The Finnish would like you to know it’s X-MEN Origins: Wolverine At least this time they don’t seem to be walking. (Via IMPAwards)



Three Times Star Trek

March 26th, 2009 at 7:51 pm » Comments (0)

The three international posters released for Star Trek today are very different from each other. First we have this one: Basically the approach here was to use the big heads floating over landscape design and to put in the landscape two of the most striking images found in the trailer: Kirk on a bike and [...]



Terminator: Salvation Gets Another Poster

March 20th, 2009 at 9:07 pm » Comments (3)

One of the complaints I had about the last batch of Terminator posters was that they didn’t use the series iconography well enough. In that point this poster is a big leap forward. The T skull as it exists in this poster is easyly recognizable in a way nothing on the other posters was. It [...]



Terminator and Some Regular Posters

March 17th, 2009 at 10:54 pm » Comments (1)

I liked the previous posters for Terminator: Salvation, including the very cool motion poster. These new character posters are a bit of a disappointment tough. Very usual action posters, with the characters looking busy and loads of stuff flying around, which mostly serves to muddle the image. The new posters don’t really explore in any [...]



Inglorious Posters

So, this film is actually coming out? This year even? After all this time? I can hardly believe it. And yet, we have posters, so it must be true. And what do the posters tell us about the movie? Mostly that it will be bloody. Very bloody. Very, very bloody. So bloody in fact that [...]



The International Poster

February 12th, 2009 at 8:41 pm » Comments (5)

Can I just point out that this poster for The International has two URLs? One scribbled in the middle and another one in the bottom. That is so confusing! To which one am I supposed to go? What seems to have happened here is that they took the original poster and decided to reuse it [...]



Crank 2 Gets a Final Poster

February 11th, 2009 at 8:46 pm » Comments (6)

Well, that looks … painful, mostly. This is apparently the final poster for Crank 2, which is a little disappointing because I was hoping for a few more cool teasers. I mean, we got this one, which was fine. But not only is it based on a poster for the original, it isn’t even based [...]



Wolverine Poster

Seeing this poster you might find yourself remembering this other poster: Those claws, they sure are useful. They can represent a three if you’re advertising the third X-Men film, or they can represent a W if you are advertising the first Wolverine movie. Is there anything they can’t do? Well, I guess it would be [...]



Ending With a Whimper, Not a Bang

January 29th, 2009 at 9:12 pm » Comments (0)

The Watchmen poster campaign has mostly kept a coherent visual style and used well the fascinating characters. This poster gets all of those characters together and keeps the same visual style, so I guess I can’t complain about it too much. Still, it’s sort of a dull ending for a campaign that had a great [...]



G. I. Joe Posters

So, here we have three men and two women. All standing against pretty much the same background, all dressed in very similar black clothes, all doing some “cool” poses and all carrying generic looking guns. Makes the characters look all the same. But their faces should add a good deal of uniqueness to each poster, [...]
