Recycling is good for the environment, but the story is not the same when it comes to film covers. Now I don’t want to make it seem that I’m completely bashing this industry, believe me I love well made movies, however I feel like pushing the creativity needs to be the goal for every film. Subconsciously we don’t notice that some of the newly released film covers look more than a little familiar.
Christophe Courtois has managed to catch the elephant in the room using a visual manner. He made a compact collection of movie posters and put them together according to their genre. If you were to look back at posters from 50 years ago, you would happen to find cool and creative film covers. Some movies stray away from copy and pasting, while others chase currency.
Today we will try to prove our point of view using the images below. We compiled a nice collection of niche based movie covers. You will all see what Chris tried to show in one glance. Before leaving, we would love for you to share your opinion on this topic in the comment section. Enjoy!
