New Invasion poster

07.04.2007

THE INVASION isn't getting nearly as much promotion as some of the other summer films out there, or even as much as some of the films coming out next summer, and that's a shame of sorts, because ever since my Nicole Kidman dream a few weeks back, I've had a thing for her, and by thing, I mean dangerously obssessed. So I wouldn't mind seeing her pristine visage plastered all over bus stop terminals everywhere. But alas, that isn't the case, and I'll have to settle for making the newly released INVASION poster my desktop wallpaper.

I like the look of this thing. It's decidedly modern, but the high saturation of red gives it a fifties creature-feature feel, which is fitting since the film's inspiration is INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS. Much hubbub has been flung about over the Wachowskis being called in for rewrites and such, but I was happy with the film's original director Oliver Hirschbeigel, who made the German films DAS EXPERIMENT and DOWNFALL. But that's what happens Oliver, when you try to be artful in the summer months. Click on the picture to see the whole poster and go to the theatre to see the whole movie on August 17.

Trailer = Bad

I saw the trailer for Invasion last night attached to Transformers. The opening scene is of a Space Shuttle breaking up in the atmosphere! How tasteless is that? Using a tragedy to hook viewers?

There's a difference I think between the Columbia disaster and 9/11. 9/11 was a monumental historical item with soooo much death and political entanglement that movies about it are enlightening.

But the Columbia tragedy is something else. I can't pinpoint how, it just is.

I don't know how ANYONE with good taste can find that poster appealing. It's an eye sore.

Terrible

What's up with the red? You'd have no idea what the movie were about if you didn't read the synopsis. And Daniel Craig looks like he was just copied and pasted out of the Casino Royale poster.

lame

The original poster was cryptic but pretty damn creepy. This looks like when my high school accidentally burned the pages of the year book when they were printed and turned everything reddish. This could just as easily be used for a poster about an ex-husband stalking his wife or something about an obsessive artist.

Asshole

Why is it that every new movie poster or DVD release has to have the actors faces just splattered like diarhea or paintball splotches covering the artwork(or lack thereof).

That's not a bad poster. A little bright on the eyes, but overall, pretty cool.
