2012 shutter island saw vi header New Posters: 2012, Shutter Island And Saw VI

Today we have a trio of new posters that just popped online recently, they include the disaster movie, 2012, the Martin Scorsese/Leonardo DiCaprio psychological thriller, Shutter Island, and the millionth next installment in the Saw franchise,  Saw VI. One is pretty boring, one is pretty cool and one is pretty intriguing. Find out which poster match up to which description below.

First up we have Roland Emmerich’s (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow) new disaster epic, 2012. Based on the “doomsday prediction” that the world is going to come to an end in the year (you guessed it) 2012, it looks to basically showcase the different cataclysmic disasters that are occurring around the world, presumably focusing on John Cusick’s character (the lead) and his family that we’ve seen in the trailer. Check out the poster below (click it, and any of the other posters, for a larger version):

The 2012 poster is the pretty cool one in my eyes, although it’s basically just like a still from the trailer where we saw cities being practically torn in half. Nonetheless I like it: it’s definitely eye-catching and think it gives of the appropriate vibe for the movie.

Next up is the new Scorsese film, Shutter Island, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley and the new Freddy Krueger himself, Jackie Earle Haley. This is the “pretty boring” poster I mentioned. It’s not too dissimilar to the previous poster we saw which was spotted at Cannes earlier this year, something I was hoping would not be the case. Check it out and see what you think of it:

It’s another case of a floating head really getting in the way of things (DiCaprio’s the star, I know, but do they really need to be that blatant?). If they just removed DiCaprio it would be a lot more effective.

Finally we have the “pretty intriguing” poster I talked about, which is surprisingly the one for Saw VI. This is a franchise who’s blood arguably ran dry three films ago, but nonetheless people keep going to see them and thus the movies make a killing at the box office (at least for the type of movies that they are). I find the poster strangely intriguing, check it out:

The first thing I noticed was the lack of the word “Saw” on the poster, which I guess means (at least for the teasers) they are confident enough that people will know what franchise it is just by a glimpse of one of the ads. I haven’t seen the fifth Saw movie (although I’ve seen 1-4), so perhaps what this poster depicts relates to something that happened in that film? But as someone who’s not completely informed, this poster has at least piqued my interest.

What do you make of this latest batch of posters? Which is your favorite?

2012 opens on November 13th, Shutter Island opens in the US on October 2nd and in the UK on October 9th; and Saw VI opens on October 23rd, all in 2009.

  1. The poster for “2012” looks pretty cool.

  2. I actually like the Shutter Island poster, even with DiCaprio on the front – even though I’m not the biggest fan of DiCaprio. I’ll probably get suckered into watching 2012, though it’ll probably be marginally good. I have no time for the SAW movies: they aren’t horror, just gross-out showcases, which I have little respect for, though I know some people really enjoy that kind of thing, which is cool if you’re that person.

  3. Lol, we were warned.
    So there goes LA,,, I think I see my apt (falling into the sea) in that poster.
    Something to look forward to ?

  4. Hey 790, isn’t that you at the top of the building waving at us under the first “2”? :-)

  5. I like ´VI´best, although I haven´t seen any Saw movie, and I´m not planning on doing so.
    2012 has ugly letters, and it´s typical Emmerich. Too much ID4 and The Day After Tomorrow-y.
    The DiCaprio poster is cool. But I agree, it doesn’t look exciting.

  6. LMAO, yeah if you look closely I’m emailing Screen Rant with the heads up.

    Seagull just crapped in my last beer!!!!
    Damn you Mayan scum!

  7. @790 ha im safe from that in anaheim… no disasters for me except for not finding parking by my apt.

    i love the saw series. 3 is the best one. best traps. best plot connection. i have yet to see 5. hopefully they stop seeing how it comes full circle and maybe go out with a bang!

    i wouldnt mind having that poster though. the 2012 hurts my eyes. too much going on but tells u exactly what your getting just a cgi filled eye $#%^. Which im still debating whether ill pay to see… get it payy. ha.

    shutter island will be good. im hoping its better than the trailer. after seeing the trailer twice i think i already saw the movie. “Theres An extra patient on the island!” guess what im pretty sure dicapro is the Extra patient. ha

  8. Safe in Anaheiem, if that level of destruction is going on you better hope the 91 fwy isn’t flooded. You know the Santa Ana River would be overflowing, prob with some of my dvd collection… :-)

  9. @Iggy
    I think they meant to mislead people in that trailer into thinking he’s the last patient. I can’t believe they would give soo much away.

  10. @790
    Don’t worry. In about 10 seconds a hole will open up in the clouds and you will freeze in about a millisecond, and then a city-sized ship will blast you into a billion pieces. :-)

  11. And I will look up and shout to the heavens,,,,
    “Today is a good day to die!”

  12. Don’t worry! Will Smith will save you.

  13. Or Dennis Quaid, I hope it’s Dennis Quaid…

  14. “The first thing I noticed was the lack of the word “Saw” on the poster”

    Isn’t that how all the latest movie posters have been?
