Since Monsters University embraces the tropes of collegiate comedies, it has a cast of misfit monsters not entirely dissimilar to the Tri-Lambs in Revenge of the Nerds.
These odd and adorable fellows get their due in eight new character posters for this year's prequel to Monsters Inc.
While that 2001 film had James P. "Sulley" Sullivan and Mike Wazowski living the life as the top scarers in Monstropolis, the prequel finds them meeting and immediately disliking one another during their freshman year at the titular university. While matriculating, the duo end up leading a group of strange monsters in a Greek competition and, slowly but surely, becoming a powerhouse pair of best friends.
As a general rule, it's a good idea to put Guy Pearce in your movie. Shane Black obviously knows that, because he cast Pearce in this summer's Iron Man 3. Marvel Studios knows it too, because a new character poster from the sequel shows off Pearce in as Dr. Aldrich Killian.
Disney has released yet another commercial for the eponymous institute of higher learning in Monsters University. Not only that, but Pixar has also dropped a poster for The Blue Umbrella, the short film set to precede Monsters University in theaters this summer.
This new viral joint one is an advertisement for the school featuring a message from the Dean of M.U., and the viral TV spot would seem to indicate that Helen Mirren voices the important supporting character.
Taking the promotion of this summer's Fast & Furious 6 a quarter mile at a time, Universal Pictures has jabbed the nitrous button, sending two substantial goodies from the automotive epic speeding online today.
These treats consist of the full theatrical trailer and a poster that puts Paul Walker's Brian O'Conner front and center.
It's rare that we get a lick of Iron Man 3 promotion that doesn't prominently feature Robert Downey Jr.'s impeccable Tony Stark facial hair or at least his shiny gold and red armor. But today, Marvel has dropped an Iron Man 3 character poster that proudly features the red, white, and blue armor sported by Don Cheadle as the Iron Patriot.
According to an appropriately crimson teaser poster for Red 2, the best never rest.
Summit Entertainment, which prior to being purchased by Lionsgate counted the first Red as its biggest single non-Twilight movie, has unveiled a new poster for this summer's sequel. The teaser presents a lineup but opts to show the cast from behind, eschewing the opportunity to brag on an ensemble that includes Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Byung hun-Lee, Neal McDonagh, and David Thewlis.
Just in time for the weekend, we have two treats from Monsters University: the first behind-the-scenes featurette on the animated film, as well as a new poster that has everyone's favorite cyclops bundled up for winter.
Earlier this week, we got a look at a new banner for next month's Olympus Has Fallen featuring a very tense-looking Gerard Butler over an image of the White House aflame and the tagline, "When our flag falls, our nation will rise." Now, both Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman have banners of their own, each actor getting his gravitas on atop the same image.
Not many novelty street-racing movies with plots eerily similar to Point Break spawn five sequels, but the sixth installment in The Fast and the Furious franchise is but a few months from squealing into theaters.
With a Super Bowl TV spot kicking off the promotional effort for this summer's demolition derby today, Universal Pictures has unveiled the first official one-sheet and, in doing so, revealed that this latest sequel is entitled Fast & Furious 6.
Last week we saw the first theatrical trailer and domestic poster for Olympus Has Fallen, the first of two movies this years based on the basic premise "Die Hard in the White House." You may have wondered at the time just how a movie built upon combining iconic American federal structures and outrageous action will be sold to international audiences.
A French Olympus Has Fallen poster is making the rounds and it provides an answer to that question: Pretty much the same way its sold to Americans, but with more Gerard Butler.
