A little while back, over at The Focused Filmographer, our buddy T shared a series of great sketch posters for the IMAX release of “The Hobbit” in his weekly series “New Posters of the Week”. I was really impressed by them… thought they were very cool.
Then, this weekend, watching the special features for “Back to the Future”, they were discussing how fortunate they were to have gotten the movie poster that they did… how the image of Marty looking at his watch while stepping out of (or into) the Delorean became as iconic as the film itself.
I think we’ve all owned a movie poster or two in our day, I know I have a handful up, myself. They’ve become a huge part of the film industry… there are even posters of older movies being made now as art! Mondo posters, minimalist posters, posters for limited re-releases… you’ve seen the ones.
So which are you favorites? What’s YOUR favorite movie poster? Do you or have you owned any? I realize that commenters can’t post images, but, time willing, I’ll help out for those who want to leave a link to the poster they’re referring to, and I’ll save it as a file and upload it so we don’t have to hotlink. Let’s keep the quantities reasonable, though, shall we?
Let’s hear it people! What are Your Favorite Movie Posters?!
