Motherhood Poster

July 31st, 2009 at 9:51 pm » Comments (2)

A while back there seemed to be a trend of comedy posters using very bright lime greens as background, in an apparent attempt to run away from the classic solid white background. Thankfully the trend has disappeared. I hope the above poster doesn’t mark the start of a trend of comedy posters with bright yellow [...]



Well, it is a French Movie Poster

That’s, ahmmm, pretty sexy for an animated movies geared towards kids. Or maybe I’m just forgetting the juicier posters from my childhood? It is also awfully pink. Awfully, awfully pink. (Via Kinopoisk and IMPAwards)



Nightmare on Elm Street Remake Poster

I know it will suck. Know it! But the claws, the shirt and the face are all such memorable parts of my young adulthood that I can’t help but to feel some goosebumps. Which is why it pays to do lame remakes on the cheap. The young ones want to experience something that was big [...]



SAW 6 (SIX!) Teaser

July 27th, 2009 at 9:16 pm » Comments (5)

I mentioned when I was talking about the motion poster that Jigsaw has been more and more present in the posters for the latest SAW movies. This poster reminds me that this is only part of the trend. The marketing in general for the latest films strikes me as having a strong self referential bend. [...]



SAW does the Motion Poster Thing

July 22nd, 2009 at 7:34 pm » Comments (3)

I guess it’s only natural that we now have a motion poster for a SAW movie. Creative and memorable (not to mention bloody) posters have been a trademark of the series, but as the years and movies went by it became harder and harder to create yet more posters that maintained the level of quality [...]



New I Can do Bad All by Myself Poster

July 20th, 2009 at 8:49 pm » Comments (1)

And talking about weird, here is Madea as Dustin Hoffman in Straw Dogs. And this is why I’m still excited about new posters for Tyler Perry’s movies. They might not always be great (sometime they stink in fact), they might not always be original, but at least there a sense of trying to do something [...]



Prince of Persia Posters

July 20th, 2009 at 8:44 pm » Comments (6)

I think Peter nails it: these posters look like glossy magazine covers. Quite serious and somber glossy magazine covers in fact. Which strikes me as pretty odd, considering this is an epic adventure through an enchanted land. I’m sort of getting the adventure part, but the enchanted land and the epic escape me. Lots of [...]



Classic Movies, Modern Posters

July 16th, 2009 at 10:20 pm » Comments (1)

So here is the story: as part of the promotion for it’s “Summer Under the Stars” marathon of films TCM created a bunch of new, modern posters for some of the movies that will be showcased. And the posters are really good. You can see two of my favorites in this post, but be sure [...]



Because We Have Been Following the 9 Poster’s Pretty Closely

July 15th, 2009 at 9:48 pm » Comments (6)

My guess is as good as yours… *Update* As several commenters helpfully point out, this is a QR Code that apparently leads you to the movie’s trailer. A similar code can be seen on the Miss March poster. Or at least that is what they would have you to believe! (Via IMPAwards)



Zombieland Poster

July 14th, 2009 at 9:02 pm » Comments (4)

This poster for Zombieland has an abundance of land, but a clear lack of Zombies. I mean, it does a pretty good job of setting a carnival ride feel, of setting the worldwide scope of the threat and it’s a nice teaser image to boot. But it still feels more like Disasterland or Fireland. It [...]
