25 Stunning Alternate Movie Posters

A semi-recent trend to pop up in the geek-ridden terrain of the internet movie blog is that of the alternate movie poster: basically, an amateurly produced piece of artwork intended to pose as marketing material for a full-length feature. Effectively kick-started by the sublime works of Austin-based company Mondo, the trend has ultimately stretched to the four corners of the earth, with movie-loving artists the world over designing and presenting their very own alternative posters to the ones displayed at one time or another inside a theatre near you.

Ranging from the clever to the ingenious, the simple to the intricate, the classic to the contemporary, and the funny to the utterly spell-binding, alternate movie posters really can prove that sometimes an amateur’s work can be better than a professional’s, as you shall see in the 25 stunning examples assembled below.

    Glad to see journalism fall further and further away from the web…how about ONE citation, or credit of an artist…

    Any idea where I can purchase some of these posters from? Where I might start looking? Cheers

    Sam, above every single poster featured on this page is a credit to either the artist or the company that produced the artwork. Did you not spot this?
