Poster Mania: Guardians of the Galaxy, Big Hero 6, and More
Today’s Poster Mania could almost be renamed Character Poster Mania because a lot of posters are of specific characters. Herein you’ll find character posters for Guardians of the Galaxy, Big Hero 6, and The Boxtrolls. Singular posters are available for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Horns, Ouija, and Art and Craft. Like always, I’ve tried to vary the genres so there’s something for virtually everyone below.
If you missed yesterday’s trailers (which featured new ones for Big Hero 6, Horns, and Ouija), check out that post.
Each day we get closer to Marvel’s next superhero franchise. Joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe on August 1st are the Guardians of the Galaxy (directed by Super’s James Gunn) and I couldn’t be more excited. Most know that Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper star in the movie; however, to give you looks at some of the secondary characters (and villains), check out the six character posters below.

I also have six character posters for another Marvel pic, Big Hero 6. This project is noteworthy because it marks the first collaboration between Marvel and Disney (it’s a Marvel property made by Disney studios). Don Hall and Chris Williams co-direct this one that’ll star Damon Wayans, Jr. (FOX’s New Girl), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids), and Alan Tudyk (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story). Check out the gallery below for all the posters. (Source: HitFix)
The final one-sheet for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was sent over this past week, too. Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s sequel has a great cast (which can be seen in the poster) that includes Jessica Alba, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin, and Eva Green (among others). This one releases August 22nd.
Back to the character posters, this time I have four for The Boxtrolls. This title may not be a household name right now, but Laika (the company behind Coraline and ParaNorman) is the one putting this out so it certainly should be. Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi co-direct this stop-motion film that’ll voice star Ben Kingsley and Elle Fanning (Super 8). Look for more on this project when it hits Comic-Con later this week before the movie releases for good on September 26th.
The Daniel Radcliffe-fronted dark fantasy Horns has been on a tear lately. Besides today’s poster, there was a poster last week as well as a new trailer yesterday. Alexandre Aja (Mirrors) is behind this project that should hit theaters October 31st. (Source: Collider)
Speaking of trailers, I had the newest for Ouija yesterday, too. The horror added a poster to tout the films upcoming release (on October 24th). Stiles White’s film stars Douglas Smith (HBO’s Big Love) and Olivia Cooke (The Quiet Ones). The poster is above! (Source: ScreenRant)
Finishing things out today is a poster for the documentary Art and Craft. I decided to include this one because the premise seems pretty interesting; the movie will be about one of the nation’s most renowned art forgers. Sam Cullman, Jennifer Grausman, and Mark Becker all share directing duties. Unfortunately, a wide release isn’t known for this one quite yet. (Source: IMDb)
