Making a Persuasive Film Poster

Mentee

People choose to watch movies when they become intrigued by the film posters. Just as how book covers catch a reader's curiosity, movie posters have a role in gathering the public's eye. Is it better to be straightforward when making a poster or be more abstract about it?

I would say it depends on the movie itself. Abstract movies should have posters that have abstract art. Realism.......the same thing. This would be a true "reflection" between poster and movie.

I remember going to the movies as a youngster, and choosing which one to see based solely on the posters they had behind the glass by the front doors.

Those were the days.

And so many of them were misleading, but I'd fall for it every single time. I'd like to think that I've wised up to the game, but movie trailers draw me in now.
