Ahead of San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, Lionsgate has unveiled a collection of The Expendables 3 characters posters, and they’re a bit, um, different.  Instead of the grit and grime of all the other marketing for the action franchise, these new posters go the opposite route and paint Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, and Co. in some bright primary colors.  I’m not sure these posters are “good” necessarily, but it’s certainly a welcome change from the bland marketing thus far.  If only the actual films were this lively.

If you liked the recently released character posters for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but thought to yourself, “Hey, these things could sure use a bit more … motion,” then boy are you gonna love these new motion posters!  Clearly meant for smartphones or some other type of vertically inclined viewing device, Paramount has released one new motion poster featuring each of the heroes-in-a-half shell in action.  Not only do we get a brief listen to what Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello sound like, but we get an idea of how their personalities will play out on screen.  They’re actually quite well done (aside from their orientation).

Starring Megan Fox, Will ArnettWilliam FichtnerAlan RitchsonPete PloszekJeremy HowardNoel Fisher, and Danny Woodburn, with Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub voicing Leonardo and Splinter respectively, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens August 8th.  Hit the jump to take a look at the new motion posters.

New EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS Posters and Images Place Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton in Ancient Egypt

Ahead of the trailer debut later today, 20th Century Fox has released the first Exodus: Gods and Kings posters as well as some new high-resolution images from director Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic.  The film finds Christian Bale filling the role of Moses while Joel Edgerton (Warrior) plays Ramses, and it looks to be a rather curious picture.  The Australia-born Edgerton isn’t exactly the epitome of an ancient Egyptian, and the eclectic cast is filled out by the likes of Aaron Paul, Sir Ben Kingsley, John Turturro, and Sigourney Weaver.  We’ll have a much better idea of what to expect once the trailer hits, but for now these posters and images are certainly tantalizing.

Hit the jump to take a look at the new Exodus: Gods and Kings posters and images, and check back later to watch the trailer.  The film opens in theaters on December 5th.

Evidence Surfaces in New GONE GIRL Teaser Posters [Updated]

It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything new from David Fincher’s adaptation of the Gillian Flynn Best Seller, Gone Girl.  In fact, I’d almost forgotten the movie was on the way until I caught a trailer before a screening of Deliver Us From Evil the other night.  However, that’s changing fast because we’ve got a brand new trailer for the October 3rd release set to arrive on Monday, July 7th and this time around, 20th Century Fox is giving us not one, but four teaser images to go along with it.

Running with a more immersive marketing method, the campaign is dishing out four “evidence bags,” all with items pertaining to Amy Dunne’s (Rosamund Pike) disappearance.  So far we’ve got one with a photo from Nick (Ben Affleck) and Amy’s wedding in it, one with a seemingly burnt note dated July 5, 2012 that reads, “This man may kill me,” and another with a little lingerie tucked inside it.  The fourth image has yet to surface, but you can check out the first three Gone Girl teaser posters after the jump.  Don’t forget to come back on Monday to watch the new trailer. [Update: We've added the fourth and final poster to the article.]

The Vargulf isn’t the only monster within Hemlock Grove.  The second season of the Eli Roth-produced Netflix series is set to debut on July 11th, and it’ll involve a brand new dark force moving into town, something dubbed, “The Big Bad.”  On top of that, the Godfreys are stuck dealing with a heap of family drama thanks to the events of the first season.  Roman (Bill Skarsgård) wants nothing to do with his mother (Famke Janssen), Shelley’s (Madeleine Martin) gone and then poor Norman (Dougray Scott) is all alone, and all of this tragedy is personified in these new Hemlock Grove season 2 posters.

Hit the jump to catch the designs for Norman, Shelley, Olivia and one particularly unsettling poster for Roman, too.  With the release of Hemlock Grove’s new season fast approaching, Netflix plans to unveil even more character posters and, odds are, the next set will feature the Rumanceks, and possibly newcomer Madeline Brewer’s (Orange is the New Black) character, too.

Groot, Rocket, and Gamora Get New GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Posters; Michael Rooker’s Yondu Teased in New Image

Only one superhero movie remains for Summer 2014, and fittingly Marvel will be bookending the blockbuster season.  We previously saw a string of Guardians of the Galaxy posters released that highlighted each character, but a few more posters have now landed online that give the CG characters Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) and Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) their own one-sheets, as well as a deadly new poster for Zoe Saldana’s Gamora.  Moreover, writer/director James Gunn has also shared a new image that teases Michael Rooker as Yondu.  I continue to look forward to the film, but I’m hoping Disney doesn’t go into marketing overload and start revealing scenes from the third act in the final leg of the film’s promotion.

GOTHAM Posters Tease Penguin, The Riddler, Poison Ivy, and More

Given the level of interest it’s generating, you’d think Fox had brought back Christopher Nolan to direct its new Batman TV show.  Fans are eager to get a look at Gotham when the series debuts this fall, and Fox is happily satiating the interest by doling out bits and pieces of the show here and there.  Today, the network has released a collection of Gotham posters that give us a look at the characters that will be populating the show’s iteration of Gotham City.  A Batman prequel series of sorts, Gotham focuses on the exploits of a young James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) as his navigates his way through the Gotham police department and strikes up a friendship with the recently orphaned Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz).  It’s an interesting way to tap into the comic book fever, but all of this is moot if the show isn’t any good.  Here’s hoping for the best.

Hit the jump to take a look at the Gotham character posters, which also feature Robin Lord Taylor as Penguin, Cory Michael Smith as Riddler, Camren Bicondova as Catwoman, and Clare Foley as Poison Ivy.  Gotham debuts on Fox this fall.

New TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Trailer and Posters Bring the Dubstep to Introduce Shredder

Paramount Pictures has released a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer as well as a collection of character posters for director Jonathan Liebesman’s adaptation of the popular property.  In the new live-action iteration, a city is in the iron grip of Shredder (William Fichtner) and the Foot Clan, and it’s up to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, along with the help of reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and her cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), to stop Shredder and save the day.  There’s a bit of a disconnect in the trailer in that, aesthetically, the film looks like Transformers, but the tone seems geared towards a younger, less serious audience.  Even Shredder, which we get a good look at here, just looks like a modified Transformer.  I think more colorful/goofy is the way to go with this franchise (you can’t make a “gritty” TMNT without it coming off as ridiculous), but I still can’t tell who this movie is aimed at.  And then there’s the dubstep.

New GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Image Featuring Djimon Hounsou as Korath; Plus Hi-Res Character Posters

guardians-of-the-galaxy-image-posters

Following last week’s flurry of character posters, a new Guardians of the Galaxy image has been released from the upcoming Marvel film, revealing an official look at Djimon Hounsou as Korath.  Director James Gunn’s space-set adventure revolves around an unlikely group of outlaws that must work together in order to save the universe, and judging by the emphasis on one specific orb in a number of images and the trailers—and now this Hounsou image—I imagine this is the film’s MacGuffin.  In addition to the close look at Korath, Disney has also released high-resolution versions of the previously released character posters, which provide a closer look at the principal misfits.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR – See the New-and-Improved Eva Green Poster Approved by the MPAA

eva-green-sin-city-poster-comparison

Remember those puzzles where two images are laid side by side and you have to spot the differences?  Well, that’s kind of what the new Sin City: A Dame to Kill For posters featuring Eva Green are like, just with more boobs.  If you’re just getting caught up on this little controversy, it all started when the MPAA rejected a risque poster for The Weinstein Company film.  Green herself then responded to the non-news story in full support of the film and the poster.  The latest (and likely last) news on this issue is that the MPAA has approved a slightly photoshopped poster that’s more to their liking.

Also starring Jessica AlbaMickey RourkeRosario DawsonJoseph Gordon-LevittJosh Brolin, Bruce WillisJaime KingDennis HaysbertChristopher MeloniJeremy PivenRay LiottaJuno Temple, Stacy Keach, and Julia Garner, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens on August 22nd.  Hit the jump for both posters and to see if you can tell them apart.
