I just saw these new poster for the Green Lantern film, and unfortunately I can’t say that I’m all that crazy about them. I think it’s a good idea to include the lantern symbol (especially when you leave out the title of the movie), but I don’t like how the faces are placed dead center in the middle of the page, then scrunched and warped to fit the the thin shape of the lantern. Also, I understand that negative space can be a powerful tool to use when designing a poster, but here it seems like that space could have been better used to display a more dynamic image of the characters than what was given. Despite this, I’m still optimistic about the movie, and I really do hope it delivers… I just think they need a better poster design.
