Best Movie Posters Designs of 2014

Each year IMP Awards picks out the best movie posters post on their design, and how it relates to the message and elements of the film.  Here are some that have stood out against the pack.  Do you agree to their choices?

Genre: Best Action Movie poster

Winner- The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
You can see from the poster Smaug’s destructive power and his evil grin but the lone archer is not afraid to stand its way, and the clamness behind him created a great contrast before the two.


Honorable mention

The Amazing Spiderman 2

Best Drama Movie Poster

Winner – Birdman
At first glance it seems to be very simple, but Keaton flowing off the ground makes viewers wonder what it is look at. Also you can see the other characters in the posters nearby are all staring at him while actual pedestrians do not even notice him. Which goes well with the theme of the film itself, “The unexpected virtue of ignorance”


Honorable Mentions

Fury – War Never Ends Quietly


Gone Girl


Best Teaser Poster

Winner – Interstellar “Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.”

Beginning from a farm house in the film’s quiet beginning, it went big launching into space as the poster has shown like a rocket firing up from ground up.


Honorable mention

X-Men – Days of Future Past
It is smart how it fuses together the young and old Magneto together to tell the story of the film title just by looking at the poster

What shows more than legos being assemble on the poster?

This TV poster reminds the viewer of the original Fargo movie with its red color and the hand stitched style

Other posters had some great marketing ideas that made you think and smile.
