Two very different posters for (what I imagine are) two very different films have arrived. And, because we care about you, we have them to take a gander at.
The first of these is for Angelina Jolie‘s directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, and it comes from Yahoo. Like the film’s trailer, it’s both visually striking and aesthetically appropriate — basically, it’s selling the movie you’ll probably end up getting, and it looks good whilst doing so. It’s interesting that they can’t advertise the cast — nobody will jump at Milos Timotijevic, Alma Terzic, or Goran Kostic — but they have one of the most famous people in the world to rely on, and they’re the helmer. For some reason, I think that’s kind of nice.
Take a look below; the film opens in limited release on December 23rd:
Secondly, ComingSoon has a new poster for This Means War, a film that does something amazing: look terrible, but star Chris Pine and Tom Hardy. (The fact that a) Reese Witherspoon is the third lead and b) McG directed the movie isn’t actually a huge part of that, believe it or not.) To be completely serious, the only thought about this poster that I can even muster is a sense of confusion as to why they didn’t make the tagline “It’s spy vs. spy.” It’s not like that’s been copyrighted — the preview even used it. Oh, who the hell cares.
You can see it below, and see the film when it opens on February 17th:
Does either poster leave a big impression? Which film are you most excited for?
Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not […]
