By far my favorite part of CinemaCon is strolling the long hallways at Caesars Palace checking out the latest theatrical posters. This year didn’t reveal too many new movies by way of teaser posters, but they did offer images that we haven’t seen yet.
My favorite was Oldboy, simple, yet very pertinent to the movie. At least the Korean version. I’m nervous to see what Spike Lee will do with this remake, but so far so good with the poster.
I also enjoyed the sequel to The Hunger Games, Catching Fire. Each character got their own poster as they lined up side by side. Ender’s Game didn’t reveal anything new, but it was a nice promotional poster.
I thoroughly enjoyed the posters for Star Trek Into Darkness and Kick-Ass 2, but not because they were anything special. J.J. Abrams turned me into a Trek fan, and if you know me, you know that’s no easy feat. I am extremely curious to see if he can recapture that magic from his first one. My guess is yes. And never in my wildest dreams did I think we’d see a sequel to Kick-Ass. I love the original and love what I’ve seen in the trailers for the follow up. I really hope the studio is rewarded for taking a risk on a very disturbingly wonderful comic book franchise. If you haven’t read the books, I highly recommended you do so immediately.
And finally, my most anticipated summer flick this year, Man of Steel. Again, nothing new, but man oh man, Warner Bros. needs this movie to be a hit. And let’s be honest, as much as I love Christopher Reeve and many of the moments he created as Superman, we’ve never really seen an epic film for the original superhero. Here’s hoping the son of Krypton soars this summer.
Anywho, enough rambling. Here’s a collection of the posters that caught my eye!
