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 serves as a nice reminder that this movie is probably going to have lots of travel porn.
Of course the dark mood of the poster and the seemly supernatural elements don’t really seem to fit with what I imagine the tone and story of the movie will be like. I haven’t actually read the book, so perhaps it would seem more fitting if I had, but I was expecting something a little lighter and more grounded.
Then again I’m expecting this movie too suck, so going against my expectations is probably a good thing.
This poster could have worked very well for a classy horror movie. On the other hand, this poster for House couldn’t, which is a shame because this one actually is a horror movie.
Forbidden and dangerous doors are a recurring theme/image and it can be really effective if well handled. But this is more boring than scary.
