  Poster Collective's Best 10 Studio Posters of 2012



I like words. Who doesn’t? Ya know what I also like? Typography-based posters. Wonderful example of that style. Kudos.


It’s got a ’70s vibe and that’s pretty much all it takes these days to elevate a poster from boringhood. Love the subtle peach (or pinks) and the simple old style title font.


A creepy ass Gollum embedded into some old timey scroll paper all written in gibberish? Ok, maybe it’s not gibberish but this foreign IMAX poster is pretty darn sweet.


This poster was plastered and stuck all over L.A. for weeks and weeks. To which I can say that it’s a good thing there are no children living in this city otherwise their parents might have had a hard time explaining this concept. Seth MacFarlane gets another win against decency. Bravo.


This is the funniest fucking thing ever. I thought about getting this poster, blown up to about 8 foot by 6 foot and making it the centerpiece of my apartment. So great. So funny. It does exactly what I want a poster to do, which is make me spit up some sorta dribble on myself. PS. This movie is surprisingly good, don’t believe the critics.


The first posters for this film were pretty bland as if Disney was simply saying, “It’s Tim Burton and a property you are all familiar with, just go see it.” To which I responded with far off look of sadness. Then they slapped some wonderful ’50s style B-movie fonts and made fake movie posters out of key characters and just like that my frown was turned around. And as a double bonus, like all good posters, they mean even more after you see the film.


What’s not to love about this classic poster featuring Will Ferrell in his first all Spanish language film? I love the nod to the Mexican flag (eagle/snake) and the tagline is pretty solid too (“Funniest movie you’ll ever read”). It would be right at place a Gone with the Wind poster….from a distance anyway.


If you were to argue this was the best poster of the year I wouldn’t try to fight you. I might challenge you to a arm wrestling contest or some Roshambo, but certainly not a full on fight. This poster is just a shade under 5000% better than the movie. Just wow.


Johnny Sampson’s poster is just fantastic. The kind of print that allows your eyes to wander in amazement at the level of detail and meticulous care put into the piece of art. It’s one I am going to have to own, especially post viewing the movie and realizing that almost everything you see in the poster is actually in the film.


Another one that is tough not to love. It sells the this scary anthology perfectly and brings back a major case of nostalgia for us VHS lovers. Super concept + Super execution = Super poster.


This one isn’t much different than the original poster (just the IMAX version), but it packs a few more “Oh Shit” and “WTF” moments for us to ponder in the mysterious canisters, not to mention the look on space scientist woman’s face. I hadn’t been this excited for a movie in since forever.


Because God Damn! Just look at it. This is arguably one of the best posters of the last 25 years, let alone 2012.
