The Evolution of Movie Posters

Seems these days it's all about the poster. Makes sense right?? Because other than the trailer, isn't that pretty much what sells a film to viewers?

Remember the old saying: Out with the old and in with the new? OR, how about this one: What goes around comes around? OR: The circle of life? That's the best one because it implies that something starts in one place, makes a full circle and ends up right back at the beginning.

The same could be said for movies and with this recent rash of remakes (tongue twister) that really does prove to be true. With that, we bring you: THE EVOLUTION OF MOVIE POSTERS (you have to say that in a Star Wars voice with the echo and all). Enjoy and feel free to comment with which poster you like best. Old or new.

  1. I have to say, in every case, I like the new ones better. I'm all about advances in technology and graphic design, and I'm always excited to see what changes artists come up with for remake one-sheets.

  2. The Last House and Bloody Valentine ones don't really count since those are DVD covers made in the 2000's.
