POSTERS

Preview: Chernobyl Diaries (2012)

Synopsis:

A group of tourists find the ultimate thrill ride, touring the wasteland surrounding Chernobyl. Their thrill ride gets more intense when the unexpected denizens of the area start hunting them.

  • Poster: B-

Review:

I'm not going to quibble about a poster that tries to be different. Sure, it's not terribly forward-thinking and has a few precedents to give one pause, but it's a fairly refreshing and easily identifiable design.

  • Trailer: C

Review:

The makers may thinking setting the film in a cinematically unexplored location, but the trailer shows the film to be something fairly straightforward and unexceptional for the genre.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
