There's nothing more excited then the release of a new movie! ...At least for me... I love wondering what twists and turns, relationships, or comedic relief will come my way when I watch a new movie for the first time. What better way to get fans buzzing than the release of the movie poster??
In honor of South by Southwest (SXSW) Film week, which started yesterday, I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite movie posters. Some were created after the films were released while other's were posted in the lobbies of our favorite movie theaters.
Juno, Interstellar, Forrest Gump, and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers are great examples of minimalist design. In this case minimalist design is the "use of the fewest and barest essentials or elements, as in the arts, literature or design." The designers used very minimal design elements to effectively portray the concept of these four films.
Lincoln and Jurassic Park's posters are just so beautifully done I had to include them. They both portray a sense of mystery to me. The peace yet turmoil expressed by the black and white image of Daniel Day-Lewis draws us in and makes us what to know Lincoln's story, thoughts, and motives, while Jurassic Park's poster brings out the curiosity of our inner child and makes us think "What's behind those gates?"
I hope this makes you want give the movie posters you see a closer look.
What's your favorite movie poster?
