Everybody loves to look at movie posters (or one-sheets as they are sometimes called in the movie industry) and a well-crafted poster can make or break the buzz for an upcoming film.

Sometimes the poster predominantly features one character from the film or perhaps it depicts the story or plot in an artsy and unique way. Regardless of which direction the marketing department for a film chooses, a poster should either be intriguing, sexy, funny or cool – and it can’t hurt to combine all four.

Today we have wide selection of movie posters from a very diverse selection of films – excellent fan-made art for movies yet to begin filming, horror films with a sexy twist, summer blockbusters, and even a campy SyFy Channel film. No matter what your taste in movie posters may be, we are sure to have something for every movie buff to enjoy. Let’s start off with some fantastic fan-made art.

The Dark Knight Rises

Undoubtedly director Christopher Nolan’s third installment of his hugely successful Batman trilogy will be one of the most anticipated films of 2012. Casting for The Dark Knight Rises is still underway so there hasn’t been an official poster released yet – but that hasn’t deterred some very talented and creative fans from making their own. Graphic designer Josh Gilbert put together the teaser poster below. Be sure to check out the rest of his work at Shokxone Studios.

TRON: Legacy

Even though TRON:Legacy made it onto our Most Disappointing Films of 2010 the film still had some redeeming qualities. While the story won’t win any awards, the SFX were amazing – as was Daft Punk’s blazing electronic score. Graphic designer Josh Gilbert (yes, the same guy from above) seems to agree with us – since he made the fake Oscar-bid poster below, nominating Daft Punk for Best Original Score. Somebody needs to hire this guy because his work is creative and fun to look at.

Hobo with a Shotgun

There isn’t a whole lot to say about Jason Eisner’s upcoming Grindhouse spin-off Hobo with a Shotgun starring Rutger Hauer. It’s a movie about a hobo – with shotgun – shooting people – and some guy dressed as a knight riding a motorcycle makes an appearance. The red band trailer and all of the images we’ve seen make the film look like off-the-wall campy fun – and hopefully it will deliver.

Thor

It’s too bad this special limited edition poster was only given to the cast and crew of the movie Thor because its minimalist art deco style is very cool – and would look good hanging on the wall of any film buff. At first director Kenneth Branagh seemed to be an odd choice to helm the project but after watching the first trailer a lot of those fanboy “fears” seemed to have been quelled. Thor stars Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman and Ray Stevenson.

  1. did u guys post that poster about the rubber tire with telekinetic powers that goes on a killing spree? its called Rubber lmao its a real movie

    • @Dr. Stranger – Ummm…you’re confusing me. The Rubber poster is on page 2. Did you not see it?

  2. okay i see it nvd lmo

  3. You know there is a lot of artsy type of poster which is cool, like the Thor and TDKR

  4. That Thor poster SO doesn’t go with what we’ve seen so far about the movie…

    Vic

    • yeah Vic it looks fan made! LOL!

    • @Vic – Well it wasn’t meant as a promotion for the film. It was a gift to the cast and crew so it makes sense they would give them something collectible instead of something they can buy in the poster section at Wal-mart. :)

    • I love that Thor poster. It kind of reminds me of the work that other minimalist artist you featured on SR a few months back.

      that movie Rubber cracks me up. I love the campy 60′s style poster. I may have to see it just because of the witty poster.

  5. TDKR poster is AMAZING! I wonder if theyll cook up something better than that. :D

    • Highly doubtful Ricky, that’s the best movie poster I have seen in a very long time.

      • Agreed, they will not come with poster half that good, I’d happily have it on my wall. Absolutely fantastic, they should get whoever made that and get them on WB payroll straight away.

        • Yeah! Whoever did it should do the Man of Steel

    • agreed with ya

      • Yeah that would look great on my wall.
        God some fan made posters are wayyy better than the real ones I dont get it.

        • simply put, fans care more than a focus group of media executives sitting in a boardroom, those are the people who design movie posters these days.

  6. I am loving most of the trailers here.
    Quick question, when will you guys post the trailer for Rubber?

    • @Jose – I’m writing it up this morning…keep an eye out.

  7. Pooh poster brings back warm childhood memories, I love it.

    Hobo With A Shotgun is my other favorite…that movie is going to be the opposite of Pooh – violence, sex and drugs

    The other posters…meh. Source Code poster is confusing.

  8. Russell Peters is in Source Code? Russell Peters the Canadian Stand-Up Comic?

    Saw a clip of Rubber… the modern equivalent of Attack (and Return) of the Killer Tomatoes… but much better and funnier.

    And somebody give Josh Gilbert an award… or at least a free coffee.

  9. What I wouldn’t give to see John carpenter’s “Pooh with a shotgun!”
    Ah, well…one can dream~

  10. I liked TDKR, Dylan Dog and Scream of the Banshee posters the best.

  11. The Dark Knight Rises is pretty sweet by the unexpectedly awesome award goes to the Tron Legacy Soundrack “Oscar Consideration” poster…that is sweet!!

    Though now that I look at it again, the Thor one is really cool too:)
