Denzel Washington Hits the Road on First Poster for 'The Equalizer'

The Equalizer

So far only a single first look photo from this fall's action thriller The Equalizer, based on the 80's CBS series of the same name, has surfaced, but there's already a sequel in development at Columbia Pictures due to reportedly overwhelmingly positive focus group tests. Now it sounds like the first trailer might be just around the corner as the first poster for the film starring Denzel Washington has arrived. Relying only on Washington's name and silhouette, the studio seems to be counting on a lot of people recognizing the title. At the very least, the poster is stylish, and we're glad it's just not Washington looking intimidating. Look!

First Poster for Paul Haggis' Drama 'Third Person' Blows in the Wind

Third Person

Following yesterday's international trailer for the Toronto Film Festival selected Third Person, the first poster for the film's release in the United States has arrived, but the film doesn't yet have a date to hit theaters. If you look hard enough, you can see Liam Neeson in the background, and we're not sure why he's being given top billing since the film follows him along with Adrien Brody and James Franco, with all of their stories in Paris Rome and New York (respectively) intersecting somehow. The dress blowing away like paper is a nice touch, but after yesterday's trailer, we're not all that excited to see the film itself.

First Golden Teaser Poster for Horror Reboot 'Leprechaun: Origins'

Leprechaun: Origins

"A horror icon is reborn." That might be a little too liberal use of the word "icon." Yes, there's been plenty of Leprechaun films in the past, but they've all been B-movie level horror movies (some even worse), many never even hitting the big screen and going straight-to-DVD. But the tiny little bastard is making a comeback with Leprechaun: Origins, and now Lionsgate and WWE Films have released the golden teaser poster for the horror reboot starring wrestler Dylan "Hornswoggle" Postl in the role originated by Warwick Davis. This likely means the first trailer is also coming sometime soon, so stay tuned. Look below!

'8 1/2's' Guido Graces the 67th Cannes Film Festival's Golden Poster

Cannes Film Festival

Introducing the official poster for the 67th Cannes Film Festival. This year's poster art features Guido in his sunglasses from Federico Fellini's classic film awash in gold and adorned with Cannes text and logos. It's an outstanding poster for one of the best film festivals in the entire world, and we're excited to debut this just ahead of the official line-up later this week. "The way he looks at us above his black glasses draws us right in to a promise of global cinematographic happiness," explains the poster's designer. "The happiness of experiencing the Festival de Cannes together." Indeed. There's nothing like this film festival.

King of Monsters Goes Black and White on a New Poster for 'Godzilla'


Along with some cool official posters and some stellar artwork from talented fans, we've seen quite a bit of the new version of Godzilla, the classic monster who has terrorized the world for decades. But now we get a different look at the King of Monsters in a cool new black and white poster. It's not quite as cool as that fanmade seismograph poster (which you can buy right here), but it's still something to see for any fan of Godzilla. If anything, it calls back to the original inception of the giant lizard since he debuted when black and white was a standard in motion pictures. A new black and white Godzilla would actually be fun. Look!

Check Out the Official Posters for Deep Sea Diving Thriller 'Pioneer'


When your ultimate adventure becomes your ultimate nightmare. If you're into deep sea diving conspiracy thrillers, then we've got the perfect film for you. Titled Pioneer, this Norwegian thriller is about a team of divers who were part of risky experiments at the start of the Norwegian oil-drilling industry in the early 80s. The cast includes Aksel Hennie plus Wes Bentley, Stephen Lang, Jonathan LaPaglia, Stephanie Sigman and Jørgen Langhelle. The film already premiered in Europe last year and has been waiting for a US release, however io9 has debuted a new US poster and we thought it was worth sharing to bring some attention to this interesting little film. I'm intrigued by all the imagery, but I'm not sure if it'll be any good.

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Teaser Posters Show Off the Weapons

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

While the teaser trailer for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles wasn't entirely disappointing, the casting of Johnny Knoxvile as Leonardo has left some of us utterly perplexed. But there's no stopping the franchise reboot from producer Michael Bay and director Jonathan Liebesman as the film gets closer to hitting theaters later this summer. Now we have four new teaser posters, each showcasing the signature weapons of our four heroes in a half-shell. We didn't see a lot of the turtles in the aforementioned teaser trailer, so we're not surprised that they are fully shown in these posters, but we would still like to see more.

IMAX Debuts Exclusive 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Mondo Fanfix Poster

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Though it feels like the blockbuster summer might have started early with the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier last weekend, we've still got a month before the big movie season is in full swing. The first film to really dig into theaters this summer will be The Amazing Spider-Man 2, starring Andrew Garfield and plenty of bad guys. And after the last trailer showed off plenty of impressive action and swinging around the city, IMAX has debuted a slick new Fanfix poster that people can only get ahold of by attending the first IMAX showing of the anticipated comic book sequel at 7pm on May 1st. Poster below!

Huge Batch of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Posters Are Pretty Stylish

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Following yesterday's batch of feaurettes from the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past, a whole batch of photos have surfaced online today. However, since they were discovered by a forum user at Superhero Hype, we're not exactly sure if these are official posters, or just unused concepts, mostly because some of them seem incomplete without studio logos, a release date, etc. Some of them are really stylish, while others are pretty bland. The prominence of Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique is interesting though. Is Warner Bros. just capitalizing on her Hunger Games popularity, or is she just as prominent as Hugh Jackman? Look!

Mondo Unveils Stellar Poster for 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Another Marvel movie is upon us with the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier on screens across the United Sates just hours away. That means it's also time for a Mondo poster commemorating the latest film in Marvel's cinematic universe. This time it's Rich Kelly who was commissioned to design a poster for the patriotic superhero from another time, and he did an amazing job. It has hints of the retro 70s style poster for the sequel that popped up online not too long ago but with a contemporary edge. If these posters weren't so hard to get ahold of, I would definitely like to frame it on my wall. See the poster below!

New 'Maleficent' Banner Shows Off the Kingdom & More Creatures


Taking a cue from the annoyingly similar banners for Oz: The Great and Powerful and Alice in Wonderland, Disney has decided to deliver a banner poster for Maleficent that shows off more than just Angelina Jolie and her horns. Like the aforementioned Disney marketing pieces, this banner shows off a lot of the kingdom, including some creatures we've yet to see in the trailers. In addition to the banner, a French poster has also surfaced that basically takes the same image and puts it in a more narrow frame, but adds the three colorful fairies into the mix. Plus there's Elle Fanning as Sleeping Beauty too. Check out both posters!

'The Expendables 3' Character Posters Are Silly Portraits from Sears

The Expendables 3

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier arriving this week, it feels like the blockbuster summer season is starting early. But May is really when the tentpoles come into full swing. However, one of the big action flicks of the year won't arrive until later in the summer, and that is The Expendables 3. There's some sort of new "Roll Call" video or trailer arriving tomorrow, but in the meantime, we have a huge pile of character posters that have arrived featuring the enormous action ensemble cast. The bad news is they all look like yearbook portraits that their mother made them get while they were shopping at Sears. See posters below!

See the First TV Spot + New Poster for 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes TV Spot

"That's their advantage... that's what makes 'em stronger." Whoa. Chilling new TV spot for Matt Reeves' Dawn of the Planet of the Apes sequel that originally aired during "The Walking Dead" on AMC last night. The 30-second spot has now hit the web via YouTube, and to compliment the footage we've included a new poster debuted by our friends at Collider from CinemaCon. We saw footage at CinemaCon as well and can only reiterate the same - this movie looks amazing. And this little tease of new footage continues to hint at the setup to this sequel and the two sides of the war we'll see battling in this. One of our most anticipated.
