In a few days ShoWest starts up in Las Vegas. If you haven’t heard of ShoWest, it’s a convention for theater owners and operators to see what’s new in their industry and be wined and dined by the Hollywood Studios. Basically, it’s Comic-Con for the people that make big decisions in the movie industry.
But the other reason ShoWest is cool is the studios send tons of movie posters and theater standees to the convention to pimp what they have coming. And while the convention doesn’t begin till Monday, a friend of the site was there tonight and was able to snap a number of photos of what’s already on display. So hit the jump for the posters for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Little Fockers, Get Low, Beastly, Charlie St. Cloud, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, a 75th Anniversary 20th Century Fox poster, Ramona and Beezus, Mercy, The A-Team, The Losers, Toy Story 3 and theater standees for Kick-Ass, Nightmare on Elm Street, Clash of the Titans, and a lot more!
Finally, on Monday I’ll be at the convention and I’ll be reporting from Vegas all week. I’ve heard they’re screening Toy Story 3, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, The Karate Kid, and a few other big films. Needless to say, I’m going to try and see all of them and hopefully report on what I thought of the films.
Actually, one last thing, the posters from Universal look like they’re just promo posters and not the final releases. But who knows.
Update – I’ve confirmed the Scott Pilgrim poster is just a promo made for ShoWest. It’s still cool. Look for more movie posters and standees from ShoWest tomorrow or Monday.
