The Pass
Artwork Wednesday

Artwork Wednesday: Dreamland, The Ivory Game, Hello Destroyer + more!

And we’re back! It was the first Trailer Tuesday in around two months yesterday, and I have certainly missed it. Shame I can’t say the same about Artwork Wednesday… nahhh I’m only joking, Artwork Wednesday is one of my favourite posts to make! Speaking of favourites, here’s a few of my favourite posters from the months I’ve missed.

The style of this poster really suits Dreamland. I love the colours and it stands out amongst the crowd. It’s just beautiful!

The imagery and the simplicity of this poster for The Pass is delicate, and very intriguing. Plus, I love the detail of the border… just such a calm yet intense piece of art.


3. The Ivory Game

The Ivory Game is an important documentary about incredibly empathetic animals, whose morals are not mirrored by some terrible humans. It needs a striking poster, and this altered and impactful imagery works well.

The palette of this Free Fire poster is gorgeous. Combined with the playfulness of the font and design, it makes for a rather enticing advertisement.

I’M NOT LOOKING AT FANTASTIC BEASTS STUFF BUT I SAW THIS BOLD AND EXCITING BEAUTY IN A BUS STOP SHELTER AND AND AND


6. Hello Destroyer

Negative space done well is, as you may be well aware, a firm favourite of mine. Along with the title and the pose of the man, I’d like to know what’s going on here…


I hope you enjoyed this return to Artwork Wednesday! 🙂

Artwork Wednesday: Collateral Beauty, Free Fire + Trolls

This week’s Artwork Wednesday includes one of my favourite posters of this year, a poster for Free Fire, as well as the first poster which I found had too much negative space! What! I know! What is happening?!


1. Collateral Beauty

I’m attracted to the simplicity, as always, but I’m not 100% sure about the negative space (that’s a first for me!). Nevertheless, I’ve included this one because the colour and light is so soft, it really suits the message of the film (make sure you check out the trailer in this week’s Trailer Tuesday if you haven’t seen it!).


2. Free Fire

I just, suddenly love this poster. I was looking at it for just a few seconds, and then it almost physically hit me, that I love it. I felt the love. How cheesy does that sound? BUT IT’S TRUE! I love the arms, the font, and the plain white background. But the arms, man, they are just genius.


3. Trolls

The structure pleases me greatly. I love, love the colours, I think they have been really perfected, and I love the composition of each troll image.


Do you love the Free Fire poster as much as I do? Or do the Trolls or Collateral Beauty posters take your fancy?

Trailer Tuesday

Trailer Tuesday vol. 45: Free Fire, The White Helmets, Supersonic + more!

I love this week of Trailer Tuesday simply because it includes the man himself, Will Smith. Isn’t that reason enough to keep reading? It’s not? Oh. Well I think it is… but if you really need more than Will Smith, you can also have a Netflix documentary in Syria, a hilarious shoot-out, the secrets of Oasis and John Lennon, and a thief who steals a river… or something like that.


1. Collateral Beauty
When it is released? 30th Dec 2016 (UK), 16th Dec 2016 (USA)
What is it about? A tragic event sends a New York ad man on a downward spiral.
Immediate thoughts? I have my suspicions about how this will end… but I won’t tell you just in case it’s true ;P It could be reaaaal cheesy, but I love Will Smith and it made me emosh so I’m including it!

2. The White Helmets
When it is released? 16th Sep 2016 (Netflix)
What is it about? As daily airstrikes pound civilian targets in Syria, a group of indomitable first responders risk their lives to rescue victims from the rubble.
Immediate thoughts? Hundreds of bombs, every day?

3. Free Fire
When it is released? 31st Mar 2017 (UK), 2017 (USA)
What is it about? Set in Boston in 1978, a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two gangs turns into a shootout and a game of survival.
Immediate thoughts? An injection of comedy in an otherwise serious and violent scene gives Free Fire a lot of promise!

4. Supersonic
When it is released? 14th Oct 2016 (UK)
What is it about? An in-depth look at the life and music of Manchester-based rock band, Oasis.
Immediate thoughts? Not knowing much about Oasis, this would definitely be interesting to watch… All I know is that they are one of the biggest British bands, I had no idea they rose to fame in just 3 years!

5. The Lennon Report
When it is released? 7th Oct 2016 (USA)
What is it about? The unheard true story of the moments after John Lennon was shot as seen through the eyes of those who lived it. Alan Weiss, an ambitious young news producer, finds himself in a position to break the biggest story of the year following a violent motorcycle accident. The emergency department at Roosevelt Hospital discovers a John Doe shooting victim is the worlds biggest rock star and struggles to keep the news quiet while working to save his life.
Immediate thoughts? The truth is always so interesting, isn’t it?

6. The River Thief
When it is released? 14th Oct 2016 (USA, internet)
What is it about? Diz (Joel Courtney) is a reckless teenage drifter living life on the run. Abandoned by his parents as a child, he looks out for himself and doesn’t accept handouts. He takes whatever he wants and runs. Jaded and determined to answer to no one, Diz lives a life marked by thievery and abandonment. Things change for Diz when he floats into a small town on the Snake River. There he is confronted by an unflappable old man named Marty and falls for Marty’s guarded granddaughter, Selah. When Diz robs a local drug-dealing crazy, he becomes the owner of a giant pile of cash and the target of two vicious killers. With more money than he knows what to do with, and criminals at his heels, Diz puts the people he’s learned to care about in danger, still trying to win Selah. But some things can’t be stolen or bought. The River Thief is a film about guilt, self-sacrifice, and accepting life as a gift.
Immediate thoughts? While I’m not sure about it, I’m sort of intrigued by The River Thief… But I can’t put my finger on why.

Thank you for reading 🙂 Let me know if you have a favourite trailer this week!
