These International Far From Home Banners Offer Up a Great Look at Spidey's Variable Wardrobe

That boy does love a costume change, doesn’t he?

A set of banners released to promote Spider-Man: Far From Home showcase all three of the costumes Spidey seems to be rocking in the new movie (blue one from Homecoming not included, as it seems to not feature all that heavily).

As Slash Film reports, these international banners each give a good look at the costumes, from the Iron Spider look...

Spider-Man Is All Talk in This Awesome Japanese Far From Home Poster

Or, at least, all text.

I’m a connoisseur of cool movie posters, and this one, found by Comic Book Resources, has some style I can really appreciate. The poster, being used to promote Spider-Man: Far From Home renders Spidey’s masked face as a conglomeration of words, giving the hero a visage fitting his reputation as one of the more talkative heroes out there.

I don’t know what most of...

Watch This Poster Artist Run Down the MCU's Best and Worst Designs

I’m passionate about movie posters , but I can’t say I really understand the craft of making them. James Verdesoto, a poster artist with a long career that includes, among others, the iconic poster for Pulp Fiction, does, though. And he’s generous enough to share.

This Artist Has Turned the Movie Poster Into a Science

This Artist Has Turned the Movie Poster Into a Science

If you want to master something, do it a lot. Artist Scott Saslow took that to heart when he, a couple years ago, embarked on a project to create one movie poster a day. Now, he’s still making posters, and his work is incredible—minimal but iconic, made with a deft awareness of exactly how to translate a film into a single arresting image.

Scott Saslow was generous enough to share some of...

This Pacific Rim/Godzilla Crossover Poster Is a Glimpse into the Kaiju Utopia of My Dreams

This <i>Pacific Rim/Godzilla </i>Crossover Poster Is a Glimpse into the Kaiju Utopia of My Dreams

Godzilla and Pacific Rim is the crossover we deserve. In a just, good world, there would be five movies of this, just Jaegers and Godzilla, first enemies, then friends, then frenemies, and then, just when you think it gets old, in space.

While that beautiful world is not yet ours, we at least have this: for the Japanese releases of the second film in the Godzilla anime series and Pacific Rimi...

The Birth, Death, and Resurrection of True Movie Poster Art

The Birth, Death, and Resurrection of True Movie Poster Art

A great movie poster can be better than the movie itself. With one single glance, it can sell an impossible promise and offer unlimited possibility. However, in the past few decades, the idea of the illustrated, artistic, idealistic movie poster has more or less gone away. Now, a new documentary called 24 x 36: A Movie About Movie Posters explores why that happened and poses a solution to the...
