New Posters of the Week (9/20/13)
As you know I love checking out and collecting movie posters! With teases of what to expect from the featured film, posters are one of my favorite parts of the whole cinematic experience. If you love movie posters like I do, then you are likely to enjoy the latest ones of the week!
It’s that time again, and, as usual my friend, Bubbawheat (from Flights, Tights and Movie Nights) and I both share our thoughts on the movie posters recently released. These silent movie promoters are the results of the creative brainstorming of some talented (most of them) artists and sometimes can be even more thrilling than the movie they are advertising. Take a look at this week’s batch: (To view the fullscreen slideshow, click on any one of the posters below and scroll through with the arrow keys.)
A broad spectrum of posters descend upon us this week! ha. So many differing styles it is a rather pleasure mixture and i don’t know where to really start. Let me at least say that I thought the Ender’s Game poster was a movie about bees at first glance! That poster for Labor Day is chilling. Not only for Kate Winslet’s face and predicament (which is unknown), but also look again…who’s silhouette is in the window? I have no idea what this film is really about, but now I want to!
Nebraska is a smart poster. The outline of a man who finally feels like a somebody…somebody who is more than just a shadow after “winning” a million-dollar sweepstakes. Watch the trailer and you’ll understand more. It is very fitting. The phrase “Inspired by true events” always raises an eyebrow or two, but the poster for Skinwalker Ranch grabs my attention. I don’t know why, but I like it. The Last Days on Mars is one of my favorites this week and I really like how cool the poster for Frozen is. Shout out to the Thor posters for getting Sif a character poster! Woohoo. and I have absolutely no idea about Charlie Countryman, but the list of actors is impressive and the artwork notwithstanding.
Just some all around good posters this week for me.
My faves of the week: Enemy, The Last Days on Mars, Labor Day and Skinwalker Ranch.
I gotta disagree with you about the Frozen poster, while I’m looking forward to the movie, I’m disappointed that all the marketing so far is based around the annoying looking snowman comic relief rather than the female leads. I also think that The Last Days on Mars feels too similar to all the recent Gravity marketing. And Nebraska I wasn’t really a fan of until I watched the trailer, I’m still not totally sold on the poster, but I am much more curious about the movie.
Aside from those, there’s a lot of great posters this week. Skywalker Ranch, excuse me Skinwalker Ranch looks really creepy and stylish. Grand Piano is very classy and artistic, and so is Spinning Plates. There’s some great girl power with Thor‘s Sif poster looking very Wonder Woman-ish. The colors and absurd looking image in A Touch of Sin gives me absolutely no clue as to what the movie is about, but it makes me want to know, the same with the Run With Me Ricky poster. I also really like the interesting choices in the I Will Follow You Into the Dark poster with the Yin Yang style faces, their eyes closed, and the smoky shadowy figures in the lower right. Lots of stuff to talk about, love it.
My faves of the week: Run With Me Ricky, I Will Follow You Into the Dark and Charlie Countryman.
