Poster Art: Contagion

Every Friday is Poster Art Appreciation Day here on RWW. Today it’s…

CONTAGION: Directed by Steven Soderbergh and starring Matt Damon, Kate Winslet and Jude Law.

I chose this poster because of the way it gets the message of the movie across. Working with the title itself, the poster composition tells you exactly what kind of movie to expect without actually using a scene from the movie.

I think a lot of modern posters rely too heavily on the image of the actors, so it’s always refreshing to see someone try something different. In this case it really works well.

Poster Art: Source Code

Every Friday is Poster Art Appreciation Day here on RWW. Today it’s…

SOURCE CODE: Directed by Duncan Jones and starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan and Vera Farmiga.

I love the composition of this poster. The way they turn the shadow into the arms of the clock – the body of the clock is railroad tracks – it gives you a complete picture of what to expect with one image – which is, of course, the point of a poster.

Yes – it’s another Olly Moss poster. I didn’t know it until after I had selected it. Apparently I just gravitate towards the was Moss interprets films.

Movie Poster Art:
MOON

I like movie posters almost as much as I like the movies themselves.

MOON  РDirected by Duncan Jones, Staring Sam Rockwell (robbed of an Oscar nomination for his performance) and a brilliant score by Clint Mansell Рis one of my favorite sci-fi films of the last decade.

As such, I was beyond excited to come across this Ollie Moss alternate poster for the film.

Enjoy!
