Ten January 2011 Posters

I have no idea how I will choose posters for February, but this is a feature I would like to keep. Though, if I keep it, the poster highlights of the year will seem a bit redundant, non?

I have a love/hate relationship with film marketing. I love it, I do some work for it. But as a film lover, I have tried to stay away from posters and trailers because a film is so much more enjoyable when you discover it by chance. There is no better feeling than watching something you didn’t know you’d be watching and enjoying it.

The internet makes it almost impossible to not know what movie is what, and writing for YAM kind of requires me to look at stuff, especially when everyone I talk film with talk about it.

And I love posters. So here are ten posters listed at the IMP Awards as 2011. Alphabetically~


With the tagline “Welcome to the Future” and that hand — that reminds me a little bit of Eli’s hand on the Let the Right One In poster — 51 seems like a sci-fi horror. I don’t know what it’s about, but my crazy mind is imagining LtROi meets Alien. LOL

Battle: Los Angeles

This set of grainy photos featuring stuff mixed with blurry UFOs adn a website to report threats remind me of District 9, in that both films present us fiction (unless you believe in UFOs) and mix it with our daily real life.

    Omg…The Winnie The Pooh poster is so cute and funny! :P And I tend to agree with most of the posters you put up here. Well deserved! Need I mention, the “Happythankyoumoreplease” poster caught my eye when I was writing that article for my Top 10 fave posters of 2010. :P

    […] I found talking about movie posters on a monthly basis really difficult [1]. Not only is it hard to keep up with the posters that get unleashed every single day, but my […]
