Wednesday Poster Round-Up Featuring the new poster for The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo

1. Paranorman: Grade C+

I usually don’t like any taglines, but for whatever reason, I think this one is good for this fun little poster.

2. The Look: Grade B-

Charlotte Rampling is always a striking, regal presence. Her beauty has gracefully aged, and is on stark display in this poster.

3. The Woman in Black: Grade B

There is nothing new about this poster, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t creepy.

4. Vysotsky: Thank God I’m Alive: Grade B

Is there a better combination of colors than Black and Red? It can make even the most banal posters stylish and sexy.

5. Chilling Romance: Grade B

It is odd, and slightly disturbing. I love the innocent touches, and the soft purple.

6. Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol: Grade D

This poster is so boring that without the title I’d think it was an ad for a clothing line.

7. Elevate: Grade B+

Vibrant colors, with a traditional African art feel, coupled with a modern looking text gives this poster a fresh look.

8. Return to Zero: Grade B+

There’s a sleek elegance to this poster that’s accentuated by the vertical line used as a subtle artistic flair.

9. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo: Grade C+

Unfortunately, not as provocative as the first poster, it bypasses the sex and bluntness of the first, and takes a more traditional route this time, including a terrible tagline.

10. Snow on tha Bluff: Grade A

Raw, and poetic, the skin is the story, beautiful and shocking, its scars, its warpaint, its sorrow.

  1. John in Seatle WA

    I’m loving that Snow On Tha Bluff poster. I’ve never seen a thug portrayed with such raw emotion. You can tell he’s hungry, sad, intelligent, and calculating.

    That movie looks to be like the next Paranormal Gangsta movie ! LOL

  2. Nce observations – right on the nose! The poster for M:I, GP is totally upstaged by the single photo of Rampling, who looks deceivingly dangerous. (Substitute a gun for her camera and she could blow away tbe Cruise crew!)
