For your viewing pleasure we have a couple of new posters: One extremely creepy, the other evoking bewilderment.
The first is for the creepy sci-fi flick Pandorum, which stars Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster (Angel from X-Men 3: United). The plot synopsis is as follows:
Two crewmen awaken from hyper-sleep aboard a spacecraft. None of their equipment is working, and their memories are incomplete. What was their mission? How much time has passed? Where are they? Who are they? As they try to piece things together, they discover they are not alone, and the ship’s new inhabitants are moving among them, intent on killing all aboard. As the space travelers unravel the frightening and deadly secrets the ship harbors, they realize the survival of mankind hinges on their actions. They must regain control of the ship before Pandorum takes over.
Wow, sounds creepy indeed. Although wait until you see the poster and trailer:
This film sounds like a strange hybrid of the original Alien, Steven Soderbergh’s remake of Solaris, Event Horizon and Danny Boyle’s Sunshine – I think if you took those four and put them in a blender you’d get something resembling Pandorum. Although perhaps it’s just fancy trailer editing that evokes those comparisons.
The next film is one we know relatively little about called Order of Chaos. The film is written and directed by Vince Vieluf (making his directing debut), and on the casting side of things it stars Heroes’ Milo Ventimiglia, along with Samantha Mathis, Rhys Coiro (Entourage, CSI) and Mimi Rogers. Thanks to FirstShowing after doing some research, the general plot is as follows:
“The film [a thriller] chronicles the duplicitous relationship between a naive attorney and a neighbor-colleague and their fierce competition to move up in the firm and get ahead in life.”
It’s a bit on the vague side, as is the wicked poster:

That is just about one of the most well designed, coolest and most interesting to look at posters I have seen in a long, long time. It’s always hard to come up with a unique poster and catch people’s attention (I’m so sick of the “floating heads” thing we see so much of) and this one certainly stands alone. Simple but tremendously effective.
Out of the two I’m probably more interested in Order of Chaos, simply because of the mysterious nature of it (and that kick-ass poster shown above). Until a trailer or more info comes out about it we can ponder just what the poster is all about.
