Paranormal Activity is really starting to stretch itself thin and spreading out into new territory is desperately needed. However I don't know if I want more of their invented story behind a demon possession. I'd rather see a series of unrelated demon possessions and haunting than a thin line of story attempting to string it all together.
I love the Muppets. Jim Henson built and handed me a wonderful childhood through his imagination and hard work and sitting atop the throne of my younger years are the Muppets. Seeing the new movie renewed my faith in humanity and knowing they were confident enough to make another further made me happy. This poster doesn't reveal much but slamming the movie with celebrities won't save it. The first was key to only have Segel and Adams as the main characters and regulate everyone else to minor characters or cameos. Hopefully they're treating this new one with as much reverence as the first.
I don't know how to feel about 47 Ronin. So many people seem super excited for this and yet a white guy as a samurai in a movie releasing on Christmas day doesn't fill me with confidence. I'm hoping this turns into something exciting and worth seeing but for now I'm just not giddy about it.
Some of these posters are made for fun. You won't be seeing this Hunger Games poster hanging up in many theaters but probably for sale on a website. Posters are now free advertising for movies and I don't think they want Hunger Games to fail, so swapping out their free advertising for this awesome art (which could even peak the interest of some people) just isn't going to happen.
We end this week with this terrific poster for The Last Days on Mars. It looks more like a 70s or 80s science fiction novel I would find on my brother's bookcase. It looks weathered and read through a few times. Even the color pallet reminds me of an old copy of Dune someone once handed me to read. Even if this turns out to be a forgotten attempt at sci-fi horror they at least know what they're doing when it comes to a badass poster.
