New I Can do Bad All by Myself Poster

July 20th, 2009 at 8:49 pm » Comments (1)

And talking about weird, here is Madea as Dustin Hoffman in Straw Dogs. And this is why I’m still excited about new posters for Tyler Perry’s movies. They might not always be great (sometime they stink in fact), they might not always be original, but at least there a sense of trying to do something [...]

Thirst: Now With 30% Less Sex

June 26th, 2009 at 10:06 pm » Comments (0)

First… Later… Sang-hyun (played by top Korean star Song Kang-ho, of The Host) is a priest who cherishes life; so much so, that he selflessly volunteers for a secret vaccine development project meant to eradicate a deadly virus. But the virus takes the priest, and a blood transfusion is urgently ordered up for him. The [...]

I Smell a Crossover

One is a venerable bad boy still struggling with the acceptance he has received from the establishment. The other is a washed up TV star trying to matter again. They both like to stand alone in the posters for their films looking towards some place outside the image. Don’t miss their meeting in .. Public [...]

Bigger (Head) in Japan

One of the very best things about this Valkyrie poster was that it resisted the temptation of splashing a huge picture of Tom Cruise’s face all over itself. Well, no such restraint in Asia apparently as these Japanese and Korean posters show. Honestly, the restraint in the American version probably had a lot to do [...]

She is human. He is a vampire. They are both made of wax. Should be interesting. (Via Cinematical)

First, take a not great but still visually interesting poster. Then just apply two easy steps: 1. Make it brown. 2. Have the giant heads of two lovers floating over the whole thing Tada! Your poster now looks just like thousands of others crowding the multiplex. (Via IMPAwards)

Valkyrie Poster

Every once in a while I come across a poster which is by itself nice, but that doesn’t seem to completely fit the movie. This is one of those cases. Which is to say that I like the poster. It’s not brilliant, but it does contain some creativity, style and smart use of colors. Much, [...]

Changeling Poster

Oh my good, that giant lady is going to eat the child! Someone DO SOMETHING! I think I know what happened here. There was once a poor poster designer who would make poster after poster for films with big stars. He would do the floating heads thing, because that’s what he was asked to do, [...]

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 [...]

Revolutionary Road Poster

Over at IMPAwards the IMP mentions that this poster just shows us that the film stars the same people that starred in Titanic, which he muses might just be enough. And indeed I think the the new encounter of this two will be central to the marketing. The funny thing is, Leonardo and Kate really [...]
