New Posters of the Week (1/25/13)

January 25, 2013

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

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 three new character posters for Oz: The Great & Powerful, a couple of promo posters for Keanu Reeves’ 47 Ronin, and a new one for Stand Up Guys. 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 47 Ronin, the IMAX poster for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, and Upside Down.

    The Trance posters remind me a lot of Hitchcock. But when exactly is 47 Ronin actually coming out? That’s another movie that’s been stuck in developmental-hell for the longest time.

      man, who knows when 47 Ronin is really releasing. You’re right, it’s been so back-n-forth for a while now. I guess that’s 1 strategy to get people interested…not that effective though.

    The posters for Oz are awful – why would they airbrush such beauties? :/

      Sati, thank you for stopping by my little corner of the world. I love posters and don’t really mind the style of the Oz ones, however, you are right, they are such beauties in and of themselves. I’m more frustrated with the trend of every movie seemingly having to produce multiple character posters along with feature posters.

    What the hell is 47 Ronin?

      Hey Tim, sorry for the delayed response. Long weekend.

      47 Ronin is a story of revenge based in, I think, the 1700s or 1800s with Keanu leading a crew of Samurai against those that killed their master or something like that. It has been stuck in production limbo and release date pushbacks for upwards of at least 18months.

        Keanu Reeves? Not sure about that.

        I hear you on the busy front 😀

    Mixed bag for me this week. Love the red 47, but don’t like Keanu Reeves’s look in the other 47 poster. Love Upside Down, first I’ve heard of that movie and sounds like a neat premise. Also really like the Oz character posters, I so want to see that movie.

    On the other side, Stand Up Guys just plain looks wrong. Olympus Has Fallen feels like it’s been done before, same with Dead Drop. Also, while I kind of like the style of the Warm Bodies poster, the 2 instead of too felt out of place.

      You know what? I completely agree on the Warm Bodies use of the “2.” and while I like the red “47” I couldn’t stand the Keanu Reeves’ poster. We agree quite a bit this week.

      If you like the poster for Upside Down and want to know more about it, be sure to check out my other post all about it and my review (if you wish) HERE.
