Posterized Propaganda February 2012: The Dreadful and the Dread-Inducing

30 January 2012 6:00 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover” is a proverb whose simple existence proves the fact impressionable souls will do so without fail. This monthly column focuses on the film industry’s willingness to capitalize on this truth, releasing one-sheets to serve as not representations of what audiences are to expect, but as propaganda to fill seats. Oftentimes they fail miserably.

And we’re back after ignoring a month where the most interesting poster was Liam Neeson‘s face washed out in white. I’m not saying February is any better—because it’s not—but at least we’re distancing ourselves from the start of the year dump of films with marketing campaigns projecting their lower quality. There will be some moneymakers this month, but I doubt many will call them great movies.

Living in a secondary market like mine in Buffalo, NY makes me want to believe »
