Movie posters are supposed to be a reflect about what the movie is it about. However, their goal is also to attract spectators, so sometimes graphic designers just go a bit too far on the conception of those posters. It would be nice if those pictures actually told us the truth so we can judge by ourselves if we would like to spend money on watching those films.
British magazine The Shiznit has done us this favour and has created a collection of 15 posters of what posters should really tell, in a preview of this year’s Oscars. Finally I know which films I want to see and which ones I am going to avoid for sure, even if they have a pretty design !
