Most Iconic Movie Posters

Surely you can’t be serious.

Pretty much the first ten I thought of have all been named.

The 1989 Batman poster was a huge hit.

AlsoFull Metal Jacket


Seriously, you can’t be Shirley.

One Million Years B.C. -
Invasion of the Saucer-Men -

Alphaville* -

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1955)

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)

Attack of the 50 foot Woman

Queen of Outer Space

Pink Flamingos

Pulp Fiction

***Jaws ***is the most iconic poster I can think of. It really stands out.

**One Million Years B.C. **is a great one though as far as recognition.

The Graduate

That woman is clearly waaaay taller than 50 feet!

I’d say Home Alone is fairly iconic since it was parodied a lot.

Animal House.

It’s Alive

A lot of the ones already mentioned were done by John Alvin; I’m friends with his daughter. I’m still blown away by the fact that that’s her hand in the E.T. poster! The one where she’s touching E.T.'s finger and it’s glowing; he used his daughter (I think she was 5 at the time) as the model.

He passed away relatively recently and her mom (Alvin’s wife) released a book of his artwork. It proudly sits on my coffee table; I highly recommend it!

None of the Polish movie posters.


The Rocketeer


The Outlaw

ETA: Well played, Pepperwinkle


One of the best Holocaust movies made.

I don’t know how iconic it is, but this poster for The Miracle Worker is one of my favorites, especially after having seen the movie.

For Your Eyes Only was not a particularly memorable movie, but the poster is a classic.

I think BACK TO THE FUTURE managed it.

The Close Encounters mesa poster. Not so much the highway one.

And who doesn’t know the Rocky Horror lips?

American Graffiti.
