Domestic ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy’ poster and featurette

Posted by · 9:11 am · September 8th, 2011

So it looks like the visual plan for “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” is keeping it similar to the international look, judging by the domestic poster that hit the net yesterday. I think the first is a little more refined, but I still dig it. Check out the full image, plus a new featurette for the […]

‘The Rum Diary’ poster

Posted by · 4:48 pm · September 7th, 2011

First off, apologies for the misinformation regarding “The Rum Diary” potentially being at Telluride. (Scott Burns was right!) It really did look that way for a minute, but anyway, a poster for the film has been released, and it’s delicious. *hiccup* I’m very much looking forward to this one. Check out the full image after […]

‘Young Adult’ teaser poster

Posted by · 9:55 am · September 6th, 2011

Jason Reitman was a sadly absent from this year’s Telluride fest. His last two films, “Juno” and “Up in the Air,” both landed there as an early Sneak Preview before heading to Toronto and awards glory. But the strategy on “Young Adult” has been to stay away from peaking too early. But it’s smart to […]

‘Killer Joe’ poster

Posted by · 10:50 pm · September 1st, 2011

I was hoping to get William Friedkin’s “Killer Joe” here at Telluride, but Guy will have a chance to see it in Venice if he sees fit. I’m very much looking forward to it for some reason, and I dig the poster that hit the net today. Check out the full (grossly watermarked courtesy of […]

‘The Ides of March’ poster

Posted by · 7:55 am · August 30th, 2011

Some weeks back we posted the intriguing banner-style poster for George Clooney’s “The Ides of March.” I’ve been waiting on a typical one-sheet to make its way here and now, it has, fit with a dry tagline and more of that double imagery, given the placement of Clooney and Ryan Gosling’s heads. The film is […]

‘The Artist’ poster

Posted by · 9:54 am · August 24th, 2011

I recall our learned friend Anne Thompson responding with scepticism when I mentioned over a Cannes lunch that I expected Michel Hazanavicius’s “The Artist” to be a major player in this year’s Oscar race. Looks like Anne has come round to the idea over the summer, as she — together with Steve Pond and David […]

‘The Lady’ poster

Posted by · 2:25 pm · August 23rd, 2011

Luc Besson’s “The Lady” doesn’t have domestic distribution in place yet, but the wheels are already turning as a teaser trailer dropped at Yahoo! Movies today. Meanwhile, a Shepard Fairey-designed poster based on the artist’s own piece celebrating Burmese revolutionary Aung San Suu Kyi has also hit. This film could certainly be an awards play […]

‘Coriolanus’ poster

Posted by · 3:10 pm · August 17th, 2011

Another day, another poster. Interesting that they’re selling this one less as The Ralph Fiennes Show (he is Coriolanus, after all) and more as a two-hander. It’s worth playing up Gerard Butler’s contribution — his performance here is a career highlight — but I maintain my broken-record position that Vanessa Redgrave is the real story here. […]

New ‘Drive’ posters

Posted by · 5:20 am · August 16th, 2011

Or, as a “Top Chef” contestant might title this post, “Drive” Four Ways. The US teaser poster for Nicolas Winding Refn’s Cannes winner unveiled a couple of weeks ago — the one that handily doubles as the cover for Ryan Gosling’s upcoming workout DVD — met a mixed reception. Some liked the kitsch, star-centered romanticism […]

‘Contagion’ character posters

Posted by · 3:57 am · August 10th, 2011

I’ve successfully dodged the trailer — and swiftly ducked out of any online discussion — for Steven Soderbergh’s “Contagion,” to I can honestly say that I haven’t the faintest idea what it’s about, and plan to stay cheerfully ignorant until the lights go down at its Venice press screening in a few weeks’ time. Fortunately, […]

‘Drive’ poster

Posted by · 9:22 am · August 2nd, 2011

So, this little movie called “Drive” hits US theaters in just over six weeks, and you may have gathered by now that I kind of like it. After a spiffy trailer debuted last week, a fresh poster was due, and Film District have obliged with a one-sheet that makes no bones about how they’re pitching […]

‘The Ides of March’ banner poster

Posted by · 9:02 am · July 28th, 2011

Hitting the internet simultaneously with that well-received trailer yesterday was this unusual poster for George Clooney’s Venice curtain-raiser “The Ides of March.” It’s always nice to see designers attempting something a little more conceptual than the norm — indeed, the simple split-face gimmick here could almost be taken as an ironic rebuttal to floating-head convention. […]

‘Moneyball’ poster

Posted by · 11:35 am · July 24th, 2011

I’m still in a bit of wait-and-see mode on “Moneyball.” It could be an awards play, it could just be a bit of bankability in the fall movie season, but I do dig the one-sheet that hit the net this week. The trailer hit last month. Check out the full poster after the jump.

‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy’ poster

Posted by · 4:25 am · July 19th, 2011

Yes, another poster — but it’s a good one, and for a film many of us are awaiting rather eagerly, so hopefully you’ll let it slide. The teaser trailer for Tomas Alfredson’s adaptation of John le Carré’s classic spy novel (previously, and very successfully, filmed for television with Alec Guinness in 1979) debuted to a […]

‘Tyrannosaur’ poster

Posted by · 4:06 pm · July 18th, 2011

I’ve just come from a screening of “Tyrannosaur,” Paddy Considine’s feature directing debut that made something of a splash at Sundance in January, winning awards for Considine and stars Olivia Colman and Peter Mullan. I’ll discuss the film in more detail soon, but I’m happy to report that the early festival hype is thoroughly justified […]

‘50/50’ poster

Posted by · 11:46 am · July 12th, 2011

One comedy that could light up the awards circuit later this year is Jonathan Levine’s “50/50.” I noted some potential awards prospects when the trailer hit two months ago (and I think we can add Anna Kendrick to the list of possibilities, too). Today, courtesy of /Film, we get a look at the poster for […]

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ teaser poster

Posted by · 9:52 pm · July 11th, 2011

Nailed it. This is a fantastic image. It kind of recalls the poster for “Batman Begins” with the Caped Crusader dropping from above, it carries in the urban nature of “The Dark Knight” and gives the overall vibe that all hell is gonna break loose. Check out the full teaser poster for “The Dark Knight […]

‘Tabloid’ poster

Posted by · 9:55 am · June 15th, 2011

Last week the trailer for Sundance Selects’ “Tabloid,” one of Errol Morris’s best films in some time, hit the net. The poster has also been floating around, so I thought I’d toss that up as well. Have a look at the full image after the jump.
