Next week, Fox Searchlight unleashes the madness and brilliance that is Alejandro González Iñárritu's latest film Birdman, which promises a tour de force performance from former Batman star Michael Keaton. We've already seen one awesome trailer, and an extended international trailer, and that's about all we need to see to get excited for the film. Our own Alex Billington already saw the film at Telluride and couldn't stop raving about it. Now we have a batch of cool posters promoting the film with artwork taking Birdman to various iconic American landmarks. You can even try to win all of these posters as well. Look!
With pieces of art paying tribute to films like Interstellar, Guardians of the Galaxy and Godzilla, there's no doubt that Poster Posse has become a great collection of work paying tribute to some of the most talked about blockbusters in recent memory. Previously, Blurppy hosted the unveiling of their latest feature film projects, but now they have their own site, and they're kicking things off with another round of masterful artwork commemorating Disney and Marvels first animated feature film collaboration Big Hero 6, coming next month. And one of the below prints will be handed out at New York Comic-Con this week. Look below!
After a new poster for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies debuted yesterday with a grimy Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) wielding his trusty blade Sting, the character posters continue to be unveiled with fans being able to vote for which one they want to see next. This time, Gandalf (Ian McKellen) won the affection of the fans as his character poster was revealed today. The old wizard looks rather worried, and considering his predicament at the end of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, we don't blame him. How will this final chapter wrap things up and lead into Lord of the Rings? We'll find out in December. Look!
People really need to start paying attention to Jake Gyllenhaal again. He turned in a fantastic performance in Prisoners and did a stellar job in the doppelganger thriller Enemy as well. Now his latest film is the praised thriller Nightcrawler, which received tons of rave reviews from the Toronto International Film Festival last month. The film looks like a seedy, stylish thriller, and it's arriving just in time for Halloween at the end of the month. Now a short new trailer (it's basically a TV spot) has surfaced from Regal Cinemas, and there's also a cool new poster for the flick as well. There might not be much great horror this season, but there's plenty of great new thrillers for audiences to enjoy this month. Watch below!
"I have... I have never used a sword in my life." We're getting closer and closer to the grand finale of The Hobbit, with Peter Jackson's third and final movie The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies due out in theaters in just a few more months (starting December 17th). We've seen one full trailer so far, waiting for another one to hit soon (likely attached to Interstellar), and one teaser poster with Bilbo before. But now Warner Bros is releasing a series of character posters for The Battle of Five Armies and they've started with Bilbo - who is brandishing Sting like he definitely has handled a sword and knows how to kick some orc (and spider) ass with it. With a huge ensemble cast we expect to see many more posters soon. Check this one out.
Today we get to exclusively debut the official release poster for Bad Turn Worse, formerly known as We Gotta Get Out of This Place, a gritty Texas crime thriller that marks the debut of brothers Zeke & Simon Hawkins. The film premiered at TIFF 2013 and picked up the Audience Award at AFI, hitting theaters this fall. Compared to this year's acclaimed thriller Cold in July, the plot follows three Texas teens (played by Jeremy Allen White, Logan Huffman and Mackenzie Davis) who get caught up in organized crime trying to escape their dead-end existence in a cotton-mill. The film, produced by Brian Udovich and Justin Duprie of Rough & Tumble Films, also had a gorgeous hand-drawn poster for its festival run last year. New art below.
Eighteen Films. One legend. Gravitas Ventures has revealed poster art for their upcoming documentary 21 Years: Richard Linklater, telling the story of Linklater's filmmaker career so far. Co-directed by Michael Dunaway and Tara Wood, the doc features (some of these guys are seen on the poster) Zac Efron, Matthew McConaughey, Ethan Hawke, Billy Bob Thornton, Jack Black, Kevin Smith, Parker Posey and many others. It's already set to premiere in theaters and VOD starting this November, so there's not too much longer of a wait for this one. I'm looking forward to delving deeper into Linklater's fascinating and invigorating career.
We've previously pointed out the overwhelming trend of movie posters almost always looking the same nowadays, with little to no artistic effort put into promoting the film on a poster. One such trend that we've seen recently on posters for Thor and The Social Network is the use of overlaying text on top of the image of one of the stars of the film (you can see even more of them here too). And now it's Benedict Cumberbatch and his awards season hopeful performance in The Imitation Game that gets the familiar poster treatment. It's not the best effort, but we just want you to see this film that our own Alex Billington saw at Tellurdie and called an "exceptionally compelling film led by remarkable performances." Look now!
The teaser trailer for this winter's sequel Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb arrived this past summer, and now 20th Century Fox has unveiled a new poster for the film starring Ben Stiller. It's certainly one of the better posters we've seen for the franchise as it takes the ensemble cast that includes Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, Rami Malek and more, and puts them into an M.C. Escher style image with staircases that don't seem to end. Yes, Robin Williams is in the poster too (this is one of his final performances) and you can even spot a tiny Steve Coogan and Owen Wilson if you scan carefully. Look!
We've seen not one, not two, but three official new posters for Christopher Nolan's fall release Interstellar, and it's starting to be a little too much. In fact, despite the fact that the first poster that debuted this week showed Matthew McConaughey on another world (which we've seen glimpsed in the most recent trailer), we think this last poster might just be overkill. We already know the space crew goes to another world, but this one shows them on a planet full of water. Or maybe it shows them on Earth after they've returned and the world is flooded. It won't ruin the movie, but does it give a little too much mystery away? Here's hoping this IMAX poster is the last one before the film gets released later this fall. Look now!
Production began on Insidious: Chapter 3 earlier this year, complete with a first look photo giving us a glimpse at the film that actually predates the first two films in the horror franchise from Blumhouse Productions. It's writer Leigh Whannel stepping up to direct this time with a story he hatched with previous franchise director James Wan, and now a teaser poster has popped up hinting at the terror that awaits. It's enough to make you consider checking your vents before bed. We're curious to see what haunted this family before the events we've already seen unfold from the mysterious place called The Further. Look!
Just after two new posters for Christopher Nolan's space travel drama Interstellar debuted, one more gorgeous one is here, this one with a bit more hope and inspiration in the tagline "Go further." And now, if you just can't wait to see Matthew McConaughey trek across space in November, you can do some space exploration of your own. Along with the new poster, Paramount Pictures unveiled a new game app that allows you to create your own solar system and also travel through other player-created systems in the ship Endurance from the movie. There's even real science applications with how you use gravity and fuel. Look!
Following the recent poster for Christopher Nolan's promising sci-fi drama Interstellar that shows Matthew McConaughey on another planet glimpsed in the powerful trailer from not too long ago, another poster has popped up. This one features McConaughey standing alongside Mackenzie Foy, who plays his daughter in the film as their farmhouse, staring up at the starry sky. Forget the fact that it seems to be dusk on Earth and the sky wouldn't look like that, it's still a great contrast of imagery for a poster. We're wondering if the debut of these posters means there's another trailer on the horizon before November. Look!
Following yesterday's awesome Poster Posse collection from Blurppy for this fall's release of Interstellar from director Christopher Nolan, an official poster from Paramount Pictures has debuted online. This one is a little more conventional as it merely shows Matthew McConaughey on another world, which we've seen glimpsed in the most recent trailer for the film as well. Some think that the most recent trailer showed too much, but considering it's all out of context and a Nolan movie has never been spoiled by trailers, it shouldn't be anything to worry about. Could we get one more trailer before the release? We'll see.
