    At any rate, despite my last off-topic post, I'd personally like to see Anakin, Luke, and Leia in the background as if to kind of overlook everything else on the poster, as they are (or will be) all gone from the saga, as it was about them.

    Have them portrayed in something of a "Force-Ghosty fashion", somewhat transparent, as they fade into Star Wars lore, and we say goodbye.

    Poster doesn't mean start of the marketing. The marketing actually already started.
    First we got the teaser in April. In May Vanity will cover a lot of TROS stuff. We also have the Empire magazine.
    In July we'll get the BTS reel. October official trailer and poster. November/December international trailers and TV spots. It worked fine for TFA, TLJ and R1. Solo failed because they hadn't time to do this exact marketing.

    All these alt posters people put out reminds me how bad like 95% of studio posters are now. Tragic. Upsetting. Loathsome

    That's actually the best episode 9 poster I've seen.

    I don't know how they can choose such awful official posters with so many creative minds out there.

    It's so bizzare how studios resort to same schlock crap for posters. ESPECIALLY Disney right now with Marvel and Star Wars.
    Photoshopped heads around other photoshopped heads. 0 art. -59739 creativity

    Just for shits and giggles:

    regardless of quality of the film, these movies had effective posters. Most are highly simplistic focusing on bold contrasting colors to pop and catch your eye. The lines are clean and clear. Each one tells you a little bit about the story and the tone of the film.

    MV5BMTUwMzI5ODEwNF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNjAzNjI2MDI@._V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_.jpg sb_teaser2_1-sht_v3a_online_lg_44ecdb4e.jpeg pp012018-orientexpress.jpg 31Jm6-mPpeL.jpg

    On the converse, you get some less than good posters that often hit one good thing, but lack any sort of depth to them. They look thrown together to use the IP to just get you to go "yeah sure" they probably took 5 minutes in creative to slap it together and get it done as quickly and cheaply as possible.




    ECwJ8k6XkAERepT.jpg jurassic-world-fallen-kingdom-JW2_Adv1Sheet_TREX_2_preview_rgb-720x1139.jpg A1t8xCe9jwL._SY679_.jpg MV5BMjM1OTMxNzUyM15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNjYzMTIzOTE@._V1_.jpg



    For the sake of this thread, let's compare the two Star Wars posters.
    TLJ has essentially 2 main colors. Black and Red. They contrast harshly. Then you have the burst of blue shining through the the middle fading into red. The lines are clean. It's easy to see. Very little extra. Hyper simplistic style. It tells you the story of TLJ. Rey stuck between Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren. The fading of the lightsaber from blue to red signifies her being pulled away from the light towards Kylo.

    TROS poster does the colors mostly right. It uses Blue and Red effectively in terms of the lightsabers and the lightning. However where we get into trouble is with Palpatine in the background (foreshadowing!). He is a transparent blue. So he obscures the galaxy behind him but not fully so specks of white shine through but then his eyes are there and it's clear now they used a toy model for it so it looks off for a movie poster. Why is Palpatine blue? It doesn't make a whole lot of sense when you also have Rey as blue unless it's a hint to her lineage. That could work but in the poster they clearly use blue for good and red for bad. So it's sort of a mixing of things. It's a muddled mess. Simplify it. Clean it up and this general idea can work well.

    And for fun:

    The Void is two colors. Black and White. It's called "The Void" and the poster communicates everything you'd need to know about a movie called the void with one poster.

    Suicide Squad is a pastel and photoshop nightmare. The pastel color palate is a nice refresher for the genre and posters in general. However when you throw the photoshop heads over this style of "punk" art if you will, it becomes a muddled mess. It clashes and doesn't sit well on the eyes. Why not clean it up and add the characters drawn in this style rather than random gunk and photoshopped heads?

    I will even admit to liking bad posters at times just because I like the property. (I own several bad ones because Star Wars/Marvel)
