Here is a galley of the best 25 movie posters ever, according to Premiere.com:
Some great choices, and I'm glad it's not just riddled with current entries, but I feel some of them aren't visually striking enough to be included.
Y'know, I thought the same thing! huh.... I guess great minds think alike.
The first thing I thought of when I saw the title was Vertigo. Glad to see it came in number 3. Sad though that no SW movies made it in. The original ANH poster should be at least top 10.
You're damn right Iacon
Shared the link with a friend, one of noted wonderful taste in all things, and she said the same thing
MP I kind of expected to see a SW poster too, pretty iconic, but I guess that's only for us nerds eh
Funny, I was feeling the exact same thing.
Yeah, that is pretty sad. That original Star Wars poster (yeah, the one from ANH) is incredibly iconic. It's a real shame that didn't make it in there.
The above posts pretty much sum up my thoughts. I too had expected to see the original Star Wars poster in that list. I was very happy to see vertigo and seven year itch given props.
Yeah, that list is pretty much bullshit. No wonder Premiere's circulation is so shitty that they are having to fold.
O.k., here's a couple that are better than most of the ones on that list:
Too many similar posters of an actress just standing around. I mean, sure some of them are good, but there's just not enough variety going on either. And they seem to be stuck in the 30's and before and have given too short shrift to some newer entries, even if good movie posters may be few and far between today.
I agree with all the posters Jiggles suggested, and add Fritz Lang's Metropolis in too:
re: premiere list
thats why i buy empire.
Attack of the 50-foot Woman FTW. I'd hang that directly across from my toilet. Damn, is that awesome.
I wonder if the original list was compiled by an older person. Someone who would have some sort of bias over the good old days...
Here is another one that IMHO, had to b in that list:
Good choices Jiggles and Lance. I totally thought they'd have The Exorcist poster on there, but alas.
Iacon, that one was definitely a nice teaser eh
I'd say y'all's choices are far better than the ones in the source article.
