I think a thread with the latest movie posters and/or trailers would be a good idea, so here it is.

Sweeney Todd
Posted Image
Looks pretty good I think, and seems to capture the mood of the film well.

3:10 To Yuma
Posted Image
I hadn't heard of this film until I saw this kickass poster the other day. Good starcast, good director....should be a good western! The Trailer

A Righteous Kill
Posted Image
The poster for the in production Pacino-Deniro film. Simple poster, but I think the two actors would be able to sell the film...so it is effective.

Any thoughts / Any more posters/trailers?

That Grindhouse poster is BEAUTIFUL!

Trailer for the latest Farrelly Bros/Ben Stiller film, The HeartBreak Kid
Doesn't look too bad, I like how the tone shifts partway through the trailer. It seems a tad like Along Came Polly, another Stiller film, though.

Darjeeling Limited (New Wes Anderson)

Posted Image
The story involves three brothers (played by Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman) who take a train ride (the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway) through India in order to grow closer together. The film also stars Amara Karan, Anjelica Huston and Natalie Portman.
Shame Portman's in it but should still be great.

This is said to be awesome

I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK (New Park Chan-Wook)
http://upload.wikime...pedia/en/0/0e/I
Young-goon, mentally deranged and frequently electro-charging herself with a transistor radio, has been admitted into a mental institution. Firmly believing herself to be a cyborg, she refuses to consume food like a human being. Il-soon is another patient, who catches the eye of Young-goon and soon becomes a close friend. Il-soon is now confronted with the biggest task – to cure Young-goon’s mental problem and have her eat real food.

The film follows Llewelyn Moss, a man out hunting near the Rio Grande who comes across a drug deal gone sour — leaving behind a cache of heroin, two million dollars and several bodies. When two more men end up murdered, the local sheriff realizes Moss and his wife need protection. Things turn dangerous when various men, ranging from ruthless freelancers to ex-Special Forces members, turn up to find out the truth and destroy all evidence.

American Gangster should be kickass, the trailer certainly suggests so.

Southland Tales

Very very 'meh'.

All i want from it is De Niro on Jonathan Ross(won't happen)for a chit chat. With Gervais and The buxom Miss Goldman involved maybe someone can have a whisper in his ear. He's done Richard And Judy why not Rossy

John Rambo Promo Video

This could be fun Agent Crush

A short time from now in a neighbourhood not far away…

The World has become a mash of high technology; and transportation, politics and industry have evolved. However much remains unchanged, like New York’s East Side, where the buildings are timeless. Another thing that still remains is crime, and like the technology, it’s got a little bizarre!

The World Security Network was founded on a premise to maintain the balance and fight crime everywhere, an amalgamation of all law enforcement on a planetary scale, comprising the best of the military, the police and other services.

To this end, a new type of secret agent has been, quite literally, created. Ultra technology and artificial intelligence are commonplace, and Agent Crush is the ultimate evolution of both, but in humanoid form. Just one problem, a few things are not working quite right.

Crush is accident prone: everything he touches goes to pieces, every situation he enters becomes a war zone. Against this is his creator’s faith that given time the problems will be solved, unfortunately the powers that be don’t share this optimistic outlook.

Things are made worse by the revelation that the original project prototype – Boris - is on the loose. Boris Goudphater’s brain was – quite literally – twisted. Now having escaped from a recycling masher halfway through cycles, he is as seriously demented physically as he is mentally.

Goudphater has a gargantuan plan for the World - where he sees a great future of peace for all, co-operation on an unprecedented scale, and a world of tranquility – but first he has to rid the planet of all the humans living there.

Armed with a number of high tech devices, and accompanied by his genius inventor Spanners and Spanners' daughter Cassie, they must stop Goudphater at all costs, and discover the secret behind his plans before it is too late.

The action is a race across the planet, from Earth orbit to the frozen wastes of Siberia, and the mean streets of The Bronx to the heart of an erupting volcano.

Will Crush save the day?
