Teasers Gotta Tease- Many of the teaser posters this year were vastly superior to the official ones. Why can't people just go with these?
The hint to what made the film so unique was always there in the teaser posters. And the one in the middle that came after Comic-Con is awesome as hell.
Let's be honest, all the Gone Girl posters more or less sucked. Remember those weird "BELIEVE" ones? However, these teaser posters were very clever and fun.
X-Men: Days of Future Past
I just love how smart the concept of these are. There's a Wolverine one too but these are better.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 1
The Panem propaganda posters was an excellent piece of marketing by the promoters. And the creepy whitewashed one is the right kind of disturbing.
It almost looks like a kids drawing but then we see not just the kiss in the foreground but all the nudity and a blowjob in the background. I love it.
It's just so wistful. The other posters of the movie are almost as good.
It's a pity that the film got such bad reviews because this poster seems to say so much. I love the colour palette.
Not only is this striking to look at, it's also perhaps the most mysterious poster of the year.
The colours, you guys. This film was uber cool and the posters show that.
Guardians: Teaser + Official + Fanmade
The tagline in the teaser kind of won the round but I still love how epic the official poster looks.
I couldn't make this list without mentioning these fanmade posters which are some of the best I have seen all year round.
Fanmade fare: Speaking of fanmade, I have to include these gorgeous Korean posters for Mommy.
I love that they chose to make one one with that shirt in it. It stood out so much in the movie.
The promotional work of Birdman has been topnotch, especially the fantastic city posters. I would love to own these.
Oscar Bait: No matter how we feel about them, one can't deny that at least the posters are good.
Both of these *kinda* follow the same structure with putting the lead in focus and then giving us an idea of what the plot of the film revolves around.
This one is definitely my favourite poster from the Oscar baits. It's sort of doing the same thing too but god, it's lovely.
Jake and the Crawlers:
Heyyyy I just noticed how the spider is a crawler too. Connection!!! Anyways, I love both of these posters. They're both unique and memorable and differently unsettling in their own ways. What a year, Jake!
The New Horror:
I think both these posters are going to be iconic. Both of them follow a similar idea and it works soooo well.
The attention to detail is amazing.
It's sexy, it's cool, it's Eva Green. What's not to love?
There is a quite violence in the poster which hints at the film's story. I really like that.
The Eisenberg one is more sinister and is totally apt for the movie and Wasikowska's goes with her character or at least how she is seen. Doppelgangers are creepy.
Ordinarily, the writing would annoy the crap out of me but in the case of this particular movie, it almost feels like it's part of the its rhythm. Therefore, it works perfectly.
Where did these even come from?
When I was going through other best poster lists, I came across these. I'd never seen them before but I do think all of them are great. Especially the bottom two.
Best of the year:
I genuinely believe that character posters will never, ever, ever, ever, ever get better than these. Ever. These are the fucking be-all and end-all when it comes to character posters. They are HILARIOUS (Udo Kier, everybody) and they kind of remind me of the opening scene of Marie Antoinette in the way that von Trier knows what we think the film will be about and he's just rubbing it in our faces. The dude has a twisted sense of humour and I do enjoy it most of the times, especially in this case.
I also loved the other teaser posters from the movie. Again, only von Trier can make that whip into a heart-shaped poster :P
It looks so cool. The shade of pink, the "V", the contrasts. Stunning.
I also love these posters. The "Last Supper" parody makes me laugh every time I see it.
The first one was *so* close to being my number 1. I had like a minor aneurysm the first time I saw it. It gives me so much joy. The second one is so cute and unique too.
If I could, I would have an entire wall covered with this poster. It's mesmerising and dreamy and just soooooooo beautiful! It breaks your heart with its beauty. I mean, it's the stars and Scarlett. How could anything beat it? It got under my skin for sure.
I also love this poster from the movie.
And that is it. What were your favourite posters from this year?
