It Goes Around, It Comes Around

Ok, am I going crazy? Are we suddenly back in the 80′s? I mean, a poster for a 3D horror movie featuring the killer’s weapon bursting through the screen? Really? Sure, the production values are now much better. But the cheese is still equally (or even more) strong. Not that I’m not tickled by it, [...]

In Honor Of Yet Another Good Opening

October 27th, 2008 at 9:23 pm » Comments (1)

So, SAW V (five!) took about $30 million dollars in its opening weekend. I’m sure this series is running out of steam, but I’m, as of right now, retiring from the business of predicting that the SAW marketing has lost its power. I wonder what the poster for SAW 33 will be like. I mean, [...]

Up Poster

I’m not sure who should get credit for it, but the posters for Pixar’s films have been almost always excellent. The poster campaign for Wall-E was one of my favorites of this year so far, and from the look of things UP will be one of my favorites next year. What I love about this [...]

W. Poster Auction/Contest

If loved the W. posters and want to get an autographed version of them you can join this charitable auction. If, on the other hand, you are a cheap bastard you can just enter this contest over at The Moving Picture.

The Day Earth Stood Still Starring … Tom Cruise?

Ok, maybe he doesn’t look exactly like Cruise, but Keanu is looking even less like himself in this poster, which makes this a weird design. A poster for a big effects blockbuster that doesn’t really showcase the effects and that makes the star it’s putting front and center hard to recognize. The poster also reminds [...]

Separated at Birth: Inkheart and Bedtime Stories

(click on the images to make them larger) Two films about fantastic stories that come to life? Oh, it’s on. Although since one film has Adam Sandler and the backing of Disney and the other has Brendan Fraser I’m guessing it won’t be much of a fight. I do think the design in general and [...]

Compare and Contrast: American and French Posters For Max Payne

October 13th, 2008 at 10:26 pm » Comments (7)

I guess the french thought the whole ray of lights/angel was just too much. A snowy night on the other hand gave the image of our kneeled hero just the right amount of over the top melodrama. (Via TheMovingPicture and IMPAwards)

Punisher: War Zone Lenticular Poster

October 10th, 2008 at 10:53 pm » Comments (1)

Lenticular posters are those 3D/moving things you sometimes see on you local cineplex. As you can imagine it’s not very easy to tell exactly the effect one of those will have in real life from a picture on the internet. For example, I quite liked this poster when I first saw it, but I was [...]

Still Shiny

Kurt from RowThree was nice enough to point me over to this poster made by artist Jeff Kleinsmith for a special Alamo Drafthouse screening. If you are quick you can also buy it from MondoTees. Normal posters have to sell to you a movie you have never seen, often without showing too much so as [...]

Authenticity is Overrated

October 7th, 2008 at 9:58 pm » Comments (2)

This poster might very well not be an official poster, but is that reason enought not to post it? I say no. A half angel, half demon statue might be an overly literal visual representation of a movie called Angels & Demons, but you know what? I don’t really care. It works. And the background [...]
