One Sheets This Week: Jason Bateman’s ‘Bad Words’ Include Very Profane Movie Poster
Jason Bateman’s directorial debut Bad Words has a somewhat interesting premise and double meaning. The film, about an adult who bucks the system to continually enter Spelling Bees and forms an offbeat relationship with one of his competitors, promises laughs with a predictable ending. I don’t need to see the film to discern that much. Still, the way that the movie is being sold through posters is an interesting one. People will see cats, roosters and donkeys on the poster film art and wonder what the heck they mean. Alas, a little credit to an open mind and their meaning is simple. I’ll give you credit and not break it down for you in laymen’s terms. We also have a profane artistic version of a one sheet among five for your movie weekend. Enjoy the film and posters. Thanks to IMP for the drops.
One Sheets This Week: ‘Need For Speed’ Movie Posters & Character Shots
In what Hollywood hopes can become another Fast & Furious adrenaline-fueled, speed junkie franchise, today marks the debut of Need For Speed. You can already envision future titles, N33d for Sp33d, Need 4 Speed and Need for 5peed. You get the idea. The film, based on the popular video game series, has already posted stellar reviews, earning 21% rating on the T-meter. The plot and premise are likely pointless, its the cars and the action that will drive audiences. Additionally, Aaron Paul, fresh off his star-making role on TV’s “Breaking Bad” (never seen, but I’m told it’s strong), is hoping for a change of pace and perhaps, perhaps a Paul Walker-like run for his career. Music/Hip-Hop artist Kid Cudi, aka Scott Mescudi, makes what I believe is his acting debut as well.
Here are several movie posters for the film, hoping to set your movie weekend off right. There are character posters and even foreign one sheets mixed in. Thanks to IMP for the drops. Enjoy the poster film art color palette and if you see NFS or any film this weekend, may it be a worthy one.
One Sheets This Week: Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson in ‘Captain America: Winter Soldier’ Movie Posters
Captain America: Winter Soldier is the follow up to the first Captain America movie and the most recent Avengers Assemble film, which was one of the highest grossing films ever made. The film is due to drop on April 14th and will undoubtedly be one of the biggest films of the year at the turnstiles. Here we have multiple movie posters from the film, some character posters, one sheets with all of the key players, promos of just the tattered shield and more. You can see ScarJo and Chris Evans (a one-time pair off-screen) in their various forms here. Sam’s Nick Fury and Anthony Mackie’s Falcon also included. Thanks to IMP. Enjoy.
One Sheets This Week: Paul Walker’s ‘Brick Mansions’ Movie Posters Contrast
Throughout the years in this column we’ve looked at tons of movie posters, motion posters and more. We’ve even compared the difference between how one sheets are used to sell movies both here and abroad. This week’s look focuses on two distinct posters for the recently, tragically deceased Paul Walker’s last movie Brick Mansions. The film itself stars Walker and RZA, you can have a look at the trailer here.
More importantly though, we can see how the poster film art is used and the film is being touted in America (through the obvious use of star power) and abroad (with a more poignant shot of the actor leaping from a building). These posters feature the same building and essentially the same scene/thing (an actor jumping from the structure) but they are done so very differently. One is more generic (the US version), the other far more interesting and stylish IMO (the foreign model). This is just another way that shows how differently films are sold as well as how cool things could be here if we weren’t living in such a star based society. What is right or wrong? That is for you to decide. Enjoy your movie weekend. Thanks to IMP for the pics.
One Sheets This Week: ‘Godzilla’ (2014) Movie Posters Attack
The would be summer blockbuster Godzilla, which has never been done before, at least has some cool movie posters to stare at. While the film may be a dud – hey we don’t know that yet – at least the one sheets are worth taking a peek at. Can Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston and Oldboy‘s Elizabeth Olsen get you into theaters? Unlikely. Can a monster that makes King Kong look pequeno do so? Probably. If you’ve read the script leak, there is a lot of “ROARRR!!!” in it. You’ve seen the trailer, now have a gander at some poster film art to make your movie weekend. Can you wait for this movie to come out? The anticipation has to be killing you. Can you pick out which poster below is fan made? I’d tell you but you can decide for yourself, it’s more fun. Thanks to IMPAwards and enjoy.
Darren Aronofsky’s Russell Crowe-Led ‘Noah’ Movie Trailer & Poster Debut
Here are the brand new movie poster and trailer for Black Swan and Requiem For A Dream Director Darren Aronofsky’s Russell Crowe vehicle “Noah”, based on the biblical telling of Noah’s Ark. The poster recalls “300″ in vibe, while the trailer echoes thoughts of most epic films (Gladiator, etc.), but that is not necessarily a bad thing. 300 was a visual treat that did big business and Gladiator notched an Oscar for Crowe, who has since kind of fell on hard times at the box office. Hopefully, this is a rebirth for a talented actor and continuing growth for an equally-skilled director. Check them out.
We haven’t seen a good or hihgly innovative motion poster in a while, but that streak has been broken with the unique poster for Carrie, starring Chloe Moretz. The poster has several quadrants with all kinds of different things going on within each section. This is one of the more unique uses of the motion technology for a movie poster that we have seen unleashed on the web. Check out the full list of movie posters or search for motion poster on our site to find out several more instances. Enjoy the poster!
Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudekis ‘We’re The Millers’ RedBand Trailer & Movie Poster
Jennifer Aniston plays a stripper and one-time rumored romantic partner Jason Sudekis a loser who decides/has to smuggle some weed into the US from Mexico. We’re The Millers RedBand Trailer & Movie Poster is below for your viewing pleasure. Seems pretty much a standard run of the mill comedy, some decent humor, even a phallic shot and a potty mouthed Aniston to help steal the show. This one should truly test how well Aniston fares at the box office, though it seems she is kind of been veering down this more “risky” path for a while.
A drug dealer heads across the U.S./Mexico border with a large stash of weed while pretending to be a family man in this road-trip comedy starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis.
