The Legend of God’s Gun Poster

March 17th, 2008 at 12:54 pm » Comments (0)

I was going to put this poster in the weekly round-up, but I decided it deserved a post of it’s own, even if I don’t have anything particularly insightful to say about it. I think it will come as a non-surprise to all that small movies have a hard time getting noticed. There are hundreds [...]

Sukiyaki Western Django Poster

These posters for the Japanese genre bender Sukiyaki Western Django are similar to the poster for OneChanbara: They both are for Japanese movies and they both fail to show a bikini clad cowgirl using a samurai sword to slash zombies. Oh, why must you mock me this way Japan? I’m starting to think I’ll never get my cowgirl slashing zombies poster.[...]

This poster, for Takashi Miike Sukiyaki Western: Django, turned out to be a little controversial in Japan, which led to it being substituted by the poster below. Twitch explains why.

3:10 to Yuma managed to take the first place in the box office this weekend. For some reason this made me curious about the original 3:10 to Yuma and I decided to seek out an image from the poster for that film. I was very happy to find the one above and the one below [...]

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford Poster

I have heard the title “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” many, many times over the last year. And yet, somehow I didn’t realize who Jesse James was and never bothered to look up what the film was about. Still, I felt this was a strong and memorable title, even tough [...]

Final 3:10 to Yuma Poster

(click for a larger version) Well, here is the final poster for 3:10 to Yuma. As some of you might recall I really loved the first teaser poster, and didn’t much like the second. The final one is kind of in the middle for me. It showcases Russel Crowe and Christian Bale well, and manges [...]

New 3:10 to Yuma Poster

(click for a larger version) I really loved the last 3:10 to Yuma poster. This one not so much. It’s a lot less rich and much closer to a typical looking image. It also gives a lot of space to the title, which really isn’t that interesting. And the guy at the center of the [...]

3:10 to Yuma Poster

(click for a large version) Now this is something different. The new 3:10 to Yuma poster is quite beautiful, and remarkable in several aspects. The first being that it doesn’t show the faces of the two top actors, something that is unusual considering that both Christian Bale and Russel Crowe are so well known. It’s [...]
