Film executives want to make sure people from all over the world will watch their movie. Actors and directors do press tours to promote their latest work with the hope to entice people into the theatres. It’s not enough to make a great film, you have to seduce audiences into wanting to see it.
One medium to get folks visually attracted are movie posters. Sometimes the poster becomes just as famous as the film itself. Who can forget Jodie Foster’s face with a butterfly on her lips in Silence of the Lambs or the famous profile of a T-rex’s skeleton in Jurassic Park?
These prints know how to capture the feel of the film with the right image, font, and colours. Graphic designer Peter Majarich wanted to re-create famous movie posters using his minimalist style and interpretation of the story in a series called, A Movie Poster A Day.
