Rejoice upon These Movie Posters

I am Not Your Negro

Another year means another string of fine movie posters accompanying some of the best movies released. The year 2018 is still ongoing so it is a little too soon to talk about this year’s best movie posters. Instead, let’s take a look back at 2017’s greatest movie posters so this year’s contenders can have others to compare to. As it is, it is rather futile to talk about all of 2017’s movies so let’s pare our choices down to select posters. Let’s begin with “I am Not Your Negro”. The poster to this movie is very difficult to ignore that reflects the movie’s content.

“Logan” is a truly different creature compared to its fellow superhero movies. While other movies within the genre all try to feature as many things as it could into a small space, “Logan” decided to only display the main characters’ hand holding each other. It was such a poster with a deep meaning that helps define another take on the genre. “John Wick Chapter 2” has a poster that is a throwback to the 1918 movie “Two-Gun Gussie” by Harold Lloyd. It clearly displays the movie’s content and Keanu Reeves’ triumph in kicking the asses of his enemies.

Horror movies have a knack of featuring a slew of amazing posters and “It Comes at Night” is not an exception. In fact, the poster can easily be one of the best at promoting a horror movie. A white dog against a pitch black backdrop is exactly what you should expect of the movie. The use of Times New Roman adds unexpected creepiness level that you may not see coming. “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” might not be everyone’s cup of tea with its heavy dramatic content. But its poster is definitely a masterpiece according to Yorgos Lanthimos, the director, never backs down from serving esthetical movie posters for each of his movies and this one is no different.
