And there you have it folks. Hot off TheDarkKnightRises.com last night at 2am PST, the first official picture of Anne Hathaway as the sleuth Selina Kyle aka Catwoman has been released. But where are the ears?! I want them meow! I can dig everything else, the suit is in the essence of the Nolanverse being ideally realistic, but come on man, give me some cat ears or at the least a whip. Maybe she’ll have her whip in the movie, but I’m not seeing the iconic weapon here nor in the set photos after the jump!
Just like the Michael Jordan versus Lebron James argument, Jordan always winning due to his extraordinary success and talent, Harry Potter will always be better than Twilight in the same respect. CinemaBlend has created an awesome retrospective look back at the success that the film franchise has had over the last 10 years. Go beyond the jump to check out the full infographic in its entirety.
Got the itch for a better look at what you will see this Friday? Well you’re in luck! Thanks to the marketing people who control the Harry Potter movie franchise on Facebook, we get a few sneak peaks at some stills from the movie and production! I grabbed a lot and you can check them all out after the jump!
I find it always fascinating when someone takes a piece of film, literature, television or a videogame and turn them into art. Ms. Lucy Knisely was artistically brilliant enough to take on the entire Harry Potter literature. She transformed every book into a giant comic strip for a poster that you can view on her LiveJournal. If you think she has made a masterpiece than by all means donate to her art. She has done something great here. You can also view all of the books separately in comic strip form after the jump!
Having a minor in graphic design always keeps me on my toes when movie posters come out or basically just anything to do with design crosses my path. I love minimalistic fan movie posters. Mixing simplistic design with fun typograhic characters to create a movie poster are the best of both worlds. Patrik Svensson is a Swedish designer who has a taste for good movies and a love for advertising as well. (Sounds familiar). Catch some of his work after the jump to see more awesome posters!
With less than two weeks to go, the end of an era that is the Harry Potter film franchise will come to a close. With the the final film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Warner Bros. has released some pretty awesome posters that any potter fan would die to get their hands on.
I’m just a big fan of the marketing. The fact that they don’t even have to use the full title of the movie on any of them other than HP7: Part 2 just goes to show how much of a impact this brand has on consumers. It’s like McDonald’s just using their golden arches or Starbucks removing their name from their cups. I kind of wish they took out the HP7: Part 2 from the poster and just stuck with just the tagline.
The continuous tagline, “It All Ends” sums everything up perfectly. No other words could solidify what the past 10 years have been leading up to. After the jump you’ll be treated to 11 hi-res character posters along with four other epic poster art.
As predicted yesterday, a new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 character poster arises and it is in the form of Bellatrix Lestrange, played by Tim Burton’s wife, Helena Bonham Carter. Check the rest out here and click on the picture to enlarge it!
What is said to be Michael Bay’s final contribution to the Transformers film franchise is turning out to be more spectacular than both movies combined. Go big or go home, right? This new 3D trailer that was in front of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides speaks for itself. Watching this massive trailer on an IMAX screen in 3D was almost worth more of my time than watching POTC itself (only because the trailer was two and a half minutes and not a whole movie). According to Transformers Live Action Movie Blog, this will be the last of the trailers we’ll be seeing before the film hits theaters June 29, not July 1 anymore. Check out the trailer in 2D after the jump where I also snagged 188 stills too!
Let The Dark Knight Rises viral marketing begin!!! Much have I anticipated the long arrival of the next viral marketing campaign for Christopher Nolan’s third Batman film. This first image of the villain Bane, one of the many villains in the upcoming film, is the first of many incidents we will hopefully be given to explore the world of Gotham city! Casting Tom Hardy is one thing, but casting him as a villain should be a spectacle to behold, especially with Nolan at the helm. Go after the jump to see how it all got discovered!
About a week or so ago, everyday the folks at Warner Bros. have been releasing a unique Harry Potter character poster of each of the cast with the same ominous wording “IT ALL ENDS”. They don’t even have the title of the movie on the posters, but honestly, do they really need to? It has been a long decade of wizarding and fantasy that will truly and sadly all come to an end. Thus far we have Harry, Hermione, Ron, Snape, Neville, Voldemort, and Draco posters. I would assume there are more to come with each day passing. I foresee possible posters with Luna, Ginny, Hagrid, Bellatrix, Lucious, and maybe even Dumbledore in the future. But for now, check after the jump to see all the current hi-res posters! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 opens in theaters in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D (both post converted) July 15!
