    Default Swipe File: First Poster For After Earth And First Poster For Oblivion





    In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself? If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn?t judge, it?s interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist?*collect images and lines they admire in order to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.

    Oblivion definitely has the better poster (and trailer for that matter), but quite insane how comparable the two are given they were likely in development at the same time.

    EDIT: IGN apparently swiped your Swipe File

    Hilarious how they don't even hint M. Night Shyamalan's involvement with After Earth.

    These trailers played back to back when I saw the Hobbit. Really diminshed both of them.

    Agreed. Seemed like every trailer I saw there was somehow related to the apocalypse or an apocalyptic-type event. Really took the steam out of all of them, leaving only Warm Bodies as a standout in my mind.
