For my second essay, I must compare and contrast posters from an original film to the remake. The movie I chose, for now, is War of the Worlds. This was originally a science-fiction novel written by H.G. Wells. There are many differences between each poster, but they also some similarities. For example, in the original poster, an giant alien-like hand is reaching down,about to grab two people who are surrounded by fire. In the remake, the alien hand is holding the planet Earth; the planet appearing to be on fire. They are both drawings, but the remake’s poster is much more detailed probably with the aid of computer detailed enhancements. I can continue, but I shall save the rest for my essay. Here are the posters, the remake is on the right.
