Adrian Curry: Best Movie Posters of 2012

An average year, according to Adrian Curry’s review of 2012, but with a few exceptions, like the the Czech-influenced, hand-drawn Elena poster by Sam Smith (who obviously had a fruitful year, creatively speaking — See How to Survive a Plague and also the link to the stunning year’s work on his blog). Go further and follow the link for Sam Smith’s inspiration, and his own favourite film posters.

The stark image of a girl carrying a bucket for The Turin Horse, has inspired three different designs for the US, Mexico and UK posters for the film. Each has its merits, but the festival poster for Ai Weiwei Never Sorry is superseded by the darker mood of the cinema poster by Kellerhouse — as with  Sam Smith, follow the link for more of this remarkable body of work.

You can compare Curry’s round-up to his previous reviews for 20112010 and 2009.
