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. [...]

Where The Wild Things Are Poster

This is not my favorite image from Wild Things. Not by far. But I still can’t help but to appreciate the mesmerizing dream like tone that all the posters (and the trailer) for this movie have had. Endless fascinating, even in the lesser incarnations, like the one above. (Via IMPAwards)

The Day After a Couple Of Years From Now

Well, destroying the White House worked great for the marketing of Independence Day. And a giant wave worked as part of the marketing for The Day After Tomorrow. So why not have a giant wave that destroys the White House? That’s got to double the profits, right? These posters for 2012 are pretty similar to [...]

Prince of Persia Posters

I think Peter nails it: these posters look like glossy magazine covers. Quite serious and somber glossy magazine covers in fact. Which strikes me as pretty odd, considering this is an epic adventure through an enchanted land. I’m sort of getting the adventure part, but the enchanted land and the epic escape me. Lots of [...]

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Poster

A quick perusal of my posts about the first Transformers informs me the I actually liked its posters much less than I remembered. But there were at least a couple of very good ones. And I was very interested in seeing each and every one of the posters, and was happy to analyze them to [...]

Brothers Bloom Posters

April 15th, 2009 at 9:32 pm » Comments (5)

Ok, first off, this is not an official poster for Brothers Bloom. Instead it’s something the director asked his cousin to cook up. Still, it’s worth posting. Even tough I’m not a big fan of this particular drawing I think it still shows the potential drawn posters have to mesmerize and sell movies. Could we [...]

Three Times Star Trek

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 [...]

Land of the Lost Poster

January 5th, 2009 at 9:37 pm » Comments (7)

There are a few things about this poster that confuse me. First, the poster seems to position Land of the Lost as a pretty straight fantasy/adventure. However, both the film and the poster star Will Ferrell, who isn’t exactly known for playing it straight. So, is this a more serious turn for Will? Or is [...]

Separated at Birth: Inkheart and Bedtime Stories

October 14th, 2008 at 9:41 pm » Comments (6)

(click on the images to make them larger) Two films about fantastic stories that come to life? Oh, it’s on. Although since one film has Adam Sandler and the backing of Disney and the other has Brendan Fraser I’m guessing it won’t be much of a fight. I do think the design in general and [...]

Authenticity is Overrated

October 7th, 2008 at 9:58 pm » Comments (2)

This poster might very well not be an official poster, but is that reason enought not to post it? I say no. A half angel, half demon statue might be an overly literal visual representation of a movie called Angels & Demons, but you know what? I don’t really care. It works. And the background [...]
