Conan Poster

July 14th, 2008 at 1:44 pm » Comments (1)

This poster made me realize just how much I associate Conan with the Governator. The image doesn’t show Conan’s head (as far as I know the actor hasn’t been cast yet) but just by seeing the body and the sword I immediately imagine Schwarzenegger’s head on top of it. The funny thing is that I’m [...]

Star Wars Posters: Still Good After All These Years

May 27th, 2008 at 11:08 pm » Comments (1)

The poster you see above was created by artist Matt Busch in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Return of the Jedi. It completes a cycle of commemorative posters featuring the villains of each movie from the original trilogy. The idea of a poster featuring just the villains is in itself cool. And Matt’s distinctive [...]

New International Posters for Prince Caspian

May 2nd, 2008 at 12:17 am » Comments (0)

We had already seen two posters for Prince Caspian, both of them compositions that gave us a general sense of all the stuff that goes on in the epic. Today we have three new posters that focus on particular characters and settings. We have the prince against a forest, the kids in some sort of [...]

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor Poster

May 1st, 2008 at 2:50 am » Comments (3)

This teaser poster reminds me of scenes in the first Mummy where Imhotep only had half his face or where he turned into sand. Harking back to those images is probably a smart choice. It uses and reinforces the already existing brand and adds something new to get people interested. In this case some oriental [...]

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 [...]

Final Forbidden Kingdom Poster

March 12th, 2008 at 11:39 pm » Comments (1)

Ok, so when the first teaser for Forbidden Kingdom came out I was a little upset because it didn’t explore what is probably the main attraction of the movie: the meeting of Jackie Chan and Jet Li. Then came the character posters, which I liked a lot more, but since they were character posters the [...]

I Am legend Posters: Domestic Vs. Spanish

March 6th, 2008 at 10:25 am » Comments (3)

(click on the posters for larger images) It’s not a huge difference but it’s an interesting one. The Spanish poster for I Am Legend has a very similar design to the main domestic poster, but instead of having Will Smith and the dog walking with the destroyed Brooklyn Bridge on the background we have them [...]

OneChanbara and Jack Brooks

February 8th, 2008 at 9:08 pm » Comments (1)

Zombies are awesome. Cowgirl in a bikini? Also awesome. Samurai swords? Even more awesome. So a poster for a movie that combines all those things has to be almost incomprehensibly awesome, right? Wrong. As you can see above, that poster turns out to be rather dull. That image would probably make for a fine cover [...]

New The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian Poster

January 31st, 2008 at 9:23 am » Comments (5)

So here we have the second poster for Prince Caspian, and it’s very consistent with the first poster. We have essentially the same colors and they are similarly distributed in the poster in a way that by itself would make the connection to the first poster obvious. Quite a strong unique visual identity they achieve [...]

New Forbidden kingdom Character Posters

January 30th, 2008 at 11:05 pm » Comments (1)

After the dreadful first poster there really wasn’t much way to go but up. But even considering that I’m still positively surprised by these posters for The Forbidden Kingdom. They give us a really good look at the main characters in the movie, and as it turns out each of them does have a very [...]
