The 13 Best Movie Posters of 2012

The Wolverine Movie Poster

Most fans of comic book-inspired films know that The Wolverine will be set in Japan, which explains why the first official poster promoting the film was inspired by Japanese ink paintings and calligraphy.

Going with this artistic style was a smart decision by Twentieth Century Fox, as the dark, broad brush strokes pop against the pure white background - turning this image from a promotional item into a true work of art.

Any fan of Wolverine will tell you that while he is constantly battling to keep his rage in check, there is also a softer, more emotional side to him. That sort of yin and yang is represented well here with the stark black on white contrast.
