G.I. Dull

May 28th, 2009 at 10:23 pm » Comments (1)

I complained that in the last batch of posters the characters in G.I. Joe all looked the same. Well, in this poster a much better job is done of distinguishing the bad guys from the good guys. The good guys are surrounded by blue flames and background. The bad guys are surrounded by red flames [...]



The Hangover has Many Posters

Let this be a lesson to all the kids out there: sure, that face tattoo looks narly now. But once you grow older, pudgier and much less threatening it will look very very silly. It will probably help the poster for that film you have a small part in stand out more though. In general [...]

Feels Like Christmas

May 19th, 2009 at 9:15 pm » Comments (6)

This poster for A Christmas Carol hits just the perfect balance between seeming like a hundred posters you have seen before and still having enough fresh elements to appear modern. Which is exactly as it should be. Obviously you can’t have a poster that makes the film seem like something straight from the 80′s. And [...]



When Close-Ups Attack

Johnny Depp is a very charming fellow with a very expressive face which is normally endlessly entertaining to watch. And yet in this posters I don’t quite get the intriguing sense of danger that was quite clearly emanating from his character in the poster below. Sure, part of that can be attributed to a more [...]



Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Poster

A quick perusal of my posts about the first Transformers informs me the I actually liked its posters much less than I remembered. But there were at least a couple of very good ones. And I was very interested in seeing each and every one of the posters, and was happy to analyze them to [...]



Important Animation Posters

First up, Up. Not much new in the poster to look at, but doesn’t the title seem much more chirpy and joyful in french? Second , Ponyo, the American version, which is somewhat cleaner and more focused than some others (not ALWAYS a good thing, I should add). And more importantly, reminds me that the [...]



Pandorum Explained

May 7th, 2009 at 9:50 pm » Comments (1)

So taking this poster and the last poster in consideration I can say that Pandorum is about having various tubes inserted all over your body. It’s nice when the posters clearly tells you what to expect from a movie. Another plus: very consistent visual identity. Pandorum is THE tubes in body movie. (Via IMPAwards)



Dinosaurs!!!

May 5th, 2009 at 9:32 pm » Comments (2)

Ice Age is here again, and it brings us … dinosaurs. And mammoths that float around using on giant slabs of ice. This a very weird Ice Age indeed. When you have a sequel to a popular film the desire to do a poster that looks kind of similar to a previous poster but WITH [...]
