RE-IMAGINING THE MOVIES

Movie Posters are not just an integral part of the merchandising of films, many of the images that drew us to the cinema remain with us as strongly as the movies themselves: I can instantly visualise the poster-art for Star Wars, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Gone With the Wind, Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Godfather, King Kong, Mary Poppins and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial...

For some time now, there has been a underground movement among artists re-imagining the posters for classic films. Below is just a small selection of the diverting and intriguing interpretations to be found on the internet – often suitably aged and distressed to suggest vintage issue!

Some require a prior knowledge of the film so are probably more entertaining than of any use for actually helping sell a picture, but all of them are stylish and many of them wonderfully witty...


























 


If you've enjoyed these 'Coming Attractions', you will find many, many more at alternative movie posters
