That first big batch of orgasmic Nymphomaniac posters was eye-catching for obvious reasons, and appropriate as the first public face for a movie that is probably going to me the most explicit non-porno most people see in the next year. But they were so over the top as to be almost comic. (See any of the many Brady Bunch photoshops to make the point.)
These two new posters are much more restrained, and are far more creepy for it. Sure, the “crop-as-heart” idea is pretty easy to digest, but what’s the fishing hook all about? Ew. That’s just off-putting. See them both in full below. Read More »

Last week, a three-poster array from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 leaked out that answered a major question about Marc Webb‘s sequel. The poster confirmed the film features at least three villains, including Dane DeHaan as the Green Goblin (as well as Paul Giamatti‘s Rhino and Jamie Foxx‘s Electro). At the time though, the images were only low-res. Now, Sony Pictures has released the high resolution, official images, and you can blow them up and dissect the images to your heart’s content. Check them out below, along with a new synopsis.
UPDATE: Five new images, not from these posters, have also come online.

Walking around Las Vegas, a Twitter user spotted what appear to be three new posters for Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Together, they form one huge image of Spidey fighting Electro and Rhino, and there even seems to be a Goblin in there too. Are these legitimate? They certainly look like it, and if they’re not, someone hire this Photoshop artist asap. Check out the tweets below. Read More »
Sometimes we’ll post concept art for posters, and sometimes that art gets pulled, or doesn’t get used in favor of more bland compositions. People always wonder why, and while the answer is often complicated we’re rarely flush with all the details.
Here’s a case where we now know a lot, thanks to the artist in question. You may remember that early this year poster designs for Spike Lee‘s Oldboy hit the internet. They were great — very striking, very violent, and very strange. They were pulled, and the official art was, in the end, a lot more tame.
Here’s where it gets messy. The artist, Juan Luis Garcia, claims that he was never paid for his work. So why is Garcia writing to Spike Lee? Because this week, Lee posted some of Garcia’s designs — the ones he was never paid for — to his own FaceBook page, with a note on each saying “C 2013 Spike Lee.” Read More »
Each member of the news team has already assembled on their own character poster, and now it’s time for the new additions. Paramount has released three new character posters for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues featuring Kristen Wiig‘s character Chani, Meagan Good‘s character Linda Jackson and James Marsden‘s character, Jack Lime. Check them out below. Read More »
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we’ve now heard buzz on almost all of the major Fall releases. Two we’re still a bit in the dark about, though, are David O. Russell’s American Hustle and Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street. That’ll surely change in the coming weeks as each release is quickly approaching, but Paramount has begun to build the hype for Scorsese’s latest. Commercials have started airing for the Christmas release and now several new images, a clip and two awesome posters have made it online.
The Wolf of Wall Street opens December 25 and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey among others. Check out the new media – which includes some awesome behind the scenes looks of Scorsese in action – below. Read More »

One of the advantages of an animated sequel is that the characters never really have to get older if the filmmakers don’t want them to. They can even regress in age, as Sulley (John Goodman) and Mike (Billy Crystal) did for this summer’s Monsters University, twelve years after Monsters Inc. first came out.
But the folks behind How to Train Your Dragon 2 have chosen to keep their characters aging more or less in “real” time, so the sequel features a handsome, grown-up Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) rather than the bumbling teen we met in the first film. His trusty companion Toothless, however, remains more or less the same. Check out the new teaser poster after the jump.

We here on /Film have been covering pop culture art long before it became what it is now. Years ago, Mondo posters sat on their website for days at a time, Gallery 1988 shows didn’t have people camping out overnight, and eBay wasn’t a wasteland of people buying posters only to turn a profit. By consistently being passionate about the world, we likely contributed to the simple thought of “That poster is cool” turning to “I will kill someone to get that poster, so help me God.”
During that time the hype increased, new galleries opened, talented artists emerged, prices inflated, and several people have made movies about the various facets of the poster craze. Just Like Being There traced its roots in the gig poster scene, Officially Limited is exploring the legal ramifications and now a new documentary is doing a bit of both. It’s called Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six (the standard poster size in the poster collecting world) and will look at the history of the movie poster up through, and including, the current craze for limited edition collectibles.
