Minions, Monsters and Groovy Steve Jobs; the 10 Coolest New Posters of the Week

Minions, Monsters and Groovy Steve Jobs; the 10 Coolest New Posters of the Week

It may be a short week with the Fourth of July holiday kicking in, but studios are still busy pumping out posters to try and promote their upcoming films. Here then are the 10 coolest posters from this week. Are there any favorites in here?

Let's kick things off with the groovy new poster for jOBS starring Ashton Kutcher. Up until now, the film has received mixed reviews, but there's no doubting how cool (and colorful) this poster is. jOBS arrives in theaters August 16.

Sticking with the groovy theme, minus the tie-dye, here's the new international poster for The Way, Way Back. The film gets a limited release this holiday weekend and if you're in the mood for a great coming-of-age movie, definitely worth checking out. 

Speaking of coming-of-age movies, The Wizard of Oz arrives on IMAX screens for a limited release in September. Here's the first poster for the digitally converted classic.

Dorothy and company aren't the only people visiting a strange new world later this year. Here's the latest poster featuring Vin Diesel as Riddick. The sci-fi action-horror flick hits theaters September 6.

Offbeat characters is something the folks at Laika do well. They've brought us Coraline and ParaNorman and next September, they'll bring us their latest stop-motion production The Boxtrolls


Looking for more strange creatures? How about giant robots and monsters? Check out Japanese Jaeger Coyote Tango facing down a giant monster while Tokyo Sky Tree leans like Pisa in the background of Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim. Click the banner for a larger version.

Sticking with the international theme and well-known/respected directors, here's the new Mexican poster for Ron Howard's F1 movie Rush starring Chris Hemsworth and half of Daniel Bruhl. Rush races into American theaters September 20.

The "D" is definitely not silent in this first Japanese poster for Diana. The poster promises to "tell the story of the real Diana." Diana does not have a domestic release date, but will likely square off with the other blue-eyed princess Grace Kelly (played by Nicole Kidman) in Grace of Monaco.

We couldn't ignore what is potentially going to be the biggest movie opener of the month. Here are two new banners for Despicable Me 2. Click on them for larger versions.
