The first teaser for David Cronenberg's return to body horror. Released by NEON.


Laurent Lufroy

Elegantly references the split screen format of the film. Gaspar Noé hand signed 20 one sheets for us, each with a unique signature, gave us an exclusive look at his incredible movie poster collection, and had a blast with us and our friends at Utopia at our opening reception for Vortex. Released by Utopia.

Lux Aeterna

Laurent Lufroy

Psychedelic stained glass iconography f/ Gaspar Noé's Saint Laurent-produced meta-film, partly inspired by Pasolini's La Ricotta. These designs were created in 2020 for the French theatrical release but the film saw its first U.S. release this year. Released by Yellow Veil.

Riotsville U.S.A. / The Novelist's Film / Introduction / In Front of Your Face / A Night of Knowing Nothing

Brian Hung

I'm a huge fan of of Cinema Guild's in-house designer Brian Hung. The NFL is a fan too. Read Adrian Curry's MUBI interview with Brian Hung.

We're All Going to the World's Fair / The Act of Coming Out

Caspar Newbolt

I'm always happy to see a new movie poster by Caspar Newbolt on the TL, it's sure to be something totally unexpected that eschews current design trends, and these two are no exception. And I love that his inspo for The Act of Coming Out was Waldemar Świerzy's Polish poster for Blow Up. Read Adrian Curry's MUBI interview with Caspar. We're All Going to the World's Fair released by Utopia.

The Batman The Batman

The Batman

Akiko Stehrenberger

Akiko Stehrenberger's ingeniously executed optical illusion f/ Mondo, right side up it's the Batman, turn it upside down and it's the Riddler. Check out our Akiko Stehrenberger capsule collection and pics from our opening reception.

Festival poster f/ Jerzy Skolimowski's Cannes Jury Prize winner and the film topping many critic's year end lists. Released by Sideshow and Janus Films. Just gonna leave this here

Another excellent poster for a Utopia film, designed by Mike McQuade.

Tár Tár


Desi Moore / AV Print

My most anticipated release of the year had a marketing campaign Lydia Tár would've approved of. Even the teaser trailer deserves an Oscar. Watch Todd Field and Cate Blanchett visit the Criterion closet. Cinemark poster by Desi Moore and official one sheet by AV Print. Released by Focus Features.

Decision to Leave

MUBI / Intermission / Nicolas Ortega / Empire Design
