Invasion Teaser Poster

Invasion Teaser Poster

Now that is a teaser poster. Doesn’t really show anything, but still conveys a sense of pervasive and immediate danger. And it gets you curious. A job well done.

I can’t be the only one who was immediately reminded of this other, completely unrelated poster:

Anyway. The new Transformers poster is nice enough. They seem to have decided to not show the robots or the action too much on the promotional material, which is probably a good choice. Save something for the actual film.

New Golden Compass Poster

Golden Compass Teaser Movie Poster

Oh, I really like this poster. It properly portrays a sense of wonder and of fantasy, and hints at a possibly epic scope. And it has a giant bear, which is cool.

My only worry is that the poster might be a little too reminiscent of the Narnia film. The book this movie is based on is popular, but not on the same level as the Narnia, LotR or Potter books. I wouldn’t be surprised if some people who do not know the book confused this for a sequel to The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

Then again, considering how much money LWW made, this could be seen as a plus by the marketing department.

The Golden Compass is one of the films I am cautiously looking forward too. The director, Chris Weitz, has absolutely no track record with this kind of film (you probably know him as one of the directors of About a Boy). So it’s hard to tell what the movie is going to be like. It could be another great fantasy adventure, like the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings films, or it could be an complete mess.

This poster is, of course, not enough to give us a clear picture of what the movie is going to be like. But is a sign in the right direction.

New BUG Posters

BUG Poster 1

I’m not sure how I feel about these BUG Posters. I mean, I do like the way the look. They are weird and creepy and definitly grab your attention. But I’m afraid they might be a little too esoteric. They look like a poster for some David Lynch surreal extravaganza. And altough I love watching those kinds of movies, my impression from what I have read is that BUG is a little more grounded, so to say.

But, I haven’t actually watched the film. And considering that this is one movie that will probably have a hard time getting any traction, perhaps a weird surreal looking poster is really the best way to go.

Via JoBlo, which has the REALLY big versions.
