Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer Poster

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer Poster

This new poster for Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer has been making the internet rounds, so I guess I should say something about it, right?

What I find most interesting about the poster is that it makes clear that the silver surfer is the biggest drawn of the new film and is going to be a major character, on par with any of the actual members of the FF. I like this strategy because, honestly, the first FF wasn’t very good. And I really need a good reason to think the new one will be better.

It also follows the same general visual style of the posters from the first two films:

The marketing for SM3 has focused on the internal conflict between the “good” and “dark” sides of Spider-Man. The posters try to convey this conflict, but by keeping the same style used in the posters for the earlier films they also reassure the audience that this new film is very much like the other ones which they already loved.

And the posters look very cool. So, a job well done.
