Poster Mania: The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, and More
Welcome to this week’s edition of Poster Mania. After a not-so-crowded Trailer Round-Up, this week’s posters should pick up the slack. Movies like The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, The LEGO Movie, Veronica Mars, Knights of Badassdom, Breathe In, and The Bag Man are all featured below. In the case of Jack Ryan, make sure to check out the full gallery below the poster.
Two new posters for one of this year’s biggest movies, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, came online this past week. Both show off Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Spidey (Andrew Garfield). Marc Webb is returning to helm the project that’ll release on May 2, 2014. (Source: MTV)
A character collage and four individual character posters released for this weekend’s Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. Originally slated as a 2013 release, Kenneth Branagh’s action film starring Chris Pine (Star Trek Into Darkness) will now release on January 17th. Check out the posters below if you want to see the rest of the cast. (Source: Collider)
I also found three character posters for The LEGO Movie. Personally, I love the posters because there’s a sweet one featuring Batman (voiced by Will Arnett). You can also get a look at Channing Tatum and Charlie Day’s (Horrible Bosses) characters, too. The movie, directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (21 Jump Street), releases on February 7th.

Veronica Mars fans will be pleased to see the new poster for the upcoming film adaptation. For those that don’t know, the film finally got backing last year and is coming to fruition soon. You’ll be able to see the movie (with Kristen Bell reprising her role) on March 14th. It’s directed by Rob Thomas (creator of the show). (Source: Yahoo)
Joe Lynch’s horror-comedy Knights of Badassdom also released a poster. Starring Peter Dinklage (HBO’s Game of Thrones) and Steve Zahn (Rescue Dawn), the film looks interesting…to say the least. Of the posters featured this week, “interesting” is definitely the way to describe it as well. The movie will be available starting January 21st in limited theaters. (Source: IGN)
Along with the new trailer I reported on yesterday, a poster came online for Breathe In. Drake Doremus’ (Like Crazy) drama stars Felicity Jones (Like Crazy) and Guy Pearce (Memento). It is currently gearing up for a Sundance run before it’ll release sometime presumably in 2014. More to come on this at a later date. (Source: IndieWire)
The finish things off, I thought I’d report the first poster I’ve seen for The Bag Man. Before I saw the poster, I didn’t know a lot about the movie. And although the poster features the actors involved (John Cusack, Robert De Niro, Rebecca Da Costa), it doesn’t say a lot about the movie. I can tell you that David Grovic’s film is about a man (yes, with a bag) that is waiting for his crime boss to find him. Sound interesting? The movie will release on February 28th. (Source: Collider)
