Don't let go. Whoa. The very first teaser poster has been revealed today to continue the build-up to the first trailer reveal tomorrow for Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity. The highly anticipated, long-awaited space film stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock as astronauts who get launched into space after a catastrophic accident sends them drifting away from Earth. We've been covering this movie for years and this is finally the very first bit of marketing material released publicly; they still haven't even released a real photo yet. This is a stunning poster, I'm impressed by it, but my only question - why is Cuarón's name so damn small?
A touching film deserves touching marketing. So far, so good, let's hope they keep this up. The Weinstein Company has unveiled this first official poster for Ryan Coogler's award-winning feature debut Fruitvale Station, originally known as just Fruitvale, starring Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle) in a career-defining role as Oscar. We saw and fell in love with this film at Sundance, a powerful, moving, heartfelt, intimate portrait of a young man, and a senseless tragedy. The poster contains what looks like a canvas painting of a scene of Oscar holding hands with his daughter, a striking image I'm glad they used for a poster. See below.
The poster campaign for Man of Steel has finally picked up with the film just over a month away from release. A new banner popped up yesterday with an awesome new TV spot, and last week a high-flying new poster surfaced with Superman (Henry Cavill) flying at breakneck speed. Now another banner has popped up with a flying Supes, but this one is from a distance, featuring the superhero breaking the sound barrier. It's an image we saw in the very first teaser trailer for the film last summer with The Dark Knight Rises, and this time there's some lens flare to go along with it. Will Zack Snyder use them as much as J.J. Abrams?
The trailer for R.I.P.D. has come and gone, and while it feels wholly familiar with a vibe similar to Men in Black, and director Robert Schwentke's previously action comedy RED, it still looks like it could be some summer fun. Now a new poster has arrived throwing a heroic Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds into the midst of some serious chaos downtown. There's a lightning tornado, some four-armed monster on a building ledge and someone seemingly trapped in that flaming police car. Plus that tagline isn't too far off from "Protecting the Earth from the scum of the universe." We're still interested to see how this plays out.
Fear. Sacrifice. Contact. This is awesome. Our favorite sci-fi blog io9 has debuted an impressive poster for Europa Report, the indie sci-fi about a mission to Jupiter's moon, Europa, where they're searching for life in the oceans. The film is apparently going to be presented entirely found footage, as was teased in the first trailer and footage late last year. The poster plays on that with some grainy visual static like the photo was decoded from video. The image itself is just a gorgeous shot of single astronaut walking towards the gigantic frozen ocean ice formation, with Jupiter (and their ship) looming above. It's simple, but a powerful image, and I love how much it conveys in just one beautiful image without the need for floating heads or huge text.
It's time to get out. Hasn't it been time to get the hell out since the first one? Ah, this has double meaning. The Spanish [REC] horror series continues with another sequel this year, believe it or not, titled [REC] 4 Apocalypse to follow-up [REC] 3: Genesis from last year. Our friends at Bloody-Disgusting have debuted the first teaser poster and first teaser trailer which, of course, contain copious amounts of blood (and some gore) because that's what this series is all about. It continues the story from the first film, with the young TV reporter who came with the firemen and made it out, but is she infected, too? From this teaser, that's a yes!
Prepare to get annihilated. Yes, The World's End is coming soon, and we're all going
down with to see it! The first official trailer will be online later this week, but in the meantime, an explosive new UK quad poster has debuted for the Edgar Wright movie starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. This one isn't particularly revealing, considering we've seen a few photos from the apocalypse comedy already, but I am intrigued by the guys with the glowing blue eyes in the background. Who the heck are they? They can't be more zombies, right? Aliens? Robots? All of the above? Not the best poster, but at least something to hold us over for now.
It's Free Comic Book Day! Someone please tell me they're handing these posters out at comic book stores. We've been building up hype for James Mangold's The Wolverine, based on the Frank Miller comic book arc, which continues with this new poster for the villain - Silver Samurai. The big, bad samurai super villain that Wolvie goes up against was first revealed in the CinemaCon footage earlier in the week, showing him in a fight with the indestructible Marvel superhero. The new art is in the same beautiful watercolor style as the first teaser poster showing Wolverine. I like the look, and I'm getting more excited to see this movie.
Just this morning, a new TV spot for Man of Steel hit, and while audiences wait to see how Zack Snyder fares with this DC Comics reboot (with the fate of Justice League lying on its shoulders), we finally have a new poster for the anticipated June release. This one puts Superman back where he belongs: up in the sky. Flying at break-neck speed with a J.J Abrams style lens flare in the corner, Henry Cavill looks in a hurry to do some good. Or maybe he's on his way to kick the hell out of Michael Shannon as General Zod. Either way, it's a pretty cool poster, and there's likely a couple more coming as we get closer to release. Look now!
Forget about love. Just sex. Lots of it. While we patiently wait for a trailer or footage or any actual release details for Lars von Trier's already-controversial new film Nymphomaniac, the first teaser poster has made an appearance via IMPAwards. The teaser features nothing but simple black text and two humongous parentheses which, inspired by internet ASCII art, together form a shape that looks a lot like something else. So ASCII art can sell movies nowadays? Why not. At least they're doing something unique here and making us and our own (vivid) imaginations fill in the blank, which is why this art works so well. Take a look below!
Yesterday brought a new Pacific Rim banner with some robot versus monster chaos in Sydney, Australia, and now a new one sheet assembles multiple Jaeger robots in the ocean, ready for some sort of big battle. The most recent bit of footage showed off more of the operators inside of these giant machines, and it's clear a lot of though went into the actual mechanics behind these giants so the drivers are not just Power Rangers getting shook around in front of a DJ console. Again, if you're seeing promos for the film and you think this is just Transformers fighting monsters, this is a Guillermo del Toro project, so give the guy some credit.
Experienced it in IMAX 3D! Arriving in theaters in 17 more days is J.J. Abrams' sequel Star Trek Into Darkness, bringing back the crew of the USS Enterprise for a bout with the deceptive John Harrison, played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Earlier this week we featured the exclusive IMAX midnight poster, with art by Mark Englert, but IMAX has another poster up their sleeves. This new banner shows the Enterprise being dwarfed and attacked by the humongous-looking USS Vengeance ship, which we ran a good photo of last week. This is a nice compliment the other final poster with the Enterprise on it, a big step up, I dig it.
Following the stunning, explosive new footage from Pacific Rim that was shown at WonderCon earlier this year, the hype continues with this cool new banner. It's the Sydney Harbour Bridge at the center of destruction this time as a Kaiju has torn a huge chunk out of the structure while a Jaeger robot is poised to attack (though it might also be doing more harm than good to that bridge). The scale of this movie is just epic, and while the action does feel like Godzilla versus Transformers, audiences should know that there is a great human element to the script, so we're not just looking at another junky Battleship here. Poster below!
"I'm here on a mission: fighting back." While Iron Man 3 is already in theaters in Europe, it finally arrives in US theaters everywhere this Friday. We've been posting posters galore for the superhero sequel, starring Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark, but there's a few more to feature. Mondo has dropped their two posters, one with a silver/gold variant, for Iron Man 3, directed by Shane Black. Phantom City made a glow-in-the-dark armory schematic, going for $45, which is awesome. And Martin Ansin made the other, which even if you don't like Mondo is still undeniably better than any official poster we've seen for this Marvel movie.
