Even as fans and critics rave about Captain America: Civil War and all the new characters it brings, Disney is getting ready to introduce its next new hero into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the superhero of the same name, an arrogant surgeon who, while attempting to heal himself after a devastating car accident, stumbled into the discovery of magic.
Directed by Scott Derrickson, the movie promises to venture into the more mystical corners of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And much to fans’ relief, the set photos have strongly suggested that the film won’t back down from the weirder aspects of the character and his many bizarre adventures. The very first Doctor Strange trailer is due to arrive tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live, but to tide us over in the meantime, Marvel has just dropped the very first Doctor Strange poster. Check it out below. Read More »

Now that Batman v Superman has come and gone, X-Men: Apocalypse is going to spend the next two months leading up to its release doing everything in its power to grab and keep your attention. That means new trailers (and trailer breakdowns), featurettes, photos, and even hell freezing over. Seriously, the marketing for this movie is going to a blitz. You’re going to see James McAvoy‘s freshly shaven scalp everywhere you go.
A new batch of ten character posters advertising the film have arrived, offering close-ups on the film’s main characters. And yes, everyone is looking straight into your puny, human soul.

The more we see from Duncan Jones‘ Warcraft, the more compelling it looks. While fans of the video game were divided over the first trailer, which featured unfinished VFX, the last extended TV spot presented a more tactile glimpse at the world Jones and all involved have crafted. The orc, in that TV spot, was completely convincing, and so was the environment it was fighting in.
To get another close-up look at the film, check out the new Warcraft character posters below.

There’s a whole lot about Kingsman: The Golden Circle that sounds new. Eggsy (Taron Egerton) will be heading across the pond to America for this new adventure, meeting new friends (like Ginger, played by Halle Berry) and new foes (like Poppy, played by Julianne Moore) along the way. But there’ll be a few familiar elements as well, including Merlin (Mark Strong). And the first Kingsman 2 poster suggests another old friend has joined the fray.
(Spoilers ahead, though it doesn’t look like the marketing team is exactly going out of its way to keep this particular plot point under wraps.) Read More »
The sci-fi thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane has been in theaters for nearly a month now, and if you haven’t seen the movie, you’re missing out on one of the most riveting, suspenseful flicks of the decade. A big part of what makes the movie so captivating is that it keeps you guessing the whole way through. You never really know what’s happening or whom to trust until the very end of the movie. Which is why some new marketing materials from overseas are a bit frustrating.
The international marketing campaign for 10 Cloverfield Lane apparently doesn’t care about keeping the mystery intact and somewhat misleads the audience as far as the film’s story is concerned. A new trailer and poster for the film’s forthcoming release in Thailand completely ruins the 10 Cloverfield Lane ending. Find out how after the jump, but obviously, beware of spoilers. Read More »

You don’t have to be a fan of a movie to dig a great movie poster. With the internet currently embroiled in the great Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice war (our own Peter Sciretta is on the side of the dissenters, as is David Chen), the good folks at Mondo has offered an olive branch of sorts. Whether you like the movie or not, surely we can all agree that this new poster from the great Ken Taylor is pretty darn cool, right? Because if not, what kind of world are we fighting for in the first place?

Even if the excitement for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is high for plenty of fans, I think we can all agree that the marketing campaign has left something to be desired. Not only have the trailers not been cut all that well, but the posters have been pretty unremarkable as well. Thankfully, Poster Posse has delivered some original, incredible artwork to pay tribute to the first big screen face-off between the Bat of Gotham and the Son of Krypton.
Below, we’ve gathered some of our favorite pieces from Poster Posse’s call for artists to give the battle of the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel their own artistic flair. Pretty much all of these pieces are better than any of the theatrical posters we’ve seen so far.

I’m a magic geek, so I was excited to see this new batch of Now You See Me 2 posters which pays tribute to classic magic posters. Much cooler than the very-blue and generic-looking character posters released last month. A new trailer for Jon Chu’s magician heist sequel will hit sometime on Wednesday, and these magical posters were released to help to build buzz for that magical reveal. Hit the jump to see the old-style magician Now You See Me 2 posters.

Yesterday brought our report straight from the set of Captain America: Civil War when the film was in production in Atlanta, Georgia last June. Along with that came a batch of posters for all the characters on Team Cap, as well as an interview with stars Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan. But that was just the beginning of our Civil War coverage this week.
There are rumblings of a new trailer for the Marvel Studios sequel arriving this week, but in the meantime, we’re running interviews from our set visit all week. Today we’ve got interviews with Robert Downey Jr., and some good stuff with Chadwick Boseman, a.k.a. Black Panther. But right now we’ve got a batch of new Captain America Civil War posters showcasing Team Iron Man, and one can’t help but notice they’re a man short when facing Team Cap. Read More »
