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.
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”
Fury – War Never Ends Quietly
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.
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
The Lego Movie
What shows more than legos being assemble on the poster?
Best TV Poster
Winner – Fargo
This TV poster reminds the viewer of the original Fargo movie with its red color and the hand stitched style

I know it is a cat, and it is cute, but really!?! it is no fault of the cat though.
The Signal – “R U Agitated?”
Who will want to go to a movie because of that?
The Sparks Men never kissed award
It has been a trend for all the Nicholas Sparks movies that the men can’t kiss the girl in the poster, they almost did, but not quite. Just like Safe Haven, The Lucky One, Nights in Rodanthe, and The Notebook
Other posters had some great marketing ideas that made you think and smile.
Bad Words – what word are they referring to?
