Crank 2 Teaser Poster

January 14th, 2009 at 9:12 pm » Comments (2)

This is Crank: This is Crank on drugs: Or, if you prefer, this is the first poster for Crank 2 : High Voltage. The posters seem to indicate that Crank 2 will be just like the first, but even more exaggerated. I find it hard to believe they can do something that tops the first, [...]



Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Poster Shows More Than Meets the Eye .. But Only a Little More

January 13th, 2009 at 9:15 pm » Comments (4)

I think it’s hard to argue against the poster campaign for the first Transformers. In hindsight I think it wasn’t all that inspired or original, but it did use the movie’s main assets (GIANT ROBOTS!) very well and got the job done. Maybe it could have been better artistically, but from a marketing perspective it [...]



The Streets Will Fight Again

I know that when you find yourself having to design the poster for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li you have been dealt a very bad hand. But surely the result can be better than this. The good thing about this poster is that it does show two people fighting, and that is the essence [...]



New Terminator Salvation Poster

December 1st, 2008 at 8:03 pm » Comments (9)

I have to admit, the Terminator’s face emerging from the destroyed remains of a city is one of the coolest poster images I have seen this year. A very good idea expertly executed in this case. And this flash “moving” version makes the whole thing even better. I wonder how long it will take until [...]



The Spirit Final Poster

November 18th, 2008 at 9:14 pm » Comments (0)

And so one of the more interesting poster campaigns of this year is coming to a close. Honestly, although I still think it’s quite a good campaign, it peaked too soon. That teaser poster was everything I wanted the posters for this film to be: sharp, strong and with a clear and unique visual style. [...]



Who Watches the Watchers of the Watchmen Posters

November 11th, 2008 at 10:17 pm » Comments (0)

Comic Books always struck me as a medium uniquely fit for movie adaptations. After all, they both tell stories through pictures and words. And if that is true for the transition between comic books and movies it’s even more true for the transition between comic books and movie posters. Giving a good source material (and [...]



Bigger (Head) in Japan

November 5th, 2008 at 9:57 pm » Comments (0)

One of the very best things about this Valkyrie poster was that it resisted the temptation of splashing a huge picture of Tom Cruise’s face all over itself. Well, no such restraint in Asia apparently as these Japanese and Korean posters show. Honestly, the restraint in the American version probably had a lot to do [...]



The Day Earth Stood Still Starring … Tom Cruise?

October 15th, 2008 at 12:41 pm » Comments (1)

Ok, maybe he doesn’t look exactly like Cruise, but Keanu is looking even less like himself in this poster, which makes this a weird design. A poster for a big effects blockbuster that doesn’t really showcase the effects and that makes the star it’s putting front and center hard to recognize. The poster also reminds [...]



Compare and Contrast: American and French Posters For Max Payne

October 13th, 2008 at 10:26 pm » Comments (7)

I guess the french thought the whole ray of lights/angel was just too much. A snowy night on the other hand gave the image of our kneeled hero just the right amount of over the top melodrama. (Via TheMovingPicture and IMPAwards)



Punisher: War Zone Lenticular Poster

October 10th, 2008 at 10:53 pm » Comments (1)

Lenticular posters are those 3D/moving things you sometimes see on you local cineplex. As you can imagine it’s not very easy to tell exactly the effect one of those will have in real life from a picture on the internet. For example, I quite liked this poster when I first saw it, but I was [...]
