New Posters of the Week (5/10/13)

May 10, 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!

A fun batch of pretty good looking posters this week. This time around my friend, Bubbawheat (from Flights, Tights and Movie Nights) and I both share our thoughts on the movie posters recently released. These silent movie promoters are the results of the creative brainstorming of some talented (most of them) artists and sometimes can be even more thrilling than the movie they are advertising.

Take a look at this week’s batch: (To view the fullscreen slideshow, click on any one of the posters below and scroll through with the arrow keys.)

Thoughts:

TheFocusedFilmographer– I missed publishing a “New Poster” post last week and couldn’t wait for this week’s installment. There are several that I like! From the simplicity yet complexity of Epic to the blurry speediness of Man of Steel to the awesome Rorschach blend of Caroline and Jackie, this week offers quite a bit to enjoy. The more I look at Aftershock, the more it impresses me. But my favorites this week are Gravity, Star Trek Into Darkness and Pacific Rim. I’m a little disappointed with the poster for Captain Phillips after the great trailer (see yesterday’s post), but I do happen to like The Purge as well.

Bubbawheat– Even though the poster’s just ok, this is the first of me hearing about the new Coen Brother’s movie. Justin Timberlake, John Goodman, and a cat’s eye acoustic guitar? Color me interested. I thought Caroline and Jackie looked pretty cool at first glance, but then I decided that it just looks kind of weird. Epic is a great new poster, though I’m not that fond of this Man of Steel poster, I think it’s a combination of the look on his face and I think it’s a little too speed blurred. I’m with you on Aftershock, there’s so much little subtleties to it that makes it pretty awesome. And while I have no high hopes for the movie, I think the concept for Grown Ups 2 poster is genius. Gravity is definitely the stand out for the best though, it’s just a beautiful image.

Great stuff again this week and as always, thanks for letting me be a part of it!

Well, what do YOU think? Which ones are your favorites in this spotlight? Which ones do you like/hate and why? Leave a comment! 🙂

    LOL. Is that “Captain Phillips” poster a joke? I mean… that’s like a “Generic” label or something. 😀 Is it supposed to look like a boat, is that it? Its awful… LOL

    As much as it pains me to say it, that Grown Ups 2 poster is a fairly decent idea…

    I agree with Fogs about the Captain Phillips poster. I’m excited about Inside Llewyn Davis.

      Inside Llewyn Davis is grabbing some attention. I’m not too sold on it yet. something about it just doesnt click for me. Perhaps that’ll change. ARe you a Coen Bros fan?

      thanks for the comment.

        I liked True Grit, but I’m not a big big Coen fan. I very much did not like No Country For Old Men.

    Gravity and Epic are my favorite two from this post.

    Is that the Enterprise giving chase to the Enterprise? Now that would be epic. Reminds me of when the Defiant showed up and dwarfed the original Enterprise AND the space station it was docked at.

    I like all 3 of the newer Superman posters that have come out the last few days more than this one.
