TheScarletSp1der’s Top Movie Posters of 2011

Movie posters! One of the great arts of the cinematic realm! Can anybody tell me why there is not a category in the Academy Awards for “Best Poster for a Motion Picture”?! There should be!

Alright! Let’s get to it!

There were over 1,000 movie posters (including international versions, independent films, etc) that released in 2011!! That is a whole lot to go through, and, well, I didn’t go through them all! ha! There are probably some of your favorites that I missed!

These are MY Top Movie Posters of 2011! Tell me your favorites in the comment section!

  1. Hey T, this is cool! I’m about to post my Top 5 Faves as well later today, great minds think alike eh? ๐Ÿ˜€ Btw, I can’t see the image of your best one… broken image link.


  2. Nice post – there were definitely some great posters this year. I’m not sure about my own personal favorite, though I do like the simplicity of Shame’s poster quite a bit.


    • thanks Castor! Yes, I tried to put Drive in here, but the other ones just won over the DRIVE posters for me. (ha, it was supposed to be only 15 posters!)

      Glad Midnight in Paris is on your list as well.


  3. Hi, ScarlerSp1der and company:

    Lots of interesting posters this year. Some intriguing ones, too.

    Don’t understand all the hoopla and noise over ‘The Tree Of Life’. Poster looks way too busy. More of a collage than anything else.

    Really like the poster for ‘The Artist’. Pure simplicity in lush B&W.

    The poster for ‘The Devil’s Double’ is way too bright, glitzy and flashy. Almost hurts my eyes.


    • Hi Jack! Thanks for commenting on the posters (a subject I love to discuss)

      I like The Tree of Life poster because it’s not like so many of the same style posters we always see…a single character facing toward or away with the title above their head and some lazy graphics on the side. Tree of Life dared to be different with a beautiful collage. While I didn’t care for the film, I do like the poster!

      I knew you would love The Artist! ๐Ÿ™‚ nice taste!


  4. T, man, you seriously have one of the most enjoyable blogs I’ve read ๐Ÿ˜€

    Cosmopolis… brilliant poster! I could write a review on it it’s so awesome ๐Ÿ˜‰ hahaha completely agree with number 1 ๐Ÿ˜€
