You've probably seen countless unimaginative movie posters featuring the looming oversized craniums of famous actors, their huge facial surfaces used to promote a film without telling you much else about it. This technique is unofficially referred to as "floating heads".

How do they come up with this sort of marketing? This might be insightful:

Think I found him

The guy's name is Brian Huskey. He's had small parts in a couple of Ferrell's films including Step Brothers and Semi-Pro. He was also in Superbad.

I agree that the Iron Man posters weren't the best, but come on, just a month ago everybody was talking about how cool the TDK posters were. I mean "Why So Serious?" Remember how stoked everyone was when that first came out? What about the one featuring the building with the flaming bat on it? I mean if these aren't awesome posters then what are?

Drew Struzen

They really should just hire Drew Struzen (Indiana Jones 2-4, Star Wars Special Edition and Episodes 1-3, Blade Runner, Harry Potter, Mallrats) to do all posters. His posters are the only ones I really like (Even with the greatness that was Iron Man and Dark Knight, the posters sure sucked).

Very funny!

The worst offender in terms of floating heads is defiantly Iron Man. That poster looked like something out of the '80's.

Tony Danza was the guy who told Terrence Howard that the black guy's dialogue had to be authentic when it was just stereotypical phrases in whatever movie or show they were working on.

That was really funny. The best part were the rejected posters.
