The History of Countries’ Flags Origins

Just like they do with everything else in a modern-day movie industry, they exploit  movie posters a lot. Overexposing is definitely a trend now...  On, let's say, a Monday, an attention-grabbing poster for a film like Spring Breakers surfaces online and gives off that iconic feeling of old; on that following Thursday, though, two new alternate one-sheets premiere on various blogs and instantly dilute the initial poster's impact. But if you think of the good old days of the Hollywood's Golden Era, there was a simpler approach: create one truly unforgettable image that captured the film's spirit while also generating excitement at just a glance. Movie posters were not mere commercial gimmicks but were more like pieces of art. Will anyone remember the countless individual character sheets for this weekend's The Great Gatsby? Don't count on it. For better or worse, the wall space reserved for the 75 most iconic movie posters of all time shall remain undisturbed.
