As per usual, this week we have a brand new set of one-sheets for your viewing pleasure. This latest batch includes posters for Pandorum, Agora, Whip It, Astroy Boy, The House of the Devil, Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant and 2012.

All of these movies open in the next three months so stay tuned for more news! Check out all of the new posters after the jump.

First up: from the IMPA gallery, a new poster for Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, starring John C. Reilly, Josh Hutcherson, Chris Massoglia and Ray Stevenson. It also famously features Salma Heyek as “The Bearded Lady.” Hot, right? I’ll pass.

This adventure fantasy film, directed by Paul Weitz, is about a young boy who meets a vampire who heads up a freak show. Of course he ends up joining and becomes a vampire himself. It is based on the 12-book series, The Saga of Darren Shan. It was set up as four trilogies so the film could have several sequels if it does well at the box-office.

The Vampire’s Assistant opens October 23, 2009.

Here we have five new character posters for the upcoming Rachel Weisz film, Agora.

Agora is directed by Alejandro Amenábar and the story takes place in 4th century Egypt where religious protests arise under the reign Roman Empire. Weisz’s character, Hypatia, is the strong-willed astronomer who works with her disciples to save their ancient traditions while two men fight for her love.

Check out the character posters:

Head over to the official Agora website for the trailer and more. A hat tip to Alex Billington (First Showing) for picking up on these.

The movie looks beautiful but it really makes me wish Rome was still being made on HBO. I miss that show.

Unfortunately for those of us wanting to see this, it does not yet have a US distributor.

Next up is an MTV exclusive poster for Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut, Whip It. The film stars Ellen Page as a young and rebellious Texan who joins an all-girl roller derby team in defiance of her mom who wants her in beauty pageants.

You may draw whatever feelings you want on that little summary… Here’s the poster:

The synopsis is as follows:

In the 1980s, college student Samantha Hughes takes a strange babysitting job that coincides with a full lunar eclipse. She slowly realizes her clients harbor a terrifying secret; they plan to use her in a satanic ritual.

This movie hits theaters October 30th but it strangely debuts before that, October 1st, on XBox Live and Amazon.

This next one is unique – It’s a motion poster for the sci-fi horror flick, Pandorum.

Sadly, it only shows the most disgusting parts of what we’ve seen so far from the trailers.

Pandorum stars Dennis Quaid, Ben Foster, Cam Gigandet and Norman Reedus. It’s now scheduled to open a week later, on September 25, 2009.

Last but not least, we have three devastating posters for 2012, the next world destruction epic by Roland Emmerich. It stars John Cusack, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Amanda Peet, Danny Glover, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Oliver Platt and John Billingsley.

The tagline for the movie is “We Were Warned” and I certainly was from watching 10,000 BC and The Day After Tomorrow, both of which I disliked highly. That being said, this movie looks more watchable from a visual perspective.

2012 opens November 13, 2009.

If I had to choose one or two of these to put on my wall, I’d have to go with 2012 & one of the ones in the style of Agora.

Which poster(s) do you like best?

  1. The posters for “2012″ look cool, same with the “Astroboy”, and “Pandorum”.

  2. The Vampire plague is upon us,,,

    What’s with all the Medieval angst?

    Ellen Page is rebellious yet still wears head protection,,, smart chick,,, and so green,,, (o)

    Ok if there gonna destroy LA I’m totally seeing 2012.
    I hope they show the Staples Center getting its ars kicked by prophecy and lore…
    Where’s Christopher Walken when you need him?

  3. i love your posters posts. really love movie posters being displayed like a lot at a time

  4. I did a double take when I read the book series was set up as four trilogies.

    FOUR?!? I mean geez! Tolkien for all his wordy prose (and I love Tolkien, but he could ramble at times) still managed to wrap his magnum opus up in three acts.

    Am I so jaded to think that the author of these books decided to capitalize on the Twilight (vampires)/Harry Potter (7 book tomes covering some darker themes) bandwagon while the gravy train still seems primed?

    I know film tropes have cycles, but hasn’t the one for vampires run it’s course ’till maybe 10 or 20 years from now?

  5. I agree! Vampires are dead…(snicker)

    yah there are four trilogies but not one of the books is nearly quite the epics that you refer to in length (harry potter, lord of the rings etc…) every single book in the series can be read in at least a day a few are short enough to get in an entire trilogy in one day.

    and as far as jumping on the whole vampire bandwagon that wouldn’t be the author seeing that the first of the books was released in 2000/2001 5 years before the whole twilight craze an wrapped up around 2004/2005.

    but i do agree that it is part of the craze and that i don’t feel this series would have ever been considered for a 4 movie deal if it hasn’t been for the whole vampire thing that twilight started
