Did y’all catch the teaser trailer for Thor 2: The Dark World, which hit this morning (you can check it out HERE)? I dunno about you, but, it took me by surprise. Coming off the first flick, being as adequate as it was, I didn’t expect much for the sequel. This time around, however, things appear be on a much grander scale. More risk, more at stake, and a hell of a lot more epic. Bottom line: it doesn’t look as cheesy as the first, it actually seems like it’s taking itself seriously. Heck, even the posters for Thor 2 are looking pretty slick…
The talented and legendary Olly Moss has created cast and crew posters for TTDW focusing on Loki, Odin and Heimdall. Check em’ out above and below. If you look closely, the ray from the bifrost bridge and the sky combine to form Thor’s Mjolnir.
And Olly’s payment for the work? One of the Mjolnir hammers used in the film.
Awesome posters. The Hammer is a well deserved payment. Heh, I only wish Marvel would reward Nerd Bastards with a Hammer, for all the promotion we give lol.
Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World,” in theaters November 8, 2013, continues the big screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
With the release of Thor: The Dark World almost a year from now and filming still underway, you wouldn’t expect to see an actual poster anytime soon. Sure, there’s the official typography for the film, above, that was first seen when the title was announced but that’s not really a poster. This is a poster,
Almost, or as artist Olly Moss tweets it,
This won’t be the final poster or even a teaser poster released for the film, but rather it’s a special poster made especially for the cast and crew which they’ll receive when production ends. Moss created a similar poster for the end of production on Thor, you can see it, along with more of his fabulous art, on his website.
What do you guys think of the first kinda, sorta promo poster of Thor 2?
You’re probably familiar with the spectacular posters created by Mondo, the art boutique associated with the Alamo Drafthouse. They’ve made awesome poster designs for everything from Star Wars to Hellboy to TRON to Scott Pilgrim. Mondo likes to focus, “on bringing art back to movie posters,” and they work with some of the best artists available.
With The Avengers releasing in two weeks they’ve announced they’ll be releasing a special seven poster series to celebrate. One can only assume each poster will feature a specific member of the super team and I cannot wait to see what kick ass designs they’ve come up with. Today they shared the posters for both Black Widow and Hawkeye and they are amazing! Olly Moss created Black Widow’s poster and Tom Whalen was responsible for Hawkeye’s. Check ’em out below,
I really do love it when artists re-imagine posters for movies and give them their own creative spin.
This time, artist Olly Moss decided to create posters for each of the original Star Wars trilogy movies (Episodes IV, V, and VI).
Check out the amazing work below the jump!
Which one is your favorite? Personally, my vote goes to the Empire Strikes Back poster, but that’s because you can’t go wrong with Boba Fett.
I don’t know about you but I am a HUGE fan of ABC’s Lost. I never thought I would be able to get into it but a visit to my mother’s house in Ft. Lauderdale, FL changed my mind. She made me watch it and it was an obsession after that. It is such a thrilling and mind boggling show that it actually forces you to concentrate and think. It’s a mind workout every time an episode begins and is continuously turning the gears in your head the entire show and after it ends! And its something you talk about for days after. Well, If you’re an obsessed Lost fan like myself, I’m sure you will enjoy some art inspired by Lost. Check it out….
