The 20 Best Movie Posters of 2018


6. Halloween

It’s hard to make a good Halloween poster without relying on the imagery of Michael Myers, but this Korean poster for the sequel does an incredible job by using quotes praising the movie in a unique way. The lines of text with acclaim act as text blood splatters coming from Michael Myers stabbing one of his victims. It’s dark but very slick.


5. BlacKkKlansman

It should come as no surprise that the image of a black man wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood is going to get some attention. But it’s the addition of the black power salute and the hair pick that makes it even better.

The Front Runner

4. The Front Runner

This poster tells you everything you need to know about the movie. The presidential campaign of Gary Hary in 1988 went off a cliff when the press started digging into his personal life and uncovered an affair, the first gossip story of its kind in modern politics, and it would change the game forever. The poster tells us all of that. We don’t even need to see the trailer. That’s a great poster.


3. Skyscraper

Another thing I love is when movie posters pay tribute to posters of the past. In this case, Skyscraper is taking a cue from movies like The Towering Inferno, and it even has fake wrinkles and folds like it’s been stored somewhere for years. Even the image of the fiery skyscraper itself has been given a legit illustration. That’s just great.


2. Mandy

It’s not often you see a combination of red, pink, fuchsia and other similar colors on a movie poster unless it’s for some kind of romantic comedy, but Mandy is nothing like that. Instead, these colors are all over the movie, more often than not in a menacing way, and this poster perfectly captures the wild nature of the movie, complete with a badass-looking Nicolas Cage right in the middle.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

1. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Finally, this Chinese poster for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, focuses more on the creatures than the movie does, and it’s better than the film in every conceivable way. It’s bright, colorful, and it contains some truly gorgeous artwork. It’s a shame the movie couldn’t be more like this single image. It might have actually been decent.
