Awesome Movie Posters

I've always loved movie posters- have a couple hanging on the walls. I saw a thread on GAF today (and one on Penny Arcade a while back) about the best movie posters and thought it was pretty interesting, and I wondered what posters you all like. Some of my favorites:

Hitchcock's Vertigo:


Episode 1 had a great poster, even if the movie wasn't so rad


The Shawshank Redemption had a great one too

Not really into posters, as evident by my very sparse bedroom walls, but I was a fan of The Watchmen and Dark Knight posters.

Of course, it may just be the hype around both movies that causes me to remember these posters fondly.

The American Zack and Miri poster has always bemused me because the minimalism is out of irony and nothing else, since the marketing controversies attached to that movie all but forced them to use it. That, and seeing stick figures in a poster makes me wish they were a more common sight in movie marketing.

The poster for Brokeback Mountain with Heath and Jake sort of standing in opposite directions was pretty iconic.

@Jeffsekai: Agreed. Good to see someone else who likes it. Most of my friends never heard of it.

@Lies: Both of those posters are fantastic. Vertigo is a great movie and Episode I was meh but, nonetheless, both posters are great.

I've seen a lot of magazines choose this one as the all time best movie poster. I agree it is a great and simple poster but I'm not sure if it is the best.

As much as I like the art on the ESB posters, I hate how they had to make Han Solo not look like Harrison Ford because at the time he wasn't signed up to the movie.

Way to ruin it for me. I hadnt even noticed until you said something, and now I'll never be able to look at it the same again, like the cover of Goldeneye (N64)

Yeah, the Shawshank poster rocked.

Funny you mentioned that.  One of the guys in this movie (who the movie is based on, I think Ray Liotta plays him) actually lives in my town.  Crazy huh?

Henry Hill is the character of Ray Liotta; he lives in your town? That is pretty rad, that dude is still alive after all these years.
