The Breakout Hit Of The Season

Designer and Illustrator - Dr. Monster- shows us how to make a modern movie poster. Maybe you'd like to see one of his posters? Or a happy scooter? Or a motivational poster? Or just a dapper looking Tesla with a Tesla Cannon?

So true. Once you learn to see the clichés of movie posters, you can't unsee them. I also love his all around style too though, but it does make me think we need a modern day Tesla, maybe one who will invent hyperspace drives or something. ;)

I would say that scooter looks more alarmed than happy.

Totally love the Tesla.

While we're pointing out cliches, isn't re-imagined comic book Tesla a bit overdone? (Atomic Robo, 5 Fists of Science, etc.)

Font Feed has a running series of posts critiquing movie posters. He has gone much further in depth pointing out modern cliches, often showing copy cat posters side by side by side.
