Poster Watch: Holmes, Hell, And A Hot Samurai Chick


A trio of high profile (well two you know and one you’ve never heard of) posters have arrived on the scene in recent days.  One tries to capitalize on it’s star, another goes for a literal interpretation of it’s title, and the last highlights a tiny pair of hot Asian butt cheeks.

First up is the advance poster for Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes.  Star Robert Downey Jr. is the entire focus here which is a smart move.  He’s looking pretty sweet with the sunglasses and pipe as he emerges from (or fades into) the darkness. [via Trailer Addict]


Next is the admittedly cool poster for Sam Raimi’s return to comedy, Drag Me To Hell.  I caught an advance screening a couple weeks ago at SXSW and thought it was pretty funny.  The poster’s artwork is incredibly vibrant and attention-grabbing, although from the look on Alison Lohman’s face I’m wondering where the fourth demon hand is and what it’s doing… [via ShockTillYouDrop]


Finally, we have the poster for what is bound to be the biggest blockbuster of the three.  Samurai Princess is described as an “erotic grotesque action film” and features effects from the people who brought the world Tokyo Gore Police.  The title character is a “female ninja mechanical doll equipped with 11 types of built-in weapons.”  So, yeah.  I’ll be watching this one.  [via QuietEarth]


What do you think about these posters?  Which is your favorite and why?
