i want to like them because I get tired of the movie posters I have to endure when walking through the theatre, some of them are good, but most of these are bad, like freshman college art student bad.

Agreed. That is an awesome poster.

All of these are a thousand times better than the actual movie posters.

"Alternate" subby, alternate.

That was actually a good list. I went in expecting to see a list filled with the same tired "minimalist" (read: lazy/unintelligible) poster design but those were actually really good. IMHO the Skyfall one was the best but to each their own.

Me too, but mostly because the credits are all wrong.  Marvel Studios had nothing to do with that shiat show...

Not really, they're pretty weak as movie posters, and the one for Room 237 is nowhere as cool as the real one. The Dark Knight Rises one is actually the only truly creative one, and the only other one that's really cool is On The Road. The rest look cool in the way that they are like Graphic Design students' submissions. Not bad, creative, but far less so than the originals.

Okay, other than the obvious reason of their thing they have going, why are Hawkeye's arrows on Black Widow's line?

I think they're supposed to be knives or bullets, not Hawkeye's gear. He's the next line down.

Yea I'll give it to one or two but the rest are just hideous. It definitely looks like a high school graphic design project.

Prometheus gets me giddy because, well, it's hard to screw up art deco.

The Skyfall, Dark Knight Rises, and Raid posters are sheer genius.
 
2012-12-20 05:19:54 PM  
I liked these. That is all.
 
2012-12-20 05:24:01 PM  
Conceptually, I like that Skyfall poster but the execution was godawful.
 
2012-12-20 05:33:08 PM  
These are always cool. Well, almost always.

The Dark Knight Rises poster is fantastic. Apart from the Prometheus poster, the others are kind of meh.

The Raid was a really bad movie.  No idea why it was so hyped up.

No, see, the Spider-Man one is purposely bad to show how bad the movie is.

Oh well, at least the Prometheus one was interesting.

Well it gives away what Skyfall is, which is a dumb mistake as far as I'm concerned.
