And rightly so. They are fascinating and surreal masterpieces. You should check out the links I've provided and give them a look.
But I must say, my foreign poster allegiance remains with the Japanese.
From this classic image for The Hidden Fortress...
To this King Kong vs. Godzilla delight.
Just look at the action. You can't tell me you don't want to see that movie more than you did five minutes ago, unless you want me to be sure there's something wrong with you.
Frankly, even the posters that just use an American poster as the basis, and, as I don't like 90% of American movie posters these days, I find them less exciting. But they find a way to even make those more interesting. The way the lettering always crosses the images, like violent graffiti thrashing out to tell you the information, even if you, like I, can't read them.
And, yes, I have a special place in my heart for the Pinky Violence posters, such as this one for Girl Boss Guerilla.
Or this one for Terrifying Girl's High School: Lynch Law Classroom.
It's not even just the nudity and the violence. It's the attitude!
