There’s always something magical about movie posters, as they can often tell a great story without the need for special effects and cutting-edge surround sound. These are works of art that perfectly blend with the best marketing tactics to date, making you stare at them like you simply have nothing better to do. Speaking of which, let’s take a long and very hard look at some of the most breathtaking movie posters of 2015.
Best Movie Posters 2015
The movie might have tanked with critics, but the promotional poster is beautifully rendered nonetheless. Although a bit stereotypical, this is actually a good thing in this case: You have the inevitable blue laser, flying spaceships and the protagonist looking over a post-apocalyptic setting like he owns the place. All in all, this is the kind of poster that makes you want to watch the movie regardless of its production values.
The Ant-Man movie poster has ‘geeky’ written all over it, which gives all the more reason to aura-print it and frame it on your wall for years to come. Best of all, it conveys Henry Pym’s powers perfectly without the help of a written word. From the fading images behind the character to the fact that he’s riding an ant, you can clearly get the picture while simultaneously admiring everything about its artistic attributes.
The world has turned upside down for main characters Tris and Four, and this jaw-dropping, fantastically digitized poster explains it quite elegantly. Set in a corrupt and futuristic Chicago, you can clearly see the many obstacles and gunfights that will ensue in this upcoming action film. The saying is undoubtedly true: A picture really is worth a thousand words.
Different worlds, universe exploration and small, yet devastating guns make this an extraordinary movie poster. Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis are set to oversee and protect the cosmos, and the small glimpses we get from this artistic picture only makes us want to watch the movie that much more.
Jurassic World prides itself in teasing you with a simplistic, but self-explanatory poster. Forget all the fancy graphics and modern color palette; this image delivers a powerful punch due to its minimalist nature that still conveys everything you’ve come to love about the franchise. Due to its instantly-recognizable features, this makes for one of the best movie posters of 2015 and beyond.
The art work portrayed for this movie spells nothing but chaos and disaster, and we mean that as a compliment. How will the main character locate his daughter in a city that is completely destroyed following a devastating earthquake? What can he do to ensure that he doesn’t become a victim as well? These are the type of exhilarating questions that this amazing movie poster brings to mind – and for that, we are grateful.
Star Wars: Episode VII
Even a non-Star Wars fan can immediately recognize (and admire) a poster from this iconic franchise. These have always been about space battles, alien conflicts and beautifully-colored lightsabers, and the latest Star Wars: Episode VII movie poster does not disappoint. Let’s face it: Once you take a good look, you can only come to the natural conclusion that this is one of the best movie posters of 2015 to date.
Avengers: Age of Ultron
It was difficult to pick among the several available posters for Avengers: Age of Ultron. The movie’s villain is clearly the main attraction this time around, showing his confidence with a calm, hollier-than-thou demeanor. The poster and the movie’s premise truly make you wonder why so many skilled warriors are needed to stop one single enemy. We can’t wait to see much more, and it’s mainly due to such promotional images.

Horror movies are not my thing, although I have been foraying into the genre in the past months. I’ve taken things slowly, starting TV shows that give me the creeps. Then I was caught aback with The Conjuring. There’s one thing in common during all those times I spend watching horror movies/TV shows: I have learned to look for signs that I need to avert my eyes, thanks to the score and to the facial expressions of my fellow viewers.
For those of you like me, then I am warning you from the get go: these movie posters are some of the scariest out there. Just putting this post together drained me. Scariest movie posters indeed.
For lovers of the horror genre, you’ve probably seen these posters, but they will take you down memory lane at the very least. Else, they will stoke your appetite for Halloween movie watching.
So here you go, some of the scariest movie posters. Go ahead. I dare you.
Alice Sweet Alice – a young girl is murdered after her communion. You can guess how things go downhill from there.
Body Snatchers (1993) – alien clones replacing humans in a U.S. military base; the stuff alien conspiracy theorists love to death.
Children of the Damned – the tagline “Beware of the eyes that paralyze!” just makes the poster worse. Much worse.
Dawn of the Dead (1978) – there are other versions of the movie poster, but this one just makes me want to run and hide from the zombies; written and directed by George Romero, you know it’s a must-watch (but not for me yet).
Excision – think about a girl who fantasizes about “performing surgery” on other girls at school…and the poster, good Lord, it’s enough to make me say a prayer!
Fright Night (1985) – vampire stories, I usually can take; but this movie poster is something else.
Grace – how does a baby feeding bottle with blood sound to you?
Night of the Lepus (1972) – the movie may have been a flop, but the poster is terrifying, not in the least because of the expression on the girl’s face.
Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) – I think everyone has seen this movie, and the poster certainly will give you nightmares.
One Missed Call (2008) – this poster will force me to NOT miss a call even if I don’t recognize the number.
Possession – how about a Medusa-like figure that’s just totally creepy?
Pulse (2006) – though the story is a mix of tech and evil, the poster is just pure scary sh#t.
A Tale of Two Sisters (2003) – a Korean film that revolves around a family that goes through hell, probably literally; and the poster is as creepy as can be.
The Shining – a classic with Jack Nicholson as the star, this is one of the movies I tried to watch but didn’t finish.
Turistas – it’s the usual vacation horror story, and the poster gives you a high expectation of the scary level of the movie.
More horror for you:
The World Cup is upon us, and while some couldn’t care less, Italian designers Benedetto Papi and Edoardo Santamato have taken it upon themselves to mesh together cult movie posters and the World Cup. There are official World Cup posters, of course, but I dare say these are more interesting.
That’s just a taste, there’s more here.

No doubt about it, not everyone can design movie posters that will forever be remembered.
