I like the border-less look. Here's an original....
I am often in the less is more and Can't say it any better than this: "No frills here but then none were needed. The park’s logo against a simple black background and signed off with the inspired “An Adventure 65 Million Years In The Making.” Instantly identifiable and conveys all the information with simple elegance. Testament to the fact that sometimes less is more."
Another great poster that captures all the key components of the film: BACK TO THE FUTURE
The iconic image "superbly riffed-on in the posters to both sequels... this artwork from master of the medium Drew Struzan takes all of the film’s iconic objects (Marty’s threads, the DeLorean, the flaming tyre tracks) and combines them in a single, stunning image. Plus he’s looking at his watch. Because time travel."
Spielberg really had some great movie posters... ET is another. "Based on Michelangelo's Sistine chapel ceiling piece, The Creation Of Adam, this reproduction has E.T.’s as the hand of God and Elliot’s (actually poster designer John Alvin’s daughter) as Adam. It’s an apt reflection of the film’s religious allegory and an indelible image for movie fans. It was replaced by Amblin’s now synonymous flying bike image in later posters but this first effort remains the most effective."
Russian poster for Afgrunden (The Abyss) (1910), probably from a couple of years later.
Wow, I was the assistant audio engineer on Street Trash...
Love the minimal palette simplicity of this one, reminds me of one of my brothers Absinthe posters.
Didn't see this thread before, will have to come back.
Jaws is probably my favourite ‘Blockbuster’.
I’m particularly fond of this poster.
