Top 10 Plus 5 Hollywood Movie Posters Of 2012

Top 10 Movie Posters

This time we’re diving into the subject of what some consider a cool form of art: it’s our top ten plus five list with everything from cool to school and everything in between. Hit the jump for the random top 10 plus 5 top list.

Dredd

Dredd - Poster

Judge Dredd was all but solidified in this teaser poster. Karl Urban’s Dredd as seen here is a mean lean mother who hides in the darkness waiting to make a judgment – even he would put this poster under arrest for disturbing the plain poster peace.

The Cabin in the Woods

The Cabin in the Woods - Poster

The one-sheet for Drew Goddard helmed film The Cabin in the Woods is one of 2012s few whose design instantly doubled as an unofficial logo. The cabin as Rubik’s Cube may seem obvious and simple, but it rightly promising a mad puzzle of a horror picture. The vintage model eventually misses the true triumph of this campaign: a deceptively indelible signature image, defined by twists and turns.

Argo

Argo - Poster

The Ben Affleck thriller based on the true accounts of American Embassy workers escaping Iran in the late ’70s conveys to the viewer that someone was trying to hide something .

Argo’s teaser poster is restrained enough to not show its star’s eyes and not really explain anything about the film – the way a good teaser poster should.

The Master

The Master - Poster

The Master features what appears to be a wine bottle submerged in water, bringing to mind the themes of alcoholism and drowning. The unique presentation and bold styling are enough to make this poster stand out.

Paul Thomas Anderson’s cryptic teaser poster for The Master is about as inexplicable as the film itself.

Django Unchained

Django Unchained - Poster

I couldn’t help, but love this minimalist poster for the Quentin Tarantino’s new flick – eye-catching, simple, memorable. That’s all you need.

The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises - Poster

One of the iconic images of 2012 is that of the Batman logo in negative space, framed by Gotham’s skyscrapers in the midst of their destruction.

Skyfall

Skyfall - Poster

Here’s a black-and-white beauty that handily puts Brad Pitt’s Chanel No. 5 ad to shame. This classic shot appears pulled from a fashion magazine, and yet has all the bravura one would expect from 007. No title necessary as you know the number, and you know the hallmarks, from Big Ben to that gleaming Aston Martin, plus Daniel Craig in an expertly tailored suit, and 50 years of the world’s best spy leap out at you.

The Wolverine

The Wolverine - Poster

The dark, broad brush strokes pop against the pure white background turning this image from a promotional item into a true work of art. Going with this artistic style inspired by Japanese ink paintings and calligraphy was a smart decision by Twentieth Century Fox, as The Wolverine will be set in Japan, of course.

This Wolverine teaser poster is perhaps the best on this list — seriously goddamn cool!

The Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-Man - Poster

This poster for The Amazing Spider-Man manages to tell the viewer exactly what the film is about, without using the title of the film anywhere on it, but used shadows and lighting to nicely create the illusion of four limbs becoming eight to form the iconic Spider-Man symbol; presumably, the shadow from the thorax onwards is cast by Andrew Garfield’s stupendous quiff.

Stoker

Stoker - Poster

The first poster for Park-chan Wook’s English language debut is an immensely detailed treasure, a purposely unnerving part-drawn and part-collage pencil effort that offers clues to the film in a way that few other one-sheets can rival.

Seven Psychopaths

Seven Psychopaths - Poster

Binoculars? Check. Bottle o’ booze? Check. Dictaphone? Check. Looks like a writer to us.

Man of Steel

Man of Steel - Poster

This special Comic-Con poster gave die-hard Superman fans all they needed to know: a picture of their hero in his super duds and a shadow that indicates it’s going to be much more Nolanesque than Superman Returns.

Looper

Looper - Poster

If you want to sidestep the irritating problem that the two actors you’ve hired to play older and younger versions of the same character don’t look all that alike, just put one of them upside down on the poster. That way, anyone trying to compare the two at the bus stop will require either a very bendy neck or a large mirror.

Hitchcock

Hitchcock - Poster

Conveying Hitch’s own morbid sense of humour through a handily placed kitchen knife and Anthony Hopkins’ knowing look of disapproval, this poster is clever enough to not actually tell you that it’s the one-time Hannibal Lecter in the fat suit. That way, as you to smile at the ‘Good evening’ tagline, you’ve already made a mental note to head to the internet to find out more later.

Ted

Hitchcock - Poster

Clean lines, crisp text, and great use of color are all combined to let the viewer know what the movie is going to be about – a teddy bear coming to life and interacting in the real world.

How can someone not be interested in seeing a film where the cuddly CGI main character is using the lower urinal while holding his beer and standing next to a live actor?

GODZILLA Images From Comic-Con Leaked

Godzilla Teaser Header

Back in July at San Diego Comic Con a teaser trailer played to audiences for Monsters director Gareth EdwardsGodzilla.

The footage was supposed to be open to the public, but became hidden somehow.

Meanwhile, the long-anticipated film has actually not begun filming, but two images have made it’s way online and feature some of the destruction that we can expect in the movie, along with a glimpse of the giant monster.

The movie is reportedly deep in pre-production and director Gareth Edwards who has been hard at work ‘mapping out his vision for the movie’ will start shooting the movie in March of next year with aim for a May 16th, 2014 release.

Producer Dan Lin recently pointed out how this will be a ‘grounded, realistic version’ that ponders ‘what would happen if Godzilla came into our world today.’

2014 can’t come soon enough. .. Happy New Year! 2013 is going to be great!

HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS 3D Trailer!

Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters

Why not start the new year with a completely new trailer for the upcoming Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters movie? Good decision. After all, Tommy Wirkola‘s dark spin on the classic fairy tale opens in four weeks, so I guess that now is the right time to see what’s up with our favourite bounty hunters – Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton!

Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters Image 01

Wirkola directed the movie from a script he wrote together with Dante Harper, and as you already know, the movie will center on Hansel and Gretel who are now bounty hunters dedicated to exterminating witches. So-called expert hunters, or something like that.

Beside Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters also stars Famke Janssen, Peter Stormare, Derek Mears & Thomas Mann and the movie is set to open on January 25th, 2013.

Over the years, Hansel and Gretel became expert hunters, famous for their proficiency at tracking and taking down their prey. Although still recovering from their ordeal, their work is relatively easy as for an unknown reason harmful spells and curses do not work well against them. The Mayor of Augsburg recruits them to rid the town and nearby forests of an evil sorceress who is planning to sacrifice many local children at the witches’ gathering during the upcoming ‘Blood Moon’ night in two days time. To make things worse, the duo also has to deal with the brutal Sheriff Berringer who has taken power in Augsburg and conducts a very indiscriminate witch-hunt of his own.

At the end of this report, little reminder: in case you’ve missed, you can check out two fresh TV spots for the movie right here.

Let us know what you think, and stay tuned for more!
