Oz Great Powerful Banner

By Meg Malone

Things are stormy around the Emerald City, as Walt Disney Pictures' newly released the poster for Sam Raimi's "Oz The Great and Powerful" reveals.

Back in June, the first image of James Franco as the titular character hit the web, but the character is relegated to a barely visible balloon passenger here. Instead, the focus seems to be on the more on recognizable imagery from the 1939 "The Wizard of Oz," including the blustery tornado and the yellow brick road. The glittering Land of Oz off in the distance and the Wizard's hot air balloon sailing in are a few spots of bright color in an otherwise pretty dark palette.

Matthew Fox is a man of many weapons: sniper rifles, bazookas, explosive disc thingies and "your wife is so pretty" jokes. With all of these weapons at his disposal, he can feel free to ignore the memo warning him not to cross Alex Cross. We'll be standing right behind him, by the way.

Fox's descent into method-acting madness is on full display in the brand new trailer for "Alex Cross," the James Patterson adaptation hitting theaters this fall with Tyler Perry playing the titular forensic psychologist. Directed by "Fast and the Furious" helmer Rob Cohen, "Alex Cross" represents an unlikely game of cat and mouse between Perry and Fox, one that could very easily bring viewers all the way to the gates of Hell. We would not have it any other way.

Campaign Poster

Have we mentioned we're excited about "The Campaign"? Because we're pretty excited about "The Campaign," the new political comedy that pits Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis against one another as competitors for a North Carolina Congressional seat. The only problem with the film is that its marketing campaign is asking us to pick sides between the two opponents, which is near impossible considering how freaking ridiculous both of them are.

For now, we'll go with Galifianakis' Marty Huggins (see below), if only because he's living a pug lifestyle. But we can't deny the appeal that Ferrell's Cam Brady has as well, especially with that bald eagle on his arm. In the end, they both are terrible options for a state's political representative, but who's paying attention to that sort of stuff anyways?

Paddington

It's a little bit "Harry Potter" (especially with producer David Heyman aboard) with a dash of "Hugo" (train station plus gold lettering), but what really matters in the first poster for "Paddington" (via ComingSoon.net) is the polite little fellow in the middle of the poster.

Yes, this is the first one sheet for the upcoming adaptation of the "Paddington Bear" books. The classic character is getting the film adaptation treatment and a "Hugo"-esque name shortening.

Anna Karenina Poster

We want to send a special thank you out to whoever first introduced Keira Knightly and director Joe Wright, because thanks to them we now have the gorgeous, epic first trailer for "Anna Karenina."

This is Knightly and Wright's third film together, having also teamed up for "Pride & Prejudice" and "Atonement." Appropriately, there's something that feels more mature about this project than their previous two. Maybe it's the Leo Tolstoy source material or maybe it's the fact that Knightley seems more comfortable letting herself go in Wright's hands, but the trailer for "Anna Karenina" has a bit more bite than their other two collaborations.

Though she's playing the movie's titular character, Knightley isn't the only reason we're excited for this film. Aaron Johnson plays her lover, calvary officer Vronsky, and we're thrilled to see him in a period piece (and speaking in his native British accent). Jude Law takes a more subdued turn as Anna's husband, Karenin, and we're looking forward to seeing him challenge Knightley on the big screen.

Taken 2

It's only appropriate that on the day after Father's Day, a poster featuring one of the greatest father's in movie history hits the web.

Empire has the first poster for "Taken 2," the sequel to the surprise hit of 2008 starring Liam "I Have A Particular Set Of Skills" Neeson.

The poster confirms what has long been rumored as the plot of the film, which will have the Albanian bad guys from the first film seeking revenge against Neeson's Bryan Mills for simply keeping the promise he made. (He did find them, and he did kill them.)

De Niro Red Lights

Almost six months after the fact, the first releases from this year's Sundance Film Festival are beginning to roll out. One of the most talked about movies from the fest, Rodrigo Cortés' "Red Lights" starring Robert De Niro and Cillian Murphy, is scheduled to hit theaters on July 13.

In the lead-up to release of the psychological thriller, we're unveiling four exclusive character posters from "Red Lights." The prints feature head shots of the four leads (De Niro, Murphy, Sigourney Weaver, and Elizabeth Olsen) with teasing phrases, like "What do you think you know?" and "Don't trust your eyes."

Check out the full posters and learn more about "Red Lights" after the jump!

Prometheus

"Prometheus" spoilers are no good. There's a reason that Ridley Scott, Damon Lindelof and everyone else involved with the project have been so damn secretive all this time: the movie hinges on mystery, and to tip too many hands is to spoil the surprises.

All that said, if you've been watching all of the "Prometheus" trailers, viral videos and other bits of footage that have rolled out over the past several weeks, then what you're about to see in the "Prometheus" international poster past the break shouldn't come as much of a surprise. We've seen this shot in the trailer, and we still don't know the how's or why's, so I feel as though the surprise is still intact. But your mileage may vary when it comes to spoiler sensitivity, so click on for the full poster at your own risk.

Skyfall

Sometimes, the old saying is really true: a picture's worth a thousand words. When the picture in question is actually the first official James Bond poster since 2008's "Quantum of Solace," it's worth considerably more than a thousand words.

Without further ado, then, click past the jump and check out the first full poster for "Skyfall," Daniel Craig's glorious return to the 007 franchise hitting theaters this November.

Mission Blacklist

If you've been following movies anytime since 2008, then you're probably acutely aware of what Robert Pattinson's eyes look like—especially if you're a frequent shopper at Walmart. Well, guess what? They're back.

The promotional poster for "Mission: Blacklist" was released by Embankment Films. The image casts a shadow around Pattinson's face only revealing his glowing peepers. The tagline for the film stands out in white among an assortment of letters and reads, "In a world of lies, only one man can see the truth." Standing out towards the bottom of the poster is the name Saddam Hussein.

Check out the full poster and read more about the film after the cut, and thanks to Mission Blacklist Film for the heads up!
