Frame this terrible new ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ poster and hang it up on my wall immediately
I don’t know what the hell is going on over at the Sony Pictures marketing department, but some graphic designer who is probably severely underpaid keeps making these god-awful movie posters and for whatever reason the studio is always just like, “Yeah, that looks good enough. Send it out.”
I mean, just take a gander at this new one-sheet they put out for Spider-Man: Far From Home earlier today:
Now, I love the Spider-Man franchise as much as the next guy and I love Tom Holland as Spider-Man and I hate to clown on things I love, but holy shit that poster is hilariously bad and I want it framed and put on the wall in front of my desk immediately so I can look up and laugh at it whenever I want.
All jokes aside, though, a poster is not indicative of a movie’s quality and I’m sure Far From Home is going to be just fine. Remember that very unfortunate international poster Sony released for Spider-Man: Homecoming back in 2017? Yeah, sorry I had to bring that up.
But, the point is, that poster looked like complete and utter shit and yet the movie turned out to be great and was critically acclaimed and went on to make a ton of money at the box office, and I’m sure that will also be the case for Far From Home when it hit theaters on July 2.
A bunch of new details about Christopher Nolan’s new movie ‘Tenet’ have just emerged
All aboard the hype train: Warner Bros. announced today that production is officially underway on Christopher Nolan’s new movie Tenet, which really isn’t a particularly exciting title, but, hey, we’ll take it. I’m just looking forward to seeing what Nolan has in store for us following the masterpiece that was Dunkirk in 2017.
According to a press release, Tenet is “an action epic evolving around the world of international espionage” that is being shot on location across seven different countries. A Christopher Nolan spy movie? That’s all I needed to know. I’m in, baby.
In addition to John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, and Elizabeth Debicki, the cast also now includes the likes of Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Kenneth Branagh, and, of course, with this being a Nolan movie and all, Michael Caine.
Behind the scenes, Nolan is reteaming with DP Hoyte van Hoytema, production designer Nathan Crowley, costume designer Jeffrey Kurland, and VFX supervisor Andrew Jackson, while working with editor Jennifer Lame and Oscar-winning composer Ludwig Göransson for the first time.
Nolan has obviously assembled some of Hollywood’s best both in front of and behind the camera for his latest project and, as you could probably imagine, I’m hype as fuck and can’t wait to see how this thing turns out when it hits theaters next year on July 17.
