Hot on the heels of the movie’s first, full trailer… here’s a brand new poster for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The trailer made it clear that this is basically an alien invasion flick. Think Battle: Los Angeles except set in Chicago and with robots fighting on our side instead of just Aaron Eckhart. Also, unlike Battle: LA this movie actually has an effects budget. That means Michael Bay gets to blow things up, and apparently fold skyscrapers in half.
Here’s the new Dark of the Moon poster:
There’s a lot going on here, but most of it should make sense if you’ve seen the trailer. I’m pretty sure that pile of parts laying at Optimus’s feet is his flying gear. Yeah, Optimus Prime can fly now. That was in the trailer, though it went by so fast you might have missed it. We have screencaps of his high-flying antics here and here.
The Warner Bros. advertising team is working its ass off right now making up for lost time. In the last few months the folks behind Green Lantern have been trying to get the CGI to the point that they can make the film marketable and in recent weeks they’ve accomplished it. But just like when you un-pinch a hose and all the water shoots out, now that the studio has something to work with they’ve been releasing images and posters non-stop. Earlier today a banner poster showing off a cross section of the Green Lantern Corps was released and now we have yet another new poster.
Yahoo! has posted yet another new one-sheet from the film, which now makes five in the last week alone. Like the banner from earlier, this particular piece of art work shows off more than just Hal Jordan from Sector 2814 (a.k.a. Earth, for the non-geeks), but only shows off Sinestro, Kilowog, and Tomar-Re, all of whom recently got their own character posters.
Check out the poster below or in high res over on Yahoo!
Though it contains an irresistible sci-fi premise– a “mirror Earth” is discovered behind the sun, populated by what seem to be alternate versions of every person on our own Earth– the low-budget film is much more of an intimate drama, about a young woman (Marling) responsible for killing a man’s wife and child in a car accident. Years later, as Earth II grows larger in the sky, she reconnects with the man (William Mapother) and attempts to make amends in the kind of circuitous, unsuccessful ways characters in indie dramas tend to do. I enjoyed some things about the film and was frustrated by others– you can read my video review from Sundance along with Erin McCarthy for more on that– but it’s a film that asks a lot of questions and contains some genuine emotions, which is a lot more than you can say for most of the movies hitting this summer.
Another Earth opens in limited release on July 22. You can also see the film’s first poster below.
Odds are you know by now that Morgan Spurlock has a documentary coming out this Friday– the director previously behind Super Size Me has been ubiquitous in the last few weeks, following through on his promise to make POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold what he calls “the Iron Man of documentaries.” Funded entirely by product placement, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold is in fact about product placement, following Spurlock as he meets with potential investors and tries to talk them into sponsoring his film.
The result is a movie that’s twisty, informative and very funny, the kind of engaged documentary that only Spurlock is capable of making. POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold is in theaters this weekend, and to celebrate it we’re giving away one poster for the movie, signed by Spurlock (it’s the poster you see below, plus a signature). To enter, log in to your Facebook account and “Like” our Facebook Fan Page and then simply leave a comment on this contest post. Tell us if you would go as far as Morgan Spurlock did– wearing a suit emblazoned with all the logos of his sponsors– to get your movie made. Entries will be accepted until 12 noon EST on Saturday, April 23.
The winner will be notified via Facebook direct message and asked to provide their mailing addresses (no P.O. boxes please). The poster will be mailed directly to the winner. No purchase necessary. Failure to comply with the rules will in disqualification and subsequent mockery. Good luck!
Here’s a new Green Lantern character banner, this one featuring Tomar-Re. No, he isn’t a sea monkey. Tomar-Re is an alien and a member of the Green Lantern Corps, which Ryan Reynolds’ Hal Jordan character will join in the film, once he puts on his ring. Tomar-Re befriends Hal, even trains him. You’ll probably see a lot of him in the new movie.
Here’s Tomar’s poster. Or should I call him Mr. Re?
