50 Incredible Film Posters from Poland

I LOVE film posters, good ones at least. It’s an art in itself, and no one does it quite as well as the Poles. Someone painstakingly chose the 50 best HERE

It was a tough choice, but here are my five favourites:

One obvious omission is probably my all time favourite poster for The Birds

  1. I’ll never look at Tootsie or Harry and the Hendersons the same again πŸ˜• . and wtf is up with the Days of Heaven one? πŸ˜†

    so being Polish is like being perpetually stuck in an Escher painting? πŸ˜› still, fascinating ad strategy, at least if it doesn’t scare away moviegoers at least.

  2. I initially remember reading some time back that poster making was one of the few industry not controlled by the Soviets during their occupation of Poland, therefore, as an artist it was the most subversive and “freeing” medium to work with which explains the strange-ness and disturbing content of so many of them. I wonder though, how much information about the films they were given before making the posters, a synopsis? Did they watch the films first? It’s all so very fascinating.
