International 10,000 BC Posters

January 16th, 2008 at 10:11 pm » Comments (0)

These new posters for 10,000 BC follow the basic formula of showing primitive men’s struggle against giant animals that we saw in the previous posters, but they do a much worse job of turning these struggles into iconic images. Outside from the poster which showcases predominantly the guy that I imagine is our fearless hero, [...]



Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D Poster

January 10th, 2008 at 8:50 pm » Comments (5)

Even tough some recent films have had very good success with it in limited releases, I think that the whole 3D movie experience still faces some resistance, especially among the slightly older movie going set. This has a lot to do with what happened the last time we were seeing a tide of 3D movies. [...]



The Forbidden Kingdom Poster

December 19th, 2007 at 11:19 pm » Comments (1)

This poster for The Forbidden Kingdom is very forgettable. Some generic ancient Chinese imagery, four guys we can’t recognize with their backs to us, and a text that, even if it was interesting, is way too small to be read. This film has, supposedly, two things going for it: some amazing visuals and, by far [...]



Second 10,000 BC Poster

December 17th, 2007 at 9:35 am » Comments (5)

I’m not sure I understand what is going on in this poster. Is there some kind of war going on down there? And if that is the case why is the dude fighting a sabertooth? Shouldn’t he be more worried about the fight below? Confusion aside, this poster is very consistent with the previous poster, [...]



New Spiderwick Chronicles Posters

December 12th, 2007 at 9:06 pm » Comments (1)

This new Spiderwick Chronicles poster uses much of the image of the first poster, but adds some darker colors, a few little monsters and a beware sign. So, it basically turns what was a teaser poster that hinted at the possibility of magic and danger into a poster that shows us those things. It also [...]



I Am Legend Banners

November 29th, 2007 at 10:09 pm » Comments (8)

These banners for I Am Legend are quite cool. The posters so far focused solely on New York, showing it devastated. This collection broadens the scope of the destruction immensely. And to a certain extent they drive home the point that Will Smith isn’t just alone on New York, on on America. He is alone [...]



The Round-Up: Cassandra’s Dream, Awake, Debaters, Cloverfield, Charlie Wilson, Spiderwick, Nanking and The Walker

November 26th, 2007 at 7:28 am » Comments (0)

In what may become a weekly thing, here is a round-up of recent posters that for some reason or other didn’t get a full post. Cassandra’s Dream (source) The design here is just original enough to make the look of the poster memorable. Very tasteful too. Awake (source) I really hated this poster the first [...]



Lots of Golden Compass Posters

November 8th, 2007 at 9:01 pm » Comments (1)

I know The Golden Compass is a big movie and all, but man it has had a lot of posters. The latest ones are another batch of character posters. They are very different from the last batch of character posters, even tough some of the same characters appear. The new posters are, in general, very [...]



New The Water Horse Poster

October 16th, 2007 at 11:43 pm » Comments (2)

This new poster for The Water Horse is less cutesy than the last one, and in part because of that I think it does a better job of appealing to the young ones without repelling the adults that will have to take them to see the film. The poster also more clearly positions the movie [...]



Southland Tales UK Quad

October 15th, 2007 at 7:30 pm » Comments (2)

Strange. That is one word that could be used to describe Donnie Darko, the first feature film from director Richard Kelly. And I’m sure it will also describe his second film, Southland Tales. But the question is, will Tales be the good kind of strange? Darko certainly was, so there is some hope. This UK [...]
