Jay Roach directed Game Change, HBO’s docudrama about the 2008 election that conservative critics resented because they thought it lampooned Sarah Palin. In his summer comedy, The Campaign, lampooning the candidates is the whole point. As you can see from the new poster, Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis go nose-to-nose in a crucial congressional election in North Carolina. Ferrell is a slimy incumbent who’s never faced a real electoral challenge, while Galifianakis plays the clueless outsider who wants to clean up Washington. “May the Best Loser Win,” reads the tagline. I already like this better than Welcome to Mooseport. See a larger version of the poster and watch the trailer after the jump. READ FULL STORY »

That central story obviously is a spin on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (by way of the classic Universal movies) and Burton promises various other famous monsters of filmland will turn up in the story as assorted ghoulish pets. The poster for the 3-D, black-and-white film, which hits theaters Oct. 5, reveals just a few.
Is that a Creature From the Black Lagoon version of a sea monkey in the lower left corner?
Judging by the brief glimpses of The Dark Knight Rises we’ve seen so far, we know that Batman is going to take a beating — likely at the hands of the muscled terrorist Bane. Anne Hathaway’s cat burglar, on the other hand, has been much more difficult to pin down. Is she part of Bane’s “liberation” front, a freelancer with her own scheme, or a potential ally for our aging hero. The most recent TV spot showcased the semi-playful costume-party banter between Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle, who shrewdly ended up getting her own ride home.
But the newest movie poster — uncovered on the film’s website by a hawk-eyed reader of Batman-News.com — hints that the feline vamp might not flinch from stepping on Batman’s neck, should the opportunity arise. True to the character’s ambivalence, though, she leaves her mark with a kiss. Check it out below.
After a miniature online scavenger hunt, fans have unlocked three new character posters from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2. If you weren’t one of the few who helped to unscramble the names of the 22 new coven members, you can still click through for a peek at Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner doing what they do best: lookin’ pretty. The posters also debut a new one-word tagline for the final film: “Forever.”
Up first: Pattinson as Edward, equipped with amber contacts and a flawless bottom lip. READ FULL STORY »
Turns out, yesterday’s sorta new The Dark Knight Rises poster was just a preamble to three completely new character posters for Christopher Nolan’s final Batman movie. Bane (Tom Hardy), Batman (Christian Bale), and Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) each get their own striking one sheets, featuring the character standing in some harsh rain that appears to transform into tiny sharp rocks as it bounces off their bodies. Behind them sits the word “RISE” in big letters, which for some reason makes me want to spend the rest of my day standing at my desk.
The new poster for The Dark Knight Rises looks a fair amount like the first rubble-strewn poster for The Dark Knight Rises, with the “red fire” Photoshop filter and a downcast Batman added in front. But it certainly adds to the overall impression that Christopher Nolan’s final Batman film is going for an epic and foreboding big finish. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY »
You could put together a decent-sized horror film festival of movies which feature demented clowns. And then you could trick a busload of people with a morbid fear of circus entertainers into attending the event by saying it was a coulrophobics convention.
But enough about THINGS I PLAN TO DO AFTER I BECOME A SUPERVILLAIN!!!
Stitches is the latest movie to try and cram facepaint-related macabre-ness into its duration like, well, a lot of clowns attempting to squeeze into a comically small car. Director Conor McMahon’s currently-screening-at Cannes film stars acclaimed British standup comedian Ross Noble as kids’ birthday clown Richard ‘Stitches’ Grindle who, years after being the victim of a fatal party mishap, returns to avenge his death.
After 50 years and 23 films, it is tough to come up with something new to do with that Bond-in-the-gun-barrel sequence that has been opening 007 movies since Dr. No. Turning it into part of the plot in 2006’s Casino Royale – during the men’s room fight, Daniel Craig swivels his pistol at the camera and makes his first kill as a double-0 agent — was the last inspired innovation. But let’s give some kudos to whatever design team thought up this teaser poster for Skyfall, which will be opening in the U.S. this November. Having Craig appear to be actually walking into the barrel is a clever twist we haven’t seen before.
This is happening, people. On the heels of the Anchorman II teaser that began playing before screenings of The Dictator last night, Paramount has released a teaser poster for its highly anticipated comedy sequel. Like that one-minute clip, the new image doesn’t reveal anything about the film’s plot — but seeing it might put fans in a glass case of emotion anyway. And if nothing else, it does seem to indicate that the new film’s official title is Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Click through to see Ron, Brick, Brian, and Champ once more… or, at least, part of them.
It’s an easy two-step process, and it’s one that’s perfectly executed by the folks behind the new film Marley, the documentary about reggae legend Bob Marley, which opens in theaters today and is available on demand. EW got an exclusive look at one of film’s video posters, which features various shots of Marley beneath some smooth, soothing reggae jams from the famous friend of Mary Jane.
