We’ve got a bunch of new posters today for films that are, if not all over the map, at least hitting all corners of geekdom. First up, there’s the premiere of the one-sheet teaser for Zombieland, and it’s pretty tasty. It looks kinda like the Picturehouse logo and the cover of The Pixies’ Bossanova got together and had a little poster baby. How could that be bad? Answer: it isn’t. Much better than floating heads, zombie eyes and a splash of blood.
After the jump, a new Toy Story 1 & 2 re-release image caught in the wild, and images for 9 and the long-awaited US release of Taxidermia.
Steve at Collider snapped an image of this combo image for the Toy Story 1 & 2 double-feature 3D re-release event that starts on October 2 of this year. No big surprises here: cute alien from the films, 3D glasses on three eyes, notes that it’s a double feature. Yep, all bases covered.
I don’t really know what’s going on with the very pixellated new image for 9; seems like it must be part of a pseudo-viral marketing campaign, but I’ve been doing my best so far to remain ignorant of the film. Seems like 9 is going to be a better experience if I go in cold, and I’d like to preserve that inasmuch as possible. So enjoy the image and sound off in the comments if you want to explain it to the rest of the class.
Finally, there’s a neat image from Taxedermia. Peter mentioned the trailer the other day in Page 2; I’m a bit baffled by the fact that this movie is finally getting released in the States. I saw it in 2007 and was amused and entertained, if not bowled over. But if you want some crazy images that push a few boundaries of what you normally see released to theatres, this is definitely a movie for you. Fire ejaculation, grotesque over-eating, bizarre taxidermy…all that, and more!
