    I love the typography of "6 rules of modern poster....".
    what font is it?
  • hthbrr2 3y

    So true. Sick and tired of the same boring designs! At one point there were two movies out that had the same poster I assumed it was the same movie! Wish people would get more creative *sigh*

    Referred here by a friend. I think we had the same idea:

    Been a while since I printed out something to hang in my cube, but this is great. I work with reformatting movie poster art all the time and I started rattling off the movies that fit into each of these categories.. Wedding Crashers, American Pie, The Bounty Hunter, any Katherine Heigel movie, Unstoppable... Well done Dr. Monster.

    I would add an amendment that most by-the-numbers action thriller posters tend to have the protagonist holding a pistol: either aiming out towards the viewer or held pointing up as if they're about to clear a roomful of terrorists.

    Great work fella.

    The awful truth brilliantly illustrated. But what is pohotoshop?
