25 Imaginative Illustrations Inspired By Film

For the most part, being both a film geek and design geek are two completely separate interests of mine that rarely coexist.  Occasionally I’ll be enticed by a great poster design, or appreciate the font choice in a title sequence – but usually the two worlds never collide.

However, lately I’ve noticed a trend of artists and designers paying homage to their favorite films in their own creative way.  Whether it be the re-imagining of a film’s poster or the designing of a cover for a film’s novelization; I simply can’t get enough of this stuff.

It is in admiration of this movement that I’ve hand picked my favorite 25 Imaginative Illustrations Inspired By Film. Hope you like them.

  27. Looks very antique. That is the most amazing feeling of all seeing all these images.

  28. Great blog! I love the ones done by Olly Moss!

    This is quiet a good one of blade runner! I like the way it hints at the robotic theme!


  29. The Charles Chaplin one one is Flawless.

    keep up the good work.

  32. absolutely amazing, i pine for posters like these

  33. These are excellent!

  34. They should be on Louvre

  35. I like a few of them like the fight club poster, but a number of them just don’t feel like illustrations to me like the ghostbusters one for instance. It just feels like a graphic designer needed to fill the space but didn’t have time to do or get an illustration so they just made a few shapes that resemble something from the movie.

    Just could have done so much more with it in my opinion I guess.

  36. Great compilation!! I love this blog! Congrats… I’m from Caracas btw 🙂

  37. Wow Andrew, this post is great, you did your research. Keep them coming.

  38. Rain Man, Die Hard, and Groundhog Day posters were very smart!

  42. I love how Ghostbusters is starring Ernie Hudson….? I didnt know he was such a huge star?

  43. The Die Hard poster has to be my favorite. I vivdly remember the scene where he takes his shoes off to scratch his toe in the bathroom. Then those terrorists realize it and shoot all of the glass. The scene made me feel nautious as hed ahd to pull the glass shards from his toes. OUCH!
