New Posters for ‘Neighborhood Watch,’ ‘Natural Selection,’ ‘To the Arctic 3D,’ and ‘The Lady’

Written by on February 28, 2012 

Fox isn’t always great when it comes to selling things even a little bit outside the box, so seeing them handle a sci-fi comedy should be more than a little interesting. Neighborhood Watch has a big cast filled with marketable names — Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and Billy Crudup, among others — but getting people interested in a movie that pits those guys against antagonistic aliens might take more creativity than, say, another Planet of the Apes.

Is the first poster going to get things off on the right foot? I’ve actually got no clue, but being the first material most will even see from the film — and, in turn, the first time most people will hear of it, too — I’d wager that a decent job is done. There’s a little intrigue, some of those big names, and not nearly enough in the way of explanation to give much away. We could be in a much worse position, is what I mean.

Directed by Akiva Schaffer, Neighborhood Watch will open on July 27th. You can see the poster below via the official Facebook page:

Going into slightly smaller territory, UpcomingMovies have presented a new poster for Natural Selection. We praised this film when it played in competition at last year’s SXSW — they even quoted us in the trailer — so you can probably understand my own curiosity in the Robbie Pickering-directed dramedy. It won’t hit limited theaters until March 16th, and, not living in an area that normally gets a film of this sort, I’ll have to wait.

While sitting on our hands in patience, you and I can appreciate the poster below:

Then there’s something completely different from either of those two — though we’ve talked about a sci-fi comedy and festival favorite, so maybe I’m not saying much. But, anyway, Yahoo has presented the first poster for To the Arctic 3D, one of the latest nature documentaries released into theaters because it’s narrated by a big celebrity (this time around, Meryl Streep). Here’s how they summed it up:

“A journey to the top of the world, To The Arctic 3D is the ultimate tale of survival. The film takes audiences on a journey into the lives of a mother polar bear and her two seven-month- old cubs as they navigate the changing Arctic wilderness they call home. Capturing intimate footage that brings moviegoers up close and personal with this family’s struggle to survive in a frigid environment of melting ice, immense glaciers, spectacular waterfalls, and majestic snow-bound peaks.”

But you probably could have guessed that it would follow something along those lines from the outset, anyway. Take a look at the poster below. The movie opens on April 20th:

Just in case you forgot this film even existed (I did!), Apple has debuted a new, possibly final one-sheet for Luc Besson‘s The Lady. The story of Burmese civil rights activist Aung San Suu Kyi (Michelle Yeoh) has been getting a lot of trailers and some Shepard Fairey posters for months and months; somehow, it still doesn’t come out until April 13th. This latest is much more conventional than our other ones, but I’m starting to think that those behind the film know they have something fairly conventional on their hands.

Are you impressed by any of these posters? Which film do you want to see the most?
