Whether New York City wants it or not, it’s getting a visit from four very unusual heroes this summer. So we might as well get to know them before they arrive.
Jonathan Liebesman‘s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has revealed four new motion posters for each of the four heroes in a half-shell. The emphasis here is really on “motion” — they’re jam-packed with explosive stunts and daring rescues. Check ‘em all out after the jump.

The new movie from Ridley Scott, Exodus: Gods and Kings, is meant (I believe) to be a serious re-telling of the story of Moses leading the Israelites out of Egypt. So why do these first Exodus posters make the movie look like an awkward cross between Batman Begins and 300? Why does Joel Edgerton, in particular, look as if he should be in the header photo from one of those Gawker stories about inappropriate Halloween costumes?
Choosing Christian Bale to play Moses and Edgerton for the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses has already inspired some discussion about casting these white dudes as figures who, in all probability, were not white. Perhaps the trailer, landing later today, will help inform that discussion somewhat. But the posters are leading the charge when it comes to establishing an identity for this movie, and they’re doing a terrible job.

There’s a lot of news today about television efforts from Steven Soderbergh. First, there was the cast info for his Amazon pilot Red Oaks, which Soderbergh is producing and David Gordon Green will direct. Now we’ve got a set of character posters for Soderbergh’s Cinemax show The Knick, which premieres later this year. The show stars Clive Owen as Dr. John W. Thackery, a forward-thinking surgeon at the New York Knickerbocker Hospital at the turn of the century.
A set of posters for the show supports the set of trailers we’ve seen so far, and gives a spotlight to many members of the supporting cast, and also to what appears to be an impressive attention to detail on the part of the wardrobe and production design departments. Additionally, Soderbergh has been talking about the show, and says that the bracing experience of making the first season has him eager to to a second. Read More »
Later today, we’ll get a new trailer for the highly anticipated thriller by David Fincher, Gone Girl. To tease that, 20th Century Fox released a bunch of teaser images from the film. Kind of. They’re not exactly posters, not exactly stills, more just intriguing items in poster form to make non-fans scratch their heads and fans wink with a knowing delight.
The film, which opens October 3, stars Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck as the seemingly perfect couple. That is, until Pike’s character disappears and it looks obvious Affleck’s character killed her. But did he? That question opens Pandora’s box of twists, turns, and screwed up stuff that director David Fincher should make fly. Check out the new Gone Girl images below and check back later today for the new trailer. Read More »
20th Century Fox has given us an web-exclusive illustrated ”Hail Caesar” poster for Matt Reeves‘ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to premiere this morning. The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes illustrated poster was created by UK artist Matt Needle, putting the spotlight on Caesar, the leader of the apes played by Andy Serkis in the film via performance capture.
