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.

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”

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.

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
