New Moon Posters

September 30th, 2009 at 9:26 pm » Comments (2)

So, here we have a bunch of poster for the new Twilight movie. First, Werewolves! Now, Vampires! And, to finish off, we have … hmmm, more Vampires? With a human or two thrown in there? I think? Ok, ok, I don’t actually know anything about the series, so I’m not sure what I’m talking about. [...]



The Crazies Poster

I think the contrast between the welcoming sign and the dire warning scribbled in red would be more effective if we could actually read the original text. As it is this is just a scary sign. The town in the background does look quite placid, but it’s almost invisible when paired with the strong and [...]



So It Is Christmas

I’m not sure if we need a poster of Scrooge flying around in the city, but if we do this one strikes as the better version. Not quite as over the top and zany looking as the last one. Less weird flying objects. (Via IMPAwards)



SAW VI

September 22nd, 2009 at 9:42 pm » Comments (8)

I thought the days seeing the SAW posters find some clever way to work the film’s number into the poster image where over. I guess not. Honestly, the tradition feels stale. And the way they created the number is clever, but also feels too contrived. This poster looks lot like the posters we used to [...]

What could I add that I haven’t said before? Nothing, I guess. But I can’t not post these character posters. That would be a treason of my very palpable excitement at these creatures and at the way they are being presented to us. (Via IMPAwards)



Law Abiding Citizen Gets Another Poster

September 17th, 2009 at 9:31 pm » Comments (7)

The Law Abiding Citizen poster campaign has seen several iterations of the same concept: Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx’s heads float around some stylish design that tries to make the poster energetic and hip. The design changes but the same problem remains: the posters tell us nothing about the movie or about the relation of [...]



A Less Scary Carol

September 16th, 2009 at 10:14 pm » Comments (4)

The first few posters for a Christmas Carol were almost completely occupied by Scrooge, as recreated through technology and with the helping face of Jim Carrey. They were also surprisingly dark and mysterious. Some of them really surprisingly dark and mysterious. Well, the latest (and supposedly final) posters takes care of THAT. Now we have [...]



More 2012

The giant waves seem a little underwhelming in this image. If you are not paying close attention you might confuse them with the mountains they are engulfing. But this problem aside I actually quite like the idea of the poster, and of the related scene we can see in the trailer. The basic formula for [...]



Where The Wild Things Are Poster

This is not my favorite image from Wild Things. Not by far. But I still can’t help but to appreciate the mesmerizing dream like tone that all the posters (and the trailer) for this movie have had. Endless fascinating, even in the lesser incarnations, like the one above. (Via IMPAwards)



A Little More SAW

September 4th, 2009 at 10:06 pm » Comments (0)

This is almost the same image as the last frame of the SAW motion poster, only with more details. Which, quite frankly, doesn’t add much. Might even detract from the clean sharpness of the other image. Not exactly a home run. It also strikes me that this latest SAW film has lacked any distinctive design [...]
