Lakeview Terrace Poster

July 28th, 2008 at 10:56 pm » Comments (2)

Ok, I think the idea behind this poster is pretty clear. We have Sam Jackson as a cop, looking very menacing. That look is contrasted with the background which shows a quiet suburb at sundown. What we are supposed to get is that beneath the seemly peacefulness of the surroundings is Jackson’s character, ready to [...]

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 [...]

Blindness Poster

April 9th, 2008 at 2:50 am » Comments (4)

Blindness’ story revolves around an epidemic of blindness that spreads quickly bringing society to a state of chaos. This first teaser poster for the movie focuses squarely on the sight loss aspect, giving little attention to the epidemic/chaos angle. We have the letters for the title arranged in a form reminiscent of an eye chart. [...]

First X-Files 2 Poster

April 1st, 2008 at 1:34 am » Comments (4)

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, [...]

Pathology Poster

It’s got a cool blue tinge, so it must be a poster for a creepy horror movie. Honestly, the most interesting thing about this poster is the “From the Creators of CRANK” bit (they wrote the movie, by the way). Now, I didn’t actually like CRANK all that much, but it had enough bright moments [...]

Bangkok Dangerous Poster

February 12th, 2008 at 10:01 pm » Comments (6)

Here we have the poster for Bangkok Dangerous in which we see Nicolas Cage giant head towering over what one imagines is Bangkok. Our man Nic looks distraught, he obviously is carrying a lot on his shoulders and that is taking its toll. Now, let’s go back a few months. Here we have Nicolas Cage [...]

Another Funny Games Poster

February 4th, 2008 at 11:45 pm » Comments (5)

For such low key movie (from a marketing push and budget perspective) Funny Games sure has had a lot of posters. Three might not seem like much, but this is the type of film that I would expect to normally have just one US poster. And what is more interesting, the third poster is very [...]

The Life Before Her Eyes Poster

January 22nd, 2008 at 6:00 pm » Comments (7)

Update2: New poster is here. Update: I was asked to take down this poster. I’m not sure what happened. Perhaps they sent out the wrong version? Perhaps it shouldn’t have been released yet? Anyway, this is a rare enough occurrence that I’m happy to oblige the marketing team. I’ll update as soon as a new [...]

The Bank Job Movie Poster

January 15th, 2008 at 11:08 pm » Comments (3)

(click for a large version) This poster for The Bank Job really goes for an old fashioned 70′s look. But unlike some recent posters, like the ones for Grindhouse, which took some conventions from older posters but added a definitely modern twist, this one really seems to be interested in looking authentic. It even has [...]
