With CinemaCon starting tomorrow in Las Vegas, I arrived earlier today to take pictures of the new posters on display.  For those unaware, CinemaCon is a convention put on for theater owners in order to get a look at what the studios have to offer for the rest of the year, and where vendors can show new products for theaters to buy.  It’s basically Comic-Con for theater owners.  Besides showing off never before seen footage, the studios often bring the cast and the filmmakers.  Over the course of a few days, Hollywood comes to Las Vegas.  So over the next few days expect tons of updates.  I’ll have new posters, thoughts on the new movie footage, and exclusives interviews.  It should be a fun week.

To start things off, I just spotted the first posters for Spike Lee’s Oldboy and James Wan’s Insidious: Chapter 2.  Hit the jump to check them out.

OLDBOY:

The film stars Josh Bolin as an advertising executive who is kidnapped and imprisoned for 20 years without explanation.  He is abruptly released and sets out to discover the who and why of his captivity, running across a social worker (Elizabeth Olsen) and an illusive man (Sharlto Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.   The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson and James RansoneOldboy opens on October 11th, 2013.

As you can see, the Oldboy poster is emphasizing the twenty years Brolin has been held in captivity.  It’s a solid teaser.

INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2

Director James Wan and screenwriter Leigh Whannell return for the sequel to their 2010 horror hit..  Moreover, the first film’s cast of Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, and Ty Simpkins will also be back to reprise their roles.  As you can see, the poster is as basic as a promo poster can get.  But it works.
