The Posters of the Decade

Having covered the best trailers of the decade, it's time to take a look at that other important marketing tool: the poster. Again, the vast majority of posters released are lazily produced, relying on big close-ups of the stars' faces and a few gushing quotes, but some are memorable works of art in their own right. Here are ten that stood out for me over the past ten years.

10 – Irreversible (2002)


9 – The Dark Knight (2008)


8 – AI: Artificial Intelligence (2001)

7 – Perfume: the Story of a Murderer (2006)

6 – Man on Wire (2008)


5 – Lord of War (2005)

4 – Bamboozled (2000)

3 – In the Mood for Love (2001)

2 – Funny Games US (2007)

1 – Walk the Line (2005)
