New ‘Avengers’ & ‘Total Recall’ Posters; ‘Seventh Son’ Concept Art [UPDATED]

2 years ago by  

[UPDATE: We've added more posters and Images for Total Recall and The Avengers!]

We’ve collected up a small batch of promotional materials for three upcoming fantasy and/or sci-fi titles, including the red-hot-anticipated comic book flick The Avengers, Columbia Pictures’ updated take on Total Recall – and Warner Bros.’ latest fantasy novel-turned-movie adaptation, The Seventh Son.

On the Avengers front, we have yet another international poster for Marvel’s superhero juggernaut – which has literally been several years and movies in the making. Similarly, the first banner for Total Recall is now online, along with some high-resolution conceptual artwork for Seventh Son (which just barely began shooting this month).

The Avengers

Avengers sees Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor Odinson (Chris Hemsworth) and The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo, via motion-capture performance) all unite to save the world when Thor’s sociopathic brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) leads a mysterious other-worldly armada in an attempt to conquer Earth. Fan-favorite filmmaker Joss Whedon (Serenity, The Cabin in the Woods) is overseeing the massive project, which is estimated to have cost Marvel Studios some $300 million to produce.

UPDATE: Have a look at the latest international poster for The Avengers below, as well as some behind the scenes photos:

As you can see… well, this new one-sheet mostly amounts to a uninspired Photoshop job where the images of the various Avengers players have (seemingly) been lifted directly from other posters. Then again, we’ve already gotten so much in the way of thrilling advanced footage and serviceable promotional material for The Avengers that there’s little point in getting hung up on one underwhelming poster, right?

The Avengers hits theaters (2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D) around the U.S. on May 4th, 2012.

Total Recall

Colin Farrell headlines the Total Recall redo as Douglas Quaid, the futuristic everyman who rediscovers (or does he?) his past as a super-spy after undergoing a process meant to install false memories into his mind. Joining Farrell for the ride are folks like Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, John Cho, Bill Nighy, and Bryan Cranston, working under the direction of Len Wiseman (Underworld, Live Free or Die Hard) – from a script that sticks closer to Philip K. Dick’s short story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale” than that for the original Total Recall movie.

Have a look at the first banner for Total Recall (UPDATE: followed by the official poster & Motion Poster) below:

Similar to the scant bits of footage in the recently-released Total Recall teaser trailer preview, these one-sheets call attention to the darkly slick design of the film’s setting – while also teasing the idea that Farrell’s character is the sum of memories both real and imagined (via the visual metaphor of Farrell as a fractured man). It’s because of those elements that we have relatively high hopes for this particular reworking of a movie we’ve seen before.

Total Recall is scheduled for theatrical release in the U.S. on August 3rd, 2012.

The Seventh Son

Jeff Bridges (TRON: Legacy) and Ben Barnes (Chronicles of Narnia) play a magical teacher-and-student duo in The Seventh Son, which takes place “in a time long past” and sees the aforementioned duo battle a deadly sorceress known as Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) – who seeks to reignite the war between humankind and supernatural forces of all colors. Seventh Son is based on the first entry in author Joseph Delaney’s popular Wardstone Chronicles book series, originally titled “The Spook’s Apprentice”.

Have a look at the newest piece of conceptual artwork unveiled for The Seventh Son below:

Similar to the Seventh Son artwork previewed at the 2011 Comic-Con, this new pic hints at a fantasy adventure that’s vast in scale and mixes fantastical imagery with majestic landscape visuals. Considering the project is being directed by Oscar-nominated Russian filmmaker Sergei Bodrov (Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan) it’s fair to say the final product should at least deliver on that promise, if nothing else.

The Seven Son arrives in U.S. theaters on February 15th, 2013.

  1. Avengers poster is meh. Nothing we haven’t seen before. Stark’s head looks grafted onto the armor. I am really excited for the Seventh Son movie. I loved the books. Jury is still out for me on Total Recall.

  2. i have no interest in Total Recall because of Farrell, he’s maybe the worst actor in that cast, he’s just so bland sort of like a rice cake
    imho.

  3. i just dont like Farrell for that role in Total Recall
    for me Michael Fassbender would have been 100000 times better.

    • Michael Fassbender cant star in every damn movie

      • thats what they said about Samuel L. Jackson and look at him, he was a Jedi master and now he’s a marvel character. I rather see Jack black as Douglas Quaid, but hey only time will tell maybe he can prove me wrong.

        • HE chose to star, and HE has a contract with marvel to do 9 movies. So expect him to appear in Iron Man 3, There is a possible spin-off about him too that will be during ww2. So unless Micheal has a contract to be in about 20 movies this year, then we’ll see. You are entitled to your opinion though. Personally it’s not the actor i’m worried about..it’s if the film will be based more from the short story rather than adding s*** that wasn’t in the books (like most hollywood movies do)

    • will ferrell may have been a better choice.

  4. Recall’s poster resembles that of Source Code. Yes, the production design is quite slick.

    • I was just thinking the samething.

  5. The Avengers isn’t exactly new they just stuck them all in one poster.I didn’t like it at first but now it has grew on me.The Total Recall looks ok,i had no interest in seeing this but now it’s creeping in my top 20 of must sees this year.

  6. Not a fan of the new Avengers poster. It looks kinda cheap. I much prefer the teaser poster, and the newer one with the NY-battleground backdrop.
    But then again, as Sandy pointed out, by now, a poster doesn’t really matter. After all the hype and all the awesome trailers, I’m sure all the people that were convinced, are still convinced: The Avengers is going to be epic.

    Oh, and Total Recall’s poster looks kinda “meh”. Not a fan of the casting as well.

    • I would rather have The Avengers movie poster be the “A” we have seen before, maybe with the shadows of the heros as well, I agree that it looks cheap.

  7. It just doesn’t look like an “Avengers” poster to me. It looks more like an Iron Man/Thor/Hulk/Captain America/Black Widow/Hawkeye/Nick Fury poster.

    • And how is that not the avengers

  8. The Avengers hype machine should dial down at this point. Everyone is primed.
    It feels like it is starting to repeat itself and no news at this point is good news.

    • Agree. Marvel need to switch off & just wait for release date. Wasn’t gonna watch Total Recall , but now I might hand over my money. Seventh Son sounds awesome. Jeff Bridges. I’m there.

  9. I like the Avengers poster. I dont see any issue with it. Not sure what some of you are looking for.
    Total Recall is one I am looking forward to. Hate on Farrell all you want but the guy does have range when he wants to. I am not a big fan but he can be believable in certain roles.
    I’ll see The Seventh Son just because its Jeff Bridges, nuff said.

  10. How is the poster art for The Avengers even worse than X-Men: First Class?

  11. mace: Michael Fassbender cant star in every damn movie.

    thats what they said about Samuel L. Jackson and look at him, he was a Jedi master and now he’s a marvel character. I rather see Jack black as Douglas Quaid, but hey only time will tell maybe he can prove me wrong.

  12. Hmmmm. Total Recall. I will wait for a trailer of some kind before making a decision. To be fair though, Colin Farrell has improved in recent years so I will try to be optimistic :)

  13. Thor with two hammers… hmmm interesting….Mjolnir and Smjolnir(no such thing)…perhaps LOL. Horrible poster! Can’t wait for the movie though.

  14. Real is when he blows his own toe off with that gun since he’s just standing around holding it with his finger on the trigger… Let’s hope he doesn’t have a twitch…

  15. About The Avengers poster, somehow there is two Bruce Banners, and Nick Fury is about to bust a cap into the air for no reason, while Captain America is wonder why he isn’t in the front… lol

  16. Total Recalls poster looks sick

  17. I think whoever designed the Total Recall poster must’ve either been a woman or gay because any red, hot, blooded, American, male would’ve just had Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel posed in bikinis either holding laser rifles, or spread eagle across the hood of a hover car :P

  18. Has anyone noticed how Joss Whedon REALLY likes to talk with his hands? ;)
    I’d love to be in his shoes though… getting to hold Cap’s shield on the set of The Avengers! (Let alone be the writer and director) — any fan’s dream :D

  19. Awful Avengers poster. It looks like a 4 year old cut out the cast with safety scizzors and glued them together. Worst photoshopping ever, and I’ve seen these images already.

    Yeah… bring on the film. I tire of the recycled last minute marketing. I can’t wait to see if Ruffalo mo-capped Hulk properly. Understanding his massive frame and how to move it, I hope he took notes from Andy Serkis.

  20. Yea the poster couldb e better, I mean what is with Hollywood ALWAYS having to show Tony Stark’s face with the promos? Not good..should have just used the logo and add the characters logos somewhere
