Amy’s Ten Highlights of 2010 Movie Posters
3. I Am Love
Love that the poster, by The Refinery Creative, with the original Italian title Io Sono l’Amore also has the English title in beautiful lettering all over the place covering everyone’s face but goes behind the fabulous Tilda Swinton.
I really thought I Am Love was kind of pretentious telenovela melodrama, though. However, it was wonderful to see Swinton speaking Italian… a bit unnatural. Does anyone know how her Russian was?
2. Rabbit Hole
When the first poster for Rabbit Hole came out, I felt it was really well made… sad, but at the same time quite light with all that open space. However, when this poster, done by Ignition Print… again LOL, with the photo divides came out, the concept was striking. Especially considering the film, it really ties in with the concept of the “rabbit hole” dealt with in the story.
It also has a better tagline than the kinda cheesy “Love will get you through.” of that first poster. xD
1. Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work
Finally, my fave of the bunch of course is the poster for the documentary Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work because… come on! Look at that gorgeous typographic goodness! And I hate pink! You wouldn’t know because there’s so much hot pink on the sites, but I love the vibrancy of pink in design. And it’s also by Kellerhouse, Inc.
Love that simple illustration of Joan’s face, and how the titles and credits seem to be bubble text coming out of her mouth. It would certainly catch my eye in the busiest theater.
So what did you think the best posters are? It seems Ignition Print has a lot of entries — from the striking posters for Rabbit Hole, to Scott Pilgrim, all the way to the Inception posters, and From Paris with Love. They’ve got such a broad variety of films…
