I’ve mentioned before how sad it is that the movie poster, which was once an art form, has become incredibly cookie cutter. Just look at Gravity. The two main posters are tight shots of Sandra Bullock or George Clooney’s helmeted faces. That’s it. For a film that’s visually breathtaking, how can you have a poster a five-year-old could design? If you haven’t, take a look at the Fan Made Gravity Poster Gallery that we posted a few weeks ago. These are talented people who should be the ones putting together one of the most important pieces of the film’s visual legacy.
Since the announcement of the sequel trilogy, fan made posters have been hitting the Internet like crazy. They’ve been brilliant! We’ve posted a slew of them here and if you’re looking for the best place to find a collection of them on the net, try http://www.episode7art.com which has a gigantic collection of posters and wallpapers. Here are my five favorite and, because there are too many awesome ones to not share more, an honorable mention gallery of greats. I pity the person who has to follow these talented people. They’ve made the anticipation of the next installment all the more fun (plus my desktop has never looked so good).
