Look, I know that you’re here for the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker poster but we also have Doctor Sleep posters, four each from Frozen 2 and Birds of Prey, one hilarious poster for The Lighthouse, Pixar’s latest Onward, along with new sheets for Dolittle, Bombshell, and Disney’s Jungle Cruise.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
While the trailer for The Rise of Skywalker is great, these posters are both, uh, well they’re pretty good. Neither of them live up to the Last Jedi posters in my opinion, but we’re also probably going to get dozens more posters in the next two months. Still, I really like the main poster (on the left). Nicely echos The Force Awakens poster.
Doctor Sleep is a sequel to The Shining and with any luck it’ll be creepy as hell. These posters are creepy as hell. I dig it.
Frozen 2 has entered this weird place in my mind where the more marketing I see the less excited I am. I don’t exactly get it, but these posters don’t do a lot for me. I sincerely hope, and expect, that the movie will be good but everything I’ve seen lately has left me cold. Weird.
Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of on Harley Quinn
I really hope this movie is as fun and colourful as these posters for the movie are. I am cautiously optimistic but these posters are great. I particularly like the one with the hyena.
The recent trailer revealed that this movie is going to be a lot weirder than previously thought, and this poster also lets us know that these two elf kids will be on a road trip with the lower half of their father. It has a real Weekend at Bernies vibe that I like.
The Lighthouse is not going to be for everyone but I think that everyone should definitely give it a shot. I can’t tell you why without spoiling it, but he seagull poster is pretty goddamned perfect (and hilarious) for this movie. I might make it my phone wallpaper.
I really wish that this looked good. I really do. But it really doesn’t. It sucks that Robert Downey Jr’s first non-Marvel role in 8 years looks like it might be real bad.
Bombshell seems to be headed down the "let’s turn this awful story about awful people into a dark comedy" route that worked for Vice and The Big Short, and I really hope it works for them. It’s a story worth telling and I hope it’s well told.
It’s still kind of unnerving how much they’ve made Charlize Theron look like Megyn Kelly.
Last but not least this week is this old-timey looking poster for Jungle Cruise. I don’t know about you guys but I am 100% for this one. It looks a lot like The Mummy and the adventure serials it paid homage to, which is to say it looks like a ton of fun. Dwayne Johnson and Emily blunt are both charismatic and fun, and they look like they’re having a blast in this. 24th July basically can’t come soon enough.
There you have it folks. Which of these posters are you exited by? What do you think about The Rise of Skywalker posters? Are you looking forward to Frozen 2 or Jungle Cruise? Let me know in the comments or on twitter!
