Alternative Movie Poster Tuesday: Night of the Living Dead

14 Oct

Happy Tuesday!! I hope everyone had a great start to their week. I’m sure you all are getting excited about Halloween! I know I am so this week I wanted to look at some “Night of the Living Dead” alternative poster designs.

The original “Night of the Living Dead” was released in 1968. The movie poster featured a mash-up of scenes from the movie and the tagline, “They wont stay dead!”…

“They keep coming back in a bloodthirsty lust for HUMAN FLESH!…Pits the dead against the living in a struggle for survival!”

Now lets check out some alternative designs. Continue reading


Alternative Movie Poster Tuesday: Gravity

7 Oct

Hey, guys! I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start. For this week’s Alternative Movie Poster Tuesday I wanted to check out some “Gravity” posters. “Gravity” stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney and this thriller is on it’s way to becoming the highest grossing movie to open in October ever. I talked about the official “Gravity” movie poster in my first blog post, The Movie Posters of Fall 2013 and I found some cool redesigns. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen the movie yet so please leave comments if you have and let me know what you thought of it! Which poster concept do you think fits the movie best?

Alternative Movie Poster Tuesday: Star Wars

30 Sep

Happy Tuesday, everyone!! For this week’s Alternative Movie Poster Tuesday I wanted to look at some Star Wars. More specifically, we’re going to check out some posters from Episode IV: A New Hope. This is one of my favorite movies of the series and I love the original poster design.  I found a really cool selection of alternative designs as well.

starwarsbg (1) The amount of detail in this poster is awesome. The illustration is so well done; that along with the ripped edges gives it a really great comic book feel. Limiting the design to only a few colors was a good choice because there is so much to look at here. I get a sense of depth because there are so many levels and layers. I could definitely stare at this poster for a long time. This guy does amazing work.  Continue reading
