From russia with love
one of the classic early bond posters, it has all the hallmarks of a traditional bond poster, that hasnt changed much over the years, namely woman, guns and the suave spy himself. I like the hand drawn illustrations of the figures, they are realistic yet epic, it also uses an unusual format, landscape instead of portrait. It hints at the themes of the film. I prefer older posters like this that arn't in the glossy style that all film posters seem to use nowadays, it has a lot more character, and if the poster has a nice creative look to it, it hints that the film will be the same. I like the use of golden colours for the majority of the images on the poster, i think it ties it all together.
