Horton Hears a Who Posters

December 21st, 2007 at 10:04 pm » Comments (4)

These posters for Horton Hears a Who are in many ways typical of animated movies. Cuddly adorable characters standing against a background made of a bright color. The character posters are quite sparse, with a very small title treatment and with the character themselves often not occupying that much space in the poster. But I [...]

New Wall-E Poster

November 19th, 2007 at 5:40 pm » Comments (0)

I’m stunned at how much emotion the little robot can convey. Unlike the very anthropomorphic characters of Robots, Wall-E looks a lot like a realistic robot. And yet, it is full of expression, even in a still image like this. And I think this combination is at the center of why the character seems so [...]

First Kung-Fu Panda Poster

November 1st, 2007 at 9:23 am » Comments (0)

It’s a movie about a panda that knows kung-fu, so we have an image of a panda in a kung-fu position. Brilliant! Well, ok, maybe not brilliant, but the right choice anyway. And the concept is well executed. The Panda is expressive and kind of funny, the background places the film in a foreign location, [...]

Bee Movie Poster

You know, when I saw the “ball hits bee” scene in the trailer for Bee Movie I didn’t find it funny. Seeing what amounts to a still of that same scene doesn’t make it any funnier. And since we are talking about unfunny things, that tagline? Honey just got funny? Yeah, not doing it for [...]

Wall-E Teaser Poster

Man, I really, really love this teaser poster for Wall-E. So beautiful and so clearly filled with emotion. It immediately makes me love the little robot. And at the same time, I feel a little sad for him. he looks so lonely in there, looking at the empty sky. Pixar is obviously trying to do [...]

Family Guy Star Wars Poster

September 7th, 2007 at 12:12 am » Comments (2)

I generally don’t do TV posters here, but I think this Family Guy one, for the season premiere episode, has just enough movie in it to make it relevant. You know, after years and years of seeing Star Wars (and it’s posters!) being spoofed you would think that the novelty would wear off. And yet, [...]

New Beowulf Poster

August 29th, 2007 at 1:10 pm » Comments (1)

Like I said before, main main worry with this film is that the animation technique they are using might not work for me. I totally trust the people involved with the film to deliver a great story presented beautifully. But if the underlying animation technique leaves me cold it won’t matter how well everything else [...]

A Look at Pixar’s History Through Their Posters

July 3rd, 2007 at 12:00 pm » Comments (3)

Another year, another Pixar movie opening at number one. To honor Pixar’s spotless track record, here is a quick look at it’s history, and at the posters that illustrated it. Toy Story (1995) When Toy Story was released the hubbub was about it being the first fully computer animated feature film. Well, time has passed, [...]

New The Simpsons Movie Poster

June 21st, 2007 at 6:40 pm » Comments (2)

I think that Chris over at Movie Marketing Madness correctly pinpoints the problem with the posters for The Simpsons Movie: they aren’t specifically about the movie; they are all just general posters featuring The Simpsons. The big question the marketing push for this movie has to answer is “Why should I pay to see this [...]

See our family. And feel better about yours. Heh. the nice people over at brought us all these new Simpsons character posters. Nothing too ground breaking here, but a nice reminder that the film is coming.
