Avengers Infinity War poster

If you’ve paid attention to studio-produced movie posters over the past couple of decades, you’ve probably noticed that many of them are hideous images that are basically Photoshopped to oblivion. While Marvel Studios tends to make enjoyable, crowd-pleasing movies, the studio is often one of the worst offenders when it comes to creating posters. For a movie with as many characters as Avengers: Infinity War, it was practically a given that the poster would be overcrowded and kind of an eyesore – but we didn’t expect it to have an easily-preventable error in plain sight.

Take a look at the flaw below, along with a batch of new Empire Magazine covers featuring some of the film’s heavy hitters.

Ready Player One tickets

Ready Player One is a big deal because it marks director Steven Spielberg‘s return to big budget science fiction, a genre he hasn’t genuinely dabbled in since 2005’s War of the Worlds. And after the movie’s mostly positive reception after its debut at this year’s South By Southwest film festival, fans are more excited than ever. Now you can turn that excitement into action: Ready Player One tickets are on sale right now, and if you order through Fandango, you can get a free poster that’s better than any of the other posters the film has received thus far.

Ready Player One posters

The end of this month will see the release of the anticipated adaptation of Ready Player One. The novel from Ernest Cline is coming to the big screen courtesy of director Steven Spielberg, who seems like the only director who could pull off a pop culture mash-up of this scale – especially with all of its key references to some of the most iconic blockbusters ever made.

Now a new set of Ready Player One posters ups the ante when it comes to mashing up nostalgic movies from decades past. Each of the posters takes the film’s digital characters and places them on the poster of a beloved movie from the past. Back to the Future, The Breakfast Club, Beetlejuice, Blade Runner, The Goonies, Risky Business, and more posters were fully recreated with Ready Player One‘s game avatar characters from The OASIS.

Solo Poster Designs Stolen

Solo: A Star Wars Story has already faced some trouble behind the scenes with director Ron Howard replacing duo Phil Lord & Chris Miller in the middle of production. While the first teaser trailer for the movie helped squash some concerns, some new woes for the Star Wars spin-off have surfaced, this time for the film’s marketing department.

French artist Hachim Bahous is claiming that the designs for the character posters (released by Disney and Lucasfilm when the teaser trailer arrived) were lifted from artwork he created for a series of compilations albums from Sony Music. When you see the comparison between the posters and the album artwork, the similarities are unmistakable. Were the Solo poster designs stolen? Judge for yourself below. Read More »

Every new piece of marketing from Ready Player One has felt like a game of “spot the Easter egg.” The newest poster for Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of Ernest Cline‘s sci-fi book is an Easter egg unto itself.

The latest Ready Player One one-sheet pays perfect homage to some of the most iconic 1980s movie posters from the legendary illustrator Drew Struzan. But if you were looking forward to another Easter egg hunt, don’t worry. This Ready Player One poster is chock full of them.

Skyscraper poster

Why yes, that is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson attempting to leap from a giant crane into a shattered open window of a huge building. And no, his new summer blockbuster Skyscraper is not set in the same universe as the Fast and Furious movies (that we know of). This is an entirely separate action film in which an outlandish decision like this is justified and rewarded, and I can’t wait to see if the Super Bowl trailer that’s coming this weekend lives up to the preposterous promise this poster holds.

Take a look at the full-size Skyscraper poster below, because it somehow gets even more ridiculous when you see the entire thing.

Winchester giveaway

Confession time: I don’t handle ghost stories very well. I lost my damn mind during The Conjuring, and I still remember emerging into a dark and foggy street after seeing the first Paranormal Activity and being jumpy for a few hours.

But I may have to psyche myself into seeing Winchester, the new horror film starring Helen Mirren and Jason Clarke, when it comes out on Friday. In the meantime, we’re hosting a giveaway of prints of an alternate poster for the movie that was designed by celebrated artist Daniel Danger, who’s done some incredible work for companies like Mondo over the years. Take a look at the full poster and learn how to enter our Winchester giveaway below!
