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 World War Z, The Brass Teapot and the first one for 2 Guns. Also today, guest and fellow blogger of good taste Bubbawheat from Flights, Tights and Movie Nights is back with me and 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).

TheFocusedFilmographer– This week, nothing really stands out as AMAZING, but I do like a couple of features. (1) The Kings of Summer poster: the kid jumping through the “O”; (2) The Oblivion IMAX poster is pretty and shows Tom Cruise as being alone; (3) The Brass Teapot is artsy and I like it and its use of colors, although it’s not one I would hang in my house with them staring at me. (Just a so-so week for me with the posters…nothing ultra-impressive) Oh, I do like how Brad Pitt looks a little bit broken on his knees in the poster for World War Z.
I think I’m a little more impressed with this batch than you. I quite enjoyed the artsyness of the Brass Teapot without feeling the little creepy vibe of it. On the other side of things, I think The Purge has just the right amount of creepy with that mask and how it doesn’t quite sit flush on the guy’s face. And between the other posters for Oblivion, I think this one is by far the best. As for the worst one, I gotta go with the low hanging fruit of Smurfs 2, it just looks like a Sherwin Williams ad.
Well, what do YOU think? Which ones are your favorites in this spotlight? Which ones do you like/hate and why? Leave a comment! 🙂
