Readers and would-be Adobe Photoshop gurus over at the Something Awful forums recently pointed their weekly “Photoshop Phriday” remix thread at modern movies illustrated in a “Grindhouse cinema” movie poster style. In this case, Grindhouse being the popular label for the low budget film and exploitation movie poster style popular in the 60s and 70s.
It is always interesting to see modern movies re-interpreted through a different style of key art — this film poster remix for Little Miss Sunshine is a particularly good (and disturbing) example.
Great link. I’m a big fan of ’70s exploitation posters. This makes me want to create a grindhouse version poster of Pee Wee’s Big Adventure.
I just read this entire blog all the way back to the beginning. I feel so knowledgeable now! Interesting stuff, thank you.
Appreciate the kind words, Mireya.
is there any tutorial on the web about creatind these kind of posters with photoshop?please some help…they are great,specially taht little miss sunshine and amelie so amazing.
Looks like a combination of Lightroom and iPhoto. Is this an online or desktop app? I’ve requested in the past Adobe create a light viewer and something to do very basic edits. Hope this is that. i.e. Like Irfanview but Adobeized.
I put a small collection of grindhouse poster on my blog as well as a little synopsis of each one: http://houseofwook.com/great-posters-for-grindhouse-movies/
