Sheet-y Saturday.

Where we take a look at movie posters for upcoming features.

The idea of Scream 4 truly makes me squeal like a schoolgirl.
And I love the way in which this poster follows the originals but gives them an edge, quite literally as the mask takes the shape of a knife.
It's this combination of campy horror, comedy and critique that make Wes Craven's Scream movies such a delight to watch.

This poster reminds me of something but I can't really put my finger on it the famous V-Day kiss picture? Perhaps a scene from A Man and a Woman?
Whatever the answer turns out to be, the undeniable truth is that this one sheet is a truly breathtaking piece. Not only are the stars' faces almost concealed (you have Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess and purposefully choose not to show them? That's cojones right there) but the image composition thrives with sexual, romantic and sigh-inducing energy.
Why the hell aren't rom-com posters more adventurous this way?

So, is it romance or thriller for you this week?

Agree with the One Day poster, it gives off a classy, almost retro vibe.
