The Invitation Drafthouse

I had to include Karyn Kusama‘s The Invitation on my most anticipated movies of 2016 list. Even though I have already seen the film, I had to give it a shout-out. Kusama’s dramatic thriller is an excellent movie, a story that’s bound to grow richer on repeat viewings. With The Invitation opening in theaters next month, Drafthouse Films is kindly letting us debut the poster for the film.

Check out The Invitation poster below.

Finding Dory Posters

How can a forgetful fish, who doesn’t remember anything about her past, find her family? We’ll find out this summer when Disney and Pixar Animation bring their sequel Finding Dory to theaters.

So far we’ve only seen a little bit of the new adventure as Dory (Ellen Degeneres) starts to have flashes of her past, driving her to finally seek out her long-lost parents, who will be voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy. But a new trailer might be on the way soon, because we just got a batch of new Finding Dory posters that are very fitting considering the film’s title. Plus, these posters just showcase how beautiful Pixar’s animation has gotten over the year, and I can’t wait to see how the underwater environments for Finding Dory have improved in the 13 years since Finding Nemo was released.

the american dreamer mondo poster

Dennis Hopper is one the most fascinating figures in American cinema, a vital artist who rose so fast and fell so hard that his story has taken on a tragic aura. What would have become of the director Easy Rider if his second film wasn’t a failure? Would he still be in the same conversation as the likes of Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Brian De Palma, and the rest of their peers? These days, the late Hopper is remembered more as a character actor than as a filmmaker, with the tales of his off-set antics overshadowing his contributions to American New Wave of the ‘60s and ‘70s.

We’re pleased to premiere Mondo’s new poster for Lawrence Schiller and L.M. Kit Carson’s The American Dreamer, a cinéma vérité documentary tracking Hopper as he basks in the glow of Easy Rider and sets out to make The Last Movie, a film that would derail his career for years. The poster (which signifies a serious departure from Mondo’s usual style) celebrates the restoration and theatrical re-release of this widely unseen film, which will play in limited release in select cities and see a digital release later this month.

triple 9 character poster

Every year brings us a new batch of gritty cop dramas, but 2016 brings us a gritty cop drama from director John Hillcoat, the superb filmmaker responsible The Proposition, The Road, and LawlessTriple 9, looks to fall in line with his previous work: an ensemble of stellar actors in a morally bleak world enact horrific acts of violence on one another. We can’t wait.

We are pleased to debut a new Triple 9 character poster featuring the great Woody Harrelson and a piece of advice that probably applies to every character in any Hillcoat production.

We feature plenty of Honest Trailers around here, and now that the 2016 Oscar nominations have been announced, we want to call your attention to some of the Honest Posters created to poke fun at some of those in the running for Academy Awards next month.

Look! Read More »

deadpool fan art

Tickets for the Deadpool movie have officially gone on sale and Fandango is celebrating in style. In addition to letting the Merc with a Mouth take over their site’s homepage (which is now dubbed “Fandeadgo”), they’ve handed the reins of their Twitter feed over to this red-suited menace.

But most importantly, Fandango is using the release of this film to highlight the work of a few talented artists and will be unleashing more Deadpool fan art over the coming weeks. They’ve sent over a few exclusive samples, so prepare yourselves for edged weapons, Terminator parodies, and, of course, chimichangas.

the BFG poster

Only fools don’t eagerly anticipate Steven Spielberg movies and only a total cynic wouldn’t want to see one of the greatest filmmakers of all time adapt the work of the great Roald Dahl. So while it’s currently flying a bit under the radar, you should probably start looking forward to the arrival of The BFG, Spielberg’s first collaboration with Disney and his first live action family adventure movie since 1991’s Hook.

A new poster for The BFG has arrived and it’s lovely, teasing colorful imagery, a grand sense of scale, and name-dropping a Spielberg masterpiece that has more than once connection to this new movie.

forsaken trailer

As long as people have been making movies, they’ve been telling stories about outlaws returning home, trying to put their dark pasts behind them, and finding their talent for violence coming in handy when bad guys come calling. Nothing about director Jon Cassar‘s Forsaken looks particularly original or unique, but when you’re dealing with a genre as classical as the western, that may not be a bad thing. Sometimes, the same song performed by a fresh band can be mighty pleasing.

The obvious hook here is Kiefer Sutherland and Donald Sutherland playing father and son, but as you can see in the trailer below, the real attraction is the chance to watch an old school western that is seemingly free of pretense.

Suicide Squad Posters

UPDATE: A new poster has arrived with the team on the poster forming the smile of a face with X’s for eyes.

This week will bring another look at the second anticipated DC Comics movies of the year when a new trailer for Suicide Squad debuts during a Dawn of Justice League TV special airing on The CW. But before that new trailer arrives, Warner Bros. Pictures wanted to get the hype machine warmed up with a batch of cool new posters. And rather than just Photoshopping some character posters for the “heroes” with the cast, the marketing department has taken a preferred, stylish route by giving each member of the Suicide Squad their own unique skull.
