Wednesday Poster Round-Up Featuring the new poster for The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo

1. Paranorman: Grade C+

I usually don’t like any taglines, but for whatever reason, I think this one is good for this fun little poster.

2. The Look: Grade B-

Charlotte Rampling is always a striking, regal presence. Her beauty has gracefully aged, and is on stark display in this poster.

3. The Woman in Black: Grade B

There is nothing new about this poster, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t creepy.

4. Vysotsky: Thank God I’m Alive: Grade B

Is there a better combination of colors than Black and Red? It can make even the most banal posters stylish and sexy.

5. Chilling Romance: Grade B

It is odd, and slightly disturbing. I love the innocent touches, and the soft purple.

6. Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol: Grade D

This poster is so boring that without the title I’d think it was an ad for a clothing line.

7. Elevate: Grade B+

Vibrant colors, with a traditional African art feel, coupled with a modern looking text gives this poster a fresh look.

8. Return to Zero: Grade B+

There’s a sleek elegance to this poster that’s accentuated by the vertical line used as a subtle artistic flair.

9. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo: Grade C+

Unfortunately, not as provocative as the first poster, it bypasses the sex and bluntness of the first, and takes a more traditional route this time, including a terrible tagline.

10. Snow on tha Bluff: Grade A

Raw, and poetic, the skin is the story, beautiful and shocking, its scars, its warpaint, its sorrow.

    I’m loving that Snow On Tha Bluff poster. I’ve never seen a thug portrayed with such raw emotion. You can tell he’s hungry, sad, intelligent, and calculating.

    That movie looks to be like the next Paranormal Gangsta movie ! LOL

    Nce observations – right on the nose! The poster for M:I, GP is totally upstaged by the single photo of Rampling, who looks deceivingly dangerous. (Substitute a gun for her camera and she could blow away tbe Cruise crew!)
