New Posters of the Week (3/29/13)

March 29, 2013

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:

Thoughts:

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! 🙂

Have a great day!

    I’m really looking forward to Spring Breakers and also The Internship. I loved Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson in The Wedding Crashers so I am hoping it is on the same comedy level 🙂

      Hi Jenny, thanks for stopping in. That Spring Breakers poster was a last minute add-on as it published online shortly before posting today’s spotlight…and I like it. It’s different from the neon-colored loud posters that we’ve seen already. I liked Wedding Crashers too and hope The Internship is okay, but I have a feeling it will only be so-so.

      thank you for checking out the posters and commenting! Please come again

    Hi, Terrence:

    The poster for ‘Ender’s Game’ looks interesting. So does the one for Pixar’s ‘Planes’. Though the green plane is a WWII P-40 Warhawk. Which could dive and strafe like crazy, but wasn’t very fast. The orange and white is an Ag-Cat Agricultural Crop Duster. Made to fly low and slow. White the white and red is a 1930s British Gee Bee (Great Britain) Racer and really should be in the lead.

    But hey, it’s Hollywood and Pixar.

    Also like the collage type poster for ‘Arthur Newman’.

      Technically, it’s not Pixar. Disney’s in-house animation took the property and is doing the spin-off of Pixar’s Cars. It’s a bit of a weird technicality since they’re both Disney now. Looking forward to it since I talked to one of the storyboard artists for my own site, Robb Pratt. The Arthur Newman is a pretty good version of the collage poster which I generally dislike.

      I would have never looked at all the detail of the different planes had it not been for this comment. I love it. Thanks for sharing the knowledge! 🙂

      I really like that one myself. It’s different than the loudness of the other ones.

    I have no idea why Safety Last is in there, but I love it. 😀

    Bubba’s right about the Hammer of the Gods poster making it look like an Asylum knock-off… my first thought was “knockoff of Clash of the Titans. Calling it now: it’s a stinker.

    Fill the Void has too much void in its poster. But I like the minimalist poster for The Place Beyond the Pines. Funny how white space can be interesting in one place and not the other.

    Ender’s Game has a pretty good, if standard, sci-fi poster. Hope the movie’s good. Hope they have the sense to stay away from the sequels.

    I like the poster for The Conjuring except for the loathsome “based on the true cases…” bit. Hate that. Hate it, hate it, hate it.

    The poster for Errors of the Human Body is OK, not great, but the title is interesting.

      i know what you mean about the “based on the true cases” tagline of The Conjuring. horror movies love to use that line. bleah.

      Thanks for chiming in on the posters. I know what you guys mean about Hammer of the Gods, but I don’t mind it. I think it’s still kinda cool. 🙂
