Top 15 Best Movie Posters 2014

In 2014, we saw some great movies release onto the big-screen, from timeless superhero movies, like Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy, to hilarious comedy greats, like The Grand Budapest Hotel and Birdman.

However, today we're looking at the best of 2014's Hollywood movie posters, all of which wowed us into watching the movies. Often enough, at times when the movie poster has been done well, usually the movie behind the image is great, or at the very least, good.

All of these movie posters have something redeeming about them, making them the best (posters) of 2014. Listed from the best movie poster (in our opinion), down to the least best.

So, here they are.

1. Nightcrawler

Why so great? The newspaper 'ink print' effect on the poster, and the city image shown
through Jake Gyllenhaal's glasses. Simple, but effective.

2. The Grand Budapest Hotel

Why so great? The face cards fitted where the hotel room keys should be.
Creative, imaginative and very fitting for a Wes Anderson films poster.

3. Godzilla

Why so great? The guys dropping from the sky, mystified by the red smoke following behind them.
Plus, the scaly, rocky back of the giant Godzilla monster, presenting mystery to what
the monsters face looks like.

4. Interstellar

Why so great? The mystery behind the beaming light coming from the sky.
Plus, the thought provoking words written on the poster, reading, "mankind was born
on earth. It was never meant to die here".

5. Inherent Vice

Why so great? Joaquin Phoenix's far-out look and the bright 60's-style lettering and colours.
Plus, all of the colourful characters hanging out in Phoenix's crazy hair.

6. The Birdman

Why so great? The artistic shades of bright blue colours blended behind Michael Keaton's face.
Plus, the birdman perched on-top of Keaton's head.

7. The Interview

Why so great? The Korean words. The Asian-style comic drawings in the background.
Seth Rogen and James Franco's serious stare into the distance.

8. As Above, So Below

Why so great? The dark red colour plastered all over the poster, depicting the Eiffel tower upside down,
and skulls under ground. We love it all. 

9. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Why so great? Caesar's scary stare, which looking at it, feels as though he's staring into your soul.
The detail on Caesar's face, mainly around the cheeks and eyes.

10. Enemy

Why so great? The deep look into Jake Gyllenhaal's characters mind, which looks mysterious to
say the least. The white (or pink) use of blank space in the background
 behind Gyllenhaal.

11. American Sniper

Why so great? The American flag waving gracefully behind Bradley Cooper, enabling
a distinct feel of patriotism on the poster. The grey sky in the background,
leaving better focus on Bradley Cooper, the flag and the movies title.

12. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Why so great? Gandalf's (Ian Mckellen's) fearful look to the side, and the effectiveness
of the usage of a single character in one of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

13. Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Why so great? The focus on Captain America's shield, and the bad-ass clench of fists from
Captain America himself. Plus, the shining of the sun coming from the right of
Captain America.

14. Kingsman: The Secret Service

Why so great? The professionalism of the organised closet for a super-spy.
The simplicity of everything you could imagine a British secret agent
may need, including an umbrella (or two).

15. Dracula Untold

Why so great? The bats coming from (or to) Dracula, which in itself looks awesome.
Plus, the darkness beneath Dracula's feet, spotlighting the movies title.
