Movies are part of the human lifestyle. Some of them oftentimes dictates what's the next big thing in other aspects of living - whether in fashion, gaming, business, pop culture, etc. Successful movies are mostly a combination of great plot, impressive visual effects, a well known director and a smashing casting. Popular trends today are movie adaptations of best-selling novels (e.g., "Twilight Saga" of Stephanie Meyer, "Harry Potter" of J.K. Rowling), comic books (e.g., Marvel's "The Avengers" and DC's "The Dark Knight" ), classic movie remakes (e.g., "Mirror Mirror" from Disney's Snow White, "Tangled" from Rapunzel) and some original stories like "Brave" and "Avatar".
As an avid moviegoer, one major element that convinces me to watch such movie is the official movie poster. Of course a 3 minute trailer is not enough to attract a huge number of viewers to go to the theaters. A well designed movie poster plays a very important role in adding the overall excitement to upcoming movies.
Movie posters has been evolving through time. We have our own personal favorites and even get copies to be displayed in our bedrooms. Who would not remember the epic poster of Spider-Man 3 or the historic face-off moment in the Harry Potter 7 part 2 movie poster.

Yes Pia, I agree. Tim Burton movies got the best posters for me. The version of "Alice in Wonderland" poster with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter is my personal favorite in terms of design. The colors used especially the strong green background speaks the most of the character. The font design of the title and credits were perfect for the theme of the movie.
I'm also a great fan of Harry Potter and I think the poster of the last movie was the best! There are a lot of cool movie posters that I like but here's three of my most favorite:
I haven't watched this yet but this poster is really gorgeous!
The Da Vinci Code movie poster is as intriguing as the movie itself. I simply love the design. It seems that the poster is trying to tell something that you have to figure out by watching the movie.
