Midlands Movies Feature - 25 of the Best Alternative Movie Posters

By midlandsmovies, Feb 7 2016 03:02PM

After my original post about the hugely popular expansion in independent film poster art I have been discovering even more beautiful poster designs from artists from all over the world in 2015/16. From qualified experts to recreational amateurs, I love to see alternate takes on posters which have sadly still not moved far from the hell that is bad PhotoShop.
