Robocop gives some history to the supporting cast, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues continues to showcase the leads as bigger than life, Jack Ryan: Shadow Operative brings a poster and pics, and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug brings 7 new posters to you and me!
Robocop has released a handful of new images today that give a bit of the backstory and role of key characters in the film. I’m really looking forward to Jackie Earle Haley as Maddox, the “Military Tactician.” Not only is he a fantastic actor, and was super awesome as Rorschach, but he looks cool in the film. I hope they don’t make him a comedic or stupid villain, though. I want him to be badass.
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues has a handful of new posters today, and none of them are particularly cool, but they do look decent enough, and showcase the characters well enough. I think the one really nice thing about this sequel is that the marketing is mostly based around the return of the characters, and doesn’t spoil too many jokes. Kudos on that front.
Jack Ryan: Shadow Operative
Jack Ryan: Shadow Operative has a new poster and a few new photos today. I think we can all agree the pic of Keira Knightley is the only one that matters. Excuse me while I drool for a moment.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has a eight new posters today. That’s a lot of posters. Too many, really. My walls are only so big!
Anyways, there are quite a few fairly standard character posters, and I like them well enough though they’re nothing special. It’s nice to see Orlando Bloom’s Legolas some more, but otherwise I’m unimpressed. The group shot is quite cool though, especially as it makes Gandalf the center of attention. Which he is.
