Adrian Curry: Best Film Posters for 2011

Some great images in Adrian Curry’s review of 2011, especially the beguiling Uncle Boonmee poster by Chris Ware.

The Yves Saint-Laurent documentary L’Amour Fou is graced by Michael Boland’s hand-lettered title for the US poster and the main subject is all the stronger for the revised composition (see the original French design).

Designer Jeremy Saunders gives an insight into his inspiration for Burning Man, and the resulting teaser poster — by comparison, the revised design for the release poster betrays a loss of nerve.

You can compare Curry’s round-up to his previous reviews for 2010 and 2009. To see more artwork by the Illustrator Michael Gillette, follow the link to his celebrated Bond girl book covers for Penguin.

    What a good idea for a post! I love the Eames poster – great use of type – and We bought a zoo.
