Exodus Poster

September 13th, 2007 at 8:12 pm » Comments (1)

I think this needs some explanation. Exodus is the new film from director Ho-Cheung Pang. It’s supposedly a crime story with some comedy and it involves a policeman the catches a guy peeping into a ladies bathroom. The peeping tom claims that the women are arranging a plot to get rid of all the men, [...]



Eastern Promises Poster

(click for a large version) You know, I understand the urge to add the image strip towards the bottom of the poster with the faces of Viggo Mortensen and Naomi Watts. After all, if you are paying good money for two somewhat known actors you might as well plaster their faces all over the marketing [...]



No Country for Old Men Poster

July 22nd, 2007 at 12:09 pm » Comments (0)

My impression is that No Country for Old Men will be significantly darker and more serious than most Coen’s movies. The poster seems to confirm that impression. It’s a simple poster really. A man holding a shotgun running through some desolated landscape, with Javier Bardem’s menacing eyes looming behind him. But it does a good [...]



Gone Baby Gone Poster

July 19th, 2007 at 11:06 pm » Comments (1)

There are two main elements to this poster. The first is the city, represented by the skyline. I’m guessing that people how know Boston will find it easily recognizable, but I don’t know Boston so I could very well be wrong. Still, it gives us a good feeling of the place where the movie takes [...]



Nancy Drew Movie Poster

Well, this film is opening next Friday, so I guess I should say something about it. Not sure what tough, I’m so not the intended audience for this film it’s not even funny. It’s certainly a slick looking poster, and a nice showcases for the star, which might appeal to the pre-teen girl demographic. It [...]



I Know Who Killed Me Poster

I’m guessing that the blue rose, which also appears on one of the publicly released photos, is somehow important for the plot. It also makes for a very memorable and striking image. And the little blood drop in the bottom is a subtle but smart reference to the topic of the movie. All that said, [...]



First American Gangster Posters

Nice posters. Very classy. Very stylish. Very dark. The choice of cutting the stars’ head in half is a little odd, but you can still tell who those people are, so I guess it’s okay. However, I do think that the Denzel Washington one has a little too much black and not enough white. The [...]



Fracture

This is a typical poster for a thriller. Dark, two floating heads, white and red letters. All very, very common for this type of film. This second poster is a little different, and it caused some problems. Some people in Boston, including anti domestic violence groups, were upset with the poster and called for it [...]



Disturbia Poster

As it has been mentioned elsewhere, this poster is very reminiscent of Hitchcock’s Rear Window. As is, in fact, the whole premise of the movie. I don’t think that is such a good idea, from a marketing standpoint. People don’t want to go see something that seems like a cheap knock off of a great [...]



The Lookout Poster

I can’t talk about this poster without mention this interview in which director Scott Frank talks about how he hates the trailer and the poster for the movie because they misrepresent the kind of movie this is. So that is a big problem with the poster right there. The poster in itself, when considered outside [...]
