New Posters of the Week (1/5/13)

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

Here are your first poster offerings of 2013. I look forward to the posters that will be showing up this year. (Did you vote for the BEST posters of 2012 HERE?)

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!

Today we have a few new posters including one of 3 new posters for The Host, a new one for The Last Exorcism part 2 (I thought the last one was the “LAST” one.), along with a new one for Carrie. 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 Carrie, Running from Crazy and John Dies At The End.

The teaser poster for Snowpiercer is nothing but a plotline and a list of names, however, it serves its purpose in teasing us to be interested. Check out an article from WIRED that shares a little bit more insight into what to look forward to from the film, including concept art and a bit of the soundtrack. Click HERE

  1. Boy, more than a few that are exercises in minimalism, aren’t there? Not a lot to go on except the titles… Snowpiercer is an odd title. Just going to have to wait for the trailer to see, I guess.

    The poster for The Last Exorcism Part 2 looks exactly as dumb as a poster for something called The Last Exorcism Part 2 ought to.


  2. I agree that though SNOWPIERCER is just type, it piques my interest…i don’t like cold so it already seems scary, plus the names include several actors I like, Chris Evans, Octavia Spencer, etc. From a marketing standpoint, JOHN DIES AT THE END is the least effective because it’s fairly illegible, but design-wise it is the coolest. Maybe it’s memorable enough that the images will become the brand though, no legible type needed. Thanks for this, T! One of my favorite regular features 🙂


  3. The fact that the Snowpiercer poster is an ad, it originally made me think it said “ad #2031” instead of “A.D. 2031”. I think I pretty much agree with your take. Love the John Dies at the End poster and the Carrie poster. Running From Crazy looks pretty, but it’s hard to connect it with the title.


      • If I had more time, i’d love to collect and over-analyze all the new movie posters of the week. For now, I just have to pick and choose whenever I pop over here. Always love checking them out, kudos for collecting the new ones each week.


  4. That Running from Crazy one is beautiful! I can’t believe I left out Welcome To The Punch from my anticipated list. I LOVE McAvoy, Strong AND David Morissey!


  5. Hi, Terrence and company:

    Interesting posters.

    I prefer “TEOTWAKI: Zombie Apocalypse II” to “Snowpiercer”. Two words that should never be together.

    The poster for “Running from Crazy” reminds me a lot of the old poster for “The Gods Must Be Crazy”.

    Only recognize one name in the cast for “Knife Fight”.

    The “Parker” poster looks cool. As does Mark Strong in “Punch”.


  6. The Last Exorcism 2 one is kinda cool. Though, bit disappointed there’s a second. Really enjoyed the first and the final scene sort of lent itself to it being a one film thing! Think Cabin in the Woods! Ah well.
