100 Iconic Movie Poster Designs From the 80’s

The movie poster designs in the 80’s weren’t just thrown together in 10 minutes by using photo manipulations techniques in Photoshop like they are nowadays.

I’d say most of my all-time favourite movies all stem from one decade – the 80’s.  Just thinking about them now makes me want to visit my DVD library and grab a handful classic 80s’ feel good movies.

You have to admit there was a hell of a lot of awesome movies released throughout that decade. Let me remind you of several motion picture gems. Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Empire Strikes Back, The Breakfast Club, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Goonies, Predator, The Terminator, Blade Runner, E.T and let’s not forget Scarface!

The movie poster designs in the 80’s weren’t just thrown together in 10 minutes by using photo manipulations techniques in Photoshop like they are nowadays. No, most of them anyway were hand-drawn like pretty much most of all movie posters where before the 90’s stepped in and ruined it!

Sit back, relax, grab your popcorn and prepare to feel nostalgic with this cool library of classic movies and their poster designs.
