Check Out The Nifty Poster for '21 Years' Doc on Richard Linklater

Richard Linklater

Eighteen Films. One legend. Gravitas Ventures has revealed poster art for their upcoming documentary 21 Years: Richard Linklater, telling the story of Linklater's filmmaker career so far. Co-directed by Michael Dunaway and Tara Wood, the doc features (some of these guys are seen on the poster) Zac Efron, Matthew McConaughey, Ethan Hawke, Billy Bob Thornton, Jack Black, Kevin Smith, Parker Posey and many others. It's already set to premiere in theaters and VOD starting this November, so there's not too much longer of a wait for this one. I'm looking forward to delving deeper into Linklater's fascinating and invigorating career.

'The Imitation Game' with Benedict Cumberbatch Gets a Familiar Poster

The Imitation Game

We've previously pointed out the overwhelming trend of movie posters almost always looking the same nowadays, with little to no artistic effort put into promoting the film on a poster. One such trend that we've seen recently on posters for Thor and The Social Network is the use of overlaying text on top of the image of one of the stars of the film (you can see even more of them here too). And now it's Benedict Cumberbatch and his awards season hopeful performance in The Imitation Game that gets the familiar poster treatment. It's not the best effort, but we just want you to see this film that our own Alex Billington saw at Tellurdie and called an "exceptionally compelling film led by remarkable performances." Look now!

'Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb' Gets an M.C. Escher Poster

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

The teaser trailer for this winter's sequel Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb arrived this past summer, and now 20th Century Fox has unveiled a new poster for the film starring Ben Stiller. It's certainly one of the better posters we've seen for the franchise as it takes the ensemble cast that includes Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, Rami Malek and more, and puts them into an M.C. Escher style image with staircases that don't seem to end. Yes, Robin Williams is in the poster too (this is one of his final performances) and you can even spot a tiny Steve Coogan and Owen Wilson if you scan carefully. Look!

Does This New IMAX Poster for Nolan's 'Interstellar' Show Too Much?

Interstellar

We've seen not one, not two, but three official new posters for Christopher Nolan's fall release Interstellar, and it's starting to be a little too much. In fact, despite the fact that the first poster that debuted this week showed Matthew McConaughey on another world (which we've seen glimpsed in the most recent trailer), we think this last poster might just be overkill. We already know the space crew goes to another world, but this one shows them on a planet full of water. Or maybe it shows them on Earth after they've returned and the world is flooded. It won't ruin the movie, but does it give a little too much mystery away? Here's hoping this IMAX poster is the last one before the film gets released later this fall. Look now!

Teaser Poster for 'Insidious: Chapter 3' Will Make You Scared of Vents

Insidious: Chapter 3

Production began on Insidious: Chapter 3 earlier this year, complete with a first look photo giving us a glimpse at the film that actually predates the first two films in the horror franchise from Blumhouse Productions. It's writer Leigh Whannel stepping up to direct this time with a story he hatched with previous franchise director James Wan, and now a teaser poster has popped up hinting at the terror that awaits. It's enough to make you consider checking your vents before bed. We're curious to see what haunted this family before the events we've already seen unfold from the mysterious place called The Further. Look!

'Interstellar' Gets New Poster + Solar System Creation & Travel Game

Interstellar

Just after two new posters for Christopher Nolan's space travel drama Interstellar debuted, one more gorgeous one is here, this one with a bit more hope and inspiration in the tagline "Go further." And now, if you just can't wait to see Matthew McConaughey trek across space in November, you can do some space exploration of your own. Along with the new poster, Paramount Pictures unveiled a new game app that allows you to create your own solar system and also travel through other player-created systems in the ship Endurance from the movie. There's even real science applications with how you use gravity and fuel. Look!

Matthew McConaughey Gazes at the Cosmos on 'Interstellar' Poster

Interstellar

Following the recent poster for Christopher Nolan's promising sci-fi drama Interstellar that shows Matthew McConaughey on another planet glimpsed in the powerful trailer from not too long ago, another poster has popped up. This one features McConaughey standing alongside Mackenzie Foy, who plays his daughter in the film as their farmhouse, staring up at the starry sky. Forget the fact that it seems to be dusk on Earth and the sky wouldn't look like that, it's still a great contrast of imagery for a poster. We're wondering if the debut of these posters means there's another trailer on the horizon before November. Look!

Matthew McConaughey on Another World in New 'Interstellar' Poster

Interstellar

Following yesterday's awesome Poster Posse collection from Blurppy for this fall's release of Interstellar from director Christopher Nolan, an official poster from Paramount Pictures has debuted online. This one is a little more conventional as it merely shows Matthew McConaughey on another world, which we've seen glimpsed in the most recent trailer for the film as well. Some think that the most recent trailer showed too much, but considering it's all out of context and a Nolan movie has never been spoiled by trailers, it shouldn't be anything to worry about. Could we get one more trailer before the release? We'll see.

Check Out This Massive 'The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies' Banner

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

When the first teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies debuted at Comic-Con this summer, the entire room of Hall H was covered in a massive screen that became filled with a huge banner made up of several different scenes from the concluding chapter of Peter Jackson's trilogy adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic book. Now that banner has made its away online, and it's absolutely gorgeous. It shows Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans) facing off with Smaug, Gandalf (Ian McKellen) having some kind of dramatic encounter with Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) and of course Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins.

International 'Gone Girl' Poster Compliments Amy Dunne's Pinterest

Gone Girl

D'apr├Ęs le Best-Seller! We're getting closer and closer to the October release of David Fincher's latest film, adapted from Gillian Flynn's novel of the same name which it seems that everyone is reading nowadays. Gone Girl has already been marketed with trailers and TV spots and posters, but we have even more to add into the mix. An international poster from France has appeared putting Amy Dunne's character (played by Rosamund Pike) front and center, with Ben Affleck's Nick Dunne behind her. Meanwhile, a new Pinterest page for Amy's character has appeared, which is the best movie marketing use of that site so far. See below.

Keanu Reeves is About to Explode on a Teaser Poster for 'John Wick'

John Wick

We've already gotten one look at Keanu Reeves in the forthcoming action thriller John Wick, and this Friday the first trailer will debut. In the meantime, we have the first teaser poster that takes the titular character, an ex-hitman on an adrenaline-fueled path to revenge, and his namesake very literally. There's actually a wick leading to the head of Keanu Reeves, implying that he might explode. From another perspective, he also looks like some kind of firework balloon. We're not sure what to expect from this flick, but it will debut at Fantastic Fest later this month, so stay tuned to see if we like it or not. Look below now!

Jennifer Lawrence on Fire in New 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay' Poster

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I

After turning her back on The Capitol in the most recent teaser poster for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I, this time we get to see Jennifer Lawrence in all her rebellion glory on the fiery poster for the first chapter in the two-part finale. She's all decked out in rebel gear, armed with her trusty bow and arrow, and situated perfectly in front of the Mockingjay wings she's helped spread as more and more of the districts turn on President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and his tyrannical ways. A new trailer for the film will arrive in just five days, and we've included a tease of that below for those who can't wait.

Andrew Niccol's Drone Pilot Drama 'Good Kill' Gets a Bold Red Poster

Good Kill

Plenty of films have enjoyed premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival this month, from Kevin Smith's messed up horror thriller Tusk to Jason Reitman's poignant Men, Women & Children. Some promising films like Noah Baumbach's While We're Young and Anna Kendrick's musical The Last 5 Years have already been picked up from the fest too. And now we have a bit of hype for another film that debuted at TIFF a few days ago, Andrew Niccol's timely drama Good Kill, which examines the current state of war through the eyes of a drone-pilot. That pilot also just happens to be played by Niccol's Gattaca star Ethan Hawke and we have a teaser poster straight from TIFF, though it doesn't feature the actor. Look!
