Alternate Poster for Taking Woodstock

April 28th, 2009 at 10:14 pm » Comments (2)

[removed by request of the author] So, you have seen the official poster for Taking Woodstock. But now here you see John Malloy’s alternate version which the studio ultimately didn’t pick. It’s obvious from these two that they always wanted the poster to be quite psychedelic. In the end they went with an image that [...]



And the Prize for Most Improved Poster Goes to….

I’m not saying this is a great poster, but it is much, much better than the last poster. The new poster at least shows some humor and creativity in the attempt to convey and sell the movie’s premise. Also: basic skills in the use of colors. (Via IMPAwards)



Extract Teaser Poster

I guess this trend from a couple of years ago isn’t quite dead yet. Although this is a really painful turn for the genre. I do have to wonder about the effectiveness of this. Sure, it might get a few giggles. It might get noticed. But it makes the movie appear juvenile and alienates a [...]



Taking Woodstock Poster

April 8th, 2009 at 10:06 pm » Comments (3)

Is it possible to get an acid trip just from looking at a poster? It’s almost impossible to read anything on this poster, with the exception of the title. And even that is a little hard on the eyes. So you might not get the tagline “A Generation Began in His Backyard”. You might not [...]



Life is Hard for Everyone

Poor Donald Faison, not only has Mos Def suddenly become a bigger star than him, the guy also stole his arms! Tough luck, but are you going to do, right Donald? (Via Black Voices and IMPAwards)



My Life in Ruins Poster

March 11th, 2009 at 10:06 am » Comments (6)

Andre James from Row Three alerted me to this poster for My Life in Ruins and to the visual resemblance it has with this poster we saw not long ago for Mamma Mia! Initially I thought that maybe the poster for My Life in Ruins was somehow referencing or parodying the Mamma Mia! one. But [...]

Observe and Then Observe Some More

Fact: Knocked Up’s main poster was a big close-up of Rogen’s head. That movie earned over $148 million dollars domestically. Fact: Pineapple Express had a poster that was a big close-up of Rogen’s head, but also had several other equally important posters including many featuring James Franco. That movie earned over $87 million dollars domestically. [...]



Two Nights at the Museum

February 4th, 2009 at 9:34 pm » Comments (2)

I guess since we have all seen the first movie the weird inhabitants of the museum have no reason to hide anymore, either from us or from Ben. Which is kind of unfortunate because a lot of the magic of the first poster had to do with getting a glimpse of this world of wonders [...]



The 50′s Ain’t What They Used to Be

January 21st, 2009 at 8:27 pm » Comments (1)

I love 50′s style sci-fi posters. Especially the ones about invasions from out of space. This, for example, is great. And the idea of trying to use the style to create a poster for a film that as a bit of a parody of those movies is awesome. But this is not a good poster. [...]
