"Just keep swimming! Just keep swimming!" Where'd she go! Disney has unveiled the first official teaser poster for Pixar's Finding Dory, the sequel to Finding Nemo, starring once again Dory the blue tang and her clownfish pals Marlin and Nemo. The voice cast includes Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Idris Elba, Dominic West, Diane Keaton, Ty Burrell and others. The teaser poster is very simple featuring nothing but Dory escaping out of frame, and the new tagline for the movie. The tagline is very simple as well, and almost too on the nose for my liking, but this is just a tease so there will be plenty more to see. For now, take a look.
This scoundrel returns December 18th. And so does Leia. Plus we get to meet a young, new soon-to-be Jedi, another dark side guy, and a few more others the new Star Wars hits theaters in December. A set of five new character posters have debuted online for Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams. The main five posters are for the main five characters - Han and Leia, played by Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, of course. Plus the new ones: John Boyega as Finn, Daisy Ridley as Rey, and Adam Driver (under mask) as Kylo Ren. I really love these designs - only one eye showing, the other half of their face covered up by their weapon of choice - they send a very powerful message. Only six more weeks to go.
Get ready - the Horde is coming! Director Duncan Jones has confirmed that the first official trailer for the Warcraft movie will be online this Friday (November 6th). Duncan posted an extra photo to Twitter today, and Universal released a brand new poster showing the two faces of orcs and humans, with red and blue drips, split by a big ass sword. It's a cool tease and a cool poster. Robert Kazinsky stars as Ogrim the Orc, Travis Fimmel stars as Anduin Lothar, and the full cast includes Ben Foster, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Dominic Cooper and Clancy Brown. Hopefully the trailer lives up to the hype, stay tuned for that. See below.
In Mexico this weekend they're celebrating the Day of the Dead, an event known for its masks and stylized artwork not to mention skeletons galore. With a new Star Wars movie coming up, Fandango asked a few of their favorite artists to create their own Day of the Dead-themed Star Wars posters and these are the result. All this art is inspired by the entire Star Wars universe and its cool to see such unique and intricate designs. Even though they're not really connected with The Force Awakens, I had to share them anyway to keep us all in the Star Wars mood. We're just 7 weeks away until the new movie opens. Check them below.
Movie posters always end up becoming the iconic image for the movie, used to promote it and seen on the walls and at ticket stands in movie theaters everywhere. Some of the time a poster will be custom made, or photographed just for marketing, but other times it can be made using a scene from a movie - an actual still or a scene that inspires a design. This short video by Candice Drouet takes a look at a big batch of movie posters and the scenes they're inspired by. The framing is a bit funky, because sometimes I just want to see the scene more than the poster, but it's still a good juxtaposition to see the exact moment in the film. Enjoy!
Holy crap this poster! My goodness. 20th Century Fox has unveiled the poster art for Alejandro González Iñárritu's The Revenant, one of our most anticipated films left to see this fall. So far the marketing for this has been perfect - the two incredible trailers we've seen have been breathtaking, all the imagery they've released looks amazing. Now we have a gorgeous poster to top it off. I'm glad that Fox's marketing team is as enthusiastic as I am about this film, because this is all making me even more excited. It's also refreshingly bold that neither Leonardo DiCaprio or Tom Hardy or any of the cast are on the poster, but that doesn't make it any less stunning. Very impressive for a studio movie, we rarely get posters this good. Take a look.
Get ready for Star Wars Mania. To follow-up the new trailer and ticket sales, AMC has revealed the first poster in a series that will be debuting each week after the movie's opening. IMAX announced (via their blog) and AMC tweeted about a promo they're hosting on Sundays, where those seeing Star Wars - The Force Awakens in IMAX will receive a new poster each week designed by artist Dan Mumford. Here's the text: "Each Sunday, from December 20 to January 10, guests who purchase a ticket to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens in IMAX 3D will receive an AMC-exclusive Star Wars print from artist Dan Mumford. A new poster will be revealed each week." The first stunning poster featuring Rey and BB-8 can be seen below.
There has been an awakening… Disney/Lucasfilm have revealed the first official poster for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a continuation of the sci-fi saga that George Lucas started in 1977. This poster is very reminiscent of all the other official artwork for the two original trilogies, and isn't designed by Drew Struzan, however I hope we'll see more Struzan work soon. In the meantime, this is spectacular poster that captures both the dark side and the light side. John Boyega stars as Finn, along with Daisy Ridley as Rey, and Adam Driver as Kylo Ren - these three are featured prominently. Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher also show up, along with Chewie, Poe Dameron & Captain Phasma. Watch the new trailer right here.
"You are a kite dancing in a hurricane, Mr Bond." Holy crap, this is badass! IMAX has debuted their new poster for James Bond's Spectre, starring Daniel Craig as Agent 007, directed by Sam Mendes. It's a bleak and bold skull mask painted in front of James Bond's face, connecting to the imagery we've seen in the trailers and on the other posters so far. I love how it's just right up there front and center, and the subtle blue tint in the eyes is just perfect. I don't care if Daniel Craig doesn't like playing Bond, this is still very cool, and it's just an ideal tease and tiny hint at the Spectre storyline. I can't wait to see this! Bring on Bond.
Premiering at the New York Film Festival tonight is the new documentary from Paul Thomas Anderson. Yep, he made a documentary in the last year, but it's only 54 minutes long (more, more!). The doc is about his friend and collaborator Jonny Greenwood, who he follows to the Mehrangarh Fort in India to be hosted by the Maharaja of Jodhpur. Greenwood was there to record an album with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur, and an amazing group of local artists. The doc is said to capture that experience and the music and is "pure magic". Check out this fan-made poster art made to look like a vintage portrait of the Maharaja.
Always bring protection. Now this is a damn good poster. Paramount has unveiled a new poster for the horror comedy Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, once known as Scouts vs Zombies, directed by Christopher Landon about a trio of scouts who take on a town of zombies. The first trailer for this arrived just last month, and it actually looked pretty fun, better than I was expecting. The cast includes Halston Sage, Logan Miller, Elle Evans, Lukas Gage, and Joey Morgan. The movie better live up to the likes of this poster and deliver on the epicness. We don't know who the artist is, but hopefully we'll find out soon.
Nothing can prepare you for the end. Bold tagline. Lionsgate has released the flashy final poster artwork for Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, the conclusion and grand finale in the Hunger Games series that started in 2012. This poster features Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, flying with her bow and arrow and glorious red armor, with a flaming mockingjay appearing behind her. I really like the poster just before this, with the blue mockingjay on her shoulder, but this one is the sort of epic grand finale poster they need to end with. It's worth checking out as we count down these last few weeks before release.
"The screen is a magic medium. It has such power that it can retain interest as it conveys emotions and moods that no other art form can hope to tackle." Every day is a good day to watch a Stanley Kubrick movie. And if you need any inspiration, this excellent poster set from Max Temescu should help give you an idea of what to watch. Max has designed a series of illustrated posters for 11 Kubrick movies, and I really love the designs. Sure, there have been plenty of great Kubrick posters over the years, but the work here is impressive. My favorites are the usual suspects: A Clockwork Orange, 2001 and Dr. Strangelove. See below.
Bond is back! There's now two months left until the new James Bond movie hits theaters, and I'm starting to get really excited. So is the movie studio, as they're continuing to release more and more marketing to get us in the mood for some spy action. A set of new promo banners have debuted for Sam Mendes' Spectre, the 24th Bond movie, once again starring Daniel Craig as Agent 007. The official poster with Bond is his tux debuted a few weeks ago, but this new poster also features Léa Seydoux (as Madeleine Swann) at his side. And there's also the masked skeleton character seen in Mexico showing up again, too. Is that Blofeld?
