Movie posters not only hint at the storyline of the film – it also gives the studio a chance to get creative. From illustration to photography, 3D art to clever typography placement, here we’ve picked out 16 of our favourite movie posters of 2016 that thought outside of the box.

1. Moonlight

The poster for ‘Moonlight’ is so aesthetically beautiful in its simplicity and subtle placements showcase an incredibly clever execution. Depicting three chapters of one man’s life, the photography of each stage is teamed with a subtle change in colour, showcasing a difference but still allowing the viewer to realise that it’s the same person. The neon typography compliments the design perfectly.

2. The Neon Demon

The art direction for ‘The Neon Demon’ was flawless; like it’s name, the neon used throughout each poster design was devilishly inspiring and evoked a sense of threat throughout the execution. By highlighting the dripping liquid – and using only grey for the background – the danger is heightened by suggesting blood and murder.

3. The Handmaiden

A Korean masterpiece, the poster is a gorgeously detailed vision of the traditional aspect of the culture’s art history whilst also keeping things unique. The small characters juxtapose the beauty that the illustration executes – they are beautiful too but their situations tell a tale that is undeniably catastrophic.

4. The Forest

The use of negative space in poster design will almost always provide a clever and encompassing execution. By designing the forest to take over the actor’s face, it gives a harrowing sense of her inability to escape her fate. The disappearance of her mouth also showcases an inability to scream, perfectly depicting the horror-like stance of the film.

5. Christine

Depicting the harrowing story of Christine Chubbuck, a 1970s TV reporter struggling with depression, this clever poster showcases how Chubbuck had to confront her demons in front of a televised audience. Through simple but powerful imagery, it tells us that Chubbuck is unable to escape from the constraints of her career that ultimately destroy her. The colours and framing also give a nice 1970s feel.
