First Look: Promo Posters for 'Three Stooges', 'Battleship', 'Avengers'
It's time to take a gigantic look into the future, as the 2011 Licensing International Expo is underway in Las Vegas. This convention focuses on selling licenses/brands and cross-promotion, which takes time to integrate. Hence, studios must come and advertise years out - up into 2013. This year, there's an assortment of new posters and banners that contain never-before-seen logos and imagery for a lot of upcoming movies in 2012 and 2013. ComingSoon (again) has the best galleries, but there were a few movies in particular I wanted to highlight - including Battleship, The Three Stooges, Rise of the Guardians + 47 Ronin.
Click on any of the images below to be taken over to the full gallery on ComingSoon, as they have photos of everything. There's a lot that isn't even worth showing. These below, however, I thought were worth seeing.
And finally, the big sales banner for Marvel's The Avengers that's been floating around (via SlashFilm):
Yea, that artwork for The Avengers is pretty damn cool, but it's just early artwork, I want to see something official and I expect we'll get that at Comic-Con this July. I also included those two DreamWorks Animation movies Rise of the Guardians and The Croods because we've never seen what the characters look like for either yet, so this is our first look at those. Chris Pine, Hugh Jackman and Alec Baldwin provide voices for Rise of the Guardians, about mythical holiday heroes. The Croods includes the voices of Ryan Reynolds and Emma Stone as two cave-people. Finally, The Three Stooges looks bad, but it's obviously getting a big push. The new stooges: Will Sasso as Curly, Sean Hayes as Larry, and Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe.
