Wall-E Does Funny

June 13th, 2008 at 12:23 am » Comments (0)

Well, the Russians got a bunch of posters depicting Wall-E’s romantic side. Meanwhile we get another bunch of posters, this time showing Wall-E’s physical comedy chops. Is there anything the guy can’t do? The comparison between the two sets of posters is enough to make the campaign look schizophrenic, but I can’t really complain because [...]



The Waning Power of Robert DeNiro’s Mug

June 11th, 2008 at 11:55 pm » Comments (1)

There was a point in time when seeing Robert DeNiro’s face on a poster meant something. The film might not be good but there would at least be some sparks. And the face itself would send thrills through your spine. Looking at the above poster I’m mostly reminded of how long ago that was. There [...]



The 100 Best Posters Ever … According to Some Guy

June 10th, 2008 at 11:57 pm » Comments (3)

Yes, I know these things are terribly subjective. And I’m sure you’ll find more than a couple of choices that will make your eyes roll, which will probably be completely different from the choices that made my eyes roll. But Glenn ( aka KamikazeKamel) has put a lot of thought and effort into his list [...]



It’s Happening in Mexico

June 9th, 2008 at 11:39 pm » Comments (6)

I’m starting to think that the people behind the marketing for The Happening want me to think about I Am Legend. As you might remember I Am Legend had several posters depicting cities around the world destroyed by the implacable virus. Pretty nice posters if you ask me. Well, know we have three posters for [...]



Disaster Poster

June 9th, 2008 at 11:36 pm » Comments (3)

I really shouldn’t have said anything nice about the last poster for Disaster Movie, should I? Obviously I was just begging them to respond with a completely uninspired and unfunny parody. Oh well, at least it’s not a bunch of people dressed in lame outfits sitting in a movie theater. Yet.



More Eva in The Spirit

June 9th, 2008 at 11:34 pm » Comments (2)

Considering that The Spirit’s cast includes such names as Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson it’s a bit surprising that Eva Mendes is getting her second character poster. Meanwhile, the others have none. Then again maybe that’s the idea. Save the main character posters for some date closer to the actual opening of the film, [...]



Red Roses and Petrol Poster

June 6th, 2008 at 11:45 pm » Comments (3)

What bothers me about this poster isn’t so much that it’s bad, because it’s bad in a very harmless dull way. What bothers me is that it is a waste of a wonderfully visual title. Red Rose and Petrol. Just hearing it isn’t your mind assaulted by visions of deep sensual red against overpowering pitch [...]



Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa Poster

June 4th, 2008 at 11:34 pm » Comments (0)

This poster fills me with questions. Like, are they really making a sequel to Madagascar? Did anybody like that enough for a sequel to be warranted? Hasn’t Pixar taught us that you don’t need to make a sequel for every middle of the road animation hit you have? Many questions also abound about the poster. [...]



The Unbearable Adorableness of Wall-E

June 3rd, 2008 at 10:51 pm » Comments (0)

These new Russian posters for Wall-E sure up the cuteness factor remarkably. Now, my man Wall-E was always one adorable fellow, but in the beginning there was a certain edge to him. After all, he was all alone in a planet and that kind of thing can make even the sweetest people snap? But now [...]



Disaster Movie Poster

June 3rd, 2008 at 12:20 am » Comments (2)

What are the chances that Disaster Movie will be better the its predecessors such as Meet the Spartans, Date Movie and Epic Movie? I’m guessing very low, based on the fact that it comes from the exact same people. But at least the poster for it is better. The posters for the other something-something movies [...]
