Movie Posters Re-imagined for Another Time and Place

Movie posters are an artform all by themselves.

Like movie trailers, they have seemed to have lost their way. Old movie posters were works for art that provided both form and feeling to a film’s story and while they sometimes still played on our celebrity obsessions, they provided us with something that was well more than the sum of their parts.

Well, today I’ve found the solution to this problem!

Imagine if modern movies were reconfigured with that classic sensibility and vintage stars! The result is EPIC.

  • The Fifth Element 2 of 18
    The Fifth Element
    One of my favorite Sci-Fi genre films. Sean Connery? YOU BET!
  • Avatar 3 of 18

    I would watch William Shatner with or without blue face paint.
  • Superman 4 of 18
    Superman
    John Wayne was pretty much Superman already to a few generations. This is like a bunny hop in terms of casting.
  • Terminator II 5 of 18
    Terminator II
    Danny Bonaduce and Edward Furlong could learn a lot from each other. That's all I'll say.
  • Die Hard 6 of 18
    Die Hard
    I can't quite hear Leonard saying, "Yipeeekayyyayyyyy" but I just want this see this so I can feel like I live in an alternate universe.
  • Trainspotting 7 of 18
    Trainspotting
    Perfect.
  • Unbreakable 8 of 18
    Unbreakable
    I actually really liked this movie. Paul Newman could've brought his understated suaveness to this in a way, I think, would've been even better than Bruce Willis.
  • Pulp Fiction 9 of 18
    Pulp Fiction
    Yes. Yes. Yes. Harry Belafonte doing the cheeseburger eating and biblical references? YES.
  • 2001 10 of 18
    2001
    Everything would've been so modular and cool. I'm in.
  • The Big Lebowski 11 of 18
    The Big Lebowski
    I'm pretty sure these three musicians already did this in real life.
  • Drive 12 of 18
    Drive
    Ryan Gosling is our modern day James Dean. There I said it.
  • For Special Services 13 of 18
    For Special Services
    Mick Jagger, for all we know, WAS a secret agent. At least all the women he knew were actually named characters from Bond in real life. I'm sure.
  • Groundhog Day 14 of 18
    Groundhog Day
    This just makes me so happy. Peter Sellers would've been insane, living day after day in the same way.
  • The Terminator 15 of 18
    The Terminator
    Alright. I can get down with Steve McQueen in this part. But Richard Kiel is what seals it for me.
  • Rushmore 16 of 18
    Rushmore
    Yep. 1000x yep.
  • Inception 17 of 18
    Inception
    Burt Lancaster is WAY better casting than Cillian Murphy. Though, Cillian and I go way back.
  • The Hangover 18 of 18
    The Hangover
    I mean, a baby Tom Cruise? Martin & Lewis? SO MUCH RAD THAT I'M EXPLODING.
