So this is the long-awaited Carlos the Jackal movie, right?

When your poster designs don't actually look like the leads of your film, start again.

Is that meant to be Tommy Lee Jones?

Really horrible.

Yuck, those are PlayStation One-level likenesses.

If it wasn't for Jemaine Clement, I wouldn't even entertain going to see this. Bet he vanishes without explanation at some point, Johnny Knoxville style.

Time for another weak sequel that ignores anything set up in an earlier film?

Will Smith's been quiet for years now and only comes back in a sequel that noone wants to see?! This looks awful. He seriously needs to buck up and get serious when picking his projects. Oh, and he should also stop trying to ram his kids down our throats...we're interested in HIM as an actor, not his kids...rant over. and out.

Glance at the posters from a distance, they do look like the actors, particularly the Tommy Lee Jones one (which probably, in terms of the very basics of his facial expression is going to chime with Brolin's take on the younger version of the character).

Closer to the poster, the faces disappear and you see MIB3 over and over again.

Not a great deal wrong with the concept or execution. Get the impression that since the MIB don't officially exist, and operate in the periphery of society in the world of the film, not being able to get a totally clear close up look at them TOTALLY fits in with the world of the film, Doubt the film will focus on that sort of thing to much, but would be cool if they manage to make the characters seem mysterious to bystanders, did they see what they think they saw? All in character with the films.

The film itself is a bigger issue than this artwork.

MIB2 was shite, and I;ve always said they shouldn't have bothered using screen time to bring TLJ into it. WS could have turned up for work, TLJ could have already been there, WS then would have have been like 'WTF' and TLJ could have said 'No time to explain, Slick, we got work to do'. With no explanation ever given. Kooky, within the parameters set by the first film, no screen time wasted with getting TLJ back into the fold, and then more time to develop the plot of the film. The dog as sidekick in MIB garb was utter shite, presumably the result of some idiot thinking 'people liked the bit with the dog in the first film, let's bring back the dog' not realising it;s the reveal of the dog that formed the gag that was the thing that worked. Surprises people don't see coming should have been the way to go, rather than stuff like shoehorning in the dog for any more than a passing gag. In that regard, the very last moment of the film, while a spin on the closing gag of the first film, was much more like it. .

Re MIB3, hopefully the criticism of how rushed it all seemed has been taken on board. That's more important than these initial teaser posters which, even if they result in most people saying they don't like them cos they make their eyes go funny, will stand out from other artwork. So job is done, the merest impression of the characters faces created by the pics (showing at least some confidence in the iconography of the characters) and the name of he film, over and over again.

If they really wanted to make an impact on the streets, they should have just shown Will Smith & Tommy Lee Jones standing with their arms around the three-titted alien from Paul with spliffs hanging out of their mouths. That I would go and see...

Though you're joshing, you're probably right...engage 'patronising twat' mode...

The period the time travel element of the film is going back to is the 60's, the time of:

The fracturing of the idealised image of the authorities, the police and 'suits'
Pop Art/stylised imagery
Psychadelic/trippy art


The images certainly could be said to combine all of the above, and if the people behind the images didn't consider these things, they're a very lucky coincidence.

Also, we don't know the plot/atmosphere/tone of the film. Pure speculation, but if there is a 'now you see me, now you don't' bad guy, or if the MIB are presented in that way, the imagery would suit that. Presumably, those behind the imagery have been given some kind of brief to work to, or possibly had the time travel effects described to them and are seeking to evoke something about the film with the images.

Without knowing more about the film, it's impossible to be sure whether the imagery is appropriate, but one thing is for sure, if it was created by people just pulling imagery out of their arses, they've been paid too much for too little.

Fair enough, people are reacting to the imagery in a 'that's just shite' way, we all have our initial reaction to stuff, but I obviously have no issue with the artwork, and have had something sparked off by it, to have babbled on as I have. Maybe I'm being over generous, or ascribing too much credit to the thought processes of other 'creative' people, but I'd certainly have the kind of stuff I've mentioned in mind, were I part of any such set up.

Terrible design and in no way makes you want to see the film. They don't even look like who they're supposed to.
