A couple of new movie posters for film I'm looking forward to this summer hit the 'net over the last few days.
First up, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
They are obviously trying to capture the style and artistry of the original Indy film posters, but it's obvious that this is a Photoshop-constructed poster. Not a hand-painted item like what was done for Raiders or Temple of Doom.
While all the composition and coloring is right for a piece of art trying to capture that Saturday Matinee feeling - something about the poster seems cold and artificial.
No bother. If nothing else, it should silence the critics who complained that the first poster depicted an Indiana Jones who couldn't possibly be the Dr. Jones who was going to show up in the movie. The image of Harrison Ford in this latest poster clearly reflects the version of the slightly aged Indy that will grace the theaters this summer.
The other poster was for Iron Man
I'm not interested in deconstructing this poster. I just think Iron Man is going to be a fantastic high-tech action/adventure film. The more I see, the more I like. I'm looking forward to seeing the movie and wanted to share another image.
