Movie Poster Clichés compared


Schönes Ding von Oh No they didn’t: thirteen movie poster trends that are here to stay and what they say about their movies. Bild oben: Sexy Black: „The movies that use this sort of poster will feature a lot of action with a thin veneer of pretentious intellectual posturing. Unless it’s a biopic about Johnny Cash.“ (via MeFi)

    Erinnert mich an meinen gestrigen Besuch eines örtlichen Elektrogroßhandels. Die 18er Abteilung zeigt eigentlich nur ein Coverentwurf. Großer roter Font, entsättigtes Körperteil mit roten Blutspritzern und der obligatorische FSK 18 Sticker.

    Ach so! Und ich habe mich schon gewundert, warum jedesmal ein anderer Film in der Coverhülle war, wenn ich ihn in der Videothek geliehen habe.

    Hab ich oft schon gedacht, wenn ich Filmposter angeschaut habe. Zu den Black-Orange ist erst die Tage “Blitz” mit Statham dazugekommen, dessen Cover irgendwie verdächtig wie das von Transporter und Transporter 3 ausschaut. Naja, wenn sie schon in den letzten Jahren nur Filme recyclen, warum dann nicht auch die Poster.

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
