Movie Poster Series by Laura Racero

Movie Poster Series by Laura Racero

We’ve been encountering a several designers having their take in movie posters. I mean who doesn’t love movies? We are still waiting in line for movies and eating popcorn! We are still embracing the movie experience at its best. With the amount of content we can find online about our favourite movies, with that much content it’s always great what you can stir up with a redesign and a concept. Especially when you just watched the movie and you’re feeling inspired to create. We are taking at some of the movie concepts from Laura Racero who is a freelance art director, designer and illustrator in Madrid, Spain. We’ll also include some of her personal concepts where she has done a beautiful job at blending elements together from stock photos. Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives - choice, not chance, determines your destiny." – Aristotle   More information: http://lauraracero.com.

A Movie Poster A Day

A Movie Poster A Day

It’s been quite some time we last heard or seen any interesting 365 days project on Abduzeedo. We might think that designers and artists might go for a simpler route to do lettering, typography, motion or else. Some designers decided to go on another route, right to the core at making posters. Let’s take a closer look to the work of Peter Majarich and his very catchy 365 days project entitled: A Movie Poster A Day that you can follow his progress via Tumblr. The goal is easy, design a movie poster each and every day of 2016. We’ll showcase some of our favourite ones and there is a lot to choose from. Pete has done a tremendous job and let’s follow him for this last stretch! I'm designing a movie poster every day for 2016.   More information: http://amovieposteraday.tumblr.com.

2015 has been a great year so far for cinephiles everywhere, but there are still some great movies to come that will be the icing of this delicious cake.

So I thought it would be interesting to take a closer look at some of the coolest movie posters from 2015. I know some of these are not official posters, but fan-made, but some are so good that I've made some exceptions. Tell us, have you seen many movie posters these years? What's your favorite? What posters you'd've wanted to see here? I'm a big fan of the Martian's and Star Wars' posters! I hope you enjoy this selection. Also, for nearly every poster released this year, visit IMP Awards! Cheers! ;)

Remarkable Minimalistic Movie Posters

Gotta love movie posters! I mean, the fan-made ones, because Hollywood has been doing the same posters for the past decades and it's being really annoying to see such similar posters.

I love every single one of these, and for more you should check her Tumblr out. Really worth following her. Which one is your favorite?

Who doesn't like movie posters? Probably very few people, because as far as I know, people love an awesome poster hanging on their walls. David Amblard definitely love to put his own vision on some classic movies. David Amblard is a French illustrator, and his posters are really, really stylish. His take on posters of classic, cult movies, are quite impressive. I wonder if any of these are for sale. People would love to buy some of them. Anyways, these are only a few of his pieces.

Super Nice Vintage Movie Posters

I really love movie posters, and I get all pumped when get to see some awesome vintage posters like these! These are indeed some super nice examples of how awesome movie posters were back then, and how much movie poster designers should learn from these. Of course that there are designers today doing kickass posters like Hobo with a Shotgun, but that's an exception. Most of today's posters are utter nonsense of flying heads and stuff like that. But the cool thing about these is what I'm about to say now: these are for sale in an awesome shop called Eye Sea Posters. You may visit their store and buy all of these if you want. Also, if you know any more great vintage posters, leave a comment! I hope you enjoy these. Cheers! ;)

Avatar Movie: Posters, Wallpapers and More

Ok, we are all waiting to see the Avatar Movie... and until December 18th there is not much for us to do besides wait and browse around for some new images, posters or any other detail about the movie. You may like this whole avatar deal or not, but you need to agree that this movie is a HUGE technological production! Being a fan that is counting the days to watch it, being a major nerd, being a curious to check out the effects and stuff or being a regular cinema lover, you all need to see the film, at least to have your own opinion about it. I have to say that first I din't like the idea that much, but after seeing all the trailers, details, production and effects around it I got really curious to check out the final result, so for sure on December 18th I will be in a theater somewhere to do it!! I think their whole idea of doing a character that is 'the mirror' of the actors performance is really cool cause this way the Avatar almost look real, at least to me they do. :) Well, enough talking... check out this selection I made to show you more about the movie while we are all waiting! Enjoy. "I had the idea of this movie back in 95, but at that time it turned out that it wasn't technically possible to do what I wanted to do. So I literally put the project in a drawer and forgot about it. About 4 years ago I got it out to find out if it was already possible to do it." James Cameron Wallpapers Photos "This is not an animated film, it is all captured performance." James Cameron Posters "Every tiny bit of the performance that you see on the screen was created by the actors. They had to run, they had to fight and jump, all the things that you see in the film, they were doing it physically, they were not doing just voice performance." James Cameron Video - Behind the Scenes Really cool video showing how they did some of the action and flight scenes. They also explain how they taped the actors facial interpretation to 'transmit' it to the avatar and several other details. MTV presents a Live Forum with James Cameron and the stars of Avatar on Facebook TODAY at 3pm EST/Noon PST, Josh Horwitz goes live with James Cameron and the stars of Avatar. The director and cast will share their experiences on the movie and answer questions from fans. Avatar Live: an MTV News Forum on Facebook Presented by LG
