Check Out These Stylized Character Posters for DC's 'Suicide Squad'

Suicide Squad

Time to get acquainted with the Suicide Squad. David Ayer has released a new poster and WB has followed up with a full set of 10 character posters for DC's Suicide Squad movie. This artwork features stylized versions of each costume from the squad, and it even includes some of the bad guys and surprise characters we'll see in this movie. Ayer has also indicated that a new trailer for Suicide Squad will debut on Tuesday later this week. I really dig the designs for this, the comic book connection is clear and it really shows how much fun they're having with this movie. We'll follow up once the trailer premieres - until then, take a look.

The Jungle Book

Oh it's the bear necessities, the simple bear necessities… Disney has completed a tryptich series of posters to unveil a wide promo banner for The Jungle Book, a CG/live-action hybrid directed by Jon Favreau. The poster shows Mowgli, played by Neel Sethi, in the middle sitting in front of Baloo the bear, voiced by Bill Murray. The poster also includes most of his animal friends, like Bagheera, Kaa, Raksha and a ferocious Shere Khan, voiced by Idris Elba. The more we see of this movie, the more interested I am, it remarkably looks pretty dang good so far. Hopefully we'll see more footage soon. Take a look at the full poster below.

Poster + TV Spot for Coen Brothers' 'Hail, Caesar!' Arriving February

Hail, Caesar! TV Spot

"Uncovering Hollywood's biggest secret, will take Hollywood's biggest actors." Universal has debuted a new TV spot for the upcoming Coen Brothers film Hail, Caesar!, starring George Clooney as actor Baird Whitlock. This adds to the first TV spot and first trailer for the film, setting up a plot involving Whitlock getting kidnapped. The cast includes Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand and Jonah Hill. In addition to the TV spot, a new poster appeared online and although it looks official, it may just be fan-made, though we've added it below anyway since it looks so cool. I'm glad we're seeing even more marketing arriving for this film, since the release is coming up soon.

Check Out These Three Fan-Made Posters for Nolan's 'Dunkirk' Film

Dunkirk Poster

In Nolan We Trust! It has been just over 24 hours since Warner Bros officially announced details about Christopher Nolan's next film, a WWII-set action-thriller titled Dunkirk, to be filmed in 65mm. The news arrived with an announcement from the Mayor of Dunkirk, France discussing a major movie production shooting there in May/June next year. Loyal Nolan fans are already so excited they've whipped up the first three fan-made posters for a project we know hardly anything about. These posters are all designed around the Dunkirk evacuation in 1940, known as Operation Dynamo, referencing events and imagery from WWII. They're still very cool to see, and I love that fans are so excited by the film already that they've made this art.

IMAX Drops an Awesome Poster + Teaser for the 'Deadpool' Movie

Deadpool

Size matters. At least when it comes to Deadpool's team. IMAX has unveiled this awesome new poster for the upcoming Deadpool movie, starring Ryan Reynolds as the fourth-wall-breakin' Merc with a Mouth. The marketing for this movie has been absolutely brilliant, fully embracing the mock-everything attitude of Deadpool himself. This IMAX poster (and a short new trailer below) continues to follow that trend by going overboard on absurdity and mockery, and it's perfect. I can't think of any other movie or character that this poster would work for, and it's crazy they actually approved this. Makes me look forward to this even more.

Check Out These Badass New Posters for Paul Feig's 'Ghostbusters'

Ghostbusters

Who You Gonna Call?! Sony has unveiled four new teaser posters for Paul Feig's Ghostbusters, which is starting to look like it might actually be pretty damn good. The posters feature the four new Ghostbusters each with a different "weapon", including proton packs for most of them. It stars: Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan, Melissa McCarthy as Abby Yates, and Kristen Wiig as Erin Gilbert. I really love the look of these posters, I'm so glad they're being bold and fully embracing the badassness of this movie, with the black background and colorful highlights they really stand out. I dig it. The goggles are a nice touch with McKinnon, but where's Wiig's weapon? Hopefully we'll see a trailer soon.

Three New Character Posters for 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

There's only three more months to go until the release of Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Warner Bros is sticking firm with the March 2016 release date, and has issued three new character posters for the three major heroes: Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. I'm sure we'll see a few more superheroes in the movie (The Flash? Aquaman?) but these are the biggest sellers and the main guys in this battle. Ben Affleck plays Batman, Henry Cavill plays Superman, and Gal Gadot plays Wonder Woman. The most recent trailer seemed to be very divisive and upsetting to some, but that may be part of their plan with a series of DC movies in the works. For now, I'm still looking forward to seeing how this one turns out.

First Teaser Poster for Animated 'Kubo and the Two Strings' Movie

Kubo and the Two Strings

I've got a good feeling about this one. We have yet to see a trailer, though hopefully there may be one soon enough. Focus Features is releasing Laika's next new stop-motion animated feature Kubo and the Two Strings next August, and they've premiered this eye-catching official poster. The film is described as a "gripping yarn woven from Japanese folktales and mythology, with lost civilizations, mystical origami, noble heroes, star-crossed lovers, and blood-curdling monsters." It features the voices of Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara, Matthew McConaughey, Ralph Fiennes, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, George Takei, with Art Parkinson as Kubo. This is some beautiful art that shows quite a bit of promise, and I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Vintage 'The Force Awakens' Posters Are Connecting Past & Present

The Force Awakens

Just let it in! We're down to the last few weeks. Over the weekend, Lucasfilm debuted three new posters for Star Wars: The Force Awakens that contain nothing but text. They are actually a specific throwback to the very same poster design utilized during the release of Star Wars: A New Hope on May 25th, 1977. For reference, we've included photos of the original posters at the bottom. We've seen so much imagery, so many attempts at Drew Struzan art, that it's sometimes refreshing to see marketing that is based purely on our imagination. That's what Star Wars is all about, capitalizing on our boundless imaginations and the joys that come with believing in The Force. It's exciting to be around here for yet another big Star Wars release.

New Poster for Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' with One Month Left

The Hateful Eight

"No one comes up here without a damn good reason." It's time to count down the days until Tarantino's latest! There's only one month left until The Hateful Eight hits theaters on Christmas Day, December 25th, next month. The Weinstein Company has released a new poster for Quentin Tarantino's new snowy 70mm western, and it only shows the backs of all the characters. Their faces are lined up in boxes at the bottom and thank goodness the names above actually line up with the images below. I'm anxiously awaiting the chance to see this, and I hope it lives up to the hype. All of the footage we've seen in trailers and the buzz going around so far seems promising. See the latest trailer here and check out the new poster in full below.

First Photo + Poster for Jeff Nichols' Delayed Sci-Fi 'Midnight Special'

Midnight Special

He's not like us. What does it all mean? Earlier this week Entertainment Weekly debuted the first official photo from the film Midnight Special, the family-friend science fiction movie from writer/director Jeff Nichols (of Take Shelter, Mud and Shotgun Stories). This is the film that was pushed back after Warner Bros wanted to tweak it a bit, and now it's getting ready for release March next year. The first photo shows the boy's mother & father, played by Michael Shannon & Kirsten Dunst, with Alton, played by Jaeden Lieberher, as well as Joel Edgerton. The poster gives us a better hint at what's to come, but still vague.

'Star Wars' Mania - New Posters to Peruse for 'The Force Awakens'

Star Wars

"The Force, it's calling to you. Just let it in." The countdown is on, with weeks left until Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives in theaters everywhere. Star Wars Mania is kicking in full force, and one of the perks is that we get to see a lot of great artwork for the new movie (and the old ones, too). Like these three new posters below that we're featuring - two made by fans, one an actual official IMAX poster. It's going to be hard not to reveal too much or spoil anything from the movie of the next few weeks - but rest assured these posters don't spoil a thing. I've got tickets for Thursday night lined up, now we must just wait it out.

First Character Poster Set for Alex Proyas' Epic 'Gods of Egypt' Movie

Gods of Egypt

Meet the Gods of Egypt! Summit Entertainment has unveiled a set of character posters for Alex Proyas' next movie, title Gods of Egypt, an adventure epic about a common thief who joins a mythical god on a quest through Egypt. The posters feature: Gerard Butler as Set, God of the Desert; Brenton Thwaites as Bek, Thief of Legend; Chadwick Boseman as Thoth, God of Wisdom; Elodie Yung as Hathor, Goddess of Love; and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Horus, God of the Sky. There's a few others missing from the cast list, but I'm sure more will be revealed eventually. These are such gloriously epic, colorful, eye-catching posters that we can probably expect the same spectacle whenever the footage is unveiled in the first trailer.
