John Carter (In Mars!) Poster

February 23rd, 2012 at 3:47 am » Comments (1)

I think this is my favorite John Carter poster so far. Such lovely, epic seeming scenery. And a great pulp book cover style. I’m still not convinced I will like the film, but this poster points at what I want it to be: pulp, epic, bizarre, otherworldly fun. Which is probably not what everybody wants. [...]



First The Hunger Games Poster

[Motion poster placed below the fold, because it's noisy. The above is the very similar, but motionless teaser poster] According to the press release this poster “really gives you a very FIRST glimpse at how the adaptation of the Suzanne Collin’s bestseller will be brought to life on the big screen!”. Well, that is one [...]



Goodbye, Harry Potter Character Posters

It was a tradition. Every year, they would appear: poster after poster with pretty much the same background (dark bluish background, because sinister things were going on) but with a different character in each of them. Posters with the main characters, posters with the main villains, posters with whichever secondary character was slightly more prominent [...]



Rare Exports Posters

November 10th, 2010 at 1:10 pm » Comments (7)

This poster for Rare Exports is so wonderfully wrong I just can’t stop starring at it. Obviously it’s a play on the traditional Christmas painting with some unique elements, the most clear of which is the caged and enraged Santa that is at the core of the movie’s concept. But the way in which they [...]



New Moon Posters

So, here we have a bunch of poster for the new Twilight movie. First, Werewolves! Now, Vampires! And, to finish off, we have … hmmm, more Vampires? With a human or two thrown in there? I think? Ok, ok, I don’t actually know anything about the series, so I’m not sure what I’m talking about. [...]



More Where The Wild Things Are Posters

What could I add that I haven’t said before? Nothing, I guess. But I can’t not post these character posters. That would be a treason of my very palpable excitement at these creatures and at the way they are being presented to us. (Via IMPAwards)



Where The Wild Things Are Poster

This is not my favorite image from Wild Things. Not by far. But I still can’t help but to appreciate the mesmerizing dream like tone that all the posters (and the trailer) for this movie have had. Endless fascinating, even in the lesser incarnations, like the one above. (Via IMPAwards)



Prince of Persia Posters

I think Peter nails it: these posters look like glossy magazine covers. Quite serious and somber glossy magazine covers in fact. Which strikes me as pretty odd, considering this is an epic adventure through an enchanted land. I’m sort of getting the adventure part, but the enchanted land and the epic escape me. Lots of [...]



G.I. Dull

May 28th, 2009 at 10:23 pm » Comments (1)

I complained that in the last batch of posters the characters in G.I. Joe all looked the same. Well, in this poster a much better job is done of distinguishing the bad guys from the good guys. The good guys are surrounded by blue flames and background. The bad guys are surrounded by red flames [...]



Feels Like Christmas

May 19th, 2009 at 9:15 pm » Comments (6)

This poster for A Christmas Carol hits just the perfect balance between seeming like a hundred posters you have seen before and still having enough fresh elements to appear modern. Which is exactly as it should be. Obviously you can’t have a poster that makes the film seem like something straight from the 80′s. And [...]
