The Family that Preys Poster

July 2nd, 2008 at 11:45 pm » Comments (2)

I always hated those optical illusion black and white things that could be more than one image, depending on how you look at it. They always made me feel like I might be missing something that everybody else is seeing: “Wow, that witch flying a frog into Santa’s house is pretty amazing!” meanwhile I’m seeing [...]



The Semi-Weekly Round Up: Not White Enough Edition

June 24th, 2008 at 11:19 pm » Comments (1)

Transsiberian I really wish they had done more with the whiteness of the ambient. But I guess this isn’t too bad. Mutant Chronicles It’s always funny to find a new poster for a movie you wrote about a year ago. Apparently they used all that time to come up with a much worse poster design. [...]



Red Roses and Petrol Poster

June 6th, 2008 at 11:45 pm » Comments (3)

What bothers me about this poster isn’t so much that it’s bad, because it’s bad in a very harmless dull way. What bothers me is that it is a waste of a wonderfully visual title. Red Rose and Petrol. Just hearing it isn’t your mind assaulted by visions of deep sensual red against overpowering pitch [...]



Synecdoche, New York Poster

May 30th, 2008 at 11:19 pm » Comments (3)

I’m a big, big fan of Charlie Kauffman, writer of such incredible recent films as Adaptation and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and I’m really looking forward to his directorial debut, Synecdoche, New York, even tough the reviews so far haven’t been exactly splendid. So when I read that there was a poster out [...]



Choke Poster

May 23rd, 2008 at 10:42 pm » Comments (1)

Choke is not meant to be a big film. If it becomes a cult flick like Fight Club I’m sure the people involved with making it would be simply ecstatic. So the goal of the poster isn’t to appeal to a broad audience, but to really fire up a small but possibly loyal core group [...]



Spicing Up the Poster: The Wackness

May 7th, 2008 at 12:31 am » Comments (0)

(click for larger versions) I almost wrote a post about the first poster for The Wackness, but ended up deciding against it. My feeling was that there were some interesting things about it, but in the end the poster setting was just a little too dull in way that seemed contradictory with the colorful energy [...]



The Semi-Weekly Round Up: Russian Speed Racer, The Promotion, Familiar Strangers, Final You Don’t mess With Zohan Poster, High School Musical 3

Russian Speed Racer Poster CTAPT! That’s a pretty long way to say Go. Of course, I have no idea how it’s pronounced so maybe it’s really brief when people actually speak it. As for the poster, it’s not as good as most of the Speed Racer poster, but it’s still kind of cool in the [...]



The Spider Movie Poster

April 14th, 2008 at 10:14 pm » Comments (1)

Not that many interesting new posters coming out these days, so let me take a moment to highlight a posters for smaller film that I have been meaning to talk about for a while. Here is a pretty amusing poster for Rober Sigl’s The Spider, depicting that ages old Turkish problem, half human/half-spider monsters. Now, [...]



Kim Ki-duk’s Dream Poster

April 9th, 2008 at 11:31 pm » Comments (0)

I’m highlighting this poster for two reasons. First, I have really liked director Kim Ki-duk’s films in the past and everything about his new movie seems to get me excited. Second, I really like the simple, clean and yet evocative design. Dream is one of those films with an weird but appealing premise that is [...]



Blindness Poster

April 9th, 2008 at 2:50 am » Comments (4)

Blindness’ story revolves around an epidemic of blindness that spreads quickly bringing society to a state of chaos. This first teaser poster for the movie focuses squarely on the sight loss aspect, giving little attention to the epidemic/chaos angle. We have the letters for the title arranged in a form reminiscent of an eye chart. [...]
