Invictus Poster

Yes it is a tired design, one we have seen many times. But so are most poster designs this days. This has the merit of being a particularly good execution of a well known design. Harmonious, good balance of colors and the choice of the images that are used of the main characters strikes me [...]



No Kidding Sherlock

The Sherlock Holmes posters so far have been pretty consistent visually, always sporting some fog, and blue tinge (a little more pronounced here) and backgrounds that scream period.

This is not exactly the poster one would expect from a vampire movie. Especially not after the first, much more genre standard, poster.

Michael Moore last few movie’s have had some striking, funny and sometimes polemic posters. They always caught your attention and often presented a clever visual linked to the theme of the movie. All of that only made me more disappointed at this latest one. It tries to be funny, but the joke is terminally lame. [...]



Beautiful Scenery

I don’t have a lot to say about this poster for Antichrist, made especially for Fantastic Fest. But I like the style and the dark undertones behind the superficially innocent image, so it seems worth posting. (Via RowThree and MondoTees)
