Sherlock Holmes Poster

March 31st, 2009 at 7:52 pm » Comments (8)

This photo (I’ll update with a better picture when it comes out) of the teaser poster for Sherlock Holmes has me quite surprised. This is not how I expected Sherlock to look. There is a certain edge, a certain darkness I don’t generally imagine the character having. Then again maybe I just didn’t read the [...]



Three Times Star Trek

March 26th, 2009 at 7:51 pm » Comments (0)

The three international posters released for Star Trek today are very different from each other. First we have this one: Basically the approach here was to use the big heads floating over landscape design and to put in the landscape two of the most striking images found in the trailer: Kirk on a bike and [...]



Astro Boy Emerges

Ah, Astro Boy, the robot with a heart of … well, I have no idea what the hell that is made of. But the important point is that he does have a heart. And he is a robot. See, this is a very sweet story. About a robot. Ever since I started reading about and [...]

Turkish posters! And some more! And some more! And some more! (Thanks go to Kurt for the tip)



Terminator: Salvation Gets Another Poster

March 20th, 2009 at 9:07 pm » Comments (3)

One of the complaints I had about the last batch of Terminator posters was that they didn’t use the series iconography well enough. In that point this poster is a big leap forward. The T skull as it exists in this poster is easyly recognizable in a way nothing on the other posters was. It [...]



Life is Hard for Everyone

Poor Donald Faison, not only has Mos Def suddenly become a bigger star than him, the guy also stole his arms! Tough luck, but are you going to do, right Donald? (Via Black Voices and IMPAwards)



Laid to Rest Poster

March 18th, 2009 at 10:41 pm » Comments (7)

Screaming women are a staple of horror posters. I guess there is nothing that conveys fear and helpless terror as well as a poor defenseless lady with an open mouth and closed eyes. Or so the marketers think. It’s really not something that I particularly appreciate, but I’ve learned to tolerate it. However this one [...]



Terminator and Some Regular Posters

March 17th, 2009 at 10:54 pm » Comments (1)

I liked the previous posters for Terminator: Salvation, including the very cool motion poster. These new character posters are a bit of a disappointment tough. Very usual action posters, with the characters looking busy and loads of stuff flying around, which mostly serves to muddle the image. The new posters don’t really explore in any [...]



My Life in Ruins Poster

March 11th, 2009 at 10:06 am » Comments (6)

Andre James from Row Three alerted me to this poster for My Life in Ruins and to the visual resemblance it has with this poster we saw not long ago for Mamma Mia! Initially I thought that maybe the poster for My Life in Ruins was somehow referencing or parodying the Mamma Mia! one. But [...]



I Smell a Crossover

March 10th, 2009 at 9:00 pm » Comments (2)

One is a venerable bad boy still struggling with the acceptance he has received from the establishment. The other is a washed up TV star trying to matter again. They both like to stand alone in the posters for their films looking towards some place outside the image. Don’t miss their meeting in .. Public [...]
