Poster Art

Even though trailers have become the hottest way to display a new upcoming film, before the internet boomed posters used to take that role. Plastered across movie theater walls, they had to encapsulate the essence of a movie in a single, beautiful, wordless frame. The posters were an artform all on their own.

Movie posters aren’t as drooled over as before, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some damn some beautiful ones. After all, the John Wick 3 poster has completely floored fans.

With such a beautiful image on the tips of our brains and fluttering our hearts, let’s take a look back at other posters that give wonderful eyegasms and other artistic feels to anyone who sees them.

Some of these designs have inspired and impressed for decades; prepare for some serious optical pleasure.  (more…)

Ever since I started writing for this site, I have seem many (and have posted many) poster art posts and I think this may be one of my favorites since gaming is my second love (food being my first). Anyway, the Brians over at IGN has come up with some poster art for video games. The posters are basically retro advertisements but instead of regular products, these poster are advertising power up’s as products.

From Super Mario Bros. to Legend of Zelda, there are 12 posters and I wonder how many of ya’ll will be able to recognize all of them. The Bubble Bobble one is may favorite as well as the Metal Gear one. Click after the jump to check out the posters and tell us which one you like. (more…)
