John Carter (In Mars!) Poster

February 23rd, 2012 at 3:47 am » Comments (3)

I think this is my favorite John Carter poster so far. Such lovely, epic seeming scenery. And a great pulp book cover style. I’m still not convinced I will like the film, but this poster points at what I want it to be: pulp, epic, bizarre, otherworldly fun. Which is probably not what everybody wants. [...]

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

It’s Tom Cruise… In a hoodie! Edgy! Hip! Kinda wrong seeming for his age! Honestly, I’m not really getting what the idea was here with the wardrobe choice. Is Tom a wizard and/or a rapper in the new M:I movie? Because that would be interesting. (Via)

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 [...]

Haywire Comic Con Poster

July 21st, 2011 at 1:06 pm » Comments (1)

Comic Con posters are always a pretty good bet. Freed from the need of appealing to a wide audience they tend to go for something stylish and unusual. Also, they generally don’t showcase the actors or shots from the movie, which cuts down on the bad photoshop. Add to that a Soderbergh movie and the [...]

First The Hunger Games Poster

[Motion poster placed below the fold, because it's noisy. The above is the very similar, but motionless teaser poster] According to the press release this poster “really gives you a very FIRST glimpse at how the adaptation of the Suzanne Collin’s bestseller will be brought to life on the big screen!”. Well, that is one [...]

Goodbye, Harry Potter Character Posters

July 13th, 2011 at 11:46 am » Comments (2)

It was a tradition. Every year, they would appear: poster after poster with pretty much the same background (dark bluish background, because sinister things were going on) but with a different character in each of them. Posters with the main characters, posters with the main villains, posters with whichever secondary character was slightly more prominent [...]

No Kidding Sherlock

October 27th, 2009 at 8:51 pm » Comments (10)

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. Not earth shattering stuff, but distinctive enough to to be remembered and essentially ok for a movie which will be sold as “Robert Downey Jr. IS Sherlock [...]

Second Daybreakers Poster

This is not exactly the poster one would expect from a vampire movie. Especially not after the first, much more genre standard, poster. But it does make sense once you take into account that the film takes place in the near future and that an important plot point is that vampires are now harvesting humans [...]

New Moon Posters

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. [...]

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 [...]
