The Artist Poster

August 24th, 2011 at 10:55 am » Comments (2)

So, for context, ‘The Artist’ is a movie about a silent star struggling with the advent of sound, that itself is a black and white silent movie. It was apparently quite the hit in Cannes and will be released in the U.S. in November. The poster, which is mostly black and white (and silent!) is [...]



Martha Marcy May Marlene Poster

This design is, in general terms, fine. Minimalistic and clean. But I would like to raise two objections: 1) I really hate the proliferation of QR codes in posters. I knows, this is a highly personal preference, and it probably marks me as some sort of neo-luddite, out-of-touch, old person, but there it is. 2) [...]



The Lady Poster

So Luc Besson is making a movie, called The Lady, about Burmese pro-democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi. A couple of years ago, artist Shepard Fairey made a poster celebrating the real Aung San Suu Kyi, which went on to become somewhat famous. So now the guys behind the film asked him to come up [...]



American Reunion

I’m pretty sure American Reunion is a bad idea, likely to lead to a bad movie. I mean, considering that this series has already released a bunch of straight to video films, how can I believe that this is anything but a somewhat desperate attempt from a bunch of people to revive more successful days? [...]



Safe Poster

Considering this together with the poster for Contagion that was released a while ago we can already see the cool new trend: Posters with a weathered look that are mostly taken by the title, displayed vertically. Hott. Honestly, I like both posters, probably because I’m just a sucker for a weathered, beaten down look (remember [...]



Winnie the Pooh Poster

It’s been a while since this was realeased, but I just felt like I had to mention that this is a great poster. In fact, the whole campaign was very well done, in a classic way that you don’t get see often anymore. (Via)



5 Classics, New Clothes

August 3rd, 2011 at 11:27 am » Comments (2)

Because seeing other artist’s vision of what a poster for a classic films could be is always fun, here are five posters for Sci-Fi Classics, as created by Dean Walton. One of the most interesting things about this batch, at least for me, is that most of the films depicted also had great posters back [...]
