Top 10 Week: Posters of 2016

#10: Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World

A clever play on the picture timeline of human evolution for a documentary about the impact of technology on humans and how it's changing the ways that we interact with each other.

#9: La La Land

Cool and beautiful, much like the film itself.

#8: Finding Dory

Simple and playful, with a beautiful color scheme.

#7: Jackie

You would think that red on red would be a bit harsh to the eye, but instead the color scheme for this poster for Jackie looks elegant and stylish, particularly the way the "J" loops up and around Natalie Portman's collar.

#6: The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden has a couple of different posters, and this one itself has a few variations with small differences. This one is beautifully textured looking and casually incorporates a few key moments from the story into the image.

#5: Deadpool

Deadpool had several posters, but I think that this one perfectly encapsulates the irreverent attitude of the film.

#4: Kubo and the Two Strings

Simply a beautiful image, at once soft and delicate and suggestive of the grand adventure its characters are undertaking.

#3: Allied

Classic and elegant, with an artful touch in having the letters "l-i-e" marked out by a line running through them.

#2: The Birth of a Nation

A bold visual statement in which the legacy of slavery is indivisible from the idea of "America."

#1: Moonlight

Three images coming together as one, which not only makes for a striking picture but also visually demonstrates how the film tells its story.
