Friday One Sheet: SLICE And Brand Humor

The minimal teaser posters for A24's 'pizza delivery boy slasher film,' Slice, get right to the meat and cheese of the matter. B O N D, one of my favourite key art design houses who did the tropical Star Wars:...

Friday One Sheet: CAM And A Meltdown In Pink

This eye-catching pink hybrid of eroding paint and digital pixelation, exudes 'disturbed.' It feels like a modern take on the rich history of Polish poster designs. It is a surprising bit of key art to be released from Blumhouse pictures,...

Friday One Sheet: Design and Posture in A SIMPLE FAVOR

This strikingly handsome design for Paul Feig's latest film, A Simple Favor, feels as much like a teaser as the mainline poster, offering little but a look at its stars in perfect posture, a cocktail, and a staircase in the middle...

Friday One Sheet: TO THE NIGHT

This striking hand-painted key art for Peter Brunner's latest, takes one of the most interesting visages, that of Caleb Landry Jones, and renders it in hand-painted abstraction, with emotion intact. Many of you are probably familiar with the hard-working actor...

Friday One Sheet: Design Homage in SIBERIA

When is a design a homage to an iconic previous design, and when is it just lazy theft? I have no idea if the new Keanu Reeves movie, Siberia, mirrors or echoes content from the 1969 Robert Redford skiing drama....

Friday One Sheet: FIRST MAN

What struck me most about this poster for the IMAX release of an upcoming Neil Armstrong biopic, is that at first glance it looks less like a rocket launch, and more like a religious pyre for some early Clan of...

Friday One Sheet: 93QUEEN and THE RUSSIAN JOB

Hot Docs is currently happening in Toronto, and while researching what to see, and what to include in our previous Curtain Raiser post, I came across a few well designed posters for films at the fest. One publicist was kind...

Friday One Sheet: WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR And The Halo Gradient

The first time I saw the 'halo gradient' character poster was in the marketing for Judd Apatow's The 40 Year Old Virgin. Since then, it has become kind somewhat of a key art cliche. This is mainly due to the...

Friday One Sheet: Text As Image UNDER THE SILVER LAKE

It has been an interesting week in text focused teaser posters, and we have selected the key art for David Robert Mitchell's follow-up to It Follows to capture this. The reason why I love this design (notwithstanding the cliché of...

Friday One Sheet: LOWLIFE

It is a good day if you like the Character-Collage style poster, as indie-LA picture Lowlife has released a good one in anticipation of their April 6th release. Warm yellow-orange colour tones showcase the Luchador at the centre of the...

Friday One Sheet: YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE

Three colour, simple, and bloody, this is one of several pieces of key art for Lynne Ramsay's take on Taxi Driver, featuring Joaquin Phoenix, which at one point was called A Beautiful Day, but will be released as You Were Never...

Friday One Sheet: PACIFIC RIM (pink) UPRISING

The trend of pink posters bleeds into 2018 from last year's significant use of the colour in key art.  Here, for one of three Pacific Rim: Uprising IMAX posters, the bold combination of hot pink and electric lime is used...

Friday One Sheet: PIERCING

This eye-catching design for the film adaptation of Murakami Ryu's 1994 novel, making its debut at Sundance, has a kind of Jack Davis sort of look. Davis, most famous for Mad Magazine, had a long good run on movie posters...

Friday One Sheet: STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI

Kicking off a new column here, in which we will look at the most interesting, or conversation-worthy poster of the week, every Friday morning. Sometimes we will talk about design, other times about influences on other iconic films, or historical...

Fabulously Grotesque Posters And Trailer For Jensen's MEN AND CHICKENS

Though you wouldn't necessarily know it from his script writing work - work, it should be said, that has garnered multiple Oscars - those who know Denmark's Anders Thomas Jensen's directorial work already know that there's a deliciously dark streak...
