It really seems like when it comes to movie posters these days, a lot of studio marketing departments play it safe. Photoshopped images of characters staring off in different directions seem to dominate.
So teaser posters, especially those that focus on individual characters, can be a lot of fun.
Here are a couple of cool ones for “X-Men Days of Future Past.”
One features Patrick Stewart and a hairy James McAvoy as the two faces of Charles (Professor X) Xavier in the time-spanning movie, while the other features Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender as Eric Lehnsherr, the movies’ Magneto.
The effect is cool and kinda freaky.
The posters were released right around the time of Comic Con.
The movie opens in May 2014.
