Lately, I’ve been spotting many alternative posters for popular movies. Just yesterday, I caught myself writing about Mr. Shabba’s new posters for Oscar-nominated movies. Last year, we saw some excellent illustrations along the same lines. Star Wars art is ever green, never needing a reason to inspire the artists and designers of the world.
The above posters caught my eye. In this case, the absence of people, robots, aliens, spaceships, explosions, etc. is testament to the power of the Star Wars franchise. But it also got me thinking about how many alternative poster designs I’ve seen lately. Many of them are awesome. I don’t even need to review the following posters. Just have a look.
Love the limited colour scheme and strong use of shape. Obviously, each silhouette is taken from an important character in that movie. Also, a bit of a nod to mid-century book covers from Penguin, et al.
A cheeky approach, referencing the posters of Full Metal Jacket, Goodfellas, and American Beauty, if you didn’t know.
Highlighting the battles, of course.
