Battleship Indie Poster

The summer really kicks off this weekend as The Avengers assemble, but for months we've been inundated with plenty of posters, trailers and more for films like The Amazing Spider-Man, Prometheus, Men in Black 3 and The Dark Knight Rises (watch the stunning new trailer right here). But for those who are sick of the slick blockbuster promotions, perhaps it's time for a new approach to these films that will hit the big screen during Hollywood's busiest season of the year. Next Movie has taken ten of this summer's most anticipated blockbusters and gives each of them their own indie movie poster. Look!

Here are Next Movie's indie posters for some of this year's top blockbusters:

Summer Indie Poster - Prometheus

Summer Indie Poster - The Amazing Spider-Man

Summer Indie Poster - G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Summer Indie Poster - The Expendables 2

Summer Indie Poster - Total Recall

Summer Indie Poster - Men in Black 3

Summer Indie Poster - Snow White and the Huntsman

Summer Indie Poster - The Dark Knight Rises

Summer Indie Poster - Battleship

Summer Indie Poster - The Avengers

Honestly, it's a little disconcerting that the worst posters out of this batch are for the most anticipated films of the summer (my least favorite posters are for The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man). But that Battleship poster is better than all the shit they've thrown out for that film so far, and the Snow White and the Huntsman poster is pretty damn cool as well. Meanwhile, it's cool that G.I. Joe: Retaliation looks like a poster for The Hurt Locker (and that's probably the idea), which would've been a completely different movie with Dwayne Johnson. Which is your favorite?

The Avengers poster is hilarious. I literally lol'd when I read it.

'Snow White and the Huntsman' is more or less the only one that works... for me at least. (P.S. WTF is up with 'The Avengers' poster?!)

It's a parody of the Kids are All Right.

The first four are horrible - just still shots with no creativity.  The Avengers one is atrocious.  Are these real posters? The others are fine.  The Battleship one is awesome.  Still not gonna see the movie, though.

"Are these real posters?" Lol

Did you even read the article? It's a parody.

This was great. Last one looks kinda fugly though.

I didn't realize Thor was being played by Dog the Bounty Hunter

Does an Indie poster mean that it is just a poster that doesn't have the actors heads airbrushed onto previously posed model shots with the most boring typography you could ever imagine?

the avengers- the kids are alright?

Makes sense given the Ruffalo connection.

Captain AMericas costume works well in a "indie comedy" like Super or Kick-Ass or whatever 😉 Not that well in Avengers.

Ryderup on May 3, 2012


THANK YOU!!!! I'm glad someone else sees that! It looks SO BAD!!

Prometheus is so Criterion ready. The Avengers was pretty funny.

Johnny Neat on May 3, 2012


The Avengers and GI Joe are—in my opinion—the most successful. People need to abandon the board game aspect of 'Battleship' for chrissakes.

Voice of Reason on May 3, 2012


... "For Barny Ross growing old peacefully isn't an option" that just made my day xD The Avengers one is so lame, even more than the Battleship one...

Loved the fake Prometheus poster! Charlize

Davide Coppola on May 3, 2012


Prometheus and The Amazing Spiderman were great.
