Yes, lots of new posters to dazzle your eyeballs, so let’s jump right in. There are few things surer in life than death and taxes, but at least this week, you can add “On The Road” appearing at the Cannes Film Festival. With the festival set to unveil their slate on Thursday, the new film from Walter Salles is one of surer bets out there. The latest — and sunniest — one sheet from the film has arrived, this time focusing on the lovely Kirsten Dunst who plays Carolyn Cassady in the film. She was married to Neal Cassady and was a friend of the Beats including Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg. And sorry KStew fans, we’re still waiting on a poster for her….
Meanwhile, with an international trailer bowing over the weekend, marketing for “The Amazing Spider-Man” is kicking up a few notches with two brand new posters now arriving. Not much to really say here, they’re effective in a bland, multiplex way. We kinda feel we’ve seen variations on these with the Sam Raimi trilogy, so they’re not particularly compelling being rehashed here once again. The film opens July 3rd.
But speaking of bland, look no further than the dull as hell teaser poster for “The Host.” Making no secret that it’s based on the novel by “Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer, this one features a closeup on Saorise Ronan who plays the dual characters in the movie whose plot we still don’t quite understand. It seems a solar eclipse is happening in her eyeball. Sometimes we feel like that after drinking too much. We’ll see what this is all about on March 29, 2013. [Facebook/Stark Industries/Yahoo/MTV]
