Poster Mania: Insurgent, Foxcatcher, Paddington, and More
Hello everyone and welcome to yet another Poster Mania. On the heels of yesterday’s Trailer Round-Up, there are a couple repeats today (Paddington and Ex Machina). Other than those, today’s post features Insurgent, Foxcatcher, A Most Violent Year, Blackhat, and Murder of a Cat to make for a pretty awesome week of posters!
Check them all out below.
Perhaps the biggest poster release of the week belongs to the next movie in the Divergent series. Titled Insurgent and directed this time by Robert Schwentke (Flightplan), the movie picks up after the events of this year’s successful adaptation starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James. They’re both back and can be seen in the gallery below. You can also follow the link to see some sweet motion posters.
I’ve attached the latest poster for Foxcatcher for you guys as well. The poster shows the three main stars (Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, and the creepy-looking Steve Carell) in Bennett Miller’s (Moneyball) upcoming drama. This one has Oscar written all over it, so I’m excited to see it come next weekend on November 14th. (Source: IndieWire)
There’s a new poster for Paul King’s (Bunny and the Bull) comedy, Paddington, to go along with its newest trailer. It’s starring Hugh Bonneville (ITV’s Downton Abbey) and Ben Whishaw (Skyfall) – as the voice of the iconic bear. I personally like the poster but am still a little apprehensive about the whole movie. We’ll see January 16, 2015. (Source: IndieWire)
I also found what could possibly be our last poster for A Most Violent Year. This movie is J.C. Chandor’s (All is Lost) next film and it stars Oscar Isaac (more on him later). He’s joined by an impressive lot of talent that includes Jessica Chastain, Albert Brooks (Drive), and more when it releases for a qualifying run on December 31st. Check out the poster above.

Next up is the latest poster for Blackhat starring Chris Hemsworth. Michael Mann’s (Heat) film is about stopping a cyber criminal from some sort of conspiracy. Although it’s not the greatest logline, I will admit I am anticipating what this has to offer come January 16, 2015 when it releases alongside Paddington. Check out the latest poster above.

Also going along with its new trailer are a couple posters for Ex Machina. This adaptation stars Domhnall Gleeson (About Time) and Oscar Isaac (again) and is directed by Alex Garland (marking his directorial debut). I don’t know a ton about this project but the posters at least seem interesting. This movie doesn’t hit theaters until April 10, 2015 so we’ll have plenty more on this film. (Source: Collider)
Until today, I didn’t know a whole lot about the movie Murder of a Cat. And while I’m still not an expert by any means, I do know that Gillian Greene’s directorial debut (which is billed as a comedy thriller) stars J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man), Greg Kinnear (Little Miss Sunshine), and Nikki Reed (Twilight). The Burn After Reading-like poster is above for the film about, you guessed it, the murder of a cat. This one is still awaiting a cinematic date after debuting at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. (Source: IMP Awards)
