What makes a movie poster so engaging? Over the many years of cinema, movie posters have provided the most vivid and iconic imagery associated with the great films. Images seared into our subconscious that instantly allow us to recall great moments in movie history. Great posters over the years have publicised movies long before the age of trailers, viral marketing and social networking. Not only can a great poster be appreciated for its ability to boost a films appeal but they can be considered great pieces of work in their own right. Here are some of my favourite movie posters.
