1. The Son of No One: Grade B
Channing Tatum has a mustache. I’m not sure if this is a comedy or not. The poster itself is actually pretty good though, in a bit of a minimalist way.
2. Kaboom: Grade B+
I have a hard time believing there is a more befitting poster for this film. It is a great blast of colors and images, albeit the images seem a little redundant and superfluous, but the over-the-top nature of the poster is great.
3. East Fifth Bliss: Grade B
The best part about this poster is the details surrounding Michael C. Hall. Without knowing anything about this upcoming film, it would seem as though Hall’s character is in his childhood bedroom, possibly entertaining a fantasy, or an actual woman.
4. Never Let Me Go: Grade C
This poster has a similar look, in terms of the dreamy color and landscape as other posters for the film. But this poster has a triteness, and sappy melodrama to it that the other posters didn’t have.
5. X-Men First Class: Grade C-
There isn’t much to it, but it does have an attention to detail that most teaser posters of its like don’t have.
6. Brotherhood: Grade B+
Here is another poster that is a little ham-fisted, but it sets a mood with its suggestive image, and the muddy color.
7. Les Yeux de Sa Mere: Grade C+
The photo strip look is a little different in representing random images of actors (that, as you know, I typically dislike) and for the most part it is boring as usual with this poster, but there are little details that separate it, such as Catherine Deneuve, and Marina Fois’ eyes.
8. There Be Dragons: Grade B+
It may be a little over dramatic but it looks great. The old term ‘negative space’ is on display, coupled with the gritty use of color.
9. The Disco Exorcist: Grade A+
This week we have two Posters of The Week, starting with this little nugget of beautiful absurdity. There is nothing to describe, it’s all right there, from the smirking tag line to the gory splashes of color, perfect poster.
10. Septien: Grade A+
Insanely enough the second Poster of The Week is more crazy than the first. You can lose yourself in the loud, colorful, yet crude images that vomit forth. This is a comically disturbing poster.
