New Posters: Kick-Ass at Comic-Con, Richard Kelly's The Box
A couple of new posters have hit the web today. The first one is the official Comic-Con poster for Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass (via Ain't It Cool News). The poster was drawn by John Romita Jr. and will be given out at the Con for those interested. The second one is an updated and finalized version of the poster for Richard Kelly's The Box (via Twitter), that we featured a trailer for a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, I still don't like the poster, mainly because I hate how huge Cameron Diaz's face is in comparison to the other elements on the poster. You can see the original version of The Box poster here for comparison. Check them out below!
As explained on AICN, that Kick-Ass poster is just for the hardcore fans (of the comic). Eventually we'll see a real poster, but as of right now, the movie isn't even setup at a studio (it was funded and developed entirely by Matthew Vaughn himself outside of Hollywood). As for that poster for The Box, I know it has kind of a Twilight Zone feel to it and everything, and I like the placement of Frank Langella right down the middle with the red stripe, but I absolutely hate Cameron Diaz's giant face. I think it completely ruins a poster that could have otherwise been great. I'm still looking forward to the movie, but this poster is trash.

The Kick-Ass poster is really awesome, can't wait for that movie. Apparently they're showing a bunch of footage at comic-con, should be great. I'm a little bummed they changed Big Daddy's Costume though, but what ever. As for The Box poster.... I'm glad i'm not the only one who thinks her giant face on it is stupid.

Funny. I thought the same thing about her head being so huge. Not very flattering I must say.

The Box seems like a film which could be ruined by poor marketing.

For a movie featuring Cameron Diaz and called the Box, shouldn't the shot be about 3 feet BELOW her head? Now James Marsden, Frank Langella and Diaz's Vagiant. THAT'S how you market a movie mofos!

My first thought was towards her big head making the poster horrible, and then I scroll down to see others thought the same as I did! lol
