POSTER CHILD




The poster for "V/H/S" was one of the best of last year. This promotional material for "V/H/S/2" kind of resembles one of the "Argo" posters with shredded paper. It's not clear what the image creating the skull is, but from a distance this is pretty menacing stuff. Also, the pedigree listed at the top is enough for any cultist to take their hat off in respect.



Speaking of best posters of the year we now have an official candidate in "Only God Forgives" (which also has one of the best trailers I've seen this year - major props to the film's marketing team). A neon dragon between the title, welcome to Thailand! And what's that in its mouth? "Time to meet the devil." Oh, boy! Perhaps the best part is that we now have a release date: July 19th!
