10 Best Film Posters For Movie Lovers

We all love a movie, don’t we?

They introduce us to new characters, environments, situations and scenarios, whilst taking us on emotional roller coasters and pulsating rides.

A good film can make you forget all about the real world, and steal your full attention, keeping that pesky phone or tablet well out of your reach.

Going to the cinema and taking in the full force of a film is where all of our love for movies began, but for those extra special pictures there’s a whole range of ways you keep enjoying it away from the big screen.

There’s plenty of merchandise and memorabilia to come from our own prized movies, but one of our favourite ways of showing off our love is through film posters.

These aren’t items used as promotional material. These are items that are a unique art form themselves, with many of them created by famous illustrators to add a new element to the storytelling, or show off new cool concepts.

Movie artwork can show off iconic scenes, battles, heroes, villains, you name it, whilst also injecting some of your personality into the interiors of your home.

Whether you’re a fan of big blockbusters, horrors or vintage classics, film posters come in all kinds of designs, shapes and sizes that are perfect for any room.

    Jaws Print

    It may have hit cinemas 45 years ago but it’s still scaring many of us away from venturing into the sea… 1975 saw the release of the then highest grossing film, and one that’s still considered one of the greatest of all time today – Jaws. This Steven Spielberg classic followed the pulsating battle between humans and a 25 foot Great White Shark, one that we wouldn’t particularly want to be involved in. Oh, and he also weights around three tons. Yep, we’re out. Jaws smashed a whole bunch of records to rake in over $470 million at the box office, and it’s still going strong today, with it living on in 4K UHD, steelbooks and prints. This vintage poster is up there with our favourites, taking us right back to the 70’s with it’s iconic branding and image of Bruce hunting his prey. This one is well worthy of being framed as a great addition to any collection.

    The Dark Knight Print

    Wow. Well where do we even begin with this one? Back in 2009 Christopher Nolan redefined the superhero genre with one of the greatest movies of all time and a firm favourite of ours here at Zavvi. The Dark Knight featured a stellar cast including Sir Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Christian Bale and the late Heath Ledger, who put in a mesmerising performance as the Joker. Batman’s tussle with the clown and Two-Face made for incredible viewing, which in turn resulted in a mega $1 billion at the box office, which says it all. A film that you can watch over and over and over, it’s also one that you can bring to life in other ways in your home. This Dark Knight print shows Gotham’s hero, featuring the famous bat symbol embossed in fire, just backing up how much a bad-ass he is. This is a print that would look at home on almost any interior and we’re huge fans of it.

    Empire Strikes Back Screenprint

    The Star Wars Skywalker Saga has provided us with nine fantastic episodes and some amazing, iconic moments. We all have our favourites but one for many of us is The Empire Strikes Back. The second entrance to the original trilogy but fifth overall, this 1980 masterpiece is still regarded as one of the finest sci-fi films of all-time. It took us to Cloud City where Han was frozen and captured, provided us with epic battles on Hoth and of course produced that famous quote from Darth Vader to Luke. So much happened which means you need a pretty epic print to capture the adulation and events to come from it – which is what this Zavvi exclusive provides. Showcasing tussles, characters and locations from the film, this vintage screenprint by Steve Thomas is one for die hard fans of the franchise.

    Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone Print

    Spanning across LEGO, books, film, clothing and print, Harry Potter is one of the biggest movie franchises out there with an enormous fan base. It took the world by storm through the fantastic book series but it reached to huge new heights following the release of the epic eight part movie series – raking in around $7.7 billion in box office revenue alone. The Zavvi Gallery contains a number of cool Harry Potter posters but this is really one that sticks out – taking us right  back to the beginning. The Philosopher’s Stone is the first entrance in the series, kick-starting a famous timeline that we’re all now so familiar with. This original film poster will have the nostalgia flooding back and we’re sure it’d go down a treat with the younger Potter fans.

    Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring Print

    A fabulous book series re-told, an all-star cast, epic battles and magnificent scenery, Lord Of The Rings has it all. This trilogy from the J.R.R Tolkein novels hit cinemas around the world between 2001-03 and it’s fair to say that it was a bit of a success. Peter Jackson directed this masterpiece of a trilogy which is even more impressive when you consider the quick turnaround. Just like some of the other franchises we’ve highlighted, LOTR has a huge fan base and it’s hard not to be captivated by the story. There’s a number of factors that make this so watchable and gripping, but one underrated one is the scenery. Shot amongst the natural splendour of New Zealand, it looks absolutely incredible, which is echoed in this print. Showing off the final scene of the first movie, this is one not to be missed.

    The Warriors Print

    We all love a good gang movie, but The Warriors isn’t your regular gang movie. The Punks, The Boppers, The Baseball Fury. These guys aren’t your run of the mill gangs which in turn makes for a funny and hugely entertaining action film. It sees The Warriors pinned for a murder which they didn’t commit and face the wrath of their rivals. It’s now somehow over 40 years on since it’s original release and if you love this as much as us, then this is for you. This Zavvi exclusive screenprint features special artwork featuring all of The Warriors and with just 200 pieces available worldwide, it’s a real collectors item and certainly frame-worthy.

    Back To The Future Part II

    Is there a film that screams out the 80’s more than Back To The Future? Nope, thought not. This era defining trilogy starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd gained cult status in  the 80’s and early 90’s, with the pair travelling to various time periods in the amazing DeLorean – something we would love to have a go on! For many around the world this was THE film of their childhood and it’s still enjoyed by many today. This art print features each of those famous characters along with their iconic time travelling machine – making this print a must for 80’s kids!

    Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi Print

    Star Wars is massive and the hype around the sequel trilogy was like something we haven’t seen in a long time. It gave us a whole host of new heroes and villains (along with some old favourites). One of the most fascinating characters came in the form of Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren, who spearheaded the First Order’s thirst for galactic dominance, sporting a never before seen crossguard lightsaber and his fear inducing helmet. This special screenprint from the eight episode shows Ren sporting his saber on board a Star Destroyer, with it’s red luminous glow making the print a real standout addition. It’s artwork that embodies the darkness of this character and one that’d be a great gift for any Star Wars fan.

    Jurassic Park Print

    Another Steven Spielberg special and boy, what a film. This is a movie that was a favourite of many of ours growing up and now 27 years on from it’s original release, it’s still going strong. Jurassic Park is packed full of pulsating chases, nail biting close shaves, dinosaurs and of course, Jeff Goldblum. It doesn’t get any better than this. A 90’s classic and one that you can always rely on when you’re searching for something to watch on Netflix. For all of us super fans of this movie you can bring it to your home in print form with this minimal but quality art print, featuring the famous logo. What a film.

    What list would this be without a horror poster right? Here we’ve gone for Stephen King’s famous It, featuring Pennywise The Clown. This story dates back to his novel that was released back in 1986 but has risen to prominence in recent years after it was adapted once again. The movies are packed full of jumps and suspense filled scenes – which in turn make it a must-watch. If you’re a fan of this classic character or are buying a gift for a friend who enjoys Pennywise, this framed horror poster would definitely be a great shout!
