I had a random idea for a lesson on visual close reading in my class next semester and I need to put together a bunch of movie posters in in a powerpoint to do it. So, question for everyone. What are your favorite movie posters. I’m looking for POSTERS that stick out in your mind, NOT movies. Something that calls attention to itself, is memorable to you and somehow tells a story with the picture. The story it tells DOESN’T necessarily have to be the story of the film. Lots of them are misleading. That is fine for this, and in fact even interesting. It also doesn’t have to be a good movie or one that most people have even seen. In fact, it might even be better if they’re films my students haven’t seen (but don’t limit yourselves)
I’ll also take comic book or album covers if you can think of something particularly interesting there.
So what do you have? (Just throw ideas at me… and if you have a link to the image that might be helpful too).
