Book Review: Alternative Movie Posters II: More Film Art from the Underground

Alternative Movie Posters II: More Film Art from the Underground - 01


All the good things I've said about the first volume of Alternative Movie Posters continue to apply here.

It's another wonderful collection of art in this 208-page hardcover. Close to 100 artists are featured and the variety of style is fantastic. I like those that shows off hand drawn illustrations and there are plenty of those in this volume. The quality of art is top notch. I really enjoy how the artists come up with their concepts and different interpretation of the same films. Each poster comes with a short profile on the artist.

As for the films that are featured, they are mostly the cult hits and Hollywood blockbusters from decades ago. Things like the classics, Jaws, Back to the Future, Godfather, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction I guess are still very popular. There aren't too many recent films, and the ones that are included are for films such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America, Planet of the Apes reboot, Hobbit and a few others.

I wish in the future they would have a volume dedicated to films released in the last 10 years, or have volumes that are restricted to a specific decade. That would be fun.

Overall, it's a great artbook. Highly recommended.
