Today we have a pile of new posters we’ve been collecting throughout the week from a variety of sources.
These include the final poster for The Spirit, the first posters for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and new posters for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, Lost: Season 5, Red Sonja, and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.
That’s a lot of posters!
Without going into too much detail about what I like/dislike about each one, I’ll say that they’re all pretty good, actually.
Take a look and see what you think:
For Underworld, this poster definitely serves its purpose with Bill Nighy’s character Viktor sitting on the throne – simple, but epic for fans of the first two installments. As always, the poster is dark and drenched with a blue overlay.

For Benjamin Button, the posters are a little bland but together are pretty clever with the reversed text on the one featuring Brad Pitt, referring to his reversing age in the film. I'm not too sure the movie will be a massive box office hit, but it will probably be Oscar material and I'll definitely be seeing it.

The Spirit poster references earlier posters which were not good but I actually dig this one a bit (don’t hurt me, Vic!). The prior posters weren't cool on there own but put together with this better color-scheme and design, it's pretty cool and aesthetically pleasing I think.

As for Lost, I love that show and this poster simply shows off what the next season will be about – the split of on-island and off-island characters.

Ice Age 3 and Red Sonja serve their purpose (and respective target audiences) fine I suppose.
