Ah Looper, could you possibly look any more awesome? It’s only a mere month way until Rian Johnson’s time travelling thriller is finally unleashed upon us lucky film fans, so until then we have another duo of effective character posters to tide us over. I know, that’s barely enough to whet one’s appetite, but they’re still a pair of sleek designs worth checking out. We have a new Life Of Pi poster this week too, and thankfully it’s far more impressive than then the debut poster for the film was. Visually, the design is a glossy and vivid representation of the film that certainly impresses. The last one-sheet I want to mention is that for Killing Them Softly. It’s a rather stark design, but it’s this minimal approach that ensures it stands out from the crowd.
There’s only one bad poster that I want to criticise this week, however its awfulness is almost unparalleled. The Rift is clearly a low-budget science fiction outing, so I only wish the filmmakers the best of luck. However nothing can excuse the beyond terrible marketing poster for the film. Filmmakers take note, this is not how you draw in an audience…
