Poster Mania: Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Muppets Most Wanted, and More
In a less demanding poster week, I’ll have the latest for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Muppets Most Wanted, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, The Monuments Men, 47 Ronin, and Mr. Peabody & Sherman. All of them are below!
Oh, and make sure to check out yesterday’s trailers.
Starting off the run of sequels comes another poster for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Directed by the Russo Brothers (You, Me, and Dupree), the next Marvel movie in line after Thor: The Dark World looks to continue their box office dominance. The poster, like most things Captain America-related, plays up the shield. The movie will release April 4, 2014 and you should definitely check out the debut trailer if you haven’t already.
The sequel to 2011’s The Muppets debuted a first-look poster. Disney’s next Muppet movie, titled Muppets Most Wanted, will again be directed by James Bobin, but it won’t return Jason Segel. However, at least Ricky Gervais (BBC’s The Office), Tina Fey (NBC’s 30 Rock), and Ty Burrell (ABC’s Modern Family) have agreed to come onboard. The movie will release March 21, 2014. (Source: Disney)
The final sequel to debut a poster goes to Adam McKay’s Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Also following a trailer release, the long-in-the-works sequel should be a fun movie when it releases December 20th. The poster shows the News Team (played by Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner) towering over New York City. Remember, they’re kind of a big deal. (Source: IMP Awards)
Even though The Monuments Men has been officially pushed out of 2014, that hasn’t stopped them from continuing the marketing campaign. A pretty simple poster released online with the intent of again showing of the cast, which includes George Clooney (who also directed it), Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin (The Artist), and more. It’ll hit theaters February 7, 2014. (Source: IMP Awards)
Carl Erik Rinsch’s 47 Ronin also released a new poster. 47 Ronin has been around for what seems like forever. It had a proposed late 2012 release date before moving back into 2013 and eventually being delayed to a Christmas Day release date. It stars Keanu Reeves (The Matrix) and the latest poster is above.
I never thought I’d be reporting this much on Mr. Peabody & Sherman…but here I am. It seems to have been all over the place lately, and I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to enclose the latest “character” posters. I say “character” because they’ll all the same character in different disguises. The animated comedy also stars Ty Burrell (as a voice of course) and should release March 7, 2014. It’s directed by Rob Minkoff (The Lion King) and you can see the entire gallery below.
Stop back by tomorrow for the latest photos!
