i'm obsessed with alternative movie posters

i've discovered this whole new genre of art lately.. i mentioned it briefly here, but i only just recently began to scratch the depths of the world of alternative movie posters. pretty sure i'm already planning a wall dedicated to these cool things in our future home. here are some of my favorites:

austin and i both love this one. unfortunately, i don't think it's for sale. womp womp.

source
i may buy this one.. i'm a little obsessed. it'd obviously have to go in like, the music room.. nowhere i have family hanging out or anything. but man oh man. it's so good.

source
there's a ton of twin peaks art that i've favorited on etsy, but most of those are just references to the show.. not posters made for the show, and i kind of like the idea of just being like "yes, we enjoyed twin peaks" rather than "THE OWLS ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM YOU DON'T GET THIS PROBABLY" idk.

source
okay, this is the last one by the same artist and also the last moonrise kingdom one.. i'm still a little obsessed with having something moonrise kingdom-inspired in my life. even if i have to re-pierce my ears just to wear lil beetle earrings, it'll happen. ;)

source
the royal tenenbaums. secret: my dad accidentally threw away the dvd that came with my criterion collection version of the royal tenenbaums, so i cut the case picture up to frame. it's richie with mordecai, and i love it (actually, this is it.. i just cut it into a square). it's on our frame wall in the living room, but i wouldn't mind referencing this movie somewhere else, too!

source
austin already said no way to this one, but i couldn't resist sharing it. what a sweet movie and cute print.

source
i can't decide if the wes anderson focus in this list is my fault, or if it's because wes anderson movies are just so easy to make art out of. probably a little bit of both, honestly. there's only one wes anderson movie in the world that i'm not a huge fan of.

source
i love the look of this one! and the movie. even though it's the most depressing of all of my favorite movies.

source
this one's cheating, because it's a book.. but it was made into a movie, so whatever. i think i might buy this for austin.

there are SO MANY more that i've favorited on etsy, but this could get redundant really quickly. :) especially considering how many more of them are wes anderson-related..

  2. I like these too, I recently found a great one for American beauty. Staying with this theme, I also really love alternative posters for gigs, there's some amazing sonic youth ones out there :)
