Comic-Con 2013 will soon welcome some of the most-hyped upcoming movie titles to San Diego next month, and one of the projects making the pilgrimage is Universal's 'Riddick.' The Vin Diesel-starring sci-fi flick is ready to make a splash at the convention, and this new Comic-Con-exclusive poster has arrived to herald its presence.
With the summer movie season in full swing, it's about time we got a poster for what's sure to be one of the big events of 2013. The first poster for 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' has arrived, and it's sure to send a chill or two down the spines of Middle Earth fans the world over.
'Escape Plan' (previously titled 'The Tomb') feels like a movie we've been waiting 30 years to see: a team-up between action icons Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Technically, the two musclebound actors appeared together in the 'Expendables' films, but that was a glorified cameo on Arnie's part. This one is the real deal. The first poster for this sure-to-be-amazing-even-if-it's-not film has arrived and it has us pumped.
Whether you're referring to Stephen King's original novel or the 1976 Brian De Palma film, one mention of 'Carrie' conjures up images of bloody, psychic vengeance during a high school prom. For this reason, all of the marketing for director Kimberly Peirce's take on the material has focused on the final chunk of the film, where bullied teen Carrie White unleashes her supernatural powers on an unsuspecting populace. The newest poster doesn't stray from this formula.
If you're going to borrow a formula, you might as well borrow the formula for one of the more successful franchises in recent memory. People have been jokingly calling 'R.I.P.D.' "'Men in Black' with ghosts" for some time now, and for darn good reason: it does look like 'Men in Black' with ghosts. Not that there's anything wrong with that. If you want us to see a movie where the great Jeff Bridges plays an undead cowboy hunting down stray spirits, all you have to do is tell us when to get in line. Anyway, two new banners for the film have arrived, and guess what? They too make 'R.I.P.D.' look like 'Men in Black' with ghosts.
