New Push Poster Online
Wouldn’t you love to be able to do this?

22 December 2008  |  Written by James Dyer

If you’ve been even half awake since last Summer’s Comic-Con then you’ll know that we simply can’t be any more excited about Paul McGuigan’s new film, Push. Think X-Men with psychics and you’re halfway to understanding the film, which sees a government initiative to militarise mental abilities cause superpowered people to walk among us.

A new poster for the film is now online and shows a character hurling enemies, a car and an assault rifle (which CoD4 players might recognise as a G36C) out of his path. Despite the film’s title and tagline, the character in the poster is not, in fact, 'Pushing'. Pushers put thoughts in your mind and bend you to their will, Movers, on the other hand, are the ones who can throw stuff around with their minds. Just saying.

Pushers wouldn't work on the poster.
All these things are fair enough; The film's called push, the pushers are the ones who push thoughts and all that jazz, but its movers who move objects - The problem is, how the hell would you show a pusher on a poster? How do you illustrate a thought being 'pushed'? Badly, if at all. Answer? Show a mover. It doesn't link to the title as well, but I guess they picked the lesser evil (assuming misleading misnomers are now classed as evil). More

RE: New Push Poster Online
The poster is pretty lame. Still looking forward to the film though. More

seems to follow the same formula as jumper in my opinion, kids with talent that shady organisation want to stop/harness. More

Could well be Matrix Revolutions!
Looking forward to the movie though - nice spot with G36C. COD4 lives on! More

Pushing
I was going to say... maybe the guy in the poster is actually using some sort of force field to shield himself from all those flying objects? More

That poster puts the film firmly in b-movie territory. McGuigan should hire the bloke who designed the poster for Gangster No.1, which was brilliant. Oh, and nice coincidence that it happens to be a Ferrari Enzo that's being "moved" - imagine it with an Austin Allegro instead... More

Yeah, the combination of Image and tag-line does suggest that to 'push' is to hurl crap about. Confusing. Also, whats the bet that Fanning is not one of these 'movers'? Everyone knows that it's cinematic gold to see little girlies slamming the shit out of big burly soldier-types. That part in Resident Evil where the little computer girl (Red Queen was it?) makes cat-food out of that guy is my favourite part of the whole damn francise (I'm sure that's not how you spell that, but nevermind) More
