Posters for Iron Man 2, Shutter Island, The Last Airbender and Up in the Air

Posted by LiveFor on June 24, 2009

Here are some promo posters for Jason Reitman’s Up in the Air, M Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender, Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island and Jon Favreau’s Iron Man 2. were the ones who got the photos off them from the Cinema Expo International 2009 being held in Amsterdam.

These are not the finished official posters but rather a way to advertise the films at the show.

I think the Last Airbender one is my favourite.

Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island – Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on June 11, 2009

The story of two U.S. marshals, Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo), who are summoned to a remote and barren island off the cost of Massachusetts to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a murderess from the island’s fortress-like hospital for the criminally insane.

But nothing at Ashecliffe Hospital is what it seems. And neither is Teddy Daniels. Is he there to find a missing patient? Or has he been sent to look into rumors of Ashecliffe’s radical approach to psychiatry? The closer Teddy and Chuck get to the truth, the more elusive it becomes, and the more they begin to believe that they may never leave Shutter Island. Because someone is trying to drive them insane. . .

Directed by Scorsese this is looking very good and a bit Hitchcockian methinks.

As well as the two main leads it also stars Ben Kingsley, Emily Mortimer, Michelle Williams, Max von Sydow, and Jackie Earle Haley. Let me know what you think of the trailer.

Could this be in the running for an Oscar?

Shutter Island – Teaser poster for Martin Scorsese’s next film

Posted by LiveFor on March 28, 2009

RopeofSilicon user “Friends of Eddie” last sent in scans from Cahiers du Cinéma’s January 2009 edition with a diary written by Argentinean filmmaker Celine Murga based on her experiences on the set of Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island and today he returns with a piece of teaser art from the film scanned out of the Berliner Zeitung newspaper as part of a story about TMG/Concorde, the film’s distributor.

Since it is a scan you can slightly see some of the words bleeding through on the lighter areas but for the most part it is a top quality image, but I can’t help get the feeling it is still an early piece of artwork since the font used to write “Whatever happened to patient 67?” on the wall is just a generic font and isn’t exactly up to final art quality.

Shutter Island is currently due out on October 2 and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, Max von Sydow, Patricia Clarkson, Emily Mortimer and Jackie Earle Haley. The official site is also live, but merely with placeholder information.

Scorsese and De Niro working together again.

Posted by LiveFor on October 2, 2008

Paramount Pictures have got screenwriter Steve Zaillian (Schindler’s List, Hannibal, Gangs of New York, American Gangster) to adapt Charles Brandt’s book “I Heard You Paint Houses” for the great Martin Scorsese to direct.

It gets better. Robert De Niro has already signed on to play Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, a reputed criminal who has carried out more than 25 mob murders. The story follows the mob assassin who many believe was involved in the death of Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa.

I Heard You Paint Houses refers to the mob slang for contract killings, and the resulting blood splatter on walls and floors.

Now Scorsese has been making good films lately and De Niro has not. Hopefully, having the two of them together making another gangster movie should mean we get some cinematic gold.

What do you think? Excited?
