Soon the movie world will be blessed by a new iteration of the well known Predator franchise. I sure love the original movie to death but I am not quite sure if the new one can promise what the old one fulfilled. (Just for your info: I didn’t even care to watch any of the sequels or mash-ups.) So, the Predators teaser poster I just found on various movie news sites just is like I feared it to be: the idea itself is great because we all love and fear those nasty bastards but the execution of the idea is mediocre at best.
Not using this movie blog for some shameless self-promotion is as if James Bond would stop wearing or showing off product placements. Not only would the financial crisis get worse, but also this blog would have one post less to boast on Google.
This cannot happen!!!
On the other hand, is it bad to rely on a double fantasy for men and women to justify ones actions? After I consulted my doctor about it this night (he was thrilled…by my call) and after I asked the buddy cops that arrived some minutes later I knew it: no one gives a shit!
Thanks to them it’s time again for a little bit of creativity. You know, my creativity. You know, my creativity which I snitched from here and there. A little…
I think the internet watchers new-fashioned-ly call this remix. Well, at least it didn’t turn out to be a reboot Hollywood is so hot for. Have fun watching the psychedelic ride…
The gap between an idea and its execution sometimes can be as large as the empty lot between the ears of a clichéd horror movie chick.
Do you still remember the horror Schumacher brought us with his abysmal Batman movies? I still cringe by the very thought of it (all those flashing lights and nasty designs…eek).
Thank god the franchise got a reboot and got a treatment the way it should be treated forever: dark and gritty.
And basically, this is what my newest movie poster art is all about.
One thing is sure: some movie posters I create are definitely not fit for marketing. If it comes close they could be used as teaser posters that spark thousands of questions in the mind of the viewers and therefore do their job. Most often, though, my posters are for those who already have seen the movie and hence understand the underlying meaning.
The movie poster I created for Slumdog Millionaire is such an example.
