Skyline Movie Poster + Black Swan, Music from the Big House


I’ve been waiting for a Skyline movie poster to appear, and today we’ve got one! If you haven’t already drooled over the trailer, either you haven’t seen it – or alien invasion movies aren’t your thing.

To be honest, I think I’m a little bit more excited about Monsters (as far as upcoming films in this genre are concerned), but Skyline still has my interest piqued. Check the synopsis for a quick refresher and then hit the jump for the full movie poster plus the posters for Black Swan, with Natalie Portman and the poster for Music from the Big House.

After a late night party, a group of friends are awoken in the dead of the night by an eerie light beaming through the window. Like moths to a flame, the light source is drawing people outside before they suddenly vanish into the air. They soon discover an otherworldly force is swallowing the entire human population off the face of the earth. Now our band of survivors must fight for their lives as the world unravels around them.

I showed you the Black Swan trailer yesterday, but we didn’t have the full movie poster yet to post. Now it’s available and it’s about what you would expect: Portman in her very artistic ballet makeup.

While I am looking forward to seeing this film, I’m afraid I can already see right through the story – something along the lines of Portman = Mila Kunis – but maybe I’m wrong! Either way, any opportunity I have to see Natalie Portman kissing Mila Kunis is an opportunity not to miss.

Lastly we have the movie poster for a documentary called Music from the Big House. I wanted to share this poster simply because I think the design is very clever – something that’s a bit of a rarity in today’s movie posters.

If you’re not seeing the lines of prisoners as stanzas and notes, you’re not looking carefully enough. The likelihood of the documentary ever being widely seen is nil. However, that doesn’t detract from the clever, well-designed poster!

From acclaimed director Bruce McDonald, teaming with an Emmy and Oscar nominated documentary producer, comes a rare and exclusive musical journey. Rita Chiarelli, an award-winning recording artist, has decided to take a pilgrimage to the birthplace of the blues—Louisiana State Maximum Security Penitentiary a.k.a Angola Prison. She never imagined that her love of the blues would lead her to play with inmates serving life sentences for murder, rape and armed robbery.
In what was once the bloodiest prison in America, inmates relatives will be invited to listen alongside other prisoners, to hear remarkable voices singing stories of hope and redemption. Let yourself be swept away by one of Blues’ most soulful pilgrim daughters who is finding out if music really is an escape.

ShockTillYouDrop was the first with the Skyline poster.
