Happy Saturday! 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. As usual 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.)
TheFocusedFilmographer– A fun mix of posters this week. A few things I’d like to point out before naming my favorites. I found myself at first annoyed at Riddick‘s poster, but then started to like it as it does highlight the one guy whose trademark is seeing in the dark. It works. I also like the cloud “wings” behind Katniss in the Catching Fire poster. The subtleties of this week’s posters have my attention. However, some seem rather lazy…like About Time whose poster does nothing to implicate the title or the plot. Despicable Me 2 promises some of the same villain/minion action as the first and thus is in my list of faves of the week. Along with the second Man of Steel (him flying straight up) poster (I’m actually not a fan of the other one), The Last Passenger and I, Frankenstein (just because it maybe reminds me of Underworld. haha).
Bubbawheat– I gotta disagree with you on the I, Frankenstein poster, it looks like a rehash of the Star Trek Into Darkness and several other similar posters with a lone figure inside a silhouette cutout. I haven’t seen any of the Riddick movies, but that poster makes him look pretty bada$$. I agree that several of them look pretty lazy, I’m not getting excited about Turbo at all, and what’s with that weird look on Bonham-Carter’s face in the Lone Ranger poster? I’m not fond of the Man of Steel poster with the bright spot, but really love the one with him flying straight up. Finally, this is the first I’ve seen about Rapturepalooza, and while that name is horrible, I’m a little curious about what looks like some deal with the devil movie that can sometimes be fun.
Well, what do YOU think? Which ones are your favorites in this spotlight? Which ones do you like/hate and why? Leave a comment! 🙂
