The final Twilight film will be hitting theaters in November and I know what you guys are thinking: “How will EW possibly survive without a Stephenie Meyer property to write about?” It’s sweet of you to worry, but you needn’t — the movie version of The Host, Meyer’s only novel not about bedazzled bloodsuckers, isn’t coming out for another year. So there’s still time! The film’s first poster, featuring star Saoirse Ronan with some sort of severe corneal damage, has just hit the web – check it out below.

Tag: Movie Posters (91-100 of 187)
Did you see what I did there in the headline? Get ready for all the “un-“ puns you can handle, now that the first teaser poster has been released for Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino’s impending old-timey bloodbath about a slave turned bounty hunter who must rescue his wife from a sadistic plantation owner. Another typical Christmas Day release.
The teaser features two gun-brandishing silhouettes underneath a broken chain, about the only clue to the movie’s title, which is conspicuously missing from the poster. The silhouettes most likely belong to Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz, who respectively play the titular former slave and his skip tracing German dentist companion. Check out the full poster below: READ FULL STORY »
'The Cabin in the Woods': Check out the forthcoming horror movie's new Mondo/Alamo Drafthouse poster -- EXCLUSIVE
Mondois the collectible art boutique offshoot of the Alamo Drafthouse cinema chain and, as we’ve previously reported, the folks there have produced an array of stylish, eye-catching posters for old movies. But Mondo has also commissioned posters for new films, including Drive and Hobo with a Shotgun. Now the company is paying tribute to director Drew Goddard and cowriter Joss Whedon’s forthcoming The Cabin in the Woods.
'The ABC's of Death': Check out the forthcoming horror anthology's new gloriously gruesome poster -- EXCLUSIVE
As scary concepts go, learning the alphabet has never really ranked up there with, say, being pursued by a chainsaw-wielding maniac, being attacked by a horde of hungry zombies, or being stitched together into a human centipede by a deranged surgeon. To put it another way, the ABCs are generally thought of as being more Sesame Street than Elm Street. But all that is about to change!
This September will see the release of the ABCs of Death, a new horror anthology with 26 demise-oriented chapters, each one overseen by a different director. The featured filmmakers include Ti West (The Innkeepers), Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun), Ben Wheatley (Kill List), and Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes).
If that isn’t enough to whet fright fans’ appetites, we are pleased to exclusively unveil the movie’s poster, which you can see to the left and in larger form below. This macabre vision was designed by Kaare Andrews, a comic book artist-writer (The Incredible Hulk, Ultimate X-Men) and filmmaker who is himself currently prepping the Cabin Fever prequel Patient X.
Brave (in theaters June 22) is a bit of a maverick among Pixar’s animated repertoire. As the studio’s 13th feature, it represents the first time a Pixar picture has starred — finally! — a female protagonist. Brave‘s also the animation powerhouse’s first fairy tale, its first movie set far in the past (ancient Scotland), and marks a step into slightly darker and creepier territory. In Japan, for instance, the film will be called Merida and the Frightening Forest. “It’s appropriately scary, as much as it needs to be to tell the story effectively,” says Mark Andrews, who shares directing credit with Brenda Chapman. “But it’s not overly horrific or terrifying — we’re not going for a PG-13 rating. You’re in good hands with a Pixar movie, as always.”
Andrews was careful not to reveal too much of the story, but this much we know: Merida (Boardwalk Empire‘s Kelly Macdonald) is a teenage princess in the Scottish kingdom of DunBroch, and as such, she’s expected to marry one of three suitors from neighboring clans. But Merida, being the fiery free spirit that she is, wants nothing to do with the tradition. “How she resists [this custom] leads to more and more trouble that ultimately endangers not only the kingdom, but her loved ones,” says Andrews. One of Merida’s choices involves seeking the assistance of a witch (Julie Walters), who grants the princess a wish that goes horribly wrong.
Check out more about Merida and Brave‘s other major characters, as well as see four new character posters exclusive to EW, below: READ FULL STORY »
After the eye-popping flashstravaganza of Step Up 3D, the latest installment of the dance franchise has a high bar to reach. (And that’s without mentioning that the first Step Up launched the career of a reasonably attractive and somewhat funny actor named Channing Tatum — you may have heard of him.) From the looks of a dynamic, fourth-wall-breaking new poster exclusive to EW, Step Up Revolution is well on its way.
Palm trees signal Step Up‘s move to Miami, where young dancer Emily (So You Think You Can Dance season 6 fan favorite Kathryn McCormick) meets a flash mobber named Sean (Ryan Guzman) with moves that make her heart and her hips quake. Check out the appropriately caliente one-sheet below. READ FULL STORY »
In comedy, timing is everything. And right now, in light of the Trayvon Martin tragedy, it’s hard to imagine worse timing for a comedy called Neighborhood Watch, even if the movie is about four volunteer crime fighters (Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and Richard Ayoade) battling space aliens. Yesterday, Fox pulled posters and the teaser trailer for the film from Florida, where, on Feb. 26, a real-life neighborhood watch captain shot and killed an unarmed African-American teenager, sparking nationwide protests.
“We are very sensitive to what’s going on,” Neighborhood Watch producer Shawn Levy tells EW. “But other than the name of the organization, there is zero overlap between the movie and what’s going on in Florida. It’s very much a comedy that pits regular guys against a non-Earthly foe.” Levy says there have so far been no discussions about whether to postpone the film’s July 27 release, but it sounds like at least one of the stars would prefer the show go on as scheduled. “You’re talking to the guy who had the first comedy out after 9/11,” says Stiller. “We just put Zoolander out there. There were questions about whether it was too early for a comedy, but we couldn’t find a reason why there shouldn’t be a comedy in the world.”

On February 26, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman. That shocking, racially charged incident has led to widespread outrage, protests… and trouble for 20th Century Fox, the studio behind the upcoming aliens vs. Ben Stiller comedy Neighborhood Watch.
In light of Martin’s death, Fox has decided to pull the film’s first teaser poster and trailer from theaters in the slain teen’s home state of Florida. “The movie, which is not scheduled for release for several months, was made and these initial marketing materials were released before this incident ever came to light,” a Fox spokesperson told EW in an official statement. “The teaser materials were part of an early phase of our marketing and were never planned for long-term use. Above all else, our thoughts go out to the families touched by this terrible event.”
Fox is reportedly still planning to release Neighborhood Watch on July 27. In addition to Stiller, the film also stars comic heavyweights Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and The IT Crowd‘s Richard Ayoade. Check out the yanked trailer, as well as a full-size poster, below. READ FULL STORY »
Ever since the trailer for Dark Shadows hit the web a few days ago, it’s safe to say that the buzz has been mixed. Some fans of the original 1960s vampire TV soap opera are gnashing their fangs at the idea that director Tim Burton and star Johnny Depp (who’s playing the suave undead playboy Barnabas Collins) seem to have turned their cherished cult series into the stuff of campy comedy. Others think the movie looks like a twisted gothic hoot in the vein of other Burton films like Beetlejuice. We’ll have to wait until May 11 to see the complete results of Burton’s handiwork, but in the meantime, freshly emerged from the shadows, below are several new posters for the film. Each highlights a particular character, with ghoulishly pale portraits set against colorful backgrounds and the tagline “Strange is Relative.” READ FULL STORY »
Empire got a hold of the new poster for Wes Anderson’s runaway quirk-mance Moonrise Kingdom. Though the film is live action, this new poster has a similarly stylized feel to Anderson’s 2009 animation adventure Fantastic Mr. Fox. The film also marks Anderson’s long-awaited reunion with Bill Murray, though he is absent from the poster in favor of its tween stars Kara Hayward and Jared Gilman in their ’60s finery. Check it out below. READ FULL STORY »
