Favorite Movie Posters - part 3 (the art and alternates)

The great part of having so many graphic designers around is that there is now a plethora of specialty movie posters. These can be from specialty design shops (Mondo being the largest and best known), one offs for special screenings or re-releases, design competitions, or portfolio work for artists showing off their skills and style. Or studios can release things online that movie snobs will like, without having to try to sell their more artistic ideas to the masses. Here are some of my favorites, with attributions when I could place them.


Marvel Studios/ LA Times Hero Complex Film Fest.

Longnecks! Tree stars! the Great Valley, a land still lush and green. ....what? (Mondo.)

Part of a set of four and used in the international marketing campaign. (La Boca)

So I think this is actually a mash-up between a version of the comic and the DVD/blu-ray packaging. But I really love the image.
To be fair, I loved all the posters for this film. They were all as gorgeous as Mark Romanek's movie. This is from Sam's Myth, who does great work.

Jay Shaw.

Joel Amat Guell.

David O'Daniel.

Ibraheem Youssef.

Sir Paul Smith. Part of a set of four.
Rowan Stocks-Moore. Part of a series.

Adam Sidwell. Part of a series.

Eric Tan.

That concludes movie posters for the minute. It's tough - there are so many fabulous designs out there. Counter-programming for the multiplex.
