    Keep in mind that no trailer can really prepare you for it.

    The trailer's also on DailyMotion, but it's a film I'm glad I saw without seeing the trailer first. Much preferred the slow reveal.

    It is an extremely tricky one to talk about without giving some massive spoilers away. I still think though that no trailer could really give off any indications as to what the film actually is though, if that makes any sense. Anyway, posters...

    Not a huge fan of the Trek films (though Wrath of Khan is legit) but I always liked the posters and DVD covers:

    Part way through cleaning up my office and I just found a collection of old posters which is mostly 80's metal bands but it also includes original movie posters from a cinema in Melbourne for Blade Runner, Rambo FB II, Animal House, Death Wish II and The Adventures Of Bazza McKenzie. They probably haven't seen the light of day for 20 years.

    Some might be interested in a podcast dedicated to this very subject, aptly named The Poster Boys. Check out the episode focused entirely on posters for David Lynch movies, or Barbara ‘Basha’ Baranowska, one of the best Polish designers who did the famous Possession poster (just fast forward a bit to avoid some pathetic and childish political moaning). I also enjoyed the episode on 90's posters. The latest is on Italian horror posters.
