Check out these new retro minimalist movie posters for Hitchcock, Spielberg, and more

Apr. 17, 2012by: Alex Maidy

With the recent reveal of the DJANGO UNCHAINED teaser poster, the beauty of minimalist movie posters is once again news. Hollywood has relied very heavily on Photoshop in recent years to ensure they cram as much visually into posters as possible but it sacrifices the art and intrigue that can be created with just shadows and primary colors. With the exception of the awesome posters Mondo puts out, the desire for posters falls on the internet fan community to create them.

French artist Alain Bossuyt has created a series of posters for some classic films from Hitchcock, Spielberg, the Bond franchise, and others. They are basic, bright, and would look fantastic in a frame in your home. These are what Hollywood movie posters should still look like today. Check them out.

Is anyone else getting sick of minimalist posters? The two Hitchcock ones are really nice, because they fit the films, but just minimalizing for the neat factor is getting really tired. I don't want that Raiders poster; I want to the one that actually reminds me of the movie.

A lot of minimalist posters are too minimalist and it takes a while to draw any connection to the film, but these are very stylish and play on iconic images or moments. I especially like the Raiders one, because the boulder is such a defining part of that film, and to work it into a poster like that is pretty gosh darn cool. The Pyscho one is very effective. Love the jagged road leading to the Bates house, and Norman casually standing next to it.

Minimalist art doesn't necessarily mean you use one colour scheme.

I love minimalist posters, but I am starting to see it so much now that it is making me view them as lazy art WHEN THAT IS NOT THE CASE AT ALL!

In the Jaws poster

It looks like John Travolta is in the middle doing his Saturday Night Fever thing.

Psycho, 1941, and Close Encounters are my faves. And I'd happily have them all framed and hanging on my wall in the media room of the house of my dreams.

Jaws and Raiders of the Lost Ark are my favorite ones, but way to spoil the movie's ending with the Soylent Green one :P

I literally didn't know the ending was spoiled until you pointed it out.
