After Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hit theaters, fans were willing to make concessions for a wizarding world movie that was never going to be as good as the Harry Potter franchise. They were even willing to wait for the second chapter in the franchise to deliver on the potential promised by what was meant to be the first of five total films.

Spoilers for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald follow.

Now that we’re officially in 2019, the /Film team wanted to take a look back at the year in film that was 2018, and that includes some of the best marketing we saw. Often times, even before a trailer arrives online, we’ll see a poster announcing the arrival of any given movie. And while most posters are forgettable and lack any remarkable style, movie posters are still very much an artform, and a lot of studios know how to do them right. That’s why yours truly took the time to round up what I have deemed the 20 Best Movie Posters of 2018. Read More »
