Cannes Croisette Promo Banners for Gulliver's Travels & More

In addition to all of the films playing in the Cannes Film Festival every year, Hollywood makes a show at the festival as well with big snazzy promotional banners displayed on hotel fronts up and down the Croisette (the main street in the town). Like last year, I took a quick trip up the street to snap some photos of any new, exciting banners I could find, but ultimately there weren't too many great banners. In addition to the Kane & Lynch display we featured earlier, I found some banners for Jack Black's new Gulliver's Travels comedy as well as The Last Airbender, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and a few more.
I snapped that photo of the banner for The Other Woman because I didn't remember hearing much about it, but it turns out it's that "psychological thriller" project that Eli Roth is producing. That promo banner has a smashed photo frame, which also kind of reminds me of Paranormal Activity. Additionally, those last two posters are just for fun as well, including Spider 3D (which looks freakin' crazy awesome even though I am scared out of mind of spiders in real life) and Elephant White just because I'm a fan of Djimon Hounsou and I've never heard of that movie before today either (but it's directed by the guy who directed Ong Bak).

these all pretty much suck...not the picture quality, just the banners are really bland.

i agree with Xerxex, all are lame, especially the last two.

When displaying banners in that manner, they should make them tastefully blend into their surroundings while simultaneously catching the eye and promoting the film. None of these do that. Instead they look like they belong in a children's restaurant.

The Other Woman looks pretty interesting, love the tagline! Banner is dope reminds me of those Asian Horror movies where people's faces have been erased or scrached out.
