The Brave One Poster

June 27th, 2007 at 10:20 pm » Comments (0)

Via thehotblog (and many other places) we have the new poster for Neil Jordan’s The Brave One, starring the one an only Jodie Foster. That team right there is enough to get me excited about this movie. I like the poster, but don’t love it. The image of Jodie Foster looking distraught and holding a [...]



Two New The Bourne Ultimatum Posters

June 17th, 2007 at 1:58 pm » Comments (1)

IMPAwards has a couple of new The Bourne Ultimatum posters. These are a lot darker than what we have seen so far for this movie or for the last two movies in the series. And I don’t just mean the lighting and the use of black and white. The expression and the tag lines also [...]



Mr. Brooks Poster

The message of the poster is “behind this dull facade there are many secrets.” Not only does it deliver this message clearly, it does so with a very memorable image. And it manages to showcase the star to boot. I love the surrealistic feel of the poster. Kevin Costner taking a piece of his face [...]



First American Gangster Posters

Nice posters. Very classy. Very stylish. Very dark. The choice of cutting the stars’ head in half is a little odd, but you can still tell who those people are, so I guess it’s okay. However, I do think that the Denzel Washington one has a little too much black and not enough white. The [...]



Invasion Teaser Poster

Now that is a teaser poster. Doesn’t really show anything, but still conveys a sense of pervasive and immediate danger. And it gets you curious. A job well done. (source)



Rise: Blood Hunter Poster

When I first heard about this vampire movie with Lucy Liu I was immediately worried. Something about it just sounded bad. But I kept my hopes up and decided to wait for the promotional material, expecting that it would do away with my worries. Well, this poster is definitely not doing the trick. A good [...]



The Invisible

Using the rain to portray invisibility isn’t the most original visual idea out there. But it can work and look cool. I don’t think this poster is the best rendition of the concept, but it is a good enough one. My main problem with the poster tough is that it is very generic. It tells [...]



Vacancy Poster

I like the look of this poster. It’s a pretty straightforward interpretation of the title, but it looks good and is scary enough. I think the whole beaten up motel look has become tightly associated in our brains with “bad things” due to countless horror movies, and that help the poster be more effective in [...]



Fracture

This is a typical poster for a thriller. Dark, two floating heads, white and red letters. All very, very common for this type of film. This second poster is a little different, and it caused some problems. Some people in Boston, including anti domestic violence groups, were upset with the poster and called for it [...]



Slow Burn Poster

This is sort of a cool poster, practically just the flame with only a bit of the silhouette of the main players showing on the edges. But, the whole poster is just a little too dark for my taste. All the text outside the title is hard to read. A little brighter please. My other [...]
