Life is Hard for Everyone

Poor Donald Faison, not only has Mos Def suddenly become a bigger star than him, the guy also stole his arms! Tough luck, but are you going to do, right Donald? (Via Black Voices and IMPAwards)

Harry Potter and the Typical Harry Potter Poster

February 6th, 2009 at 9:15 pm » Comments (4)

Half-Blood prince is going to be the sixth Potter movie. So it’s no surprise that by now they have a marketing formula they think works and is not worth straying from. For the posters this means lots of character posters showing the characters either looking distressed or looking ready to fight back. Apparently it also [...]

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 [...]

Land of the Lost Poster

January 5th, 2009 at 9:37 pm » Comments (7)

There are a few things about this poster that confuse me. First, the poster seems to position Land of the Lost as a pretty straight fantasy/adventure. However, both the film and the poster star Will Ferrell, who isn’t exactly known for playing it straight. So, is this a more serious turn for Will? Or is [...]

A Walk Down Memory Lane

This weekend I ended up watching a fair chunk of Krull, which reminded me of just how much I liked this one back when I was a child. A truly under appreciated gem of a fantasy movie if you ask me. The posters, unfortunately, aren’t anything to write home about. Typical and uninspired eighties fair [...]

Separated at Birth: Inkheart and Bedtime Stories

(click on the images to make them larger) Two films about fantastic stories that come to life? Oh, it’s on. Although since one film has Adam Sandler and the backing of Disney and the other has Brendan Fraser I’m guessing it won’t be much of a fight. I do think the design in general and [...]

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

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 [...]

Japanese Dragonball Poster

Let me make a confession: I used to be a Dragonball fan. Really, really liked the show. And back on those old days I used to drool at the thought of a Dragonball movie. But the years have passed, my tastes have changed and boy is this looking like a bad idea now. Looking being [...]

Conan Then

July 18th, 2008 at 9:31 pm » Comments (3)

The above poster for the very first Conan has become sort of a cult item, and it’s remarkable for being pretty consistent with much of the artwork done for the Conan character over the years. Still, considering the sheer amount of pulpy goodness associated with character (just check the covers for Savage Sword of Conan) [...]
