New Posters of the Week (7/5/13)

July 5, 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!

It’s that time again, and, 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.)

Thoughts:

TheFocusedFilmographer– A smaller amount of posters this week, and several of them are international versions and I like them! Some things of note this week: First off, I rather liked the use of the sunglasses in The Way Way Back that gives something more to look at than just a character mid-poster. Have no idea what the iridescent coloring of the JOBS poster is for…but I’m not a big fan. Byzantium‘s bold colors have always grabbed my attention. And I applaud The Wizard of Oz for maintaining the original look and feel of the poster amid its remastering for theaters.

Nothing about the Diana poster is good to me, but The BoxTrolls and Frozen are both delightful.

My faves of the week: Frozen, Rush and The BoxTrolls.TFF

Bubbawheat-I think overall there’s a lot more good than bad this week, even with the smaller overall turnout. One thing I’m usually not a fan of is the big group poster. It’s usually photoshopped and looks awful. But I think both of the two this week work. Both The Best Man Holiday and Thanks For Sharing have a cast that looks like they are genuinely having a good time. Those smiles look real, not fake. That’s also one of the better Wolverine posters that I’ve seen, I like the more unusual placement of both his claws and the sword.  And The Box Trolls just looks amazingly whimsical and fantastic.

As for the ones that aren’t so good, Riddick just looks fairly generic, and I don’t know what they were thinking with that color scheme on Jobs, though I did watch the trailer and Kutcher is very surprising as to how good he can be in a serious role. I’m also not a fan of Rush, it’s obviously some type of Indy car racing movie, but I’m not sure why the two actors have such weird looks on their faces.

My faves of the week: The Wolverine, The Box Trolls and The Best Man Holiday.

    The Box Trolls poster is very well done. Byzantium‘s poster also looks good. The Jobs poster is eye-catching, so I guess it’s doing it’s job (so to speak), but I can’t say as I like it much or get the connection between psychedelic coloration and Steve Jobs.

    That poster for Frozen is fantastic. That’s a lot closer to the “feel” I was hoping for with the movie than that teaser trailer.

      LOL. Jobs doing it’s job.

      I am sad that Byzantium isn’t playing anywhere near me at the moment. It may or may not end up being a good movie, but I still want to see it and I like the posters. Thanks for chiming in, Morgan.

      I am intrigued by the Boxtrolls one. That film just came out of nowhere for me with the trailer last week, and now this fun poster! Thanks for commenting.

    I’m loving both FROZEN and BOXTROLLS 🙂 THE WAY WAY BACK also has had some gorgeous posters recently, but I’m afraid they came a bit too late. They should release posters before the premiere not after 😦

      did you like all the character posters for The Wolverine? I must admit that I only liked the character poster for Wolverine himself and not so much for the others.

    Hmm, all so-so to me. Nothing really stands out at all. Jobs feels like it’s trying too hard!

    I’m a tough person to please when it comes to film posters, I think.

      🙂 well, hopefully the next batch may have some that surprise you. Posters have been kinda routine lately.
