This Week In Movie Posters: Teenage Mutant Ninja Nice Guys

This week in this week in posters, we begin with Amateur Night, starring Jason Biggs and his wife, Jenny Mollen. “Amateur Night,” huh? Must about the guy who designed this poster, am I right! Hey drive safe out there no it’s okay I was already leaving.

I want to say I’ve seen other posters with the subject being stepped on, but I can’t think of them off of the top of my head, so I’ll simply say that Jason Biggs has a very good “here we go again!” face. He’s almost a cartoon character.

Jason Biggs is Guy Carter, an insecure expectant father who, unable to find work in his field, accepts a job driving hookers around Los Angeles. [IMDb]

Hookers! Well that’s unconventional. I bet every time a hooker gets in with another whacky job, Jason Biggs is like “Well, here we go again!”

Amsel. So hot right now, Amsel.

This guy looks like one of those awesome old glamour photos from the ’70s and ’80s you see on Tumblr. I am not familiar with this person, but now I want to be, so well done there. They also squeezed in one of those diagonal lines poster designers love, but without tilting the whole thing obnoxiously sideways.

Maybe don’t put the URL in it though? That seems a little desperate, and low class, like my ideal mate. If people can’t find it by Googling “amsel movie” it’s the SEO guy’s fault, not the poster’s.

Sheesh, that’s the longest pull-quote I’ve ever seen. They could’ve just gone with “that horse had moxie” if you ask me, but this works fine too. Everyone loves a small Welsh underdog. Hey, you know who else is a small Welsh underdog? Corgis.

Whooaoooaa, they got faces on their necks! NECKFACE, WHERE FACES BECOME NECKS!

I’m not entirely sure what’s happening here. Are they supposed to be tearing in half and sprouting multiple faces from the buds? I think that’s what’s happening, and I can’t stop staring at it. Wonderful. That’ll do, neckface.

“We wrote this script for Wes Anderson but he turned it down.”

I saw The Hunt For the Wilderpeople and it was awesome. This poster is… okay, I guess. I mean, the movie has Sam Neill. How do you not put Sam Neill in the poster! Sam Neill is the Tom Hanks of New Zealand.
