The 20 Best Movie Posters Of 2013

13 December 2013 | Features, Other Lists | by David Zou

The importance of a movie’s poster cannot be overstated. Sure, a great movie is still great even if the poster is lousy, but a great poster is a calling card. You hang it in your room. It represents the film on DVD and Blu-ray. A good poster for a movie you love forces you to remember why you love it in first place and represents the spirit of the film.

Sadly, most movie posters are lousy, boring at best and just plain ugly at worst. Of course, that makes it all the more important to celebrate the posters that really do work.

This is not a list of the best movies of 2013. This is simply a list of the best posters of 2013. Some represent their movie perfectly. Some actually sell a better, more different movie. But out of the hundreds of movie posters released in 2013, these are the ones that we love the most. We add the IMDB link to each title in case you want to know more about the film.
