Poster Mania: Avengers: Age of Ultron, Get Hard, The Gunman, and More
Hello and welcome to this Tuesday edition of Poster Mania. The most notable poster releases of the week definitely belongs to Avengers: Age of Ultron. The superhero pic slowly released character posters of last week and are available alongside new posters for Get Hard, The Gunman, Home, While We’re Young, Hitman: Agent 47, and The Forger.
Make sure to check out yesterday’s trailers if you missed those.
Like I mentioned earlier, Avengers: Age of Ultron dominated the news the past week with a bunch of new posters. Along with the ensemble poster above (which does look a lot like the previous Avengers poster), there are character posters for Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.). Make sure to check them all out below as we get closer to May 1st – the release date for Joss Whedon’s superhero sequel. (Source: Comingsoon)
To go along with last week’s poster, I have another look at Get Hard starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart. The prison comedy is directed by Etan Cohen (his directorial debut) and again utilizes some pretty bad photoshop. Still, the poster is above for you to check out before Get Hard debuts on March 27th.

Following up yesterday’s new trailer is a new poster for The Gunman. The action-thriller stars Sean Penn (who is again front and center in the poster), Idris Elba (Pacific Rim), and Javier Bardem. Pierre Morel (Taken) directed the movie and it’s already set to come out on March 20th. (Source: Movies.com)
The only other gallery of posters come by the way of the animated comedy Home. The DreamWorks Animation film voice stars Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, and Jim Parsons (CBS’s The Big Bang Theory). The premise involves an alien race that is trying to hide on Earth, as evident by the posters showing a hiding purple alien. Tim Johnson’s (Antz) latest is set to debut on March 27th alongside Get Hard. Check out all five new posters below. (Source: Movies.com)
While We’re Young is another holdover from yesterday. To go along with a new trailer, you can see a new quad-style poster for Noah Baumbach’s (The Squid and the Whale) latest. Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, and Adam Driver (HBO’s Girls) headline the comedy-drama that also releases March 27th. The poster is above for you! (Source: Empire)
The latest poster for Hitman: Agent 47 satisfies our backs-to-the-audience hunger. The poster cliche definitely isn’t dead and this time around shows the title character, Agent 47 (played by Rupert Friend). Aleksander Bach’s film also stars Zachary Quinto (Star Trek Into Darkness). You can expect plenty of marketing for this film between now and its August 28th scheduled release. (Source: Collider)
Lastly, above is a new poster for The Forger – a crime thriller starring John Travolta. Travolta is joined by Christopher Plummer, Abigail Spencer (This is Where I Leave You), and more in a film about a man that’s trying to get his son out of prison. Directed by Philip Martin (Mo), this one is set to hit theaters April 24th. (Source: Collider)
