By looking at this poster I now know that it stars Jane Fonda, Lindsay Lohan and Felicity Huffman. It also tells me that the marketing people think that Lindsay’s image has been so damaged that Jane Fonda is actually the main attraction of the movie.
Overall, not a very interesting poster, is it?
This poster reminds me a little of this Zathura poster:
I don’t think this is a comparison they want.
Also, the poster boasts that the movie comes from the producer of “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”. I understand the relevancy, but that was a long time ago. I doubt that the kids who are the audience for this movie know anything about Close Encounters.
Overall the poster doesn’t do much for me. Two kids looking at a strange symbol that has no meaning for us. So what?
They should have used the bunny more.

Oh, I like this poster. Sure, I liked the first movie and I’m a sucker for horror posters, so feel free to ignore me. But I really think this is one of the good ones.
There are two elements in this poster that I particularly like. The first is that it keeps the sun drenched, desert hell look. This look was a very important part of the last movie. It gave it a certain personality, I think.
The second is that although it doesn’t show anything thing violent or gory, it does give us a very good feeling for the kind “bad stuff” we can expect to happen in the movie. It automatically gives us the knowledge that whomever is going to be lost in the desert this time is in for one bad ride. And that is the kind of thing that gets me into the theater.
Feel free to call me a sicko now.

Thanks to this Russian website we now get to take a look at some character posters for FF:RotSS. And they are … heady.
The Silver Surfer one that I posted below looks kind of cool, because the Silver Surfer character looks (much to my surprise) kind of cool. But I doubt this head posters are doing much to anyone besides the most fanatic FF fan.
