5 Classics, New Clothes

August 3rd, 2011 at 11:27 am » Comments (2)

Because seeing other artist’s vision of what a poster for a classic films could be is always fun, here are five posters for Sci-Fi Classics, as created by Dean Walton. One of the most interesting things about this batch, at least for me, is that most of the films depicted also had great posters back [...]

More 2012

The giant waves seem a little underwhelming in this image. If you are not paying close attention you might confuse them with the mountains they are engulfing. But this problem aside I actually quite like the idea of the poster, and of the related scene we can see in the trailer. The basic formula for [...]

The Day After a Couple Of Years From Now

Well, destroying the White House worked great for the marketing of Independence Day. And a giant wave worked as part of the marketing for The Day After Tomorrow. So why not have a giant wave that destroys the White House? That’s got to double the profits, right? These posters for 2012 are pretty similar to [...]

Pandorum Reveals More!

Fear what happens next. Well, they say we fear what we don’t know, and based on the posters released so far I really have no idea what happens next. Or what is happening now. I am saddened to see that Pandorum is decisively walking away from the brand of “movie about tubes going in and [...]

More Transformers

This is kind of a weird poster. Here we have our favorite heroes running either towards or from some unseen something, being shown from sort of a strange angle. And the robots look uncharacteristically cartoonish, considering how much of this series has been based around showing what these giant creatures might look like in real [...]

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Poster

May 13th, 2009 at 11:09 pm » Comments (7)

A quick perusal of my posts about the first Transformers informs me the I actually liked its posters much less than I remembered. But there were at least a couple of very good ones. And I was very interested in seeing each and every one of the posters, and was happy to analyze them to [...]

Pandorum Explained

So taking this poster and the last poster in consideration I can say that Pandorum is about having various tubes inserted all over your body. It’s nice when the posters clearly tells you what to expect from a movie. Another plus: very consistent visual identity. Pandorum is THE tubes in body movie. (Via IMPAwards)

Moon Posters

I’m intrigued by these two poster for Moon, both of which I quite like. The one above is new, the one below is the one we had seen before. Both posters have the same general objective: put the focus in Sam Rockwell’s character and give us a sense of his isolation (the film has him [...]

Star Trek?

April 1st, 2009 at 11:03 pm » Comments (6)

It took me a good 30 seconds to actually realize that this was a picture of a moving (I imagine) enterprise. Before that I kept seeing a weird shower head. I think the goal of the Star Trek marketing is to keep the core trekkie audience interested while also significantly broadening the series appeal. A [...]
