New Posters: The Wolfman; Cop Out; Bong Joon-ho’s Mother; Percy Jackson Character Posters; and Mysterious Danish Short ‘Connected’
Posted on Thursday, January 14th, 2010 by Russ Fischer
There are a bunch of new posters this week, and easily the most striking of the bunch is the painted image for The Wolfman, created by legendary Famous Monsters of Filmland cover artist Basil Gogos. CHUD got the image as an exclusive; you can see part of it above, and click through for the full thing. It’s not my favorite Gogos by a stretch, but like his best paintings it is grotesquely colorful in a way that points a direct line to the cinematography in films like Suspiria. The fact that Universal got him to work with their remake is a great thing.
After the break, the poster for Kevin Smith‘s Cop Out, a new domestic poster for Mother, character sheets for Percy Jackson and The Crazies, and a great poster for a tiny, weird Danish post-apocalyptic Western called Connected.
IGN debuted the poster for Cop Out, and it’s more or less what you’d expect: the background color scheme and logo from the trailer’s title card, plus Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan. That tagline, though? (“Rock out with your glock out.”) Eek.
Love the poster for Mother, the 2009 festival sensation directed by Bong Joon-ho of The Host fame. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this film, a suspenseful picture about a determined mother who attempts to clear her son’s name after he is accused of murder, and it’s way high on my ‘must-see’ list. Movieline has the new poster, excerpted above.
Latino Review points us to three new character posters for Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. These look more like ads for a sequel to the PS3 game inFamous, but they’re decent images. Curious about this movie, which puts a modern spin on the same gods and monsters we’ll also see in Clash of the Titans. Click any of the three images for large sizes.
Finally, there’s this great poster for the Danish ‘sci-fi western’ Connected, which popped up on OMGPosters yesterday. A design studio called Barq created the image, and you can actually buy a print, though only 73 were created. It’s expensive, at €39. Check the Connected store if you’re interested. Here’s some more info on both the poster and the film. You can see a short, very pretty teaser for the movie at Twitch.
