9 + 9 + 9 = Too Much

June 5th, 2009 at 10:44 pm » Comments (8)

So, just to make everything clear. This year will see the release of 9 an animated film directed by Shane Acker which has this very cool Russian poster: Scary, funny and compelling in all the right ways isn’t it? Reminds me a little of Coraline, and I mean that in a good way. Also coming [...]



I’m Sorry, but I’m Contractually Obligated to Show Them All

September 23rd, 2008 at 11:12 pm » Comments (0)

SAW V, from France. The french are apparently traditionalists and thought the other poster was just too different. And since we are talking about different (and about SAW) here is a poster for REPO! The Gentic Opera. Much more interesting, with a clear style that you can also see in other materials for the movie. [...]



Mamma Mia! Posters: Domestic x German

March 27th, 2008 at 3:01 am » Comments (0)

(click for larger versions) The German poster for Mamma Mia! ups the testosterone level by about a thousand percent. Not only do we get to see the three possible fathers of the character played by Amanda Seyfried, we also get random young groovy dude (Dominic Cooper, I think). And yes, in this one we get [...]



Mamma Mia Movie Poster

January 17th, 2008 at 8:58 pm » Comments (3)

The first thing I noticed when I saw this poster was the scenery. The beautiful blue ocean on the back, the architecture, the flowers. The scenery was also one of the things that most caught my attention when watching the trailer. I guess I just expected a musical using ABBA’s songs to take place somewhere [...]



7 New Sweeney Todd Posters

November 23rd, 2007 at 9:37 am » Comments (25)

7 character posters for two characters. Seems like a bit of an overkill, doesn’t it? And the tone of all the posters is very similar, so the different versions for each character don’t seem to add much. Which is not to say that I don’t like the posters. In fact, I love them. I love [...]



Second Sweeney Todd Movie Poster

September 12th, 2007 at 8:20 pm » Comments (0)

This second poster for Sweeney Todd feels much more like a teaser poster than the first one. It shows much less of the main character, who only appears as a silhouette, and the setting is a street somewhere, which seems much less specific than the apartment in which the first poster was set. And the [...]



From Moulin Rouge to Hairspray – Posters from Recent Musicals

July 20th, 2007 at 10:13 pm » Comments (2)

Moulin Rouge was released in 2001 and it managed to do two impressive things: it made a decent amount of money and it was nominated for a best picture Oscar. Those two things were made a lot more amazing because the movie happened to be a musical, a genre many people thought was as good [...]



Hairspray Final Poster

June 1st, 2007 at 8:39 pm » Comments (4)

This final poster for Hairspray travels some of the same paths that the earlier posters travelled. Colorful! Fun! Fifties! Music! Star filled ensemble! And it does a good job of packing all that in. But with a musical, more than with any other kind of film, the trailer is the one that is going to [...]



Ten New Hairspray Character Posters

May 8th, 2007 at 10:35 pm » Comments (1)

Tommy DiChiara over at Cinematical has just posted ten brand new character posters from Hairspray, and they all look very much like the one above. Sure, the character changes, a little bit of the text changes and each one of the posters has a different, albeit equally loud, background color. But the overall effect is [...]



Hairspray Poster

April 20th, 2007 at 9:00 pm » Comments (0)

It’s colorful! It’s got pics of everybody, showcasing that the film has a large cast of well known actors! It shows their hair, which is not only a clever visual pun but also shows that the movie doesn’t take itself too seriously! Am I excited? Not yet! But I do think it will work pretty [...]
