Poster Mania: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Hercules, and More
Another Tuesday, another Poster Mania. In this week’s post, I’ll start with a focus on July movies (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Hercules, and Tammy) before I get to the lesser-known movies. Besides those three, you can expect to find a new poster for Snowpiercer, The Rover, Are You Here, and Very Good Girls.
Also, check out yesterday’s Trailer Round-Up if you missed that one (it features new trailers for returners Hercules, Are You Here, and Very Good Girls).
The first poster today is for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. This sequel is arguably the summer’s biggest blockbuster (behind Transformers: Age of Extinction), so it certainly makes sense we’re getting a new poster. This Apes film returns Andy Serkis while adding Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) and Keri Russell (FX’s The Americans). Check out the poster above before seeing Matt Reeves’ (Cloverfield) film on July 11th. (Source: IGN)
Along with yesterday’s trailer came today’s new poster for Hercules. As the poster (above) shows, the film is directed by Brett Ratner (Tower Heist) and stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the titular character. This one fights its way into theaters on July 25th. (Source: ScreenCrush)
The only gallery of the day belongs to the comedy film Tammy. In this one, Ben Falcone makes his directorial debut while directing his wife, Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) alongside Susan Sarandon and Dan Aykroyd. Check out all four posters below and keep your eyes out for this one on July 2nd. (Source: IMP Awards)
I’ve also attached a poster for Snowpiercer – the latest from Bong Joon-ho (Mother). This one has quite the cast (including Chris Evans, Octavia Spencer, and Tilda Swinton) and releases already on June 27th. Check out the poster above! (Source: Facebook)
Anticipation is also mounting for David Michod’s (Animal Kingdom) The Rover. This one stars quite the duo – Guy Pearce (Memento) and Robert Pattinson – and is set to come out on June 20th. As for the poster, it is basically an alternative version of a poster I already reported on. (Source: IMP Awards)
Just like a few other movies featured today, Are You Here was last seen yesterday when it released a new trailer. Today you can see the poster (above) for the movie that is written and directed by Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner. As for talent, the film stars Owen Wilson, Amy Poehler, and Zach Galifiankis. This one won’t hit theaters until August 22nd in the U.S. (Source: IMDb)
And just like Hercules and Are You Here, Very Good Girls debuted a new trailer with their new poster. Very Good Girls, for those that don’t know, stars Elizabeth Olsen (Godzilla) and Dakota Fanning (War of the Worlds) and is about a virginity pact. The film is Naomi Foner’s directorial debut with a June 24th release date. (Source: Comingsoon)
