Actor Martinez © 2016 Mary Jane Films. This intriguing minimalist poster forms part of a cohesive series on view in the Small Form Films gallery.
Kong: Skull Island © 2017 Warner Bros & Legendary Entertainment. Illustration style, color palette, layout, typography—everything is just picture-perfect in Bond’s homage to the early blockbusters from the 1970s.
With their IMAX special edition poster, Little Giant Studios pays tribute to…
…Tom Jung and Bob Peak’s iconic painted art for Apocalypse Now.
The Devil’s Candy © 2015 Snoot Entertainment. Apocalypse Now’s influence also surfaces in Ken Taylor’s gorgeous artwork.
I like how the blotchy painted lettering is similar, but not identical, in the two posters.
House on Willow Street © 2016 the Darkside, Fat Cigar Productions. The painted theatrical one-sheet references the classic horror movie posters from the same era.
My Scientology Movie © 2015 BBC Films. The inimitable Ralph Steadman lends his scratchy pen strokes and watercolors to Mister.S’ theatrical one-sheet combining photography with an illustrated background.
Carrie Philby © 2016 Braveart Films. Beautifully painted key art from The Refinery, with strands of blue hair framing shimmering, lifelike eyes.
This whimsical alternate design creates fun orange color accents with the goldfish, wallpaper, and movie title.
T2 Trainspotting © 2017 TriStar Pictures. Black-and-white photography, bold Neue Haas Grotesk knocked out of intense orange, and a lot of attitude are all this poster needs to sling you twenty years into the past.
Song to Song © 2017 Broad Green Pictures. The vinyl single aesthetic serves this theatrical one-sheet very well.
David Lynch: The Art Life © 2016 Absurda. It’s always fun to see friends’ typefaces in the wild. This poster, for example, features Erik van Blokland’s Action Condensed. The chiseled leg on the R bears some resemblance to Amplitude.
In Search of Israeli Cuisine © 2016 Florentine Films / Sherman Pictures. Eagle beautifully ties together this book-cover-like poster.
