Poster Rating: C / C / C / C- / D+ / B- (2) / C- (2)

Review: (#1) A visually dull, but bright design that highlights the film’s stars without feeling like it’s a movie that people would want to see. (#2) A slight bit more appealing than the first design, with the imagery being a bit smaller and bolder, but it’s impossible to forgive the hackneyed, sloppy split-panel design.

(#3) Looking like a cheap evocation of style, the bright yellow dominates the design leaving the cheesy drawn elements to play heavily on its surface disappointingly. (#4) Somewhat unique color selections don’t makeup for the painfully dull image selections. (#5) Using still images from films can be done with great creativity. This is the polar opposite of such things. (#6-#7) This matched-pair of character posters feature tons of fascinating detail that establish setting and connectivity. (#8-#9) Any creativity evinced in the prior pair of character posters is jettisoned in this set, which employs ugly artwork and incompetent placement.

Trailer Rating: B

Review: Were it not for stars Donald Sutherland and Helen Mirren, this film would look like a dreadful attempt to cash in on the Alzheimer’s crisis for cheap tears. Mirren and Sutherland bring enough gravitas to the trailer to keep it from sinking entirely into schmaltz.
