Tired of those boring-ass Photoshopped floating head jobs that flaccid studio marketing departments call posters? So are we, which is why we've singled out the most distinguished, eye-catching promotional pieces to come out this year.
Taking the old-fashioned hand-painted approach always stands out, but sometimes all it takes is using photography in an interesting, innovative way to get some really challenging stories across in a single image.
Here are the absolute best general release or alternate posters of 2012.
"Magic Mike" hits movie theaters this weekend, putting its star, Channing Tatum, right where we want him: Front and center.
This Steven Soderbergh film marks the fourth and unfortunately the last time we'll be seeing the former "Step Up" stud on the big screen this year. Can we just fast-forward to 2013?
Let his Hot People Looking Hot gallery cast its spell upon you.
This week: In the action flick "Haywire," MMA fighter Gina Carano knocks around Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Channing Tatum as an assassin on a mission to confront the employer who set her up.
Also new this week is Madonna in the director's seat for the period romance "W.E.," the ensemble rom-com "New Year's Eve," and new Blu-ray editions of "Clueless" and "Men in Black." Get More »
Oh what a difference a hit movie makes.
After making her feature film debut with Steven Soderbergh's "Haywire" last month, former MMA star Gina Carano has signed on to star in John Stockwell's "In the Blood."
The action thriller follows a husband who disappears while vacationing in the Caribbean with his wife (Carano). But this lady is no damsel in distress — the grieving wife passionately and recklessly pursues the men whom she believes kidnapped and killed him.
"'True Romance' and 'Braveheart' -- those are two of my favorite movies. What I like about ['True Romance'] is that two people meet each other from different walks of life and believe in each other instantly -- the idea that two people can just have each other's back. And they found each other, and they believed in each other, and they had each other's back without question, without research on the other person, without past relationships getting in the way, and I just completely loved that."
"On top of the fact that I love Patricia Arquette's character in it, and how she’s so feminine and yet she has the coolest fight scene to date that I know of, in that hotel room. And it’s so realistic -- it shows the sh** beat out of her and blood and everything, and it shows how she kind of conquered through that and her spirit was still strong. I just loved her character in it, I really adored her character in it, that she was still so feminine but still so strong. So I just love that movie; I can watch it over and over."
Gina Carano can currently be seen kicking the asses of Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Channing Tatum, and Antonio Banderas as the fugitive covert operative Mallory Kane in Steven Soderbergh’s action-packed "Haywire."
Looking good is one thing. Looking good and kicking ass simultaneously is quite another, as Kate Beckinsale has proved time and time again in the "Underworld" movies. You think wearing that skin-tight leather bodysuit while leaping, running, shooting automatic weapons and beating Lycans to a pulp is easy? Have you ever tried it?
In honor of Beckinsale's newest ass-kicking showcase, "Underworld: Awakening," not to mention former MMA star Gina Carano's buzzed-about turn in "Haywire" -- and just to be sure we don't piss either of them off -- we tip our hats to nine female characters we wouldn't want to cross.
Next to these babes, we'd be toast. Get More »
If you thought Uma Thurman killed it as The Bride in "Kill Bill," just wait till you get a load of MMA superstar Gina Carano in "Haywire" (out this Friday).
In the Steven Soderbergh ("Contagion")-directed spy thriller, Carano plays Mallory Kane, a freelance covert operative, who gets double-crossed by her employer and sets out to clear her name.
As a first-timer, Carano turns in a surprisingly stellar performance. What she hits out of the ballpark, though, are the film's many action sequences, where Carano -- who did all her own stunts -- gets to let loose and do what does best: fight.
In honor of Carano's ass-kicking in "Haywire," we've rounded up the top nine actors who perform their own stunts. Some might surprise you. Get More »
In an already narrow playing field of female actors who play characters as tough as their male counterparts, Gina Carano is just about the only one who’s tougher than most of them. In Steven Soderbergh's new film "Haywire," the former mixed martial arts star not only holds her own against the acting talents of Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor and Antonio Banderas (among others), but she also convincingly beats them all to a bloody pulp.
Carano plays Mallory Kane, a freelance operative who must fight her way to freedom after she’s betrayed by the people who hired her. Conversely, Carano indicated that the experience of shooting her first film was a great collaborative experience. She recently explained to us how her previous career has helped guide her through a whole new one. Get More »
Steven Soderbergh's brand new high octane spy thriller "Haywire" is set to arrive in theaters on Jan. 20 and, just in case you've somehow forgotten why you should be totally jazzed for it, we've prepared a helpful reminder for you — and it involves free copies of both "Ocean's Eleven" and "Traffic" on DVD.
Now is that reason enough to go "Haywire," or what? Get More »
There are two sides to Steven Soderbergh. There's his thinky, intellectual "cinema" side ("The Girlfriend Experience," "Che"), and there's his commercial, star-driven movies side (the "Ocean's" films, "Contagion").
His new spy thriller "Haywire" fits into the second category, with two exceptions: 1) It stars a relative unknown in Gina Carano, a former MMA fighter acting in her first lead film role, and 2) as fun as the "Ocean's" movies are, we've never known a Soderbergh movie to look like it kicks this much ass.
Carano plays an operative hired by governments to do their dirty work for them, until she's double-crossed and has to figure out whom she can trust ... and who deserves her wrath. A glittering supporting cast (Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas and Bill Paxton, to name a few) will be along either to help her or get the hell out of her way. Check out the action in this exclusive TV spot; "Haywire" opens in theaters January 20.
