After an IMAX poster for the sequel/reboot Transformers: Age of Extinction arrived earlier this month, another new poster keeps the new marketing aesthetic alive. In this one, we're still on the farm, but Mark Wahlberg and his daughter Nicola Peltz are running from the new enemy that has emerged on Earth at a time when the Transformers are being hunted down, having been banished from the planet and disavowed by the government that once trusted them to protect us. These posters are much better than the Photoshopped floating heads and other lame designs, so maybe there's hope for a fresh sequel too. Look!
For fans of the somewhat obscure horror franchise Phantasm, we have some surprisingly good news. The last film in the franchise went straight to video back in 1998, but 16 years later, a fifth film in the series is on the way. And we don't mean that it's in development, because the film is already done, having been shot over the past couple years. And if that's not enough good news, there's already a teaser trailer and poster to whet your appetite. And for those who are big fans, you'll be happy to know that Angus Scrimm, Reggie Bannister, Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury and Kat Lester are all returning for this one. Watch it!
Just a couple days ago we featured a new round of artwork from Blurppy for their "Poster Posse" proposal. Now we have a second round of artwork celebrating the giant lizard, and these might be even better. There's plenty more pieces showing off the impressive size of Godzilla and his infamous radioactive energy blasts. As usual, we've picked some of the cooler pieces that were submitted to pay tribute to the monstrous reboot from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, but there's a whole slew of more great artwork (and variants) to check out at Blurppy, and plenty more Poster Posses coming later this summer, so stay tuned. Look below!
A new trailer for Jupiter Ascending, the latest sci-fi endeavor from Andy & Lana Wachowski, should be arriving anytime now. In the meantime, the first posters for the hopeful summer blockbuster have arrived, and they're not all that convincing. Since the first trailer seemed a bit odd, and the Japanese trailer didn't improve that vibe much, Warner Bros. has a lot of convincing to do in order to get butts in the seats for this original sci-fi flick. Otherwise, the Wachowskis just might have another flop on their hands (which might be why The Matrix is rumored for a reboot). The two posters feature stars Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, but the aesthetic is an odd, fantasy mix of The Great Gatsby and Cloud Atlas marketing. Look!
Just after the viral marketing for the indie sci-fi flick The Signal kicked off last week, we got the first trailer for the film that debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. Now a second poster has arrived for the film, and it's pretty trippy. A walking, radiation-suited figure (maybe Laurence Fishburne) is given a kaleidoscopic effect, and it's just a stylish image that catches the eye and even creates a bit of mystery. This is such a cool movie, and we hope audiences will seek it out this summer and enjoy the ominous feel, the twists and turns, and just an original sci-fi flick amongst a pool of franchises, sequels and reboots. Look!
Earlier this month, some awesome artwork for X-Men: Days of Future Past surfaced online after Blurppy enticed some artists with one of their "Poster Posse" proposals. Now they're at it again, but this time they've used another forthcoming summer blockbuster as the inspiration, and it's a big one. Godzilla is on the verge of becoming a big deal again (literally, this is probably the biggest the King of Monsters has ever been), and with the film not too far away, we've picked some of the cool pieces that were submitted to pay tribute to the monstrous reboot from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, and they're pretty great. Look!
With the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier just under two weeks away, we can't wait to see how this film shakes up the Marvel cinematic universe leading up to The Avengers: Age of Ultron (which just debuted some cool concept art right here). Now we have one final poster to show off for the Marvel sequel starring Chris Evans, and it takes a cue from the praised 70s political thriller style the film is said to embody and pull off magnificently. The poster comes from artist Paolo Rivera, and was commissioned by Marvel, complete with a retro style of films from decades past. It's probably the best poster yet. Look below!
Though the mind-blowing, sci-fi film Gravity didn't take home Best Picture, director Alfonso Cuaron still walked away with an Oscar for his work behind the camera, and it was well-deserved. And while the film is kind of old news now as we move on to the releases of 2014, there's still some cool stuff surfacing surrounding the impressive piece of cinema. In this case, Framestore, who was responsible for the insane visual effects that ran through the entirety of the film, crafted a bunch of poster designs to promote the film, but only a few were used. io9 has rounded up a bunch of the preliminary design sketches, and they even have the old 2012 release date, which just goes to show you how far in advance these kind of plans begin.
Earlier this year, our first look at the comedy sequel Dumb & Dumber To arrived with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back as dimwitted best friends Lloyd and Harry. The film doesn't come out until this fall, but the first teaser posters have finally arrived, and while they don't feature Daniels or Carrey, they each have a little item everyone will recognize from the first film. It's the two ridiculous tuxedos the dumb duo wears to the fancy preservation society dinner where Harry accidentally kills an owl with a champagne cork. We hope the appearance of these posters means there's a teaser trailer not too far behind. See the two posters below!
While it's not quite as good as yesterday's poster featuring the King of Monsters destroying more buildings with his gigantic ass, this latest poster for Godzilla is still pretty cool. This time we get a look the giant lizard from behind, but we're a little closer than one of the other posters featuring Godzilla destroying San Francisco. Those spikes on his back are massive, and again, the size of Godzilla this time is almost unfathomable. How will we be able to stop this thing if an atomic bomb didn't do the job? Now we're just waiting to see how big some of the other monsters slated to appear in the film will be in comparison. Look!
Right now you can catch the R-rated comedy Bad Words in limited release, and the comedy from first-time director Jason Bateman (who also stars in the film) will hit more theaters this weekend. To keep the hype machine rolling, the "Arrested Development" and Horrible Bosses star just unveiled a cool new illustrated poster that was created with the help of users on Reddit. Bateman asked people to list their top filthy words, and he picked 20 to include on the limited edition piece. So the poster is pretty raunchy, at least in language, so be wary if you don't like certain vulgar words, and some not-so-vulgar as well. Look!
We just caught a glimpse of more destruction in a new international trailer for the new version of Godzilla from director Gareth Edwards, and even though Bryan Cranston was once one of the most feared drug dealers in the country, he just can't handle a giant lizard roaming about. Now a new poster shows us why since the King of Monsters is just endlessly destroying cities. It's the sheer size of this new Godzilla that's truly remarkable, and that's shown off yet again with his giant ass taking up a lot of space, and a helicopter just watching it happen. If the second trailer for this flick is any indicator, this is just going to be awesome.
Following that cool banner from South by Southwest (which you can see split up into higher quality individual posters right here), Captain America: The Winter Soldier has gotten one more IMAX poster, taking most of the characters from that banner and combined them into a single stylish poster. We're not sure if they'll be giving this one out to people who check out the early IMAX screenings of the film, but it would look pretty cool on a wall. It almost feels like a propaganda poster, which seems appropriate since early buzz on the Marvel sequel says the film works as a 70s political thriller, just with a superhero. Look!
The Only Thing Roger Loved More Than Movies... This isn't the best poster you'll see all year, but it might just be one of the best documentaries you see all year, which is why his is worth featuring anyway. With a release coming up this summer, CNN Films & Magnolia Pictures have debuted the poster for the Roger Ebert doc Life Itself, directed by Steve James (Hoop Dreams) based on Ebert's memoirs of the same name. The doc first premiered at Sundance to glowing reviews across the board. It's the kind of doc where you feel every emotion, but by the end you'll be inspired to live and love life—and movies—as much as Ebert.
