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.)
TheFocusedFilmographer– An interesting mix this week and there are some that are rather impressive. While I have no idea what I’ll Follow You Down is about, I rather like the poster. The Oldboy remake’s poster makes anyone who doesn’t know the story scratch their head wondering what it is about (accomplishing its purpose). Captain America: The Winter Soldier is both vague and telling at the same time. And something about both Open Grave and As I Lay Dying just grabs my attention. They both do look bleak and deal with the end of life. Pacific Rim special edition is pretty SWEET. Loving the color of Frozen. I think I like too many this week. hahaha.
Bubbawheat-I agree, there’s a lot of interesting posters this week. Oldboy is really weird, it reminds me of a Nine Inch Nails music video. I’m very curious about Seventh Son. I haven’t heard anything about the movie, though I wonder if it’s about the seventh son of a seventh son. The battered Captain America shield looks great, though I was joking on Twitter about the fact that Vibranium apparently isn’t scratch resistant.
That Pacific Rim poster is totally sweet! I also like the style of the extremely simple Transcendence and I’ll Follow You Down, it’s also nice to see Haley Joel Osment’s name attached to a movie again. I also think Billy Club is an interesting and somewhat different take on a horror poster with a pose and angle not seen too often. I also like the Breaking Girls poster, at least the one with the single girl rather than the photo collage.
Well, what do YOU think? Which ones are your favorites in this spotlight? Which ones do you like/hate and why? Leave a comment! 🙂
Special thanks to Bubbawheat of Flights, Tights and Movie Nights for joining me today in sharing the New Posters of the Week.
