Last fall we caught a trailer for Nacho Vigalondo's interesting thriller Open Windows starring Elijah Wood. The film is poised to premiere at SXSW next Monday, March 10th, and we have a creepy new poster for the film with a gimp framing a shot for his body-mounted camera. For those who don't know the film follows Wood as Nick, a fanboy of actress Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey) who has won an online contest to have dinner with her. But when the plans get canceled, a stranger named Chord tries to make up for the loss by allowing Nick to spy on Jill from his computer, all leading to a much more sinister plan in mind. Look!
Following that potentially spoilerish TV spot for Captain America: The Winter Soldier that teases a big character death, we have a new poster showing off one of the new supporting characters. Robert Redford already got his own poster showing off his S.H.I.E.L.D. head character Alexander Pierce, and now one of the new heroes gets the spotlight. Anthony Mackie plays Cap's new sidekick Falcon, and the trailers have already shown him flying around and getting into the thick of the action, but now he and his bad ass wings get their own poster. We're pretty sure the sequel will top Thor: The Dark World and shake everything up.
The second full trailer for The Grand Budapest Hotel from director Wes Anderson highlighted the amazing ensemble cast that includes Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton, Jude Law, Tom Wilkinson, Ralph Fiennes and many more familiar faces. Now they shine once again in a new illustrated poster by Peter Strain, and a featurette showing them talking about the story which sprawls across multiple generations and is situated around the title European hotel. The film is just a couple weeks away and we can't wait to see Anderson's latest endeavor.
It's been a week full of Guardians of the Galaxy hype from the first fantastic trailer that was released on Tuesday to today's featurettes showing off Bradley Cooper voicing Rocket Raccoon and Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and Vin Diesel talking about their wild space superhero characters from the forthcoming Marvel film. Now it seems the hype machine is finally slowing down with the first official poster landing, showing off the galactic misfits looking like a group of bad asses on some alien planet. The whole deal is sealed by that awesome tagline, not to mention Marvel name-dropping their own franchises.
Sometime soon there will be a new trailer for Gareth Edwards' new take on the classic movie monster Godzilla (watch the teaser trailer if he haven't already), but until then we have a new poster to hold us over. The King of Monsters has his back to us as he lumbers through San Francisco, fire engulfing from the terror and chaos he's creating. Obviously Godzilla is the star, but we're happy that the marketing campaign hasn't taken to using the stars of the film like Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and others to sell the film with their floating heads yet. Come back soon for the new trailer. Look!
Though director Tony Scott is no longer with us, he left behind a legacy of spectacular films that will inspire generations of cinephiles and filmmakers. One such gem is True Romance, arguably the best film that Scott directed in his all too short career. And if you're a huge fan of the film written by Quentin Tarantino and starring Christian Slater, Brad Pitt, Gary Oldman, Dennis Hopper, Christopher Walken, Patricia Arquette and many more, then you'll probably want to grab one of these slick new pieces of artwork from Odd City Entertainment, created by the artist Gabz, one each for Detroit and LA.
"One of the greatest action movies ever made." That's the quote (from Matt Goldberg's Collider reveiw / read Alex's review here) that headlines this new mosaic poster for the kick ass action sequel The Raid 2: Berandal, next premiering at the SXSW Film Festival in March. Latino Review first found, via Twitter, their latest international poster for the sequel, which is made up of small images from the film to form the very stern face of Rama, played again by Iko Uwais from The Raid. We still need an official US title, but for now this is what the film is known as. And I can't wait for it to hit theaters. Until then, check this out.
Simply sublime. With the 2014 BAFTA Awards officially announced tonight, lead by 12 Years a Slave and Gravity, we can also reveal the artwork for the Best Film nominees, now a tradition for these awards. The artwork this year, printed as part of the BAFTA Awards brochure, is by British artist La Boca and features five distinct poster designs for this year's nominees: Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave, which just won Best Film, David O. Russell's American Hustle, Paul Greengrass' Captain Phillips, Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity and, as the fifth and final poster, Stephen Frears' Philomena. All must see - catch the art below.
We'll find out this weekend if The LEGO Movie is all the rage to win a second weekend at the box office against Valentine's Day fare like About Last Night and Winter's Tale, but in the meantime, how about we keep the LEGO fun going? This time Yahoo Movies has unveiled some awards season LEGO fun by recreating the movie posters for all nine of this year's nominees for Best Picture at the 86th Academy Awards (see all of the nominees right here). They're not remarkable creations since the posters have mostly just replaced the real actors on the posters with LEGO minifigures, but they're pretty damn cute. Look!
Not too long ago, we highlighted a couple photos from Brick Mansions, one of the final films featuring a performance by the late Paul Walker. The film sees the Fast & Furious star in action thriller mode as he fights against a ticking clock film about an undercover cop (Walker) tasked with going into a tenement named Brick Mansions in order to disarm a neutron bomb ticking down. It looks like there will at least one explosion since the first poster for the film (a remake of District B13) has arrived and features illustrated versions of Walker and his co-star David Belle jumping out of a building window from a big fireball. Look!
We've already seen the first theatrical trailer for Transcendence, the directorial debut of The Dark Knight and Inception cinematographer Wally Pfister. But there's another glimpse at the spring release coming later this week with a new trailer. Before we get to that though, the first poster has debuted, and while it relies upon star Johnny Depp by putting his name at the top, we're happy to see that his face isn't needed for the marketing campaign yet. All we see is the back of Depp's bald head with a bunch of wires plugged into his head, just as we saw him in the trailer. We're still not sure how this flick will be, but we're curious.
A new teaser for the odd, erotic drama Under the Skin popped up at the end of last month, and a new theatrical trailer will arrive tomorrow. But before then, we have a gorgeous new trailer featuring star Scarlett Johansson and her lovely face amongst the stars. The poster is actually in the form of a quad, which means it's probably from the UK (where the film hits in March). The Guardian called Birth director Jonathan Glazer's film an "extraordinary piece of outsider art." And with a story following an alien in human form seducing and capturing human males, it's not hard to see why. See the new trailer tomorrow!
In case you weren't aware The LEGO Movie hits theaters everywhere today, and this writer will have a glowing review for the thoroughly entertaining animated flick from Phil Lord & Chris Miller later today. But until then, Mondo has released a spectacular new poster from artist Tom Whalen commemorating the truly original film. All the right characters are on display, including Chris Pratt's endearing but clueless new master builder Emmet, and it's just a great piece of artwork. Stay tuned to @MondoNews to see when the 18″ x 24″ screenprint with an edition of 475 prints goes on sale for $45 sometime today. Look below!
Just like Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) got his own poster for The Avengers, one of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s head honchos gets his own poster too. USA Today has just unveiled a character poster for Alexander Pierce, the questionably trustworthy head of the unique terrorist fighting agency, who is played by the legendary Robert Redford in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The addition of Redford to the cast of a film like this turned a lot of heads, and it might catch the attention of some older theater-goers who may not be into the whole comic book movie scene. This would be a good one to reel them in since the film is said to be like an old school 70s political thriller. We'll find out when the Marvel sequel hits theaters in April. Look!
