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 »
The first season of Netflix’s Daredevil took ages to put Charlie Cox in costume, only giving the devil of Hell’s kitchen proper superhero duds in the season finale (and for a single action scene). And even then, the outfit was controversial, with some fans grumbling that he should have just stuck with the pirate pajamas look from the rest of the season.
The mixed reactions to Matt Murdock’s uniform haven’t stopped fans from wondering if season two’s new characters, Frank Castle (better known as the Punisher) and Elektra Natchios (better known as, uh, Elektra) would get to wear their classic costumes. A newly released poster answers that question: yes. For the most part.

While AMC’s The Walking Dead continues to grab headlines left and right as it casts strong actors as frightening villains and riles fans up with wacky plot twists and big developments, Fear the Walking Dead has just been kind of sitting there. The first season of the spin-off, which turns back to the clock to the earliest days of the zombie apocalypse and takes place on a separate coast entirely, received mixed reviews from fans and critics alike. Every joy came coupled with a frustration, which really is the Walking Dead experience in a nutshell.
With Fear the Walking Dead returning next month, AMC has released new key art that seemingly teases the focus of the new season. Yep, it’s time explore the zombie apocalypse from a boat.

Not only are Alamo Drafthouse theaters known for being spectacular places to see all sorts of great films from today and years past, but they also allow you to toss back a cold one while watching them. And when Richard Linklater‘s latest film, Everybody Wants Some, debuts at SXSW next week, it will be followed in a few weeks by the movie’s own official beer fro Austin Beerworks.
If there’s one movie that deserves to have its own beer, it’s the spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused, which brings us a story about college life in 1980. But if you’re not of age to drink, or you just hate beer, there’s also a cool new Mondo poster for the movie that has just been unveiled in conjunction with the forthcoming Richard Linklater gallery show.
Find out where and when you can get the Everybody Wants Some beer and see the Mondo poster for the movie below. Read More »
Paramount Pictures and IMAX have given us the opportunity to debut the IMAX illustrated poster for 10 Cloverfield Lane created by a UK artist Kevin M Wilson, who goes by the pseudonym Ape Meets Girl.

Abrams-produced, Dan Trachtenberg-directed thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane, which hits theaters nationwide on March 11th, 2016.

I haven’t been shy about lavishing praise on High-Rise, the latest piece of deranged and extraordinary madness from director Ben Wheatley, but I also haven’t spared the caution. This film isn’t going to be for everyone, but for a select group of adventurous movie fans, it’s going to be one of the best absolute best films you experience in 2016.
Because the film itself has proven so divisive, much of the marketing has focused on the one thing everyone can agree on: the stellar cast. A new batch of posters have arrived, showing off stars Tom Hiddleston, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, and Jeremy Irons. But since this is High-Rise, these character posters are just a little skewed.
