Mother may say "don't judge a book by it's cover," but we all know that a good packaging sells better.
The modern film industry faces the dilemma of generic movie posters. You know what I'm talking about, protagonist's back towards you, standing in front of a landscape where the film will be set at.
Or the film poster is just an actor's face. Selling the film by putting some famous actor/actress as their film poster.
or just simply, the back.
I felt frustrated by this for a long time and one day I decided to design movie posters the way I like them. Some of you may like the original posters, and go ahead! It's all about personal preference anyways.
Without further interruptions, treat your eyes to these redesigned movie posters.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Shaun of the Dead
The Imitation Game
50 Shades of Grey
I hope you enjoyed my posters! If you want to see more you can go check my Tumblr page here for more awesome movie stuffz.
Feel free to comment below on your favorite poster or even suggest some movie posters you want to see redesigned next.
So next time when you see a movie poster, whether at a cinema or on the internet, critique it. For a cover represents the beauty under the cover.
