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.
Star Studded ‘Blood Ties’ Trailer with Retro Looking Movie Poster Looks Good
Finally there is another movie to possibly get excited about (yet sadly, a quick glance at IMDB says otherwise..hmm). Blood Ties, from co-writer James Gray (Two Lovers) and directed by Guillaume Canet making his English language debut. The film is set in 70′s Brooklyn with a look and feel that based on the trailer and poster below, feels spot on. A brief desciption of the film:
Two brothers, on either side of the law, face off over organized crime in Brooklyn during the 1970s.
Those two brothers are played by Clive Owen and Billy Crudup (still wondering why he doesn’t get more roles). One’s a cop (Crudup) and one is a criminal, who may or may not be trying to change. Kunis and Cotillard star as love interests (solid choices at that). Have a look for yourself.
The Movie Poster and Trailer For Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘Only God Forgives’ Debuts
Only God Forgives might not have been on the radar quite as much as it deserved prior to this unveiling, but now after having seen the cool poster (below) and trailer (also below) for the Ryan Gosling led feature, all that will change accordingly. The team has re-upped their partnership after the success of the ultra cool Drive (2011) and you can already kind of envision a potential muse-like partnership akin to Leo DiCaprio and Martin Scorcese taking place here. This film looks to be a bloody good time, but I won’t ruin it for you, I’ll let you decide for yourself. Have a look and feel free to chime in with your thoughts.
New ‘Iron Man 3′ Super Bowl Commercial Teaser & Movie Poster Arrive
Just days away from Super Bowl Sunday, where ticket sales are lagging for the actual game, but where appetites are always high for the notorious commercials that air on the big day, particularly during the game itself. Marvel has let loose an Iron Man 3 poster and teaser video for what we should see from the long-form commercial. Though the spot is literally only 12 seconds long, we get a glimpse of additional plot information as well as Don Cheadle in full body armor and different angled shots of the carnage unleashed by Ben Kingsley’s Mandarin villain. Couple the teaser with the poster, which shows Iron Man falling upside down to an unknown fate and we have some added intrigue leading up to Sunday’s larger reveal and of course May’s ultimate revealing when the film arrives. Check it out and let us know what you think. Enjoy!
