G.I. Joe, the Man of Steel and a peek into Oblivion. A blockbuster poster quick fix.

Thought you might like to get a quick look at what's headed into theaters in 2013. Here's the latest taste of poster art for three hopefuls looking to grab early blockbuster status.

G.I. Joe has finally learned to put their box-office star front and center.  They've also pulled an early release date out of the hat with very little to get in their way before the big guns start firing in April and May. Whatever your taste, it may be a fun distraction just for Willis' now patented smart-ass hard-ass you can't help but root for.
Paramount gets out of the gate early with a March 29th release.


Personally, I'm not feeling this first true taste of Henry Cavill as Superman, but then I wasn't drawn in by Zack Snyder's first trailer teaser either. And what's with the burst of light behind the neck and all of the soft focus? Last time out, Snyder's Sucker Punch felt like exactly that, so Zach's got something to prove. Sounds like a job for... sorry, couldn't resist.
Set for a Warner Brothers release on June 14th.

And finally I'm intrigued. Yes, the graphics feel a little too familiar, but the last time we saw futuristic vehicles and Tom Cruise's name together we went on a sic-fi ride called Minority Report. And the last alien landscape director Joseph Kosinski splashed across a movie screen was the dazzling game grid (and not so dazzling story) in 2010's Tron Legacy. It's happening in April which means it's the perfect precursor to all of the Blockbuster Summer hype. I'm all in.
Releasing from Universal on April 19th.


Thanks to the studios and the folks at impawards.com for the artwork.
