Poster Mania: Transformers: Age of Extinction, Big Hero 6, The Giver, and More
Welcome back to the week. As we get closer to the summer movies (which have arguably already started), I wanted to give you a glimpse at the latest posters. There are some repeats from yesterday’s Trailer Round-Up, including Transformers: Age of Extinction, Big Hero 6, Foxcatcher, and Get On Up. You can also see character posters for The Giver and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Lastly, there’s a poster for Kingsman: The Secret Service.
Check them out below (including the galleries when necessary).
Another week, another Transformers: Age of Extinction poster. Like all of the previous one, the above poster features a giant Transformer juxtaposed against the smaller human characters. Michael Bay’s fourth Transformers pic will hit theaters June 27th and brings in star Mark Wahlberg to spice things up. Make sure to check out the new international trailer yesterday, too.

Up until last week, we didn’t have a whole lot to report for Disney’s Big Hero 6. Disney’s anticipated superhero film (the first of their kind) released a trailer last week alongside the above poster. As of now, the movie features the voices of T.J. Miller (HBO’s Silicon Valley) and Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids) and will come out November 7th. The movie is co-directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams. Keep your ears and eyes out for more information and marketing for this one.
Seven character posters were sent over for Phillip Noyce’s (Salt) The Giver adaptation. The utopian story will feature Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, and even Taylor Swift (among others). Check them all out below before the movie lands in theaters August 15th.
We were also sent five character posters for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Robert Rodriguez returns to the franchise with Frank Miller (comic book writer and director of The Spirit) co-directing. For those that don’t know, the star-studded cast includes names like Jessica Alba, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Bruce Willis (among others). Check out the comic book-inspired posters below because they’re pretty cool.
Just like Big Hero 6 and Transformers, I also featured a trailer for Foxcatcher yesterday. The movie looks to be pretty exciting and recently made pretty big waves at Cannes. I also really like the debut poster (above) and am excited to see what Steve Carell does with this meaty role. Keep Bennett Miller’s (Moneyball) Foxcatcher on your radar and look for it in theaters starting November 14th. (Source: Bleeding Cool News)
We were also sent over the first poster for Matthew Vaughn’s (X-Men: First Class) Kingsman: The Secret Service. The poster looks a lot better than the first trailer I caught (which debuted in front of X-Men: Days of Future Past). We’ll see how this one shapes up, but as of now it is set for an October 24th playdate with Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson starring.
Also like Transformers: Age of Extinction, Big Hero 6, and Foxcatcher, Get On Up is a returner from yesterday’s Trailer Round-Up. The James Brown biopic looks like it could be an exciting film, especially since it stars the up-and-coming Chadwick Boseman (42). Tate Taylor (The Help) is also reunited with Octavia Spencer and Viola Davis. Expect more from this film before it comes out on August 1st. Also, check out Boseman as James Brown above!
