Safe Poster

August 15th, 2011 at 11:29 am » Comments (2)

Considering this together with the poster for Contagion that was released a while ago we can already see the cool new trend: Posters with a weathered look that are mostly taken by the title, displayed vertically. Hott. Honestly, I like both posters, probably because I’m just a sucker for a weathered, beaten down look (remember [...]



The Raven Comic Con Poster

July 21st, 2011 at 1:07 pm » Comments (1)

And talking about sure bets, here is a Comic Con poster for The Raven. Edgar Alan Poe + Comic Con = Awesome, right? Well, as it turns out, not for me. The image is not ugly, but it just hits no emotional notes for me. My own expectations might also be getting on the way [...]



Sherlock Holmes Poster

This photo (I’ll update with a better picture when it comes out) of the teaser poster for Sherlock Holmes has me quite surprised. This is not how I expected Sherlock to look. There is a certain edge, a certain darkness I don’t generally imagine the character having. Then again maybe I just didn’t read the [...]

Thanks to Philip for pointing this out.



It’s Happening in Mexico

June 9th, 2008 at 11:39 pm » Comments (6)

I’m starting to think that the people behind the marketing for The Happening want me to think about I Am Legend. As you might remember I Am Legend had several posters depicting cities around the world destroyed by the implacable virus. Pretty nice posters if you ask me. Well, know we have three posters for [...]



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 [...]

The Facts in the Case of Mr. Hollow Poster (Big)

I don’t normally feature posters for short films. Not that I have anything against them, I just don’t generally stumble across posters for shorts. But thanks to twitch that changed today, and so I bring you the poster for the The Facts in the Case of Mr. Hollow.[...]



The Happening Poster

December 7th, 2007 at 8:29 pm » Comments (4)

I think that the most telling aspect of this poster is the text: “We’ve sensed, We’ve seen the signs, Now… It’s Happening.” In case you didn’t get it (I didn’t the first time) the text is a not too veiled reference to Sixth Sense and Signs, the two most commercially successful movies from director M. [...]



P2 Poster

I don’t understand the choice to use this kind of drawing on the poster. The style of the artwork reminds me of the cover of cheap pulp mystery novels and of the box art of second rate computer games. Not flattering comparisons, I think. A very weird choice. (Via IMPAwards)



New The Invasion Poster

August 5th, 2007 at 12:38 pm » Comments (9)

Well, this is certainly much better than the last Invasion poster. At least it isn’t ugly and it does manages to transmits some sense of danger, both with Nicole Kidman’s expression and with what looks a lot like a zombie horde in the background, partially covered by the light. Still, it isn’t an awe inspiring [...]
