Poster: Outlander. Where Are The Vikings?

I couldn't agree more.

"Aliens vs. Vikings? How can we sell that?"

"I have no idea!"

"I know, we'll make it look painfully boring! No one wants to see aliens and vikings fighting, but everyone wants to be bored!"

"I've got just the thing. No one could imagine in their wildest dreams that this movie could have the least bit of entertainment value."

"It's perfect! I'm falling asleep just looking at it."

I don't know if I would fall asleep just looking at the poster. That might be a little harsh. At first glance, if I knew nothing about Outlander, I would think it was an end of the world disaster movie where Jim Caviezel was Christ returned in 2012 to save us all.

But it isn't about that. It's about vikings, an advanced human, and the alien that crash lands with him. You're right, we need some vikings. I think they must have heard your call, because if you google Outlander poster the only one you get is definitely loaded with vikings, way too many vikings.

Yeah, it may be a little harsh, but only a little. The giant head... Seriously, I'd boycott all giant head movies if that wouldn't keep me from seeing any movies at all. Those posters suck! I want to say they all do, but I'm sure someone could pull up the one out of ever 10,000 that it works for, and remind me that I'm exaggerating.

I found this poster, which is, I assume what you're referring to. It's better than a giant head in cool blue tones over a cool blue Earth. It has Vikings, which is always good, but it still does remarkably little to suggest action or excitement of any kind.
