Michael Clayton Poster

August 15th, 2007 at 8:06 pm » Comments (5)

Oh, I really like this poster. Such a distinctive image, it immediately stands out. And the use of this tagline together with the out of focus image of George Clooney is very, very clever, and it give us a good feel for what the film is going to be like and the general themes it [...]

Eastern Promises Poster

(click for a large version) You know, I understand the urge to add the image strip towards the bottom of the poster with the faces of Viggo Mortensen and Naomi Watts. After all, if you are paying good money for two somewhat known actors you might as well plaster their faces all over the marketing [...]

The Kingdom Poster

(click for a larger version) I mostly agree with Chris form Movie Marketing Madness on this one. The poster clearly places The Kingdom as an action film centered around Jamie Foxx, with Jennifer Garner as a secondary draw. Conversely it downplays the more political aspects of the movie and the rest of the cast. I [...]

New The Invasion Poster

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 [...]

Gone Baby Gone Poster

July 19th, 2007 at 11:06 pm » Comments (1)

There are two main elements to this poster. The first is the city, represented by the skyline. I’m guessing that people how know Boston will find it easily recognizable, but I don’t know Boston so I could very well be wrong. Still, it gives us a good feeling of the place where the movie takes [...]

Death Sentence ComiCon Poster

July 18th, 2007 at 10:49 am » Comments (2)

Via WorstPreviews we have a ComicCon exclusive poster for Death Sentence. And it is indeed better than the original Death Sentence poster. At least in this one we get a better sense of the main character. The fact that he is under great stress and that he is having some very violent encounters is quite [...]

Jaws Poster

July 16th, 2007 at 9:03 pm » Comments (1)

Things are a little slow in the new posters front today, so instead of commenting on a poster I don’t have much interest in, I decided to revisit one of my all time favorites. What I find funny about this poster is that Jaws, the movie, is famous for hiding the shark throughout most of [...]

Death Sentence Poster

July 13th, 2007 at 11:01 pm » Comments (5)

(click for a larger version) Have I mentioned that I dislike these types of posters where some huge text takes most of the space? I guess I have. Well, this one is no different. Posters are really better at showing than at telling. Sure, a well placed tagline can do wonders, but those mostly work [...]

The Invasion Poster

I don’t really like this poster. It does manages to remind people that the film stars Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman. And I do like how Craig’s blue eyes stand out and the general expression on Kidman’s face. But overall the poster fails to make the movie look more interesting. I guess the intent here [...]

Another Bourne Ultimatum Poster

June 29th, 2007 at 7:10 pm » Comments (0)

Via Cinematical we have the brand new poster for The Bourne Ultimatum. Honestly, this poster feels like a bit of a retread. It’s basically the same Bourne walking around with a gun poster we got from the first and second movie, but now in a blue tone. I much prefer the earlier posters for Ultimatum, [...]
