The Best Movie Posters of 2017
The sands are slipping through the hourglass; November has officially turned to December and with it, it’s now list-making time. This week, we’re getting an early jump on the festivities. Let the wild year-end rumpus start!
First up, we’re picking the best movie posters of 2017, the latest installment of a grand and glorious ScreenCrush tradition dating back a full two years (24 whole months! You can see our picks for the best posters of 2016 and 2015 by clicking those links.) This year we picked 25 of our favorites; note that, as usual, the posters had to be released this year, but the movies did not. So a great poster for a 2017 movie that was unveiled in 2016 (like the Kong: Skull Island poster) wouldn’t count, but a great poster for a 2018 movie that debuted this calendar year would. You’ll see one or two examples of that below; for now, we won’t spoil our own list.
Admittedly, just 25 choices means we had to leave a bunch of stuff out. (Sorry Atomic Blonde and Downsizing and The Fate of the Furious and Phantom Thread and Wonder Wheel.) And we didn’t have time to do the companion list of the worst movie posters of the year, unfortunately. (If we had, this would have been the clear number one.) Instead, we’re focusing on the positive. Here, in ascending order, are our picks for the best posters of 2017:
