Movie-PostersA movie poster is pretty important part of every movie. Today, when everyone is watching trailers, a movie poster probably doesn't affect it's success too much, but in past, the poster was one of the most important ways of telling others about your movie.

When there was no Internet and YouTube, people couldn't sit and watch trailers, and trailers weren't so popular on TV too. This was the reasons why such attention was given to posters. For example, Pablo Picasso was hired to create a poster for a Yugoslav movie "The Battle of Neretva".

In these times, poster needed to be a work of art in order to attract the attention of public. Here we have collected some of such posters which were made some four or five decades ago.
