Poster Mania: Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and More
Another week, another Poster Mania. In this week’s edition, I’ve attached character posters for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and That Awkward Moment. I’ve also collected the latest from The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, How to Train Your Dragon 2, The Nut Job, Nymphomaniac, and Enemies Closer.
Check out yesterday’s trailers while you’re at it.
Five more Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues character posters came online after my initial batch. These ones feature some of the newcomers (like Kristen Wiig). My favorite poster, though, shows our favorite dog in Baxter. Anchorman 2 releases on December 20th with director Adam McKay and stars Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner returning. (Source: IMP Awards)
Another poster for the existential drama The Secret Life of Walter Mitty also released. Walter Mitty stars and is directed by Ben Stiller. Kristen Wiig also appears in this movie that releases on December 25th. It’s technically a remake of a movie that released in 1947 based on James Thurber’s 1939 short story.
The first poster for next year belongs to How to Train Your Dragon 2. Set to release on June 13, 2014, the poster is definitely more of a teaser. The actual movie will return voice stars Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Jonah Hill, and Craig Ferguson. Director Dean DeBlois will also return. Check out the poster above.
The Nut Job, another animated movie, also released a poster fairly recently. This one is set to release way earlier (January 17, 2014) and uses Will Arnett (Netflix’s Arrested Development) and Liam Neeson’s voices. Peter Lepeniotis is the director and he is adapting his own short into a full length feature, which is exciting to some degree.
Four character posters show off the characters played by Zac Efron, Miles Teller (The Spectacular Now), Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station), and Imogen Poots (28 Weeks Later) in That Awkward Moment. The comedy won’t release until January 31, 2014, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting to know our main characters in the gallery below. For those wondering, Tom Gormican directed the movie.
Two more posters came online for Nymphomaniac as well. They’re very much like the character posters we got a few weeks ago. Lars von Trier’s (Melancholia) epic sex addiction movie (I promise I’m saying “epic” because it’s a two-part, five-plus hour film) doesn’t have a U.S. release date; however, I can tell you the movie stars Charlotte Gainsbourg (featured above), Shia LaBeouf, and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man).
The final poster belongs to Enemies Closer. The action thriller is directed by Peter Hyams (The Relic) and most notably stars Jean-Claude Van Damme. I can’t tell you a whole lot more about the movie, but if you’d like to see it, it’ll play on Video on Demand services starting January 24, 2014.
Thanks for checking in. Have a great day!
