If you're going to introduce an unknown as the star of your new action thriller, you're going to want to put her front and centre on the first teaser poster, right? Wrong. Forgoing even an ensemble poster headshot runway to remind audiences that Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Bill Paxton, Channing Tatum, Antonio Banderas and Michael Douglas although that came later it's just a woman, back to the camera, straddling what looks like a corpse.

1 RE:
L: TheBigLewbowski Splitting heirs in the standard film nerd kind of way, that's not a "Palace", it's the Houses of Parliament. Stop getting Bond wrong. hat is The Palace of Westminster, it is the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, the two houses that form the Parliament of the United Kingdom. So Empire is correct. More

4 Gotham Falls
Where was the amazing first teaser for The Dark Knight Rises where the crumbling skyline of Gotham formed the Bat logo? That was one of if not the awesomest poster of 2012 even better than the awesome Bane & Broken cowl teaser. Shame the TDR theatrical posters weren't as good and mostly fell under the badly photoshopped catergory. Shame they used one of them or the Blu-ray cover instead of one of the teasers like on The Dark Knight where they used the Joker teaser. As for Skyfall same problem as TDKR the awesome teaser poster of Bond walking through the gun barrel logo was let down by the awkward, badly photoshopped and frankly boring teaser posters. The IMAX one was great though. More
