The Amazing Spider-Man Posters

May 15th, 2012 at 10:49 am » Comments (13)

This poster gives an impressive amount of prime space to the man-made web shooter. I understand that this is one of the differences between this reboot and the not-so-old movies, but, ahmmm, I think there are, like, three people in the whole world who care. Outside of this little detail, I’m really not sure what [...]



The Avengers Get Together (In a Poster)

March 1st, 2012 at 10:16 am » Comments (4)

Well, it’s really by the book. All of our heroes against a city in de midst of being destructed. Iron-Man front and center. No one wearing masks. Gets the point across, but doesn’t show much in terms of style. And certainly doesn’t take any risk at all with the material. Probably will do the job [...]



First The Dark Knight Rises Poster

So, if your question was “Will The Dark Knight Rises have some awesome posters?” the answer turns out to be yes, very much so. It must be fun designing posters for this movie. You get a bunch of iconic symbols and characters to work with. It’s the third outing in this particular series, so everybody [...]



UK and France Represent

Last week I, very lightly, mocked the repetition of some design decisions in the posters for the X-Men series. Well, Today France totally shut me up. Different characters in every poster! Well, one or two different characters in every poster, but still… I have to admit that, as far as selling the movie goes, this [...]

The Finnish would like you to know it’s X-MEN Origins: Wolverine At least this time they don’t seem to be walking. (Via IMPAwards)



Wolverine Poster

Seeing this poster you might find yourself remembering this other poster: Those claws, they sure are useful. They can represent a three if you’re advertising the third X-Men film, or they can represent a W if you are advertising the first Wolverine movie. Is there anything they can’t do? Well, I guess it would be [...]



Ending With a Whimper, Not a Bang

January 29th, 2009 at 9:12 pm » Comments (0)

The Watchmen poster campaign has mostly kept a coherent visual style and used well the fascinating characters. This poster gets all of those characters together and keeps the same visual style, so I guess I can’t complain about it too much. Still, it’s sort of a dull ending for a campaign that had a great [...]



The Spirit Final Poster

November 18th, 2008 at 9:14 pm » Comments (0)

And so one of the more interesting poster campaigns of this year is coming to a close. Honestly, although I still think it’s quite a good campaign, it peaked too soon. That teaser poster was everything I wanted the posters for this film to be: sharp, strong and with a clear and unique visual style. [...]



Who Watches the Watchers of the Watchmen Posters

November 11th, 2008 at 10:17 pm » Comments (0)

Comic Books always struck me as a medium uniquely fit for movie adaptations. After all, they both tell stories through pictures and words. And if that is true for the transition between comic books and movies it’s even more true for the transition between comic books and movie posters. Giving a good source material (and [...]



Punisher: War Zone Lenticular Poster

October 10th, 2008 at 10:53 pm » Comments (1)

Lenticular posters are those 3D/moving things you sometimes see on you local cineplex. As you can imagine it’s not very easy to tell exactly the effect one of those will have in real life from a picture on the internet. For example, I quite liked this poster when I first saw it, but I was [...]
