Drafthouse Films Unveils US Poster for Sign Language Film 'The Tribe'

The Tribe Trailer

If there is one experimental film you take a risk and see, it should be this - Miroslav Slaboshpitsky's The Tribe, a powerful and mesmerizing Ukrainian film presented entirely using sign language, without any subtitles. It has been playing at festivals all over, from Cannes to Sundance to TIFF to AFI to Denver, and the Locarno Film Festival, where I saw it. In my review, I wrote "this is a film that deserves all the acclaim it's getting for being so unique, so incredible, so bold in concept and execution." While the film has had posters before, this one really goes for sign language over all else. But oh there's so much more to see in it. I also dig the tagline they're using now and seem to pushing: Love and Hate Need No Translation. See below.

Kevin Tong's Stellar Mondo Art for Brad Bird's Sci-Fi 'Tomorrowland'

Kevin Tong - Tomorrowland

"What if there was a place… where nothing was impossible?" Mondo has unveiled some stunning new art that they're selling in promotion for the upcoming release of Disney's Tomorrowland, directed by Brad Bird. The new art piece is 24" x 36" screen print designed by Kevin Tong (visit his website), and boy is it gorgeous. The art depicts Tomorrowland in the movie Tomorrowland, complete with transformation from the "real" world in the lower left featuring Casey Newton, played by Britt Robertson. Each of these will go so on sale on Friday, May 22nd when the film opens in theaters. And I'd say they are must have, especially if you're excited for this movie like we are. The variant version, in the evening it looks like, is my favorite one.

Explosive Marketing Tricks on 'London Has Fallen' Teaser Poster

London Has Fallen

There goes Big Ben. Considering the results of the election in the UK today, it's a particularly perfect time for Focus Features to drop this poster for London Has Fallen. This sequel to Olympus Has Fallen is not the Roland Emmerich one (that was White House Down), instead it's the one with Gerard Butler. Who, believe it or not, is back for this sequel being directed by Babak Najafi. The massive cast includes: Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Melissa Leo, Radha Mitchell, Robert Forster, Jackie Earle Haley, Charlotte Riley, Sean O’Bryan, Alon Aboutboul and Waleed Zuaiter. None of them are seen on this poster, because it's just a shot of the Big Ben clocktower being blown out. I guess we'll find out who did this later?

Another Boring Marvel Poster Debuts for 'Ant-Man' with Paul Rudd

Ant-Man Poster

You can do better than this, Marvel! The final official poster for Marvel Studio's Ant-Man has debuted on Marvel.com today, timed perfectly the week after Avengers: Age of Ultron opened theaters. So now they're continuing the Marvel hype train by reminding us that Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd & Michael Douglas is coming up later this summer. Unfortunately, it's another very boring poster from Marvel that Photoshops a bunch of actors into a really bland design. And yet they were doing so good! The first teaser poster was great, and those tiny billboards are brilliant, but why revert to such boring work for the final pay off poster?

Pharrell Debuts New 'Dope' Poster - It's Hard Out Here for a Geek

Dope - Pharrell Debuts New Poster

Geeks unite! This is one of my favorite films of the year, so I'm happy to keep writing about it, and I love the marketing for it so far. Instead of focusing on prestige and critics, they're selling Rick Famuyiwa's Dope purely based on how awesome the characters and story are - which is fine by me, because it's an excellent film (read my Sundance review) that deserves to find a wide audience. Musician Pharrell Williams, who is an executive producer on the film, debuted this new poster which isn't particularly artsy but does represent this film very nicely. On here you'll see Shameik Moore, Tony Revolori and Kiersey Clemons as three friends from Inglewood. Give it a look below, but most importantly mark down this release in your calendar.

New 'Fantastic Four' Lines Up for Quad Banner & Character Posters

Fantastic Four

Not too long ago, the second trailer for Josh Trank's reboot of the comic book property Fantastic Four showed off more of the quartet in action, not to mention offering a glimpse of Doctor Doom. Now Miles Teller, Kata Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell have been lined up on a new banner and four character posters, with each showing their powers as Mr. Fantastic, The Invisible Woman, Human Torch and The Thing. They're pretty glossy Photoshop jobs, but thats just what we've come to expect from the studio marketing department. Also, if you look at the background, you'll see the Baxter building. Look now!

Fire & Photoshop Engulf the New Poster for 'Terminator: Genisys'

Terminator: Genisys

It looks like Paramount Pictures isn't going to be shy at all about the major plot twist that was revealed in the last trailer for Terminator: Genisys. A new poster for the sequel/reboot has just been revealed, and it puts the new Terminator (and his surprising identity) front and center amidst some fire and pretty terrible Photoshop. They couldn't figure out a better background than that plain gray, Sears portrait studio color scheme? There's already so much fire around Arnold Schwarzenegger and company, why not just engulf the whole poster in flames? And by that, I mean it should be set on fire, because it's just awful. Look below!

First Knitted Teaser Poster for M. Night Shyamalan's Horror 'The Visit'

The Visit

If you happened to catch Unfriended in theaters this past weekend, then you may have been treated to a bit of a surprise, which is rare these days. Universal Pictures decided to release the teaser trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's horror film The Visit in theaters exclusively this weekend without any pomp or circumstance. It will be available online this Thursday, and in the meantime, a cool, knitted teaser poster has arrived for the film that marks The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable director's return to horror, hopefully with a good film this time. The trailer is creepy, but you'll have to wait a couple days before you see it. Look!

Whoa! Choose Your Side - First Two 'Batman v Superman' Posters

Batman v Superman Posters

And here we go… Zack Snyder has tweeted out the first two posters for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will be handed out at the IMAX events this Monday, April 20th. And they are awesome. I love them both. The two posters, one for Batman and one for Superman (but none for Wonder Woman or Aquaman or Lex Luthor or anyone else… yet), which seem to have an Andy Warhol-esque design that also borrows from the Joker viral campaign for The Dark Knight. We all got to see the first teaser trailer a few days ago when it debuted online, so now we get a tease at more of their marketing and it's definitely going to rile a few people up. Take a look at both new BvS posters in full below - and tell us which one you prefer?

See All Three New 'Jurassic World' Posters Before the Latest Trailer

Jurassic World

So far, we've only gotten teases of the Indominus Rex, the genetically modified hybrid dinosaur at the heart of Jurassic World, from the park's viral website, the first trailer and the Super Bowl spot. But soon we'll see even more from the latest installment of the Jurassic Park franchise as a brand new trailer for the sequel/reboot will arrive sometime on Monday, April 20th, the same day as the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice IMAX trailer event. And leading up to the release of the new trailer, three new posters will be making their way online, and the first has Bryce Dallas Howard facing off with the Indominus Rex.

The Jolly Roger Flies on a New Poster for Joe Wright's Fantasy 'Pan'

Pan

With May just around the corner, the summer of blockbuster is starting to heat up. And while we've still got a couple months to wait for some of the later releases in the season, the official start of the most profitable time of the year for Hollywood will bring plenty of hype for the films on the way. This time we've got a new poster for Pan, the fantasy adaptation from director Joe Wright, which means there may be a new trailer on the way as well, especially since we've only seen one trailer for the film, and that was back in 2014. None of the film's stars like Hugh Jackman are featured, but that's actually somewhat refreshing. Look below!

Drew Struzan's 'Star Wars' Saga Posters Get the LEGO Treatment

Star Wars LEGO

Over the next couple weeks, there's going to be a lot of Star Wars goodies that start surfacing online. This week brought the arrival of the entire Star Wars saga on digital home video for the first time ever, and next weekend will be Star Wars Celebration, where Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy are going to kick off the convention, and there are rumblings that's where the new Episode VII trailer will debut along with the first official teaser poster. But until then, we thought we show off some cute LEGO recreations of artist Drew Struzan's iconic Star Wars saga posters.

Paul Bettany as The Vision Gets an 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Poster

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

Following a proper reveal of Paul Bettany as The Vision in a heavily Photoshopped image of all the heroes in The Avengers: Age of Ultron yesterday, the new character finally gets his own character poster. The design of The Vision is pretty fantastic, and I can't wait to see him in action, something we haven't see in the trailers despite a tease of the character at the end of the most recent trailer. I'm very anxious to see how he fits in with the rest of the superhero team, especially since he seems to be the most otherworldly superhero besides Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Just a few more weeks before we see him on the big screen. Look now!
