking posters of late makes things more obvious, but still. Then again, the differences are quite huge. And among them is the much calmer expression, [...]



The Semi-Weekly Round Up: Not White Enough Edition

Transsiberian I really wish they had done more with the whiteness of the ambient. But I guess this isn’t too bad. Mutant Chronicles It’s always funny to find a new poster for a movie you wrote about a year ago. Apparently they used all that time to come up with a much worse poster design. [...]



Tyrannosaurus Rex Poster

It seems nobody knows for sure what the hell Tyrannosaurus Rex is about. But it is, much to my disappointment, apparently not about an actual T-Rex. I’m already less interested. Then again maybe this is a ploy? Show the crazy bikers first, get people thinking this is something kinda like The Devil’s reject, and when [...]



The Girls From The Spirit

June 23rd, 2008 at 11:46 pm » Comments (2)

Well, two more posters this week, completing the female side of The Spirit. Once again the very same style, but not quite the same effect. Both posters go straight for the seduction angle and don’t manage to create a vision of the character behind the image as intriguing as the ones the first two posters [...]



The Funny

June 20th, 2008 at 11:08 pm » Comments (1)

have in the past embarrassed myself in this very blog by allowing people a glimpse into what kind of stuff I find funny. And I love when I get a chance to do it again. Yes, it’s sort of a stupid poster. But come on. A guy driving, screaming furiously and brandishing an axe as [...]



First Burn After Reading Poster

June 19th, 2008 at 11:25 pm » Comments (1)

I keep thinking that Burn After Reading is a dead serious movie. I guess it’s the combination of still having the Coens’ latest (No Country) fresh on my mind with the strong title (burn!). But as this poster (and the trailer) makes obvious this is a a return to comedy for the brothers. Many people [...]



Because Second Guessing is Fun: The Key Art Awards

June 17th, 2008 at 11:57 pm » Comments (2)

So, the Key Art Awards winners were announced this weekend in such categories as best campaign, best action/adventure/horror trailer and a bunch of others that no one here cares about. Now, about the posters… Action/Adventure/Horror Posters Winner I was initially a little bothered that my very favorite category, horror posters, had been put together with [...]



Well, I Covered The Others, So I pretty Much Have To Cover This One

June 16th, 2008 at 10:58 pm » Comments (2)

Disaster Movie is using the same type of poster campaign that Scary Movie 4 used. First a bunch of teaser posters, each mocking one particular movie/franchise. And later on we should get a final poster cramming a lot of parodies together. Say what you want about the quality of each individual poster, this still seems [...]



The Spirit – Silken Floss

June 15th, 2008 at 9:58 pm » Comments (1)

Well, as it turns out they are not saving the big character posters for The Spirit till a date closer to the release. We now have the lovely Miss Johansson, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we soon got Mr. Jackson. Seems unusually early for this many posters to be release, but I’m not complaining. [...]
