Over the past few days we’ve seen new posters for Little Fockers, Sucker Punch, Saw 3D, and Resident Evil: Afterlife.
Now, we’ve rounded them up into one convenient post for your viewing pleasure.
The poster is pretty underwhelming – not to mention a pretty lousy Photoshop job. Stiller doesn’t really look like he’s making eye contact with DeNiro – like he’s looking at something just over his father-in-law’s shoulder. Without the inclusion of the title characters (the little Fockers) the poster doesn’t really communicate what the movie’s about. It just suggests more of the same (based on the trailer, perhaps that’s an accurate assumption).
Maybe I’m being too hard on the film. Take a look at the poster and decide for yourself when the movie opens on December 22nd.
The recently released trailer for the film was over the top, awesome, and looks like a tremendous amount of fun. Snyder has yet to make a movie I really love but his visual style is intriguing and I’m interested to see him put those skills to use on a story that isn’t based on existing source material.
I love the look of the film and all of the accompanying promotional artwork thus far. It’s safe to say Sucker Punch has definitely blipped on my radar. If only its release date of March 25th, 2011 didn’t seem so far away.
I’m not the biggest fan of the Saw franchise but the motion poster for Saw 3D from Ugo is, without a doubt, awesome. Even though the footage in the teaser trailer is indistinguishable from the other entries, at least I can understand the filmmakers using a 3D gimmick. Saw 3D should be a lot of fun for fans of the series when the film hits theaters on its new release date – October 29th.

We end this roundup with another franchise going 3D for the first time. Latino Review has unveiled the international poster for Resident Evil: Afterlife – the fourth entry in the horror/sci-fi series.
Poor Alice, she just can’t stop falling out of windows. Our own Rob Keyes was unimpressed with the footage shown at Comic-Con this year – and while I tend to agree, there’s evidently a fan base for these films. Resident Evil: Afterlife marks the return of Paul W.S. Anderson to the director’s chair and if you think that’s good news, I suppose you’ll be in line when the film opens on September 10th.
What do you guys think of the new posters? Is the world ready for Little Fockers? Are you as excited for Sucker Punch as I am? Is Saw 3D one Saw too many or will the 3D effect send the franchise out on a high note? Most importantly, who’s going to help keep Alice from Resident Evil: Afterlife away from anything made of glass?
