The movie industry is one of the oldest enterprises and it still thrives today. People are still as excited to see movies as they have ever been. Millions still flock to the theaters, some even waiting in line at midnight. To make sure that people are still anticipating and excited to see their upcoming movie, posters have become the most important marketing tool for movie producers and studios.
Movie posters have a lot of features that are comparable to web design. They consist of a combination of different elements made to look visually appealing, which defines a successful poster. We see trends and elements such as minimalism, retro effects, illustration, fonts and vectors. Most posters apply some sort of photo manipulation to add emphasis and be more attractive to the audience.
These movie posters are a teaser to what the movie is about. Even if the movie is bad, movie posters can effect whether people want to go watch the movie, since the audience are only judging the movie based on the poster. The year 2012 has been filled with superb posters for movies that have been released and those that are still to be released such as The Hobbit, MIB 3 etc.

I believe that film industries other than Hollywood also bring amazing and creative movie posters. The compilation consists of movie posters from diverse locations such as North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

As you can see from this collection, it includes a variety of posters from all over the world. I believe not all inspiration has to come from "good and happy" things. I included dark posters such as a child pointing a gun because it gives a dark message that makes the poster stand out because of its ability to automatically draw attention towards the poster which is the main purpose of movie posters. Movie posters are supposed to draw the attention of the audience and leave a lasting impression so people remember what the movie is.
