Movie Poster Roundup: ‘Cowboys & Aliens’, ‘Black Swan’, And More

Red State

Outside of Dogma, Kevin Smith’s films generally do not court controversy. The actor/writer/director has garnered a solid cult following in the form of fans who adore his penchant for writing dialogue – which is generally laced with naughty words and pop culture riffs – and the mix of raunch/sentiment that generally defines his work.

That will change a bit with Red State, Smith’s horror tale about an off-its-hinges church that bears more than a passing resemblance to Fred Phelp’s Westboro Baptist Church, an organization defined as a hate group by the U.S. Anti-Defamation League.

No one is quite sure what to expect from Red State or whether moviegoers are by and large interested in seeing a movie with this kind of subject matter – best to wait until a trailer has been released before we start speculating about what Smith’s come up with this time.

Check out the new Red State one-sheet (which was posted by Giant Fire Breathing Robot :-D) below:

Arthur Christmas

Aardman Animation (of Wallace & Gromit fame) has a new, CG-animated effort in the works and it’s a curious Christmas-set tale about Arthur (voice of James McAvoy), the awkward son of Santa Claus (Jim Broadbent), who sets out to deliver the last of his dad’s gifts to one of 600 million children in the world before December 25th officially arrives.

Arthur Christmas is a family-friendly pic that purports to reveal “the truth” about Santa’s operations at the North Pole (a la Disney’s The Santa Clause movies). The minds over at Aardman studios have created some memorable characters and stories in the past, so here’s hoping they deliver with their new project as well.

Watch the official Arthur Christmas teaser trailer (note: we’ve no idea why Santa’s sleigh looks like an alien spaceship out of Independence Day) and check out the new movie poster (via IMP Awards) below:

Arthur Christmas will be released in 2D and 3D theaters around the U.S. on November 23rd, 2011.


That’s it for today’s poster roundup. Do you have a favorite pick out of the batch?

  1. I love all the posters for Black Swan. Can’t wait to see it.

  2. Daniel Craig looks like the silhouette of Freddy Krueger minus the claws in that Cowboys and Aliens poster. LOL.

    Natalie Portman looks gorgeous in that picture. (Minus the cracks, of course!)

    • The Cowboys & Aliens poster looks great but my goodness Portman is gorgeous. That’s the best poster for me.

  3. They’re good, but I still love the hand drawn/painted posters that used to be used for movies. More romantic and epic in my opinion.

  4. Sandy, any news of a Trailer for Red State?

    • @ Anthony

      Nothing as far as I’ve heard. That’s one trailer to definitely keep an eye out for, though.

      • Damn, well maybe if Smith wasn’t so busy fighting with every airline he books himself on he’d have better progress on making the film lol.

        • Red State traier will be leaked on Christmas Day.

          • *trailer

  5. Arthur Christmas looks very bland to me. Doesn’t stand out at all.

    The Beaver has peaked my interest. I’m excited to see how that turns out.

    Cowboys & Aliens looks AWESOME!
