France Gets Me Best

May 13th, 2008 at 12:46 am » Comments (13)

Let’s get this out of the way first. Yes, it’s purple. A very, very bright purple. Surely that is not for everybody. And yet I think it’s probably the best poster I have seen for Sex and the City. It’s essentially a re-edition of the first teaser poster, but with all the women and not [...]

Germany Gets Me

May 7th, 2008 at 12:25 am » Comments (2)

This German poster is basically just like the two last posters, but it features all the Sex and the City women. As it’s been pointed out to me, Carrie is indeed the main star of the show. But honestly, for me it would be nothing without the others. So I like this poster a lot [...]

New Sex and the City Movie Posters

April 30th, 2008 at 7:22 pm » Comments (2)

These two new Sex and the City posters are mostly unremarkable. Carrie walking the streets of NY, looking stylish. Probably gets at part of the core appeal of the franchise, but seems less effective, and a lot less visually appealing, than the first teaser poster. But what I do find interesting is that once again [...]

P.S. I Love You Posters – Domestic Vs. French

March 11th, 2008 at 4:59 pm » Comments (8)

(click for a larger version) It’s not just the big blockbusters that get multiple posters. Here, for example, is the domestic poster and the one used in France for P.S. I Love You. The domestic version (which was also used in several other countries, by the way) goes with a very sweet image of Butler [...]

Priceless Poster
(click for a larger version)

And here is a new poster for the French comedy Priceless, which is, according to the official synopsys, “a fresh re-imagining of the cinema classic, BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S.” [...]

The Rules of Attraction Poster

Kurt has a post over at RowThree talking about The Rules of Attraction which features a pic of the poster above. I had never actually seen that version of the poster before, but it’s too perfect as a Valentines Day’s poster for me not to showcase it here too.[...]

Leatherhead Posters

Ok, take a good look at this poster. We have George Clooney and that guy from The Office, plus a bunch of other dudes. All of them wearing some very old football gear and sporting really funny facial expressions. So I’m thinking this is a somewhat broad comedy/farce revolving around the early days of football. [...]

Sex and the City Movie Poster

One of the things that you have to do whenever you have a film that is based on a TV series is to convince people that this is more than simply an extra long episode and that the movie really is worth the trip to the theater. And I think that’s a bit of what [...]

Made of Honor Poster

November 20th, 2007 at 10:38 pm » Comments (2)

So, here is the deal: you either find the idea of Patrick Dempsey as a maid of honor hilarious or you don’t. No poster is going to make you want to see this movie if that basic premise doesn’t appeal to you. At least no poster that is at all honest about the film’s content. [...]

27 Dresses Poster

October 17th, 2007 at 11:08 pm » Comments (4)

Often the poster designers seem not to know what to do with all the credits they have to place in the poster, and they end up just cramming all that text in a corner where it doesn’t get on the way too much. So I think that what they have done here, incorporating the credits [...]
