Three Times Star Trek

March 26th, 2009 at 7:51 pm » Comments (0)

The three international posters released for Star Trek today are very different from each other. First we have this one: Basically the approach here was to use the big heads floating over landscape design and to put in the landscape two of the most striking images found in the trailer: Kirk on a bike and [...]



Terminator: Salvation Gets Another Poster

March 20th, 2009 at 9:07 pm » Comments (3)

One of the complaints I had about the last batch of Terminator posters was that they didn’t use the series iconography well enough. In that point this poster is a big leap forward. The T skull as it exists in this poster is easyly recognizable in a way nothing on the other posters was. It [...]



Terminator and Some Regular Posters

March 17th, 2009 at 10:54 pm » Comments (1)

I liked the previous posters for Terminator: Salvation, including the very cool motion poster. These new character posters are a bit of a disappointment tough. Very usual action posters, with the characters looking busy and loads of stuff flying around, which mostly serves to muddle the image. The new posters don’t really explore in any [...]



The 50′s Ain’t What They Used to Be

January 21st, 2009 at 8:27 pm » Comments (1)

I love 50′s style sci-fi posters. Especially the ones about invasions from out of space. This, for example, is great. And the idea of trying to use the style to create a poster for a film that as a bit of a parody of those movies is awesome. But this is not a good poster. [...]



Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Poster Shows More Than Meets the Eye .. But Only a Little More

January 13th, 2009 at 9:15 pm » Comments (4)

I think it’s hard to argue against the poster campaign for the first Transformers. In hindsight I think it wasn’t all that inspired or original, but it did use the movie’s main assets (GIANT ROBOTS!) very well and got the job done. Maybe it could have been better artistically, but from a marketing perspective it [...]



New Terminator Salvation Poster

December 1st, 2008 at 8:03 pm » Comments (9)

I have to admit, the Terminator’s face emerging from the destroyed remains of a city is one of the coolest poster images I have seen this year. A very good idea expertly executed in this case. And this flash “moving” version makes the whole thing even better. I wonder how long it will take until [...]



The Day Earth Stood Still Starring … Tom Cruise?

October 15th, 2008 at 12:41 pm » Comments (1)

Ok, maybe he doesn’t look exactly like Cruise, but Keanu is looking even less like himself in this poster, which makes this a weird design. A poster for a big effects blockbuster that doesn’t really showcase the effects and that makes the star it’s putting front and center hard to recognize. The poster also reminds [...]



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

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. [...]



This, That and the Other Thing

August 11th, 2008 at 11:46 pm » Comments (0)

I kind of thought that the French and other international posters for W. were going to use something a little more provocative, since the subject matter shouldn’t be quite as sensitive and controversial in international markets. But I guess they think the film is provocative enough by itself and are playing it cool with the [...]



Remakes and Sequels: Still Milking My Childhood

July 30th, 2008 at 11:47 pm » Comments (2)

The Friday the 13th series has a special place in my heart. The very first real horror movie I ever saw, back when I was a tender and innocent child, was a Friday. Not entirely sure which. I would afterwards be scared time and time again by the other installments of this great series. As [...]
