Movie Poster Roundup: Paul, Thor, Hobo with a Shotgun, and More

Source Code

Director Duncan Jones got a lot of people’s attention with his 2009 film Moon and he hopes to keep that attention with Source Code. The action/thriller stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a soldier who wakes up in the body of another man and finds out he is part of a team trying to track down the bomber of a Chicago commuter train. Sound confusing? Watching the trailer isn’t going to clear very much up but the film certainly looks interesting. Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, Jeffery Wright and Russell Peters all co-star in Source Code. Here’s an interesting fan-made poster made by Lloyd Stas for the movie proving that not just blockbuster films receive fan boy attention.

Winnie the Pooh

“Oh Pooh.” – says Piglet on the latest poster for Disney’s Winnie the Pooh film. It’s a simple tag line for a simple movie about a simple bear. Kids (and adults) of all ages should be familiar with A.A. Milne’s little bear living in The Hundred Acre Woods along with his pals Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga, Roo and of course Christopher Robin. While the film may not reach Toy Story 3 box office numbers it will no doubt earn a place on every child’s DVD shelf. Craig Ferguson, John Cleese, Jim Cummings and Gilbert Gottfried all lend their voices to the Winnie the Pooh film.

Paul

There are plenty of alien films coming out this year – which you can see by watching our 2011 Alien Film Mash-Up – but none should be funnier than Greg Mottola’s upcoming alien comedy Paul. The film stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as two alien enthusiast buddies travelling to visit Area 51 hoping to see an alien. Those hopes are soon realized but it’s nothing like they imagined as the slacker alien Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen) literally drops into their lives. Can they stay one step ahead of the authorities while trying to return Paul to his home?

The Rite

Audiences are drawn to films about demon possession and exorcisms as there are hundreds of movies dedicated to the subject. Most studios tack on the byline “inspired by true events” in an attempt to make the film scarier – though it rarely works. The Rite is yet another film in this “true event/demon possession” genre and judging by the trailer for the film director Mikael Håfström hasn’t added any new elements to the genre. He has plenty to work with though as seasoned actors Anthony Hopkins and Rutger Hauer star in The Rite.

Black Death

Black Death is a movie that we have been following since 2009, hoping the film would get a wide US release. Sadly that hasn’t happened yet but hopefully a studio will step up to the plate soon. As seen in the trailer, fan favorite Sean Bean fights the demons of Hell as he tries to defeat the source of a mysterious other-worldly plague. Black Death is up and coming director Christopher Smith’s sixth time directing with his last two – Severance and Triangle – being the best.

Rubber

The idea behind Rubber is absurd: a tire gains self-awareness, sees a bunch of tires being burned in the desert, teaches itself telepathic powers, then starts killing humans with its – “mind.” But honestly is that anymore absurd than say a flying super alien, a short hairy man with blades in his arms or Will Farrell inventing a time machine? Rubber is the brain child of Quentin Dupieux, which he also wrote and directed, and has been playing at film festivals since last November – though a US release is planned.

The Ward

After ten years, horror director John Carpenter has once again stepped behind the camera to direct The Ward. Amber Heard stars as a girl who is committed to an insane asylum to help deal with her mental breakdowns but, once there, she and the other girls become terrorized by a ghostly presence. The trailer for The Ward is dark and moody and, at first glance, it appears that fans of Carpenter’s work won’t be disappointed. Danielle Panabaker, Lyndsy Fonseca, Mamie Gummer and Jared Harris all co-star in The Ward.

  1. did u guys post that poster about the rubber tire with telekinetic powers that goes on a killing spree? its called Rubber lmao its a real movie

    • @Dr. Stranger – Ummm…you’re confusing me. The Rubber poster is on page 2. Did you not see it?

  2. okay i see it nvd lmo

  3. You know there is a lot of artsy type of poster which is cool, like the Thor and TDKR

  4. That Thor poster SO doesn’t go with what we’ve seen so far about the movie…

    Vic

    • yeah Vic it looks fan made! LOL!

    • @Vic – Well it wasn’t meant as a promotion for the film. It was a gift to the cast and crew so it makes sense they would give them something collectible instead of something they can buy in the poster section at Wal-mart. :)

    • I love that Thor poster. It kind of reminds me of the work that other minimalist artist you featured on SR a few months back.

      that movie Rubber cracks me up. I love the campy 60′s style poster. I may have to see it just because of the witty poster.

  5. TDKR poster is AMAZING! I wonder if theyll cook up something better than that. :D

    • Highly doubtful Ricky, that’s the best movie poster I have seen in a very long time.

      • Agreed, they will not come with poster half that good, I’d happily have it on my wall. Absolutely fantastic, they should get whoever made that and get them on WB payroll straight away.

        • Yeah! Whoever did it should do the Man of Steel

    • agreed with ya

      • Yeah that would look great on my wall.
        God some fan made posters are wayyy better than the real ones I dont get it.

        • simply put, fans care more than a focus group of media executives sitting in a boardroom, those are the people who design movie posters these days.

  6. I am loving most of the trailers here.
    Quick question, when will you guys post the trailer for Rubber?

    • @Jose – I’m writing it up this morning…keep an eye out.

  7. Pooh poster brings back warm childhood memories, I love it.

    Hobo With A Shotgun is my other favorite…that movie is going to be the opposite of Pooh – violence, sex and drugs

    The other posters…meh. Source Code poster is confusing.

  8. Russell Peters is in Source Code? Russell Peters the Canadian Stand-Up Comic?

    Saw a clip of Rubber… the modern equivalent of Attack (and Return) of the Killer Tomatoes… but much better and funnier.

    And somebody give Josh Gilbert an award… or at least a free coffee.

  9. What I wouldn’t give to see John carpenter’s “Pooh with a shotgun!”
    Ah, well…one can dream~

  10. I liked TDKR, Dylan Dog and Scream of the Banshee posters the best.

  11. The Dark Knight Rises is pretty sweet by the unexpectedly awesome award goes to the Tron Legacy Soundrack “Oscar Consideration” poster…that is sweet!!

    Though now that I look at it again, the Thor one is really cool too:)
