Book Review: Alternative Movie Posters II by Matthew Chojnacki

  These alternative posters are wonderful. 

And hearing the story behind each one – and behind the artists – is fascinating. 

I would love to see movie posters go back in this direction. Instead of (as the book constantly refers to) the photoshopped head shots. Yes, we can be more creative than that. And this book proves it. 

It’s also interesting to see the different types of media (mediums?) that the artists employ. These give a whole new dimension to this art. 

My favorite may be Keith Ten Eyck’s It poster. While I didn’t love the made-for-TV movie, the book is dear to my heart as my first King novel. Plus, it’s awesome.  

I also love Tim Anderson’s The Incredibles and The Matrix posters. 

Matt Ferguson’s Guardians of the Galaxy, as an homage to the Star Wars poster is excellent. 

Adam Sidwell’s Fight Club posters make me want to see the movie again. (His name is Robert Paulson.)

Several of these will be my iPad background in the coming months. 

Recommended if you’re into art or movies. 

Thanks to NetGalley and Schiffer Publishing for a copy in return for an honest review.
