New poster round-up: G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Stoker, The Master, and Beautiful Creatures

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

What do you give the movie that’s in the midst of living through a nine-month postponement? A new poster, that’s what. One with more Channing Tatum than the last one, as you’d expect considering one of the rumored reasons for G.I. JOE: RETALIATION’s delay sudden and surprising delay.  And with more Bruce Willis, as you’d expect considering… how, by all accounts, the movie isn’t exactly about him. 

Hoping to capitalize on that surefire success of February’s A GOOD DAY DO DIE HARD when G.I. JOE: RETALIATION hits on March 29th, Paramount?

G.I. Joe Retaliation - new poster

All I can say about this new poster for STOKER is that it intensely stokes my desire to see the film.  Which is what posters should ideally do, so far as I understand.  And this art does it in spades, from the visual metaphors on hand to the implied mysteries to the altogether unexpected composition.

Ironic as it might sound, I fully expect this film to be utterly unexpected.  And that’s part of why I’m so excited for it.  March 1st, why are you so far away?

Stoker - everyone together poster

THE MASTER released domestically back September, but is just now beginning its expansion into other territories worldwide.  And the lucky dogs have this eye-catching piece of poster art to remind them of that fact. 

This poster is actually very similar to the one above this text, replete with visual metaphor and mystery – just like THE MASTER, if you think about it.  Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest arrives on DVD and Blu-ray February 26th, with the Blu-ray being presented in in 1.85:1 format so as to replicate 70mm look of the film proper.

The Master - Spanish poster

BEAUTIFUL CREATURES has revealed two more character posters today in advance of its swiftly-approaching February 13th release date, revealing to the world that Jeremy Irons has made another curious project choice just to mess with your desire to see the movie.  Irons’ gravelly voice brings a certain amount of gravitas and intrigue to anything it touches, Southern Gothic Young Adult Supernatural Mystery Adventure Thriller movies included. 

Also Viola Davis, doing… whatever a Viola Davis does post repeated Oscar buzz.  At this point, I almost want to see where this all goes just to know.  Almost.  I suppose I could just read the book, but where’s the fun in that? Reading? Psh.  What an absurd, ancient concept.  Forget words – I only use my eyes to read images now.  Please.
