I’m Just Saying

Land of the Lost: Two posters featuring a running Wil Farrell and a dinosaur. The Hangover: Several “Apatow Style” posters featuring the character’s upper body against a solid background. Land of the Lost: About $35 million at the box-office after two weekends. A drop of more than 50% in the second weekend. The Hangover: More [...]

Ending With a Whimper, Not a Bang

January 29th, 2009 at 9:12 pm » Comments (0)

The Watchmen poster campaign has mostly kept a coherent visual style and used well the fascinating characters. This poster gets all of those characters together and keeps the same visual style, so I guess I can’t complain about it too much. Still, it’s sort of a dull ending for a campaign that had a great [...]



Comic Books Are Fun

IGN released a few days ago this very entertaining list written by Jay Hainsworth of what they deem to be The Top 25 Comic Book Movie Posters. Some of the longtime readers might notice that many posters from this old post make an appearance. Which probably tells you more about the scarcity of great comic [...]



The Spirit Final Poster

November 18th, 2008 at 9:14 pm » Comments (0)

And so one of the more interesting poster campaigns of this year is coming to a close. Honestly, although I still think it’s quite a good campaign, it peaked too soon. That teaser poster was everything I wanted the posters for this film to be: sharp, strong and with a clear and unique visual style. [...]



In Honor Of Yet Another Good Opening

October 27th, 2008 at 9:23 pm » Comments (1)

So, SAW V (five!) took about $30 million dollars in its opening weekend. I’m sure this series is running out of steam, but I’m, as of right now, retiring from the business of predicting that the SAW marketing has lost its power. I wonder what the poster for SAW 33 will be like. I mean, [...]



To the Winners the Posters

July 2nd, 2008 at 12:08 pm » Comments (1)

I probably should have posted this Sunday, but better late then never. First, I wanted to highlight this retro posters for Wall-E, that were pointed out to me by reader Pristine a while ago and which I pretty much love. Unfortunately they are kind of expensive. And in celebration of Wanted’s surprisingly strong second place [...]



All the Boys Love Funny Games

June 25th, 2008 at 11:27 pm » Comments (1)

This one is interesting to me. The similarities are quite obvious, and have been pointed out elsewhere. Perhaps the fact the the Funny Games poster was one of the most striking posters of late makes things more obvious, but still. Then again, the differences are quite huge. And among them is the much calmer expression, [...]



Tyrannosaurus Rex Poster

It seems nobody knows for sure what the hell Tyrannosaurus Rex is about. But it is, much to my disappointment, apparently not about an actual T-Rex. I’m already less interested. Then again maybe this is a ploy? Show the crazy bikers first, get people thinking this is something kinda like The Devil’s reject, and when [...]



Sweeney Todd Poster

July 29th, 2007 at 8:38 pm » Comments (12)

When it comes to anything related to Tim Burton’s work we can generally expect something dark and a bit weird, but also with a strange sense of humor to it. This poster for Sweeney Todd mostly lacks any humor at all. But otherwise it fits. It’s very dark, not only in it’s color but also [...]
