  1. I used to collect movie posters. Not so much anymore. They kinda suck now. Thanks for making this.

  2. I admit, movie posters are pretty lame these days, however, I am familiar with a movie because of the trailers that are all over the internet and TV, not by it’s cover art. People don’t browse movie stores anymore looking for a movie that pops out to them. They see the trailers and they think “that looks good, I wanna see that!” Cover art was probably a good investment before the internet but I think the money is found in giving your audience a piece of the movie via trailers. This guy seems good with art but not so much with marketing.
