General | Latest Info

Whether it located on a billboard, in the movie theater hallway, dorm room, or basementa, spectacular film poster has the ability to grab any movie fan's attention. I have always believed that film posters are much more than just marketing material, they are art form in their own right. In fact, some posters have even become as, or in some cases more, iconic than the movie itself. 1958s Attack of 50 Foot Woman is a great example of a poster that go on to transcend the movie it was advertising. Part of the reason posters for films like the aforementioned Attack of 50 Foot Woman have become so popular and iconic today is because they remind film fans of the bygone Era. Back in the Golden Era of Hollywood, film posters were far bigger deal than they are today. Nowadays, film posters feel like lost art. This is mainly due to the fact that modern day societys preference for digital media over physical media has lessened the importance of effective and creative packaging. Therefore, less time is spent on creating memorable film posters. There has been a similar trend in music as well, with album covers. In my opinion, there is a complete and utter lack of creativity problem when it comes to film posters today. Because of this issue, it is very rare for a new film poster to stand out. To be honest, most of them end up looking the exact same. Dont believe me? See for yourself. And the back to camera pose isnt only example of modern day poster cliche. If one were to take a look at the romantic-comedy category on Netflix, they would see a never-ending scroll of posters featuring two leads leaning back to back with some sort of smirk or smile on their face. Clearly, Hollywood has lost its inventiveness when it comes to creating film posters. Despite recent underwhelming trends in film poster art form, there are still large amount of inventive and iconic posters worth celebrating. And that is why I have decided to compile a list of what I consider to be 15 greatest film posters of all time.

49. The Graduate

There is just so much to love about posters for graduation The tagline on the side is obviously an incredible addition, but the main image itself is what really makes this poster iconic. The entire essence of the film is able to be summed up in one, seemingly simple, shot. Also, this poster deserves credit for immortalizing one of the most iconic lines in film history, Mrs. Robinson, youre trying to seduce me. Arent you? There was definitely some shock value to this poster back in 1967, which I sure only helped it become as iconic as it is today.

47. Lord Of War

Yuri Orlov argues that his products kill fewer people than tobacco and alcohol. He has a point, but it's more fun and takes longer to die that way. There are few pleasures to be had from AK-47 bullet to brain, and no time to enjoy them. Yuri is an international arms dealer who has done business with every Army but the Salvation Army. He cheerfully tours the world's flashpoints, War-to-War salesman in a dark suit and tie. Lord of War is a bleak comedy, funny in a Catch-22 sort of way, and at the same time angry outcry against gun traffic that turns 12-year-olds into killers and cheapens human life to the point where it might make not only right, but everything else. Yuri is played by Nicolas Cage in another of those performances you cannot easily imagine anyone else doing; He plays an immigrant from Ukraine who has cocky self-assurance, snaky surface charm, breezy intellectual justification for most indefensible acts. He will sell to anyone, anytime, He told us during his narration, which confided secrets of his trade: He never sold to Osama bin Laden, because he was always bouncing checks. Yuri's world is a small one. He has few competitors and a short but frequently updated list of clients. The world's leading arms dealer when Yuri goes into business is Simeon Weisz, who prefers not to do business with people he thinks are evil, although his definition of evil is extremely flexible. Yuri asks Simeon to let him team up, offer Simeon rejects; he'll eventually lose a lot of business of that decision. Clients come from all over. There is a moment in the film when Yuri gets some bad news: Peace talks have started in a particularly promising market. He shifted his focus to the Bosnian arena. When they say they're having a war, they keep their word. He also found two good customers in Africa: Liberian dictator Baptiste Senior and his son Baptiste Junior. Senior are capable of shooting people dead without notice just in fit of pique. During meeting with Yuri, he kills inattentive aide, and seems ready to shoot Yuri next, but Yuri grabs the gun back and say, now you'll have to buy it, because it's use gun. It's kind of joke that appeals to Senior. Yuri's life and even his fortune are save. Yuri lives in Manhattan luxury with former model Ava Fontaine, who believes him, or pretends to believe him, when he says he's in the international shipping business. That business took a turn for the better with the collapse of the Soviet Union and the sudden appearance on the black market of enormous caches of weapons. Luckily, Yuri is related to a now-retire general in Ukraine, and they do business. The movie, directed by Andrew Niccol, has some of the same stylistic aggressiveness as David O. Russell's Three Kings.

38. Rosemary's Baby

Visionary graphic artist Philip Gips, designer behind many of your favorite Movie Posters, died earlier this month on October 3 at the age of 88. His most iconic designs include unforgettable one-sheets for Rosemarys Baby and Alien, which portend terror awaiting audiences without giving too much away, and he worked steadily beginning in 1968 All Way through the late 1980s. Gips also memorably created a striking poster for 1976 Academy Award-winning media satire Network. According to a recent obituary in New York Times, while designing a poster for Network, Mr. Gips suggested that the unhinged news anchorman at the center of the story, Howard Beale, be pictured strung up on the television antenna, as if he were being crucify. The Tagline was supposed to be the Greatest Story Ever sell, Michael Gips said in a phone interview with NYT. But it was far too controversial for studio. The movie centers on Finchs news anchor, whos mad as hell, and plans to kill himself on live television because, of well, ratings. In the 2007 Survey, Premiere magazine chose Gips stunning Posters for Alien, Rosemary Baby, and Downhill Racer among the publication ' 50 Best Movie Posters of All Time. Gip work in the arts extends beyond movies. Currently, two of his pieces live in permanent collection at the New Yorks Museum of Modern Art in New York, including a poster for the 1974 erotic Film Emmanuelle, which youll see below. Fun fact: Gips also designed the logo for ESPN in 1983, and it is still being used to this day. Another fun fact: now-infamous tagline for Ridley Scotts Alien, as seen on the Gips poster, was penned by the artists wife, Barbara Solinger Gips. In space, no one cares to hear you scream. Per the New York Times, in addition to his son Michael, Mr. Gips is survived by his wife; daughter, Dana Gips; three other sons, Steven, David and James; 11 grandchildren; and a sister, Zelda Lempert.

9. American Beauty

It's easy to obsess about the 1980s being the golden age of mainstream cinema, and forget about all those incredible flicks 90s multiplexes had to offer. American Beauty, for one, takes cliches of safe, suburban life and turns them on their head with a biting, yet strangely life-affirming tale of lost souls seeking their way out of their misery. Imagery-wise, movie revolves around the unforgettable scene of a naked schoolgirl, bath in roses, playing centre stage in a middle age man's fantasy. That scene is slyly hinted at in this evocative poster created by Pulse Advertising. Typography is, quite rightly, par back, giving space to the image and the seductive tagline 'Look closer'-subtle signifier of seedy surrealism to come.
