Please don’t ask me how I landed on this Chinese (social news?) site. But I found some excellent movie posters for a film called Ice Man’.

There’s also a few good ones for Magic Police - I think that’s google translate, I hope so anyway.

Asia (specifically Hong Kong, China, South Korea, sometimes Thailand) really owns this genre of dramatic retouch/photoshop art. I don’t know what it is. Proud, unironic vision? You’d be hard-pressed to find western equivalents of these posters that haven’t been watered down by marketing departments and focus groups.

I also have a soft spot for over the top 3d rendered typography…
