Alternative Movie Poster Tuesday: E.T.

24 Sep

Hey everyone! I have some cool news. I’m deeming Tuesdays “Alternative Movie Poster Tuesday.” Every Tuesday I’ll choose a movie and find some cool alternative designs to talk about. I was inspired to do this by one of my favorite websites, which features 1000′s of alternative movie posters from hundreds of artists, graphic designers and illustrators. I will pull many of the posters I choose from this site, as I find it’s often difficult to track down the designers of some posters and AMP always gives credit. You can also view posters by artist if you fall in love with a particular design.

For this week I chose Steven Spielberg’s E.T. This is one of my favorite movies and the poster design is iconic! I found some awesome re-imaginings as well.

I love the color here and the choice to use such an iconic scene. The artist captured the sunset so well! The gradients are perfect. It’s landscape orientation is uncommon for a movie poster but definitely the right choice for this design.

E.T. Movie Poster Alternative Design 2

This may have to be my favorite of the three. I love this galaxy background and how the top section of the door blends right in. This drawing style is so great too and I like how it contrasts the background.
