This is 40 Poster

May 10th, 2012 at 11:09 am » Comments (0)

Ok, honestly, you know what most caught my attention in this poster? No, not the scene of Paul Rudd in the toilet. No, not the iPad, apparently thrown in to make the old “going to the bathroom in front of your significant other” gag seem more hip and modern. No, not even the pretty clever [...]

To Rome With Love Poster

May 10th, 2012 at 11:06 am » Comments (1)

I don’t have much to say about this poster for To Rome With Love. Well known style, a functional, but not very exciting one. But I would like to point out that adding a little bit of texture to the backgrounds really does wonders to make this pleasant to look at. A more typical solid [...]

Totally Random Poster of the Week: Rubber

September 23rd, 2011 at 11:04 am » Comments (2)

From the Wikipedia article: “In the California desert, a tire comes to life and embarks on a killing spree as an audience watches the events unfold through binoculars. The tire kills by vibrating intensely and psycho-kinetically causing people’s heads to explode.” To be honest, this sounds like one of those concepts that sounds great on [...]

Young Adult Poster

Young Adult is the name of this movie. It is also a lit genre. And the film has as its main character an author (of young adult books? I don’t know). So, inspired by all that, we get a poster that looks like a book cover. Clever idea, and they really went the extra mile [...]

The Artist Poster

August 24th, 2011 at 10:55 am » Comments (2)

So, for context, ‘The Artist’ is a movie about a silent star struggling with the advent of sound, that itself is a black and white silent movie. It was apparently quite the hit in Cannes and will be released in the U.S. in November. The poster, which is mostly black and white (and silent!) is [...]

American Reunion

August 18th, 2011 at 11:14 am » Comments (1)

I’m pretty sure American Reunion is a bad idea, likely to lead to a bad movie. I mean, considering that this series has already released a bunch of straight to video films, how can I believe that this is anything but a somewhat desperate attempt from a bunch of people to revive more successful days? [...]

Brother’s Justice Poster

Poor Dax. Poor, poor Dax. I feel sorry for the guy, but I’m afraid he has no one to blame but himself. After all he is not only the star of the film, but also the writer and director. And I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that he is also doing the posters. Just [...]

No Kidding Sherlock

October 27th, 2009 at 8:51 pm » Comments (10)

The Sherlock Holmes posters so far have been pretty consistent visually, always sporting some fog, and blue tinge (a little more pronounced here) and backgrounds that scream period. Not earth shattering stuff, but distinctive enough to to be remembered and essentially ok for a movie which will be sold as “Robert Downey Jr. IS Sherlock [...]

The Title That Changed

October 14th, 2009 at 9:47 pm » Comments (12)

In the transition from the UK to America The Boat that Rocked got a new title and a slightly different poster. I guess they thought the original just wasn’t zany and fun enough, so we get more people walking the plank (including a girl!), a second, more party-centric boat, and some stuff in the title. [...]

The Informant Poster

August 3rd, 2009 at 9:16 pm » Comments (1)

What I love about this poster is how the combination of the type and the way that the title is broken into several lines allows me to think of a 50′s style monster movie about the terrible inform-ant. Much more dangerous than your regular giant ant. Beyond that this is the second poster for the [...]
