There have been many creative and eye-popping designs for film posters over the years, and a lot of them have become just as iconic as the films themselves. No matter how much they've told us about their respective movies, these posters made us want to line up and buy a ticket. These are the 15 Best Film Posters of All Time.
It's a simple but effective poster that best fits one of the biggest cinematic blockbusters in history. Somehow, the T. rex skeleton tells you precisely what you're going to see, but it still leaves you wondering what the film has in store for you. And that tagline alone makes it feel like this is the movie to end all movies, as all of history has led to this one motion picture.
Jordan Peele is a master of making horror movies and telling the audience almost nothing about their story. This poster does the same, as it makes people more interested in unraveling the mystery. Here, we only get Daniel Kaluuya's character screaming in a chair, which is pretty much everyone in the audience being frightened by this film. But the division of black and white in the poster's design communicates the film's study of race relations in American society.
Apocalypse Now is a film that sticks with you long after it's over, and this poster does the same with its truly unforgettable imagery. Marlon Brando's Kurtz looks like he's crying as the choppers fly past the sunset, capturing the film's grim and unrelenting depiction of the Vietnam War. Also, the way his "tears" form the shining Do Lung Bridge emphasizes the movie's psychedelic nature, making it a great lead-in into Willard's trip into the heart of darkness.
While there weren't any eggs like the one seen here in the actual movie, the poster is still effective in intriguing its audience. With the green crack glowing over the now-iconic tagline, you already understand the kind of alien horror that this film will throw at you, but it'll still make you want to see it for yourself.
Who could forget the image of a giant shark swimming up toward a woman swimming in the ocean Though Jaws doesn't show the shark until late in the film, the poster leaves little to the imagination, displaying just how frightening the movie's aquatic predator really is. This succeeded in catching the audience's attention, as Jaws became one of the most successful and influential movies in all of cinema.
Posters, on the other hand, can step back from it and give it a wider view. Or better yet, it can confuse the viewer even further. Here's some of the best posters from classics and more recent ones...
One of Nicholas Cage's best roles in recent years outside of 'Bad Lieutenant' and 'Mandy', 'Lord of War' is a criminally underrated movie and its poster is a work of art. It looks like a Roman mosaic initially, but on closer inspection, it's made up of bullets.
Drew Struzan created pretty much all of the most iconic posters of the '70s and '80s. 'Coming To America', 'Indiana Jones' and 'Star Wars', 'Back to the Future' - he was the go-to guy for Steven Spielberg and a few others. If you get a chance, have a look out for the documentary on his life and work - 'The Man Behind The Poster'. If you're any kind of a movie geek, it's worth a watch.
What made this poster so cool was that it wasn't telling you anything about the story. Instead, it just gave off an unsettling vibe and, as well, displayed the loneliness of Robert DeNiro's character.
Like 'Drive' and indeed all the best film posters, this one doesn't tell you anything about the story or the plot. It's a mood piece that lets you know exactly what to expect. As well as that, it's unbelievably evocative of that old-school style that Quentin Tarantino nailed.
Say what you like about Lars Von Trier and his films, you have to admit he has some clever ideas for posters. Between this and 'Nyphomaniac, Trier's posters are some of the most thought-provoking going.
The poster for 'Anatomy of A Murder' showed that posters were more than just something to look at in the lobby of a cinema. It could be enjoyed and viewed as a piece of art itself. This was all down to legendary designer Saul Bass who revolutionised the idea of film posters and film artwork in general.
As film posters go, those made for the Star Wars franchise are undoubtedly the most recognisable. Every summer blockbuster is a recreation of the original posters that 'Star Wars' and The 'Empire Strikes Back' had. Look at any blockbuster and there's either a rejigging of this poster right here or some subtle nod towards it. It's iconic - and with good reason.
The moment you look at this poster, Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" will no doubt start ringing around your head. Star Leonardo DiCaprio is actually a keen collector of original movie posters. Spoilers, the film doesn't end well!
A string of stunning posters were released for the 1927 film Metropolis. If you have this lurking in your attic it's worth noting that one of the posters from the German sci-film sold for nearly $700,000, making it the most expensive movie poster ever!
Starting with erotic stories and wood block prints from before the 20th century, Japanese pornography evolved. Explore Japan's diverse sexual health practise through home sexploitation, tastefully scandalous and hot skinless nights posters. The unique characteristics of Pornography in Japan reflects Japan's views on sexuality and culture, a wide spectrum of sexualities performing sexual acts with unique fetishes and paraphilias.

Most movie posters were printed in very limited quantities and all of them were not meant to be saved. After their initial use, they were supposed to be returned to the studio or destroyed. Posters especially from the 1930's through the 1980's have become very popular. Many titles have skyrocketed in value and have been and continue to be an excellent investment. Unlike other investments, you can actually display and enjoy your vintage posters.
Please be advised that over 95% of all original movie posters printed before the mid-1980's were issued folded. They were shipped to theaters this way inside film cans. This is not considered a defect. Vintage rolled posters do exist, however, they are extremely rare. We can have any folded poster linen backed (an archival conservation and restoration method) which will make the fold lines virtually disappear and make it appear to be in "like new" condition.
Also please be aware that most movie posters were actually used at the theater and will contain slight imperfections like writing on the back, pin holes, fold wear, etc. These are all very common and to be expected, but if they bother you, all these minor flaws can be remedied in the linen backing process.
We do not sell cheap reproduction movie posters. Reproductions (or reprints) are posters that were sold in stores and not issued by the studio. There are also tons of fake and bootleg posters out there. BEWARE! They can be very convincing and often fool auction houses and experienced dealers and collectors. These have virtually no value and are not collectible.
In November 2017, eye brows were raised as one of just two surviving copies of the Style A One Sheet poster for the 1931 horror classic Dracula (Universal, 1931) sold for a record breaking figure of $525,800. Auctioned through Heritage Auction, a Dallas based Auction House, Dracula set the world record for the most valuable movie poster ever sold at auction. While just a year before private collectors paid well over $1,000,000.00 each for only two known copies of the German film poster for the Fritz Lang silent master piece Metropolis (UFA-Cinema Art Ltd., 1928).
Not to be outdone, there are more recent titles quietly doubling or increasing in value as well. Titles such as the iconic One Sheet for the 1975 Steven Spielberg classic Jaws, are showing signs of more than doubling in value over the past 12 months. Star Wars posters, James Bond, just to name a few more, have slowly but steadily increased in value to the point where many are becoming unaffordable for the casual collector. Here are a few more examples illustrating what a sound investment this can be for a collector at any level:
It can be easy to take movie posters for granted. Often indistinguishable from other great works of printed art, it can be hard to remember they are ultimately pieces of advertising, designed to capture and sell to an audience. Perhaps no other form of advertising is more adored than key art; it sparks our imaginations as cinema-goers, adorns our walls, and distills the legacy of some of the greatest films into a single image.
The group emphasizes that this is by no means a comprehensive list; there are hundreds of other posters that could have made this list. But we are grateful for their selections and their thoughts, and we hope this list inspires more great work from the industry in future.
About Molly: I started my career at a boutique creative agency (Michel/Russo) and got my chops working on both print and A/V campaigns for indie films. It's where I truly fell in love with our business as well as the incredible pool of creative talent who streamed in and out of the office as freelancers. I was a sponge, took in everything there was to learn and I pinched myself daily to be so lucky. In 2000, I moved over to the "client" side and led the creative at places like IFC Films, Newmarket and Picturehouse, as well as having my own business consulting for various distributors while my children were younger. I joined Amazon Studios' movies marketing org in 2015 and I've been there ever since, building a team of creative directors and leading the creative for 360 global campaigns for all movies on the slate. I have had the pleasure of working with some of the most inspirational creative folks in town, both on the filmmaking and the vendor side, and still continue to pinch myself daily. 59ce067264
