Before we get into movie posters that do well without floating heads, let us state that sometimes this style of poster works well. A prime example is Infinity War and Endgame.
Moving along to a movie with so much potential with its first poster, we have Spider-Man: No Way Home. As one of the best Marvel movies to date, the poster design should have stepped it up a notch.
While we can’t stand the yellow tint, it works for the time period it came out in. The stylistic choice set it apart from many of the other movies at the time, and that’s all we can ask for.
When we saw the poster, it was a little disappointing. They used floating heads. And while it did show us the characters and the star-studded cast, it just missed the mark for us.
We don’t care how you feel about The Hunger Games movies, but you have to admit, they rarely missed with movie posters.
We wish today’s Hollywood would make posters like this again. This iconic franchise gave us some of the most fun movie posters that give you just a taste of the shenanigans that are in store for the audience.
When I think of iconic movie posters that show us what to expect without giving too much away, Jaws is the first one to come to mind. It’s simple and effective in ways that modern movie posters just can’t seem to manage these days.
