Two Movies Get New Posters

July 9, 2007

the-comebacks.gifTime to start the day off with some poster exclusives.  Well, I guess they’re online exclusives anyway.  I’ve actually seen this first one at my local movie theater already.

The film is The Comebacks, which is about a football coach with the worst record in sports history, played by the hilarious David Koechner, as he vows to turn things around with a new group of recruits made up of losers and misfits.  It is more or less a spoof of all those feel good sports films.  I’m actually surprised Will Ferrell isn’t involved since he’s been all about sports comedys with several of his past works.  Anyway, if you want to check out the fill version of this poster, click on over to Coming Soon.

The next poster is for Australian release of a new horror film.  About a crocodile.  Again.  I don’t know really see the interest in these movies anymore.  I’m mean sure maybe the first few of its kind were scary, but you can only do so much with the subject before it becomes boring and lame.  This one is called Rogue and it’s basically about this American journalist, on assignment somewhere in the Australian outback, that encounters this ‘rogue’ crocodile.  The poster for it is here.  It’s got a very Jaws-esque feel to it.  It will premiere in the States in October of this year.

New Poster For ‘Mr. Magorium’

July 5, 2007

magoriums2.gifI told you about Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, which stars Dustin Hoffman, Natalie Portman, and Jason Bateman, last week. The movie is about a magical toy shop, well there is more too it than that but in general the focus on the toy shop.

Now, Rope of Silicon has gotten a brand new poster for the movie, which you can see in larger form here. The poster looks to be geared more towards the kiddies, but the trailer has me interested. If you haven’t watched it, go and do so now.

Another Childhood Cartoon Franchise To Ruin, Here’s ‘The Chipmunks’

July 3, 2007

alvinchipmunks.gifI really had no idea this movie was in the works, but it’s far enough along to have it’s own poster.  Dave Seville is coming to the big screen along with Alvin, Simon, and Theodore.  I realize some of you may be unfamiliar with these names so let me explain.

These are characters from Alvin and the Chipmunks a popular cartoon series from my youth.  Basically Dave played dad/manager to these three singing chipmunks.  I know that might sound kind of lame, but I actually liked the show when I was younger.  Anyway so they’re making a live action movie out of it and there’s now picture of the poster online(click for a bigger version over at Coming Soon).

Here’s my problem with it.  I can’t help but think about how terrible the Garfield movies were and the upcoming Underdog movie looks just as bad.  Underdog should look like this, not like this.   I actually don’t think the chipmunks look that bad in the poster, they aren’t too realistic but they still don’t look much like the originals.  They are using the original voice talent at least.

I am a fan of Jason Lee (My Name Is Earl) so I hold on to some hope that this will turn out to be decent.  It’s due out December 14 of this year.

I know this kind of turned into a rant, so forgive me.

Brand New ‘Invasion’ Poster

July 3, 2007

invasionposter.gifI’ve been telling you a little bit about The Invasion, an update on the old Invasion of the Body Snatchers.  The trailer makes it look good, so I’m definitely looking forward to seeing this one.

Now there is a new poster for the movie.  It’s kind of creepy, but mostly just weird.  Someone went crazy with the red and white and I’m not sure what they were trying to achieve.  Click the pic for a larger version (which is over at Cinematical.)
