POINTLESS CHARACTER BANNERS

Turbo character banner Red 2 character banner

Character banners can be exciting, fun, dynamic and a great way to introduce your audience to the supporting actors and actresses in your film. They can also be a massive waste of time. Here are just a few of the least exciting character banners to hit the web over the past 12 months, with this burgeoning trend no better highlighted than by the Viper’s one-sheet for The Wolverine, which is just a bit of a mess and detracts from the beauty of the original.

Star Trek Into Darkness poster Walking With Dinosaurs 3D poster The Wolverine poster

Seventh Son poster Olympus Has Fallen poster Shadow Hunter poster

Jack The Giant Slayer poster Gangster Squad poster Free Birds poster

Beautiful Creatures poster Snowpiercer poster Blood Ties poster

The Scary Movie 5 poster was funny, buy the way. More

2 Font choice
The big trend I've noticed (not just this year) is the over-reliance on the Bank Gothic font to make movie titles look 'slick' and 'edgy'. More

3 Fully Intended?
I recall the middle poster for Heat from hoardings. I thought it was meant to be terrible. Isn't that part of the joke? Really terrible by design. More

Anton Yelchin's poster looks funny, as does the Gangster Squad one-is that a gay American Simon Pegg? And Gerard Butler looks like he's crossed himself with Cumberbatch and Jimmy Carr : ) More

5 Half finished Billboard
The Paranoia poster looks like a film I'd go see but unfortunately missed because now the latest supernatural teen romance flick is taking its place. More

That's Jake Abel not Boyd Holbrook in The Host poster. Just saying :) More

I like the 80's style one for The Heat. Isn't it a Mondo design? More

The Wolverine one is not official. Turned out to be a fan made poster. More

More to the point is Jennifer Lopez looks absolutely nothing like herself but more like Megan Fox. More
