Movie posters are a very versatile part of the film experience, this is because they do so much more than simply inform potential
viewers about a specific film, but they are also a great way of expressing your interests and cinematic tastes. Film posters have to ensure that they grab peoples' attention as soon as they see them,
which means that a bold image and text is key to success.
