Movie Posters

The World

You know what? It’s really just sort of nice to see Simon Pegg and Nick Frost looking equally terrified and silly on a poster together again, and what better production for them to bring their charms to than the final entry in Edgar Wright‘s Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy, The World’s End? The new quad poster features our favorite bumbling heroes amidst a possibly intergalactic firestorm and a horde of blue-eyed baddies, but the entire thing could just consist of their dumbstruck faces and a title and we’d be sold. Wright himself tweeted out the new quad poster, and it seems like he’s about as excited for this new film as the rest of us (which is very). The World’s End opens on August 23rd. Prepare and such.

Nymphomaniac Trier

Since we’ve already seen Charlotte Gainsbourg go to crazy sexual lengths for the director, there’s little reason to think that Lars von Trier‘s Nymphomaniac is as restrained as the new poster that Zentropa just released for the film. Either they were having a bit of fun or trying to appeal directly to a generation brought up by sexting, but either way, parentheses have never been sexier. It’s also unclear whether “coming soon” qualifies as an unavoidable pun for this particular project. Forget about love, and check it out for yourself:

Mondo

For years — literally since before it was cool and you could call the shop at the S. Lamar Alamo Drafthouse and check to see if they had a particular poster in stock — we’ve been covering the work of the folks at Mondo. We’re cinematic art hipsters like that. And over the years we’ve seen them do some really great things, including series-upon-series of actually licensed posters for Star Wars and Star Trek alongside hundreds of other properties. The diversity of the work is a testament to how hard these folks work behind the scenes to secure the rights to even do the art in the first place. Unlike the Wild West of Etsy, if you want to become a popular art boutique selling posters to fanboys, you need to get your legal documents in order. That’s what makes some of the work they do so impressive. Anyone could doodle a poster and print out a few copies, but securing the rights and curating art from some of the world’s finest working artists is something special. One of the key licenses that Mondo has worked with over the past few years is that of Marvel Studios. In conjunction with a number of great Disney properties and of course, those killer Star Wars prints, their recent success has been built pretty steadily in the past half-decade over their ability to secure the biggest names in characters — Captain America, Thor and even this week’s guest of honor, Iron Man. Speaking of the latter, this […]

poster band called death

The past couple years have seen a healthy stream of fantastic documentaries focused on the world of music. More precisely, Searching for Sugar Man, Paul Williams Still Alive and Sound City all entertained and enlightened by offering viewers a glimpse into stories from the past about people that today’s audiences have forgotten. The upcoming Drafthouse Films release, A Band Called Death, aims to do the same by re-introducing the world to a little-known but much respected punk/rock band from the early ’70s. They preceded bands we do remember but were forgotten to the ravages of time. It’s not just their timing that makes them stand out from the Caucasian crowd though… Check out the first trailer for A Band Called Death below.

VHS2

Forgive us if this new theatrical poster for the horror anthology sequel, V/H/S/2 didn’t so much terrify us as make us chuckle. “Who’s tracking you?” Oh, you maniacal little horror hounds, thank you for this, that clever sense of humor is what sets the talent-packed series apart from the rest of the scarefest pack, and we’re happy to see it represented in one-sheet form. For more V/H/S/2 goodies, give a read to Rob’s Sundance review of the film (he calls it “a shot in the arm for horror fans” and thinks “it would be great to see them continue to make it an annual tradition with new writers/directors sharing billing each time”) and Caitlin’s interview with the “Snack Pack” of directors behind the project. Such fun! V/H/S/2 hits VOD on June 6th and will be in theaters on July 12th. [Press Release, Entertainment Weekly]

hr_Iron_Man_3_36

Not sure if you’re going to hit a midnight screening of Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3? On the fence about doling out the cash for an IMAX screening of the latest adventures of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.)? Feel like your walls need some help looking their absolute coolest? We can fix all of those things for you. IMAX has long given out special posters for select midnight screenings, and while that tradition is (sadly) ending with next month’s Iron Man 3, they’re going out with one hell of a one-sheet. Designed by renowned comic book artist Jock, the very cool final poster will only be available to attendees of 12:01 IMAX shows of the film on May 3rd (and, you know, to people who are quick on the Ebay draw). Is your local theater participating? Find out by clicking here. [Press Release, via ComingSoon]

Tai Chi Hero Poster Debut

Last year, just before Fantastic Fest, we debuted a poster for the martial arts epic Tai Chi Zero. Sometime later, we reviewed the film at the Austin-based genre haven, only to find that it was fun, but also quite strange. Part of its oddity was the fact that its closing credits included a trailer for its already finished sequel, Tai Chi Hero. I remember personally thinking, “that’s the movie I want to see. The action-packed sequel.” A number of months later, that opportunity is upon us. And as Tai Chi Hero gears up for a theatrical release starting on April 26, we’ve come back with yet another exclusive poster debut. Well, a sort of debut. This poster, “Baby,” was released as part of the film’s Chinese release. This time though, it’s got English letters. So enjoy the debut of this brand new Tai Chi Hero poster’s English lettering.

poster ripd

One of this summer’s less-heralded comic adaptations is Universal’s supernaturally-tinged buddy cop flick R.I.P.D. starring Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds. The latter plays a cop who’s gunned down in the line of duty but comes back to life and joins a very special police unit. The Rest In Peace Department is staffed with undead law enforcement tasked with capturing evil souls, and with their help he sets out to find those responsible for his murder. If it sounds like a mash-up between Dead Heat and Men In Black it’s because it pretty much is a mash-up between Dead Heat and Men In Black. The film is based on the Dark Horse comic series by Peter M. Lenkov and hits theaters July 19th.

snowpiercer-characterposters-swinton-full

While Bong Joon-ho‘s upcoming Snowpiercer is set in a post-apocalyptic world where the only living survivors of a massive, ongoing Ice Age all live together on a trans-continental train that continually circles the globe, it looks like certain things haven’t changed – namely, that Tilda Swinton has still somehow managed to look insane, otherworldly, and completely engrossed in her character. Sure, there are some shades of Golden Girls here in this first set of character posters for the film, but this look at Swinton and the rest of the cast is eerily compelling. Just how bad are things on this train? (Yes, yes, pretty bad, as there is a revolution stirring.) After the break, check out the rest of the character posters, including Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Kang-ho Song, and Octavia Spencer.

poster oldboy spike lee

Director Spike Lee‘s upcoming Oldboy is viewed as a remake of Park Chan-wook’s brilliant 2003 film, but in reality it’s a new adaptation of the original source material, a graphic novel by Nobuaki Minegishi. The story remains the same, though. A man (Josh Brolin) is kidnapped and imprisoned for twenty years with no clue as to his captor’s motive or identity. He’s inexplicably released one day and given a limited amount of time to discover the answers to all of his questions, but he may not like what he finds. In fact, he most definitely won’t like what he finds. Oldboy co-stars Sharlto Copley and Elizabeth Olsen and hits theaters on October 11th. [Press Release]

STID Pine

Turns out, all of that Khan mumbo jumbo has just been some super-clever misdirection on the part of Paramount and J.J. Abrams, as this new series of Star Trek Into Darkness character posters reveals the film’s true nemesis – wind! Big, gusty, blowing wind! Somebody, put a goddamn helmet on! We are, of course, kidding (or are we?), but this batch of posters certainly puts wind power front and center, and with the highly anticipated sequel just about a month away from release, there’s little else to talk about beyond the silly stuff and our excitement over the new feature. Check out the rest of the new Star Trek Into Darkness character posters, including Benedict Cumberbatch as whoever, Zachary Quinto as Spock, and Zoe Saldana as Uhura.

much-ado-about-nothing_612x907

If you so happen to Google “Joss Whedon Much Ado About Nothing,” only a few scattered stills pop up and, most often, you’ll get a version of that one up top featuring Fran Kranz as Claudio. That submerged look at Whedon’s version of Much Ado About Nothing was the first peek we got at the project months and months ago so, really, why not keep it around for the film’s first poster? Oh, I don’t know, maybe because Whedon fans are rabid for more looks at the film? Let’s hope for something fresh next time around. Until then… Much Ado About Nothing opens on June 7th.

Arrested-Development-Michael-550x825

While it’s still hard to believe that we’re finally getting new episodes of the brilliant Arrested Development (thanks, Netflix!), it’s not hard to believe that the show has started rolling out funny and clever bits of marketing that make something like “getting excited about character posters” not seem insane. Instead of unveiling a set of stills featuring each member of the Bluth family in all their glory, the series has instead crafted a series of posters that use recognizable props that apply to each individual Bluth, so fans of the show will instantly be able to recognize their favorite star with ease (the one we want on our walls ASAP? Lucille’s classic pill bottle). Season 4 of Arrested Development arrives on Netflix in its entirety at 12:01 AM Pacific Time on Sunday, May 26th, so set your alarms now. Check out the rest of the “character” posters after the break. [Vulture, TV Line, IGN]

World War Z

Trick question. There are no zombies in this new poster for World War Z. Sure, there are probably plenty lighting the world on fire just below Brad Pitt‘s iron stare, and perhaps there are even a few in those swirling helicopters, but for a film that is about a zombie invasion, this poster sure as shooting doesn’t seem interested in presenting even one brain-chomper. Draw your own conclusions. World War Z opens on June 21st. [Paramount]

conjuring-poster

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but here’s a poster for a brand-new horror film that promises us that its story has sprung from some true life tales. Crazy, right? Well, perhaps a little less crazy than we’re used to seeing on the big screen. James Wan‘s The Conjuring is actually based on a case file from Ed and Lorraine Warren, noted paranormal investigators and demonologists who were involved with some of the world’s most insane supernatural cases. Remember the Amityville Horror? Yup, it was the Warrens who helped investigate that one. The Conjuring stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as the Warrens, dispatched with investigating “a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most horrifying case of their lives.” Sounds fun. The Conjuring opens on July 19th. [Press Release]

UPDATED: Now with one more new teaser poster! Did you want to go on vacation in our nation’s capital any time soon? Perhaps you would like to sit outside the Capitol Building, gazing up at the sky for no reason whatsover? Or to relive Forrest Gump on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial? Or to really just feel kind of fuzzy and out of sorts and typical in Washington, D.C.? Sounds like you’ve been tasked with populating the new teaser posters for Roland Emmerich‘s White House Down, starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx. Look! There you are! Just to the right! Suffice to say, it doesn’t seem as if the big budget was brought out for these first looks, but with the film’s first trailer dropping tomorrow, we’ll soon get a real taste of the year’s other “Die Hard in the White House.” The film also stars Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods, Richard Jenkins, Joey King, and Rachelle Lefevre. Check out the other teaser poster after the break. White House Down opens on June 28th. [Moviefone]

NYSM

Let’s hope that Louis Leterrier‘s upcoming magician film, Now You See Me, fares a bit better than The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, because the director’s latest star-studded outing just looks cool as hell. The film centers on “The Four Horsemen” (totally a cooler name than just “The Incredible”), a pack of illusionists who pull off some mighty cool (yup, still cool) heists under the guise of magic shows. Starring Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, and Dave Franco as the Horsemen and Melanie Laurent, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, and Common in other, probably still cool roles, Now You See Me should shape up to be a, wait for it, cool time at the movies. Check out its stylish new poster up above. Now You See Me appears in theaters on May 31st. [Press Release]

We are all just going to forget this poster for Zal Batmanglij‘s The East doesn’t exist (well, after we finish this post), because it’s a pretty poor example of the latest from the director and co-writer. The standard issue, face-heavy (and, honestly, are those pictures of stars Brit Marling, Alexander Skarsgaard, and Ellen Page just lifted from stills from the movie?) one-sheet for the new eco-terrorism thriller doesn’t do much to convey that it’s a smart, enthralling piece of work that will stick with you long after you’ve seen it. Here: The East is a smart, enthralling piece of work that will stick with you long after you’ve seen it. Goodbye, poster. The East opens in theaters in May. [BlackBook]

MBTD_FINAL POSTER

Do you think Sally El Hosaini‘s My Brother the Devil is any good? Not sure? Really? Why not just look a few lines up at the film’s new poster, which we’re pleased to exclusively debut here on Film School Rejects. See all that praise? See all those laurels? It’s fair to guess that the new British release (and Sundance and Berlin winner) is pretty damn good. El Hosaini’s debut film was crafted at three different Sundance Institute labs (Middle Eastern, Screenwriting, and Directing) and has gone on to make the festival quite proud. A tale of two different brothers – James Floyd as the mixed-up Rashid and Fadi Elsayed as his adoring younger brother Mo – My Brother the Devil chronicles the pair has they both attempt to work their way out of a life on the streets with different aims and different results. My Brother the Devil will open in NYC on March 22nd and Los Angeles on April 5th.

hr_The_Hangover_Part_III_3

Perhaps it was optimistic to think that the fair city of Las Vegas could possibly survive the third Hangover film, but the latest poster for The Hangover Part III promises that the entire joint will go up in flames, it will “all end” (a la Harry Potter), and either Zach Galifianakis or Ken Jeong won’t survive the outing. Don’t drink, kids, just…don’t. The Hangover Part III drunkenly stumbles into theaters on May 24th. [Warner Bros., via ComingSoon]
