the 25 Best Movie Posters Ever

If watching a film is like having a dream wide awake, then movie posters are invitations to those dreams — a lot of weight for one image to carry. Premiere Magazine has selected some of the best examples of this art-meets-commerce form — some profound, some silly.

A great movie poster is a hard thing to find. Most posters are cut and paste jobs that don't sell the movie very well at all. A great poster should intrigue, shock, inspire & excite. It should be aesthetically beautiful or original. Above all, it should be so memorable that a single glance will be instantly recognizable.
