October 12, 2009

From Attack of the Killer Tomatoes to Zardoz, the 1970's were not only home to some of the craziest titles in film, but some of the most interesting movie posters.

The 70's were also home to some of the more psychedelic and funky designs for movie posters that more recent directors, most notably Quentin Tarantino, have drawn on as inspiration for their own movie poster designs.

In the days before the internet, a movie poster was much more important in the marketing mix for a movie than it is today. It was the historical equivalent to the movie trailer, and as such graphic artists had to pack a lot of message into one image.

Let's go back in time with a collection of over 70 movie posters from the 70's that are funky fresh. Enjoy... (to improve page loading, we split the collection into two pages).
