A Tale Of 2 Iron Man Posters

Today Paramount unveiled the final Iron Man theatrical posters for both the US and International markets.  The part that’s bizarre is that they’re both very similar, yet have slight differences.

Here’s the US Poster First…

Then you have the international version…

Now, while both suffer from floating head syndrome, I overall find that the US poster has a far better layout.  What’s bizarre is why they chose the different layouts, and why certain elements aren’t in both…why does the US version have no helicopters? Why are the bodies more noticeable in the international version?  What does that say about our cultures?

Which do you like? Personally, I dig the design of the US one more, and look forward to it being a DVD cover.

Tick Tock…

Man, this blog is becoming more about comic movies than I anticipated. However, I’m sure we can all agree that this is a worthy post.

We’re officially one year away from the release of the movie adaptation of what is arguably the greatest graphic novel of all time, Watchmen.  To commemorate this, the director of the flick, Zach Synder, best known for the amazing 300, decided to post the first promotional images of the characters.  To put it simply (and to key a phrase from my good buddy Jami), the pants, they are crunchy.

L to R: Jeffrey Dean Morgan as the Comedian, Patrick Wilson as Nite-Owl II, Matthew Goode as Ozymandias, Jackie Earle Haley as Rorschach, and Malin Akerman as Silk Spectre II.

After nearly 20 years of development hell, Watchmen is due to hit theaters on March 6, 2009.

Aw, Who’s A Widdle Explorer?

Japanese Toy Company Kotobukiya will be releasing a set of Indiana Jones Gashapon this June, and /film‘s got the first images.

Origins Continues To Underwhelm!

Hey! We finally have another pic from X-Men Origins:Wolverine!

It’s of Liev Schriber as Sabertooth…and…it’s underwhelming.

I’ll hold off until we see an official promo photo to make judgement, but right now…meh.  Here’s hoping some of the other characters have a more accurate and/or visually appealing look, versus the kinda-bland-barely-recognize-them style seen here.
