Madea Goes to The Same Place as Ever

January 12th, 2009 at 9:39 pm » Comments (3)

So we went from this… …to these. Hard to see much of a theme, a consistent mood or really anything that would make all these seem like they are for the same movie. Then again maybe the theme is Tyler Perry. As KamikazeKamel has pointed out before it’s sort of a tradition of Tyler Perry [...]



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 [...]



Madea Goes to Jail Poster

The posters for Tyler Perry’s movies are one of this site’s obsessions. So I just have to post the latest one. But even if I didn’t have to, I would do it anyway. Keeping with the tradition this early poster is beautiful and restrained, and feels and looks different from most of the other posters [...]



Hotel For Dogs Posters

I think the time has come for me to opine on the Hotel for Dogs poster campaign. And I have to say, it has been heavy on the dogs, not so much on the hotel part until this last one. Honestly, the movie is about dogs doing funny things (or at least wearing funny things, [...]



Something Movie # 123686

November 24th, 2008 at 9:37 pm » Comments (2)

About this poster, the IMP says: Kind of surprising that they would fashion the poster after the 2001 film Save the Last Dance. (Most recent spoof films seem to try focusing only on things that happened in the last week.) It does seem surprising at first glance, but thinking about it some more maybe it [...]



Funny People Poster

Oh funny people, why are you looking so emotional? You should look funny. Come on, make me laugh funny people! Dance for me! Dance an awkward funny dance! This is an interesting variation of the by now well known Judd Apatow poster design, known by some as the Sears Portrait Studio look. For the first [...]



And the Prize of Cutest Poster for a Movie with Porno in the Title Goes To…

November 10th, 2008 at 10:08 pm » Comments (1)

I think this approach is actually smarter and funnier than the “they won’t let us show even one frame because the movie is just so controversial” approach. And much, much better than the more clearly sexual poster. And not only is the contrast between the images and the title very funny, it also softens the [...]



Burn After Twilight

Today we have two sets of character posters. First, it’s the motley crew from Burn After Reading, appearing in some stylish posters with a light touch. Frances and George sure can open their eyes wide. All of the BAR posters use the same frame, which strikes em as being at the same time interesting a [...]



Zack and Miri Make a Porno Poster

September 16th, 2008 at 10:08 pm » Comments (1)

First, the set up: A poster that was not approved by the MPAA and so won’t be shown in the US. Then, the punchline: A poster that shows nothing of the movie itself. The second poster strikes me as very effective. The image isn’t exactly beautiful, but they were careful not to make it ugly [...]



Separeted at Birth: Mirror, Mirror on the Ground Edition

September 15th, 2008 at 10:44 pm » Comments (2)

Separating the poster in two and using the bottom half for a reflection that reveals another version of the character seems to be a popular design choice these days. Outside of these two posters we also had the poster for The Life Before Her Eyes, which went in a similar route. Of course, in the [...]
