The Best Movie Posters of 2014


Adrian Curry, on his excellent blog about movie posters, has placed this poster for the indie comedy “Frank” at the top of his list of 2014’s best movie posters. It’s a good choice, but his selection for the number two slot is bewildering to me.


This is the U.K. poster for the British band Pulp’s documentary “Pulp: A Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets.” It’s passable, but perhaps because the central band photo is so familiar to me from following Pulp since the 1990s, it comes off as unremarkable, even lazy. Meanwhile, a far superior poster was issued for the same film’s U.S. release (which I wrote about here):
