dJ phuturecybersonique said...

for the first time in malaysian movie history, we're gonna have a human backside on the poster, not to mention, a movie that shows lots of flesh -- literally a "wayang kulit"! i hope you do the authorities' heads in! muahahahaa!

Rentap said...

Af, I like the posters cos its different than your other movies.I think u got to be the leading Malaysian Male to promote Malaysian movies that is not mainstream but has issues to be discussed.Good on ya.... www.ibanguy.blogspot.com

taynaed said...

helu afdlin..
luv em!
the 1st:so cute..
2nd :hmm..cute butt..

hehehe
gudluk!!tak saba nk tgk..

annakin said...

Oh Gosh, PLEASE use the first one. The second one has a very obvious VPL!! (or is it VUL in your case?) Not that I'm suggesting wearing thongs :o

Lisha Zulkepli Perai said...

The blue one is beautiful, very professional, but kind of runs a different commentary in your head of what the movie is about. Maybe a combination of the blue one and the Malaysian edition?
The one underneath is better, if only it were REAL interpretation of a sumo wrestler, i.e. one that doesn't wear pants underneath his costume. Be daring, bro! Just do it!

Lelabah said...

1st one is ok..but yang 2nd tu..tak kena langsung lah! Apasal pakai tights? Tak real lah cam tu..Btw, nice job! Keep it up..

oldrockers said...

yang biru tu gempak....

Suhaimi Yusof said...

Hi Afdlin, I'm Suhaimi Yusof (TV Host from Singapore). I'm doing my own TV production & telemovies now. Am looking for any opportunity to work together on a movie or any TV prog collaborations. We met briefly during Phua Chu Kang shooting. If you cannot remember my face- you can log into www.suhaimiyusof.blogspot.com. How to get in touch with you? Can email me at suhaimi@qnque.com.sg

emie said...

aloo blubber..
hmm... the blue one looks good i thought.but mebbe the title should be made a bit more gempak? bigger fatter font mebbe?

the 2nd one ok gak actually except for the tights la, lebih "kena" with sumolah.if lu tanak bukak aurat tunjuk ur bum (cellulite can be airbrushed one dont worry...), then guna la stand-in with healthier buns.
jangan marah ha..

sulfuricacid said...

International Poster yang kaler biru tu lagi best...
cam berkata2 lak poster tu.... (cewah!)

(dia kata apa... aku tak tau la... aku bukan poster jadi aku tak paham waakkakakakka)

Ey d' lefty said...

The 1st one ade class.. tp kureng oringinal.. the 2nd one a lil bit 'brutal-feel' (jgn mare eeck...), but the originality ade lah..

but i think the one pulling ppl masuk wayang and watch Sumo-lah will be the name on the poster -Afdlin Shauki la kut. hehehehe..

ainfazrin said...

salam.
ohkay,the first one is awesome!the second butt (eh,i mean the second one)appears more appealing to me tho..hahahahah.kidding.

all the best,afdlin.

sally said...

both very cool art works.so how come the international posters are in Malay? I tot u would use english for international promotions.

All in all, I love all three posters, very nice.

Anonymous said...

Not to say i hated the Local Poster, but i prefer the international poster better then the local one. Both international poster are awesome. Why not just throw away the local one and just out these two locally...

Amiene Rev said...

yang warna biru itu, warnanya menarik. tapi tak ada konsep sumo.

orang-orang itam tepi laut tu boleh menimbulkan pelbagai tafsiran, sama budak kecik main air tepi laut atau... hantu air dekat laut atau... monster!

yang kedua tu.... nampak ok lagi. ada ciri-ciri sumolah katakan.

oh ya Afdlin... aku mahu bertanya:

Berapa banyak sushi yang digunakan dalam filem Sumolah?

halda said...

Afdlin,

Keep up your GREAT works. I think you are a true Malaysian Gem.

Salam Aidilfitri - belated.

dua-dua pun tak cantik,i hope poster ada afdlin face.i love you,
afdlin shauki......muuuaaahhhhh.

patrickteoh said...

Brudder, here's my 5 sen la. None of the posters really tell viewers what to expect of the film but the one with the beach scene is the most engaging. Visually. And yes the "Malaysian" poster does look...too Malaysian.

AyuZai said...

suka poster yg no 1 tu..kaler biru...tak sabar nak tgk filem ni..moga abg afdlin success slalu..idup chief kodok..

huZmid said...

suka yang no.dua :)

Your reader said...

I wonder what does it feel like to be an afdlin shauki who gets to showoff his own 'rear cheeks' for his own movie... :p

nENn said...

i like the 2nd one.taktau kenapa kalau poster filem2 Malaysia mesti nak letak smuer actors/actresses in it. serabut~

Erra said...

the beach scene, i like best ...

Anonymous said...

1st:
1)cantik
2) laut and org tgh practice : mcm ada menceritakan sthg...
3)air laut- represent unsur2 soft
4) tingat cite karate kid bila tgk poster ni

2nd:
1)like it
2) nampak gempak - powerful
3)tapi knape body dia nampak ramping? - sumo bukan x berapa ramping sgt ker?

phiz said...

both nice la bader ... who's backside the second one ?

Kenny T said...

I agree with Patrick Teoh. The posters tell too little of the movie. They are nice pics... but they show none of the movie's comedic value or entice the audience.

It's too vague... Imagine Jack Black's Shallow Hal poster (it gets the message across with one poster). Ok, in order to get my point across, I'll use a more recent example, the "John Tucker Must Die" poster. Nice but I don't get the gist of the movie from it. I shouldn't have to read a synopsis... or watch the trailer to want to watch the movie.

For an international movie... I think "The Host" (korean) does it very well. The little girl with a helpless expression and the legs of a creature blurring out of focus behind. The poster should tell a story (especially when the audience doesn't know who is Afdlin, Patrick or Gurmit), it shouldn't just focus on a scene.

It should captivate those foreigner's imagination with a story... not a scenery. That's all I am saying. As for the local poster, hey if it works here. I think it looks great.

my suggestion:
face of an intimidating angst sumo wrestler (it's you in this case), in the middle, medium close-up profile, wiping blood or sweats, backed with other casts watching, in the middle of the sumo fighting rink.
the message will cross like this: here's a sumo wrestler with full determination to strive for his goal - PANTANG MENGUNDUR SEBELUM BERLAWAN.

ada mutut ka?

afdlin shauki is my hero.

lyana said...

en afdlin!!! I like the blue poster!! any chance of screening it in Oz? I just got here, study, will be missing many fantastic malaysian movies ('cinta', yours, yasmin ahmad's) yeah, will surely help promote it if it gets screened here! =)

bee_mine said...

i thought the posters were amazing. ;) cant wait till it gets released, and if you want, come down to brunei for a huge promo yes? ;)

amy x x x

azdra azdra said...

en afdlin, byk sgt tgk teaser posters nih, dah tak tertease nih. Knp x tayangkan sooner. Coz' by 2007, I'll be in Temerloh. Temerloh takder cineplex or cinema. uwaaa anyway, my way or the hiway, ;) the blue one tu, a bit the mysterious. x dpt impact terus ke hati. ala2 kena cucuk ngan duri ikan pari baru best. the 2nd better. dia ada link ngan title. klu bley nmpk real butt. hehhe

sau said...

the first one!! me vote for the first one..blue tepi laut scene in the poster is very chantek!

dil said...

saya undi untuk warna biru. noktah.

Anonymous said...

...saya pilih no 2 kerna ada unsur-unsur seni yang terlalu kompleks tahap dewa lalu orang akan tertarik untuk menontonnya

Anonymous said...

afdlin,
just make sure that your poster especially the 2nd one doesnt offend anyone,especially some japs..

sumo is a big thing for them,you might end up getting sued..

Anonymous said...

I vote the 1st one! (the blue one)

Anonymous said...

hmmm, it doesnt matter which poster ur gonna use. the malaysian version is okay. so are the so-called international ones. either way, people will still flock to your movie regardless of which poster you put up hahaha.

wenkt said...

Is Isma in the movie too? he's a good actor too...

denko heart girl said...

like this poster better, cute heart shape ass...

rotlol :p

defoo said...

Surely cant wait!!!!

fadz said...

the blue one doesnt look like a comedy..the second one, action oriented? the malaysian one looks distinctive malaysiana (putting the whole actors into one poster) and u know its a comedy (the way the actors are potrayed)..is this a comedy or an action pack saga mix drama 'against all odds' like Karate Kid?

azhar said...

both of them are great..

coz they are all different from other typical Malaysian Movie poster..

memang bestlah abg afdlin punya stail..

anyway..ada can tak saya bekerjasama dengan abg Afdlin...
i'm a cartoonist/comic artist..hehehhe...

mana tau ada can jadi conceptual /storybrd artist..
hehehhe

feel free to drop by my blog

se-paras jek said...

hi aflin...

im a bit kura2x when come to following your project..anyway...bulik balik baru jek tgk..klakar...its like a compilation of stories from you n friends...macam real life events...

Anyway...about the 2 posters..i think...:

no 1) The blue is really nice....tapi bila tgk sumo jln kan macam iklan yg apes jalan ...yg macam kat dlm mag National geograpic tu...macam the first human on earth tu...i dont think u understand what im trying to say but macam tu la..

Mungkin ada message yg tersendiri..mamat pakai payung tu macam dia sorang bukan ape...

No2) Yg ni kan macam sumo sakit tulang belikat belakang sebelah kiri..he..he..feel dia macam tulang dia retak but maintain teguh...he..he..

Apa2x pun i think org yg punya idea poster tu yg faham kot...

tu jek...wish that "sumo" will be as hit as others...

morning glory said...

i can't wait for the movie...but, about the poster, the placing of the name look kacau sikit la...no other way to change it issit?? its a bit disturbing....(my opinion je...)

i hope to be able to see the movie...seeing u & gurmit together must be darn funny...

nina najwan said...

brader,
dua-dua pun ok. yang second one tu pun ok, look what others can't look, read what others can't read.

reena said...

byk prefer yg 1st ye.for me, i prefer the 2nd one.yg 1st ok.tp x ummph.biasa je.x de ape yg menarik.2nd is much better.lain drpd yg lain.sgt creative i must say.emm..but i dont like the malaysian poster la.TOOOO TYPICAL.cam malay movies yg lain.semua nak sumbat dlm 1 poster.sgt semak.pls make it simple and nice.less is more, brader! anyway, keep up the good work.

Anonymous said...

both are good but i love the 1st one better...the poster look so cool or maybe coz i love blue color...but who cares...can't wait to see the movie...

Anonymous said...

I like the one in blue!
