Wolfman Poster

Okay, okay, I know that no one wants to talk about The Wolfman anymore given that it's not the greatest movie and it only made $36 million over the weekend at the box office (at least it's in third place). However, I just came across this today (via IMPAwards) and it's too incredible for me to pass up. I consider myself a connoisseur of the best movie posters, and this poster here is easily one of my all-time favorites. I love the minimalistic design of it and everything else is just brilliant. No need to show any actors or the werewolf itself or anything but a bit of blood and some spooky trees. This is some impressive design work - check it!

Japanese Wolfman Poster

Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman, is lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Upon his return and after being reunited with his estranged father, Talbot is bitten and cursed by a werewolf.

The Wolfman is directed by best visual effects Oscar winner Joe Johnston, of Honey I Shrunk the Kids, The Rocketeer, Jumanji, October Sky, Jurassic Park III, and Hidalgo previously. The screenplay was co-written by Andrew Kevin Walker (Se7en, 8MM, Sleepy Hollow) and David Self (The Haunting, Thirteen Days, Road to Perdition). Universal will be bringing The Wolfman to theaters on February 12th in just under a month.

    Minimalistic? Really? Perhaps for a movie poster...it still has fully rendered objects and text...Yeah it isnt floating heads necessarily but "minimalistic"...no

    #3 - Yea man, I totally love this poster, just amazing! #4 - I guess I am thinking more simplistic. Kind of like Saul Bass-style even, just minimal use of trees and blood to convey everything, simple or whatever. You know what I'm thinking, right?

  • Cineprog
    The Japanese symbols and the patch of Blood looks great, and the Dullness of the grain of the poster gives it that earie look.

    i'll take one please. I wish someone would say something positive about Wolfman, b/c I lost all desire to see it after horrible reviews.

    This tells me nothing. It could be a poster about any movie and I'd never know it was The Wolfman.
