PostSubject: The Poster Thread   Fri Oct 03, 2008 10:07 am

There's nothing much that's better than a good film poster. Well, there is, but that's not the point. I love film posters though. A few favourites of mine, and post your own.


Obvious choice first. It tells you diddly about the film, but it is both inviting and foreboding. Plus it brings back memories of the fantastic music that accompanies the scene.






I love these three that came out for Open Range, reminds of the art during the credits of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.








The old horror films have some great artwork







A few Disney favourites





I remember Disney did quite a few posters in the same style of Beauty and The Beast round that time. A nice Aladdin one, The Little Mermaid etc.



Some Hitchcock





and the last one for now, a Spielberg favourite

Nice ones Gimli!! I'm gonna post a few of my favourites here!! Wink

Here's a few from Terry Gilliam's finest... Wink







Here's a few from Woody Allen's more recent efforts, even if the quality of the films are middling, they do yield good posters... Smile







And now, for a few from Ken Russell!! Very Happy

I love those Gilliam, Allen and Russell posters. Batman's a winner as well.

These two are nice and simple, but effective

Then there's this little beaut from our Polish cousins:

Just a shame that The PhantomMenace poster has the bloody annoying oik on it. Great idea though.

Poland has some superb posters.

Yeah, countries like Poland and Czechoslovakia came up with some BRILLIANT poster designs during the era the Soviets ruled the roost. It makes you wish that Hollywood's poster artists and marketing people would take notice... Wink

Here's a couple more ones for Kubrick's films, and you know what?? I think he would have been proud!! Wink

The Shining



A Clockwork Orange



Here's a few more I like!! Wink

Blade Runner



Yellow Submarine Very Happy



The Return of the Pink Panther



Jabberwocky

Back to Polish posters, my favourite "old" film of 2010 is The Last Remake of Beau Geste, a wild comedy starring all our favourite Hollywood greats, Marty Feldman, Ann-Margret, Michael York, Peter Ustinov, Henry Gibson, Roy Kinnear, James Earl Jones, Spike Milligan, Trevor Howard, Terry-Thomas, Burt Kwouk, Irene Handl with Lurch off the Addams Family and Blakey off On The Buses!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
