How great would this have been?
Today I’d like to celebrate the genius of Olly Moss, artist. I’ve been enjoying the work of Moss through Empire Magazine, for whom he creates the most amazing alternate movie posters. For Empire he usually focusses on more modern, recent films, but on his website are some classics, like the poster for Rocky above. When you consider how similar most modern movie posters are, it’s a revelation to see someone who clearly loves films taking care and attention to make posters worthy of the films. His website is ollymoss.com, if you feel like browsing his fantastic back catalogue, and I have collated several of my favourite posters here (some are bigger than others, apologies).
And finally, he created the most amazing set of Star Wars posters for the only Star Wars films worth a damn.
