Design: Best Movie Posters of 2012

Here are a few of the best (followed by a few of the worst).

Promethius

Promethius

A ‘Teaser’ for the IMAX version of Ridley Scott’s somewhat disappointing Promethius.

The Master

The Master

Another teaser. I didn’t see the movie (and don’t know anyone who did) so I don’t know what the signifacance of this is, but damn, it’s cool and odd and beautiful.

The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises

The IMAX poster. This is from a series of high-contrast images all with interesting use of the bat logo – can you find it?

Hitchcock

Hitchcock

Another nicely designed teaser. Even though Anthony Hopkins really looks nothing like Hitchcock the poster is great.

Cabin in the Woods

Cabin in the Woods

Love this MC Esher style poster for one of the best horror movies in years.

We Need to Talk About Kevin

We Need to Talk About Kevin

Holy Cow! If you haven’t seen this movie you really should. It’s not a straight horror movie but it is horrific. The take on the ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ poster is very interesting and quite misleading. The use of an embryo and the type face both having horns and a devils tale could fail horribly – but here it works.

Haywire

Haywire

Nice to see the credits somewhere other than the bottom of the poster and the almost transparent quality of the image and colors give a unique effect.

Casa di mi Padre

Casa di mi Padre

I’m a sucker for this old damaged look. Meant to replicate old Mexican Novella posters this is great and it’s in 2D.

Sound of My Voice

Sound of My Voice

I don’t know anything about this movie other than the teasers fuckin great.

The Amazing Spiderman

The Amazing Spiderman

The rest of the artwork for this movie sucks so its nice to see this.

The Raven

The Raven

Not a great or even very good movie, but nice use of imagery and sloppy Ralph Steadman type.

Stoker

Stoker

Once again a ‘Coming Soon’ poster for a 2013 movie. I will see this movie just because of this very detailed and slightly eerie poster – and it’s directed by Park Chan-wok.

Nurse 3D

Nurse 3D

Yes, this is kind of a joke, but what a joke it is. Here’s the story; a photographer took a bunch of nude photos of Paz de la Huerta covered in blood. In one of these she was wearing high heals and a nurses cap. So… this became the first movie to be made from a still photograph. It really is a striking image. The second poster for this is a black and white photo of an adult man suckling a breast – taking the ‘Nurse’ theme in a different direction. Both for obvious reasons have been pulled from general release and are pretty hard to find. We’ll see what the final art looks like should this movie ever be released.
