New Posters of the Week (11/21)

November 21, 2012

It is time once again to check out all of the…

You know that 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!

Today we have tons of new posters including a new poster for Evil Dead, This is 40 and Jack the Giant Slayer. Here we go.

Take a look: (To view the fullscreen slideshow, click on any one of the posters below and scroll through with the arrow keys.

Well, what do you think? Which ones are your favorites in this spotlight? I personally like the posters for The Baytown Outlaws, The Girl and Only God Forgives.

That poster for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is almost an exact ripoff from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Just sayin.

What do you think? Leave a comment! 🙂

    Totally agree with you. Baytown Outlaws looks like it could be a poster for Baywatch (in a good way), and I get the feeling that’s what they’re going for. Only God Forgives is such a stark image that tells me nothing about the movie, but makes me curious about it nonetheless. If there wasn’t the similarity to Harry Potter, the City of Bones poster looks pretty great too. And even though having a person turn into pieces of something else, it almost always looks great like it does with the Girl. I also like the This is 40 poster, especially because I so much enjoy the tagline “sort-of sequel”, I also think the out of focus foreground was a bold choice that works in this context.

    As for the bad, I don’t care for the penis gun trying its best to hide Johnny Knoxville, or the Playing for Keeps photo panels, and even for just a title poster, Jack the Giant Slayer is pretty boring. Oh, and Tina Fey’s eyes are looking too far to the side in Admission, it makes her look very offputting. Overall, not a bad batch this week.

      oops, “even though having a person turn into pieces of something else” has been done many times, “it almost always looks great like it does with The Girl.”

        Sorry for the delayed response my friend. I always look forward to your thoughts on Posters of the Week. One quick note, I actually like the “sort of sequel” tagline for This is 40 myself.

        I thought a little bit about Shutter Island when I saw The Girl, but, like you, I still liked the poster quite a bit! Thanks for checking out the posters.

    Even though its a tall promise, that poster for Evil Dead is awesome.

    Also that poster for Admission is terrible. The trailer that was recently released looks far more promising.

      haha. I’ve been hearing mixed responses to the Evil Dead one.

      So…you didn’t like “Drive” then, right? 😉

      I am curious to see what it will be like. Thanks for commenting

    Bit of an uninspiring bunch. Only God forgives is ok, Baytown Outlaws is pretty cool and as excited as I am for the Evil Dead remake, the poster is a bit meh!
