Poster Mania: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, Fifty Shades of Grey, and More
On the heels of yesterday’s Trailer Round-Up, you’ll see a couple films pulling double duty and releasing new posters. This includes Fifty Shades of Grey and Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (which released nine character posters). I’ve also got a special edition poster for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, a character poster for Inside Out, a banner for Inherent Vice, and traditional posters for Wild and Dragon Blade.
Each poster (and a little about each film) is available below.
First up today is a new special edition poster for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. This movie won’t be headlining these daily posts much longer, though, because the third film in the franchise is set to come out this weekend on November 21st. The poster above shows off star Jennifer Lawrence but the film also returns Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson. It’s again directed by Francis Lawrence. (Source: Flicks and Bits)
To go along with yesterday’s new trailer, I’ve got a steamy new poster for next year’s erotic drama Fifty Shades of Grey. Based on the best-seller, the movie version is directed by Sam Taylor-Wood (Nowhere Boy) and stars Dakota Johnson (The Social Network) and Jamie Dornan (ABC’s Once Upon a Time). Check this movie out February 13, 2015. (Source: E!)
The only gallery of the week comes by the way of Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (which also released a new trailer). Shawn Levy’s next film in the franchise again stars Owen Wilson, Robin Williams, Ben Stiller, and more. The family pic will hit theaters in about a month on December 19th. (Source: Comingsoon)
Speaking of character posters, the first debuted for Pixar’s film Inside Out. The movie, for those that don’t know, focuses on emotions. Therefore, a character poster featuring Sadness makes sense. Sadness will be voiced by Phyllis Smith (NBC’s The Office) and the voice cast also includes Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, and comedian Lewis Black. Pete Docter’s (Up) latest comes out June 19, 2015.

Inherent Vice features today’s only banner and it’s a stylish one. Paul Thomas Anderson’s (There Will Be Blood) comedy-drama stars Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon, and the aforementioned Owen Wilson. Of all the movies featured today, I’m probably most excited for this one! It’ll hit theaters on December 12th. (Source: Comingsoon)
Speaking of Reese Witherspoon, I’ve attached a poster of her in Jean-Marc Vallee’s (Dallas Buyers Club) Wild. Like a couple other movies featured today, this one is based on a novel. Witherspoon looks to be an Oscar contender in this pic (that’s set to release December 5th). Check out the poster above! (Source: Empire)
Today’s final poster is for Dragon Blade. If you’re like me, you probably hadn’t heard of this movie before today. However, names like Jackie Chan, Adrien Brody (The Pianist), and John Cusack should have you at least a little excited. Daniel Lee’s (White Vengeance) action flick releases in China next year but doesn’t have a specific U.S. release date…yet. Until then, check out the poster. (Source: Collider)
