Even 'Olympus Has Fallen' Gets Character Posters and They're AWESOME!

You know how character posters for movies work right? If you're a good little movie blogger you will create separate posts for each one and you will get new pageviews for each poster. For example, and we'll just keep the numbers simple, if you get 10 views for the first poster you are likely to get 10 views for each subsequent poster if not more. You know, because these things catch on.

In the case of these three character posters for Olympus Has Fallen that means 30+ pageviews as opposed to just ten for posting all three at once... like I'm doing. Yes, I'm bad at my job. Advertisers hate me.

Now, the studios like this as well because that means you'll post one poster on Tuesday, another on Wednesday and then another on Thursday, which means three straight days of free advertising, leading up to the final poster, which I'm sure will look something like the quick mock-up I created and placed at the bottom of this post. You see, everyone wins! Except you, of course, but the reader is hardly a cause for concern... right?

That said, here are three character posters for Olympus Has Fallen, the first of two films based on terrorizing the White House this year.

Oh, and I'm sorry, the headline was misleading... they aren't good posters at all, but they do have FIRE!

    I actually thought that last poster was real until I scrolled back up and read your comments.

    I thought that final poster was real as well! I smell a new way to fund the podcast mansion...

    Love the article haha.

    Terrible posters (except the last one, of course) - but seriously, the least they could do is have tagline match the visuals...design 101.

    That last one is so good.

    Why did they take part of the Independence Day poster?

    • Jake17

      That's the fake one. :)

      • Jake17

        Unless the other ones are all part of the Independence Day poster, in which case I am very confused.

          Only the last one is fake, the rest are legit.

    The posters all look decent. They adequately promote the film to the target audiences that would likely be interested in seeing such a silly film. They are a success.

    I got a good chuckle out of that last poster. Thank you, Brad, for making me smile.

    That last one was well-done.

    "When our flag falls, our nation will rise".... oh god, was this directed by Ben Affleck, written by Mark Boal and produced by Kathryn Bigelow? Cause it wouldn't surprise me.

    • Chris138

      It sounds more like something that Mike McCoy, Scott Waugh and Kurt Johnstad would be involved with.

  • David Baker

    For some reason I am seeing Mark Strong in that poster instead of Aaron Eckhart.

    These posters look like a mid '90s throwback. Maybe that's what the aim is, which means the movie will be anything from AIR FORCE ONE to a Joel Silver brain-dead wonder.

    I actually purchased a Windows 8 via an ad on this site a few weeks ago. Microsoft must love you.

    I need this poster up on my wall now!

  • Chris138

    God, these look like covers for a straight to DVD movie...

  • Joshua
