A collection of new posters for upcoming films has landed online. Briefly:
- In the Heart of the Sea – The first trailer for Ron Howard‘s telling of the tragedy of the Whaleship Essex landed earlier today, and now we have one of my favorite posters of the year. It’s ominous without being overbearing. The film opens March 13, 2015, and stars Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Tom Holland, Ben Whishaw, and Brendan Gleeson.
- Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb – Meanwhile, we have a contestant in the running for worst poster of the year. I don’t know if this is an awful photoshop job or if everyone is supposed to look like a cardboard cutout. The film opens December 19th, and stars Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Dan Stevens, Ben Kingsley, and as you can see from the poster, lots and lots of other people as well as a monkey with keys.
- American Sniper – The Clint Eastwood drama gets another somber poster. Bradley Cooper stars as U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who served four tours in Iraq and quickly became the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. The film opens in limited release on December 25th.
- Horrible Bosses 2 – Kudos to Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz for trying to make the exact same facial expression. The comedy sequel opens November 26th, and also stars Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, and Jamie Foxx.
- The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies – Because of course there are more posters. The film opens December 17th.
