The Exceptional Movie Posters of 2016

By

The art of movie poster design deserves more recognition. It seems like Hollywood never gets tired of regurgitating the same floating-heads, random vignetted montage bullshit. Thankfully, there are projects out there that understand the importance of a poster which can distill the essence of a movie into a visually striking image. Below are some of our favorites from the year, ranging from the highly illustrated to the minimalistic and more.
