AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Artists) of Atlanta asked brand designer and art director Russell Shaw to contribute a promotional artwork for the second annual poster show.
Today is the grand opening of The Dark Knight, and we are all really excited! How much butt will this movie kick? A LOT. And to celebrate its opening, we're making a collection of all Batman Movies Posters (or just the best ones, as you wish).
We had several Batman movies already, in which Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney played the Dark Knight. Keaton and Kilmer, in my opinion were really good, and even though Clooney is one hell of an actor, he was a lousy Batman. But I guess eveyone will agree when I say that Bale is the right man for the job, right? We've seen him playing the Batman we were all waiting for.
Anyways, talking about posters, some are really terrible, like the one with Tommy Lee Jones as the Two-Face. I mean, seriously? We can totally see the evolution of graphic design here, where the two last films have really stunning posters, not reaveling too much, not being too corky or cheesy like Batman & Robin's posters. Well, just check them out! And long live Bale as the Batman. All these great posters were found at the best movie poster site out there: Movie Poster Awards. Every single movie poster we might ever want. ;)
