JoBlo brings us this new poster for AvP, and it’s with much chagrin that I have to admit that I kind of like it.
After the first AvP turned out to be such a massive disappointment I promised to myself that I wouldn’t care about the sequel. And I still don’t, not really. But the image of earth with an Alien and a Predator gripping it did manage to get through to me and to remind me of why I was excited about the first film. I think it’s a great image, and certainly is something that can be used to build the campaign upon.
That said, the poster has too much open space. You have the main image at the top, and then the title and credits at the bottom, but nothing in between. I think this compromises the general look of the poster.
I also note that they decided to use the abbreviated title on the poster. Understandable, since Alien Vs. predator: Requiem is such a long title. But I’m still not sure I like it. AVPR isn’t exactly memorable.
