180º South
Rating: B+
Commentary: From the eco-destructed title to the gorgeous back drop, this poster is certainly something to look at and possibly even display on a wall, but it’s also not the kind of poster that tells people effectively what the film is about without them having seen the trailer first.

MORNING GLORY, posters #1, #2 & #3



Plot Summary: A ratings-starved morning show gets a new producer who doesn’t realize the mess she’s getting into, including a vitriolic old newscaster who must be paired with a co-host with whom he has a confrontational history.
Release Date: November 12, 2010

Morning Glory
Rating: D+
Commentary: While those are familiar with the phrase “What’s the story, morning glory” it is important to let the younger generation (who aren’t likely to see the film anyway) know why the film is titled Morning Glory. And in the process, the makers have created posters that are difficult to look at, garish and uninteresting.
