Cape Town – When a new movie hits the big screen the poster is normally the first clue to whether or not the film will be worth the watch.
Apart from the trailer, teasers and the media hype – a poster is an important ingredient in selling the product to the audience.
In a modern world where viewers are visually bombarded with amazing images and pretty rad special effects it isn’t always easy to grab the attention with a 2D poster.
However sometimes the movie guys get it just right and create pretty incredible posters. Here’s our list of five movie posters that are actually pretty awesome:
1) August: Osage County
2) Wolf of Wall Street
3) The Kings of Summer
4) The Fault in Our Stars
5) The Grand Budapest Hotel
As an extra bonus we threw in two movie posters that sadly just didn’t make the cut despite having some high-profile celebrity faces on them:
1) The Heat
EXTRA EXTRA BONUS: An animated GIF movie poster. Pretty amazing:
