I believe the teaser poster for Quantum of Solace premiered in February of '08 (please correct me if I'm wrong). It'd be interesting to see if a teaser for SkyFall will come out some time in February. What do you think the poster should look like?

Be nice if they would spend a bit of money and get a top quality artist to do a fully illustrated action poster (like the You Only LIve Twice posters or the Roger Moore Octopussy poster)

Only example I know at the moment is Drew Struzan but he retired

But from the "look" of the last two Craig films I think the producers will stick with the photo format- at least thru Craig's completion of his contract since this IS in a way the reboot of the franchise (They could really make a small fortune once Craig's contract of 4 films is completed because the Blu-Ray package with this grittier/ harder reality based Bond would be a sweet boxed set to own)

And since you know about the history of when the posters arrive, do you have an idea of when we might see the teaser trailer for Skyfall?
They've been shooting since November and I should think they should have enough material for a good minute trailer. (I also wonder if these days that studios try to get the director to schedule certain scenes early in the shoot so that the film can be processed and added to a trailer in time FOR that trailer to be released even while they continue to film the movie)

It was actually January of 2008. I imagine the poster to come anywhere from February - April. May's pushing it. The teaser trailer will most likely premiere with either Men In Black 3 in May, Amazing Spider-Man in July, or Total Recall in August. It might even premiere with The Dark Knight Rises who knows?

I see the poster having a nice classic vibe from the other films to this poster. It is the 50th Anniversary!

I think it would be a mistake to assume that just because the teaser poster was released for one film in February, then the teaser poster for the next film will be released in February. "It happened this way once, so it will always happen that way" is a logical fallacy.

Agreed but zero harm in speculating. Posters seem to amount to a hill of beans these days in cinema. They seem to be only effective when they're for mega-sequels. Doesn't mean that can't be gorgeous. I particularly like the poster for 'Haywire'. Also the poster for 'Shame' is simple yet effective. Olly Moss does some cool posters. Be cool to see him have a crack at 'Skyfall'

If you're going to speculate, then I think the best way of predicting when the teaser poster will be released is by looking at when the teaser trailer will come out. The point behind releasing posters an trailers is to market the film, and the objective of the marketing is to keep the film in the forefront of peoples' minds.

Look at what has been done for SKYFALL so far: every Friday, a new clapperbaord image is released. They don't show much, but what they do show fuels a bit of speculation as to what is going on. But, for the past two or three weeks, that speculation has started to die down. People are starting to get sick and tired of the same old cyrptic images to the point where they are openly saying it. So perhaps that marketing tool has been over-used (though an image that gives something a little bit more solid will probably go a long way towards satifying people).

So in that respect, the timing of the teaser poster's release is crucial. If EON release it too soon, then people will eventually forget about it before the teaser trailer is released. At the same time, if they leave it too late, then people will start to get restless (as they are now with the clapperboards). That means the ideal time to release the poster depends on when the teaser trailer is released.

Since SKYFALL is a big film, Sony will no doubt want to attach it to a big release in order to generate as much interest as possible. And looking at their release schedule for 2012, GHOST RIDER 2 might be the earliest we get it, but I suspect Sony will want the theatrical trailer to go with THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN in July, so February is probably a little early for a teaser. So I'd say that the teaser trailer will go with MEN IN BLACK 3 in May, and the teaser poster will come out some time in mid-March.

Really just trying to get a topic started. I am fully aware of how and when posters get released, but yes you are correct that not all posters come out at the same time for sequels. Not sure why attacks have to come like this. More than anything I was interested in what people were looking for in a new poster.

The release date of the film is November. There´s no reason why they should not stick to their schedule (SONY) and bring on the teaser poster in February as they are used to.

I'm not sure either.

"Captain Tightpants" - please rein in your habit of swooping down to rebut or "correct" speculative thoughts posted by anonymous usernames about the ongoing production of a series of fleeting light entertainments, in which none of us bear any risk, that ultimately amount to "some films". It's become wearisome. Such purposeless aggression.

Like I said, I feel its anywhere from February to April. I feel the trailer will be attached to Men In Black 3. It could be with Amazing Spider-Man, Dark Knight Rises, or Total Recall (All Sony films minus TDKR which is Warner Bros.)

Casino Royale's poster was released during January - April timeframe i believe with the trailer attached to Mission Impossible 3 in May 2006.

Quantum Of Solace's poster was out in January 2008 with the trailer attached to Hancock in July.

Well you can, by taking a moment to think about how it may come across and with some responsibility for what you write. It looks like purposeless aggression. Whether or not it is, that's what it looks like. Your name looks like Captain Tightpants. Whether or not it is, that's what it looks like.

Good. I'm glad to see you remember your own name. Perhaps you can also recognise why I find it difficult to take you seriously when I see you post and therefore automatically assume that there is an astringent undercurrent of sarcasm in your posts. I mean, you're supposed to be a moderator, but I think you've failed in that respect when people simply disregard everything you say and the thought of wading through your cynicism to get to your actual point is wearying.

Time then to start succeeding as a moderator (whatever the hell that means). Cheery 'bye.

You did rather walk into that one, didn't you? Ah well.

WHOOOOA! Wait a minute here.

Jim does a fantastic job - and his sense of irony is severely needed on this or any message board about nerdy stuff like James Bond.

And, really, Captain, as much as I admire your enthusiasm you take things way too seriously (your post in which you talked about getting someone on another board to admit something really nailed this impression for me).

So, please, Captain, take a breather, get some not so tight fitting pants maybe and think about this: we´re all fans here, we all have different opinions, and while we may disagree often, it just doesn´t matter. Enjoy the board. Or open up one for yourself.

And Jim, please keep going.

....ANYWAY....I would love to see some teaser material soon...I mean there's only about 8 months to go until 'Skyfall' is released, and remembering the marketing for 'The Dark Knight Rises' (different Hollywood league, I know), but we should, I feel, have some official pictures and hopefully that teaser poster very soon to get more interest in the build-up rather than fan-specific clapperboards etc.

Here's hoping!

I reckon it'll be a photo of Daniel Craig! :) It sounds obvious to say, but he is the biggest selling point of the Bond films at the mo.

Personally I'd like to see more of the fashion photography style they used for Casino Royale: that had some lovely photos. In fact Dragon Tattoo actually went a similar way with its very cool early poster: I'd be keen to see something like that.

So you're basically accusing Jim of being at fault. Classy fella, you.

The rabble-rouser in me would quite like it to be of Judi Dench, just to observe the ire it would create.

But yes, almost certain to be purely a Craig image, I'd say.

I loved the CR teaser with Bond at the casino table. It showed the general tone of the movie. Would love to have a teaser poster going that direction for Skyfall.

I agree there Tuxedo.

'Quantum of Solace' was ok...it was a tease after all but a bit bland. 'Casino Royale' showed us Bond, showed us menace,showed us class and showed a nice, as you say, tone of the film.

Let's hope 'Skyfall' will feature Bond at least similar to that.

I believe the CR teaser arrived some time mid year, and that the 'only' reason the first QoS teaser arrived earlier was because it was part of a three poster campaign.

So, there may be some basis for what could happen this time but it will be dependent on how many posters they have to slot into the time period, supposing equidistant timing between releases.

So, no answer at all then.

It was a very nice teaser poster, but I don't agree that it captured the tone of the actual movie. But I wish it did...

QOS had a simple (but very effective) teaser, but all the posters that came after that were just rubbish. Same with TWINE and DAD (well, the poster campaign for TWINE was maybe ok after all).

From MGM’s point of view, there is probably no need to build up some expectations early on since a Bondfilm has a very loyal audience. It will practically market itself.

I really liked Quantum's poster as well. Very cool and ominous. The following posters were pretty terrible, though. Seems to be the way these things go. Hopefully they avoid making the actors look like plastic on the final one sheet.

Agreed.

The QoS teaser poster was even more disappointing as it was following one of the best posters the series has had with the CR teaser poster.

I can't say that I really care too much about the teaser poster, though. I'd rather see them actually put some effort into the main poster and actually have that look decent for a change.

Didn't really like any of the Quantum posters. The theatrical poster was alright, though. Didn't think much of the first teaser trailer either, looking back on it.
