Welcome to the Movie Media column - trailers, posters, and clips for upcoming films, along with some CD art and a TV spoof poster. Some are nice and fresh, some aren't. However, they all have something in common - they caught my attention. If there is a
poster or trailer you think I should check out, be sure to let me know, and I will see what I can do.
This week kicks off with something a little different, the cover art for the upcoming Avenged Sevenfold album was released, as was a poster promo for the season premiere of Family Guy. Also this week we have media for a British royalty sequel, a new comic adaptation, a law thriller, a new Japanese remake, and a comedic jab at organized religion. All that and more!
Avenged Sevenfold - Album Art, Webisodes
Avenged Sevenfold is hard at work on their fourth album, and their fist since their explosive major label debut, City of Evil. I am anxiously awaiting the release of this self-titled album, as I fell in love with their last release. The cover art has come out and it is very simple. It features a white background and their skull with bat wings logo, with the parental advisory logo in the lower left. They are also posting studio clip webisodes chronicling the album. So, for a glimpse of the new album, see below.
Family Guy: Blue Harvest - Poster
Family Guy will be kicking off its new season with an hour-long spoof of Star Wars. To go along with the movie theme, there has been a poster created to promote it. I have to say that it is pretty cool looking. It perfectly apes the look of the original Star Wars poster. It even uses the working title that was used: Blue Harvest. Take a look:
The Spirit - Poster
It won't be coming to theaters until 2009, but there is already a poster out for The Spirit. It is a comic adaptation that will be the directorial debut for screenwriter Frank Miller (creator of 300 and Sin City). I know that he was credited as director on Sin City with Robert Rodriguez, but that was more Rodriguez's doing than anything else. They already have some of the cast in place, including Gabriel Macht (Because I Said So) in the title role, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Eva Mendes.
