Do posters made of an artist's drawings don't sell for this new generations? Or is it the type of drawings on 'em?
Maybe it's all generational, no? Just tonight I was appreciating the posters of Fright Night
(1985) and Return of the Living Dead Part II
(1988). Yeah, they look similar! And oh, I totally LOVE that art!
But then again I'm also captured by drawing-based posters for other genres like comedy (not only horror), for example, that one of Fraternity Vacation
(1985)...But then again it's all about the same decade/times.
Do you think it's as simple as drawing-based posters just don't sell today (and today's people rather prefer one based on real photos of artists/landscapes/things) instead of personal representations of 'em? I know maybe today many movies don't deserve a drawn-poster (for the drawing-based poster lover) but, what do you think about it? Let me know.
I just checked Apple Trailers website now... As you can see most of 'em are photo-based even when they show things, rather than drawing-based
