Case Study: Pixar's Wall-E Posters
Not that anyone should actually sit down and write a report on these, but I'm writing about them because they're the best damn posters I've seen all year - and they're for a movie that doesn't even come out this year! The latest poster for Pixar's next film Wall-E, due out next summer, comes courtesy of Upcoming Pixar. The first one arrived in September, and was already one of my favorites. Now that there are two posters out, I can easily say that these are two of the best teaser posters ever.
I'm guessing part of this has to do with the character Wall-E to begin with. The lil' bugger is just so god damned cute! And the fact that they're capitalizing on that is what makes these so great. If you've seen the trailer then you know how Wall-E acts, and they've managed to capture that personality and emotion perfectly in the design. I'm a sci-fi fanatic to begin with, on top of being a huge Pixar fan, and you combine those two with some incredibly well designed teaser posters and now I'm praising these like they're the best things since sliced bread, but fortunately that's true. Without any further delay, here they are.
Now if only I could get my hands on a few copies of these, maybe give away a couple to some readers. I have a feeling Wall-E may end up being my favorite Pixar movie in a long, long time. At least that's how I feel right now, but we've still got to see a real trailer and hear more of the story.
