Two Posters for the Remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still

July 23rd, 2008 at 11:48 pm » Comments (1)

Just the other day I found myself taking a long hard look at the classic poster for The Day the Earth Stood Still, which you can see below. A truly great fifties poster. Because of that I had the images of that earlier poster in my mind when I went over to ComingSoon to look [...]



International Posters for The Happening

May 21st, 2008 at 12:34 am » Comments (3)

The marketing pitch for The Happenning has been pretty clear from the get go. Creepy horror movie in which everybody dies mysteriously, leaving only a few people to deal with the aftermath. It’s not an exactly an unique premise, but it is one that has given us some strong stories, and it’s good hook to [...]



Polish X-Files Poster

And yet another poster with a weird looking head. Seems there are a lot of those this days. As for the rest of the poster, I think like the spirit of it. It seems like it tries to move on from relying solely on brand recognition and tries to turn X-Files 2 into something that [...]



First X-Files 2 Poster

How strong is the X-Files brand right now? That is the question I find myself asking as I look at this poster. It’s a fine teaser in many ways. We have Mulder and Scully, we have the big X and we have a sense of possible danger and of mysterious things being revealed. It’s simple, [...]



Unused Alternative Ideas for the Jumper Posters

March 20th, 2008 at 12:04 pm » Comments (5)

Artist Chuck Anderson has posted to his site several images for possible Jumper posters that he made on commission from Concept Arts. In the end Concept went with something different, but it’s still enlightening to look at these other possibilities. I’m stricken by how much these diverge from the concept they ultimately used. All these [...]



International Jumper Poster

I really liked the previous Jumper poster because it made me realize, for the first time, how cool the concept behind the movie (a guy that can teleport himself) could be. Considering how unusual the premise is that was a tricky thing to accomplish. This new international poster, on the other hand, doesn’t even try [...]



Jumper Poster

I actually still don’t know exactly what Jumper is about. I know there was a trailer, but I never got around to watching that. And every time I read something about the movie I tend to space out as I get to the plot description. But thanks to this poster I know have an inkling [...]



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 [...]



Final Southland Tales Poster

Could it be true? A final poster for Southland Tales? Does this mean the movie will actually get released this time? Impressive. Ok, now that I’m over the shock, let me take a look at the poster. Well, there is certainly a lot going on in there, isn’t it? We have the faces of many [...]



Killers From Space and Wild Women Of Wongo Posters

As you people might or might not already know, three of the guys from Mystery Science Theater 3000, Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, have reunited in order to do some MST3000 style commentary tracks of bad movies. The call themselves The Film Crew and recently they have tackled the somewhat cult classic Killers [...]
