As you’re probably aware at this point, I’m a big fan of movie posters.
There’s something about distilling the entire intent of a film into a single image (or series of images) that I find really interesting.
Anywho, I’ve had quite a few poster er…posts piled up over the past few days, so I figured what the hell, let’s get them all out in one post.
First up, we have these really nice character posters of Jude Law as Watson and Robert Downey Jr. as the titular character from Sherlock Holmes.
Up next…the absolutely stunning, retro styled European poster for Quentin Tarantino’s forthcoming Nazi killin’ flick Inglorious Basterds.
Now, as a counterpoint, we go from a seriously stylish, downright amazing poster (seriously, if the movie holds up, I may need to get a copy of it)…to the super bland and boring one-sheet for Rob Zombie’s remake sequel (a phrase I never want to say again) Halloween II.
And last, and…yeah, probably least…here’s the latest batch of character posters from GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Fire and particle effects for all!
Bleh. Seriously, when works of art like the Inglorious Basterds poster are getting tossed out, why aren’t more posters trying to be as stylish? It’s a shame.
