Catching Up is Hard to Do

August 26th, 2008 at 12:03 am » Comments (6)

Well, since I complained about the lack of originality of the last blood drive poster I guess I should commend them for trying something a little different. Not really different enough to be striking, but I appreciate he effort. Can you say brooding? Can you say it while constantly looking down? Mister Payne looks like [...]



Conan Then

July 18th, 2008 at 9:31 pm » Comments (3)

The above poster for the very first Conan has become sort of a cult item, and it’s remarkable for being pretty consistent with much of the artwork done for the Conan character over the years. Still, considering the sheer amount of pulpy goodness associated with character (just check the covers for Savage Sword of Conan) [...]



Conan Poster

This poster made me realize just how much I associate Conan with the Governator. The image doesn’t show Conan’s head (as far as I know the actor hasn’t been cast yet) but just by seeing the body and the sword I immediately imagine Schwarzenegger’s head on top of it. The funny thing is that I’m [...]



The Semi-Weekly Round Up: Not White Enough Edition

Transsiberian I really wish they had done more with the whiteness of the ambient. But I guess this isn’t too bad. Mutant Chronicles It’s always funny to find a new poster for a movie you wrote about a year ago. Apparently they used all that time to come up with a much worse poster design. [...]



A Title

These new banners for The Dark Knight present me with a conundrum. On one hand, I really don’t have anything more left to say about them. For a moment I thought about mentioning that as we get closer to the actual release of the film the posters are getting more action packed and chaotic, but [...]



Star Wars Posters: Still Good After All These Years

May 27th, 2008 at 11:08 pm » Comments (1)

The poster you see above was created by artist Matt Busch in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Return of the Jedi. It completes a cycle of commemorative posters featuring the villains of each movie from the original trilogy. The idea of a poster featuring just the villains is in itself cool. And Matt’s distinctive [...]



Indy IV Warm Up : The Last Crusade

May 22nd, 2008 at 2:57 pm » Comments (3)

When it came to The Last Crusade poster campaign the people at Lucasfilm, and I imagine Lucas and Spielberg themselves are the people in this case, decided to turn the reins to Drew Struzan. Well, not completely, after all anything he done still had to be approved and he was working from some instructions, but [...]



Indy IV Warm Up: Temple of Doom

If I say that the main poster for Temple of Doom, drawn by Bruce Wolfe, is the weakest of the the main posters created for the first three Indys I hope you’ll understand that it only suffers because it is being compared to truly great achievements. The truth is that there is plenty of things [...]



Indy IV Warm Up : Raiders of the Lost Ark

May 21st, 2008 at 12:37 am » Comments (0)

In anticipation of the release of Crystal Skull I have been spending some time lately looking at some of the great posters that were done for the previous Indy films. I had so much fun doing it I imagined you guys might appreciate some posting (and in many cases reposting) of images from these beautiful [...]



The Semi-Weekly Round-Up: Way Too Many Posters Get Released on Fridays Edition

May 16th, 2008 at 10:50 pm » Comments (2)

The Rocker I think I can outsource my thought on this one. Peter notices the resemblance between this and the posters for 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up. Meanwhile, Eric asks the question that is on my mind. The Dark Knight Yes, it’s yet another poster for The Dark Knight. I have to admit, even I [...]
