We’ve come a long way since the first silent movies of over one hundred years ago. Advertisers and film studios are still trying to find new ways to attract audiences to see their latest movies. The movie poster has long been a classic example of the evolving times in advertising and design. With amazing illustration, bold typography and awesome photography manipulations these posters have them all, and below we have a huge collection of posters from the last 100 years to feast your eyes on. Enjoy!
