Yep, Another SAW Poster

August 26th, 2009 at 11:58 am » Comments (2)

I think this just might be the best SAW poster since the body-parts-as-numbers heyday, which ended with the third outing. For a while now the gore content in these posters has been insufficient to make an unique image, and they seemed to be searching for something else, some other element to replace it with. The [...]



Law Abiding Faces

No, no, no, no, no, no. This is exactly the wrong direction! I said MORE text over their faces, not less! Consider me displeased.



Law Abiding Citzen Posters

Well, I’m myself think Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler are a little overexposed these days. Apparently the designer here thought the same and decided to cover as much of their faces as he could with the title, and the tagline. Which is all fine and good, but the idea could be taken further. Put some [...]



A Serious Man Poster

August 11th, 2009 at 10:02 pm » Comments (3)

A Serious Man strikes me as a low key movie with low key humor. And now it has a low key poster. It all fits. And I’m interested. But I wonder if the approach here isn’t too subdued. The trailer does more to make the material pop out without necessarily making it seem like a [...]



SAW VI Drives

The SAW nurses were always sexy, but in a very doll, almost fake way. An aspect which the latest poster apparently decided to embrace completely. These blood drive posters have that warm feeling of tradition by now, but they are probably irrelevant to the marketing. Hopefully they actually do some good by getting people to [...]



Pandorum Reveals More!

August 5th, 2009 at 9:45 pm » Comments (2)

Fear what happens next. Well, they say we fear what we don’t know, and based on the posters released so far I really have no idea what happens next. Or what is happening now. I am saddened to see that Pandorum is decisively walking away from the brand of “movie about tubes going in and [...]



The Informant Poster

August 3rd, 2009 at 9:16 pm » Comments (1)

What I love about this poster is how the combination of the type and the way that the title is broken into several lines allows me to think of a 50′s style monster movie about the terrible inform-ant. Much more dangerous than your regular giant ant. Beyond that this is the second poster for the [...]
