Can you feel it? With only six weeks to go, momentum is starting to build toward the November 19 release of what is perhaps the year's most eagerly anticipated movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1."
A couple weeks back we were treated to a a chills-inducing new trailer. Then last week, Harry, Ron and Hermione character posters hit the Interwebs. Today, we've got the latest "Potter" treat: a brand-spanking-new poster depicting Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron sprinting through a fairly ominous-looking forest. To our mind, it perfectly captures the essence of "Hallows," which forces the heroic trio out of the once-safe haven of Hogwarts and into the wild unknown on a quest to find the Horcruxes and destroy Voldemort's vile soul.
Click on the image below to check out the full poster -- and a slew of other magical images -- in our "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" photo gallery.

Art is supposed to imitate life, but these days it seems that it's often the other way around.
Such is the case with "The Taqwacores," a novel that was handed out free in parking lots in the early aughties before being published in 2004. The book centers on the complexities of being Muslim in post-9/11 America by telling of Islamic youths who become involved in the burgeoning Muslim punk-rock scene known as Taqwacore.
Funny thing is, there was no such thing at the time, but in the wake of the book's 2004 publishing a Muslim punk scene has not only sprung up but begun to thrive. In fact, Muslim punk is becoming so popular that a film version of the novel, also entitled "The Taqwacores," is headed for theaters in New York on October 22 and LA on November 12, with more cities to follow. Check out the exclusive poster debut below.

In case you're one of the 11 people who hasn't read "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" or seen the latest freaking awesome trailer for "Deathly Hallows - Part 1," three new character posters have arrived to drive home just how dark, action-packed and thrilling the saga's two-part finale is going to be.
Each of the series' three main heroes -- Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) -- get their own banners, and all look equally scared out of their Hogwarts-loving minds. Though the backdrop of each poster reveals that the characters are at different, far-reaching spots across the globe, all three pals have their wands drawn, look bruised and battered, and bear the same expression of intense suspicion on their countenances. The images mesh perfectly with the accompanying tagline: "Nowhere is safe." We're sold... and we can't wait for "Part 1" to bow on November 19.
Check out the Harry poster below, then head over to our "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" photo gallery to see Ron and Hermione's equally badass banners, as well as a slew of other images from the film.
What do you think of the new "Harry Potter" posters? Do they heighten your already high anticipation for the film?
That headline pretty much says it all. You've already enjoyed an exclusive new clip from "Jackass 3D" this evening. Now I've got a cherry on top for you, in the form of a shiny, new poster.
After the jump you can see a dude who I'm guessing is Johnny Knoxville setting off into the wild, blue yonder from the back of a star-spangled jetski (it's red, white and blue anyway). I'm not sure what landed him in this predicament, but I AM sure of two things:
(1) Something unconventional launched that thing into the air.
(2) This will not end well for either the jetski or its rider.
You'll have to wait until October 15, when "Jackass 3D" hits theaters, to see the before and after. For now, enjoy the moment in poster form. Read More...
Even if you don't immediately recognize the name Drew Struzan, I guarantee you know his work. His art graces more than 150 movie posters, including some of the most celebrated and iconic works of the past 30 years: all of the "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones" movies, the first few "Police Academy" flicks, "First Blood," "Coming To America," "The Goonies," "Blade Runner"... impressed yet? The guy has a serious resume.
There are two reasons I'm posting about Struzan today. The first is his new book, "The Art of Drew Struzan," which is available from Titan Books next week, on September 14. I've been thumbing through it relentlessly since it arrived last week, and I really can't put it down. The pages are full of amazing poster art, finished and unfinished, used and unused. A significant portion is devoted to a range of "Back to the Future" poster mockups, some of which sell a very different movie than what hit theaters in 1985. Wild stuff.
I'll be chatting with Drew a little later today, and will hopefully have a story up from the interview soon after. To psych you up though, I have a very special treat: an unused poster design from "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets." Struzan did the first "Potter" movie poster, but a regime change at Warner Bros. led to a change in direction for the subsequent posters, halting these "Chamber of Secrets" sketches at the design stage. There are more in the book, but I've got an exclusive one to share with you here today. Read More...
I hate "TRON: Legacy." Not the movie itself, mind you-- it looks freaking AWESOME. No, I hate the amount of time left between now and the long-awaited Disney sequel's December 17 release. Anticipation has been running high ever since the very first announcement. But it jacked up to unmanageable levels in late-July, when the San Diego Comic-Con trailer dished out a massive helping of kickass.
At least there's been a steady flow of promo material since then. Stills. Posters. An iDevice app. Samplings of the Daft Punk soundtrack. Toys upon toys revealed. Tons of stuff. Now there's a new poster. Revealing a new character no less! A Hungarian poster surfaced on Kinopoisk.ru (via /Film) featuring Beau Garrett's character Jem, one of the movie's four Sirens-- characters charged with overseeing the Grid Game armory. Check out the full image after the jump. Read More...
The folks behind the last three "Saw" films have another thriller in store for you, and it's coming down the pike July 31. "The Collector" follows a handyman and ex-con who aims to dig up some scratch for his ex-wife by robbing his employer's country home.
Naturally, things don't go according to plan and our anti-hero finds himself trapped by a masked "Collector" who sets a series of traps that the studio describes as "the Spanish Inquisition as imagined by Rube Goldberg," all while trying to rescue the very family he came to rob. Check out the poster below.
It's one of our most highly-anticipated movies, and now we've got another first look for the gloomy animated flick "9." Following nine ragdolls in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, we've already given you an exclusive two minute scene from the film. Now we're back with a brand new poster which you can see below. "9” stars Elijah Wood, Jennifer Connelly, John C. Reilly, Crispin Glover, Martin Landau and Christopher Plummer," and hits theaters 9/9/09.
See that little image off to the side there? That's your first taste of the official "New Moon" poster. Exciting stuff, right?
Before you click on, I have a question for you "Twilight" buffs out there. Outside of an obsessed fiancèe, this job has been my first real exposure to the series. I would normally jump right in with the books, but I've heard that the movie may be a better place to start. I know there are some serious fans reading this, so I welcome your advice. Now, do you want to continue reading my babble or do you just want to get to the freakin' image already? Well? Why are you still reading?! Read More...
One of the biggest movies of the summer won't have explosions or gunshots (that we know of, anyway), it'll be a low-budget comedy about a flamboyant Austrian fashionista. That's right, Sasha Baron Cohen is coming back to America with "Bruno," his follow-up to his wildly successful "Borat."
We won't see the full extent of his hijinx until July 10, but you can get a taste of what's to come in the first official one-sheet. Check it out in its full glory after the jump. Read More...
