Film Posters - part 1

2012 Lincoln

In recognition of yesterday's 2013 Oscar Awards, and Daniel Day Lewis' historic third Best Actor Oscar, I thought I'd take a look at some contemporary (and one or two not so contemporary) film posters.

I have quite an extensive digital archive of film posters and will put together some themes on here from time to time in the future. I like the fact that a simple, strong, monochromatic design was used for the Lincoln poster, and have put together a group of other minimal, monochromatic (for the most part) designs that I like.

There is often more than one version of a film poster (and has been throughout the history of film posters). The next one here is an 'alternative' poster for Zero Dark Thirty, another 2013 Oscar nominee:
