Creative road posters

09.29.2009

We know you guys like interesting takes on movie posters, so we've got some cool ones to share with you.

These posters were created by Edgar Ascensão of Brain Mixer. Each of the movies are accompanied by a certain road sign that best fits, as he says, a poster, an image, a symbol or idea of a movie. I picked out a few that I rather enjoyed.

Even though some say that a movie poster would be easy to make in photoshop, these movie lovers actually get up and do something clever. As opposed to just slapping the protagonist on a bland background with the films tagline that the majority of the time just isn't really that funny or good.

To check out the rest head on over to Ascensão's site.

Extra Tidbit: I've always had some sort of movie posters on my wall. The first one was Gremlins. What about you guys? What was your first movie poster?

NEED MORE CREATIVE

I am really over the vignette faces of the movie's lead characters. Need real graphic design in movie posters. 1st movie poster A Nightmare on Elm Street 2, just Freddy's face.

Heh I thought this was going to be about movie posters for the movie the Road.
My first movie poster isn't really an official one,it's the video cover art for Jason Goes To Hell with the metal Hockey Mask and a snake demon thing wrapped around it and the movie tagline..I still have it I thought it was cool so I had it framed.

Duel!

My first poster (that I can remember)was a movie I doubt many remember or have even seen, "Rock-a-doodle-doo." There may have been some melding of Live action and animation or something... I can't remember it all. This clip seems to sum it up [link]

Love the Duel poster, by the way. Great flick and that poster really encapsulates it.

Those are actually pretty creative.

My first poster? "Dog Soldiers," signed by the producers. Still got it hanging.

Cool posters. I do like the idea of new concepts for old posters.

1st one was for The Simpsons Movie. Current one is a Watchmen Rorschach poster. Next one may be for one of the ones shown here, Mad Max 2 (The Road Warrior)
