Happy Friday! 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 lot of new posters including a new one for The Place Beyond the Pines, a high-flying one for Disney’s Planes and another promised-filled poster for Room 237. Also today, guest and fellow blogger of good taste Bubbawheat from Flights, Tights and Movie Nights joins me in sharing thoughts/opinions of this week’s poster offerings. Thanks to him for joining me today. Be sure to visit his fun site full of expertise on comic and superhero movies (HERE).

In addition to the feature posters above, Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming film Pacific Rim released a few character posters this week. Take a look:
TheFocusedFilmographer– Too many this week to choose from. There were several that didn’t make the final cut for this post, including several multiple posters for White House Down (see all HERE), The Wolverine (see all HERE), World War Z (see all HERE) and more. I rather enjoy the one for The Place Beyond the Pines, Ender’s Game, and the White House Down posters. Into the Void is rather unique. Did you notice how the tree in The Conjuring poster looks like a hand actually conjuring someone or something?…Creepy! (see the shadow in the bottom righthand)
Bubbawheat– Wow, you’re right about there being too many to choose from. I honestly don’t think I would have given The Conjuring more than a casual glance, but since you got me looking closer at it, I realize it’s a really well designed poster with a lot of touches you don’t notice right away. I also like the pop of color in the Errors of the Human Body poster. I’m not entirely sold on the White House Down posters, if I didn’t already know what it was about, I’m not sure the posters really tell me all that much. Fill the Void is an interesting concept, having the white void of the wedding dress, but the problem is that there is a still a giant void in the poster.
The ones I didn’t like much was Hammer of the Gods, is that an Asylum movie? Because that’s what the poster looks like. And that is a really weak pose for Wolverine, and the background really doesn’t sell the fact that he’s in Japan. Thanks for having me on!
Well, what do YOU think? Which ones are your favorites in this spotlight? Which ones do you like/hate and why? Leave a comment! 🙂
