The second trailer for Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End will hit the Web on Wednesday. In anticipation of that event, two new posters have been released. One is another UK banner and the second is our first US one-sheet. Each are similar in that they show Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman and Eddie Marsan mugging for the camera, but now Rosamund Pike‘s character has joined the group. And Pegg is raising a pint, tying in the drinking element, leading to the new tag line ”Barmageddon Begins.”
There’s even a tease of the film’s villains: human citizens with lit-up eyes suggesting they’ve been taken over by some kind of alien force. We’ll likely know more about them on Wednesday. For now, check out the two new posters and read a Q&A Wright did where he reveals a bunch of tidbits about the film. Read More »

David Lowery‘s film Ain’t Them Bodies Saints was one of the best films of this year’s Sundance Film Festival. IFC will bring it to theaters in August, and the film is screening in Cannes this weekend. Along with that screening we’ve got a new teaser poster for the film, painted by the director’s brother.
The poster, by Benjamin Lowery, shows the film’s central couple, Bob Muldoon (Casey Affleck) and Ruth Guthrie (Rooney Mara). They live together as outlaws, but Bob takes the blame for one of Ruth’s actions during a shootout with cops and goes to prison. Four years later, Bob escapes and makes his way back to Ruth and their daughter.
Ben Foster and Keith Carradine also star, but for right now we’ll keep the focus on Bob and Ruth, with Ruth rightly taking prominence on the poster. See the image after the break. Read More »
Say what you want about Star Trek Into Darkness, but it’s had a lot of posters. Teaser posters, IMAX posters, character posters, the print campaign for the J.J. Abrams sequel has been incredibly extensive and diverse. Star Trek is such a vivid property, however, that there’s always room to go further.
One website brought together several up and coming pop artists to reinterpret the film with their own unique style. The results range from minimalistic and eye catching, to exaggerated and exciting. Others are realistic and lyrical. It’s a cornucopia of Trekkie goodness. Check them out below. Read More »
Earlier this week, The Hunger Games franchise joined the photo based social network Instagram and following the account is already paying dividends. The account revealed the next poster for the highly anticipated sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. On the poster Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), the newly crowned co-victor of the Hunger Games, is standing on a bluff looking down on the world. That’s pretty much where the world puts her at the start of this film, which is something President Snow (Donald Sutherland) is not too happy about. Check it out below. Read More »
UPDATE: We’ve added a second new Man of Steel Poster below the jump.
There’s been a ton of Man of Steel imagery this week and the latest poster kind of combines it all. The iconic “S” symbol is layered with the speeding silhouette of Henry Cavill‘s Superman shooting up to the sky, creating a very powerful image. The film opens June 14. Check out the new poster after the jump. Read More »
August: Osage County, a Pulitzer Prize and multiple Tony award winning play, is hoping to become a multiple Oscar-winning film. Directed by John Wells (The Company Men), the film has one of the most impressive dramatic casts in recent memory: Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Benedict Cumberbatch,Margot Martindale, Chris Cooper, Dermot Mulroney, Juliette Lewis, Abigail Breslin, and Sam Shepard. They’ll bring to life a story about a group of young women forced to go home and deal with their parents. A simple story to be sure, but a powder keg for emotion and drama.
Don’t believe me, though. Check out the trailer and poster for the November 8 release. Read More »
One of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood is that major movies use fake titles when they’re in production. The purpose of the misdirection is to throw the general public living and working around the shoot locations off the scent of a picture that might have huge fan interest.
Thirty years ago, Star Wars fans had no idea the Return of the Jedi was being filmed near them because it was called Blue Harvest. Even today the practice continues. People would riot if they knew Christopher Nolan was filming The Dark Knight Rises in their town, so the film goes by the name Magnus Rex. (Not that it takes long for people to realize what’s up.) Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 are being referred to as Freezer Burn and London Calling respectively.
A Reddit user has made a gallery of movie posters using the film’s production titles and it’s quite funny. Check it out below. Read More »
