Ten Iconic Science Fiction Movie Posters

April 28th, 2011

I just finished redecorating my student computer lab, replacing my old Demotivator posters from despair.com (great but have been up for 8+ years) with science fiction movie posters:

It occurs to me I should have used the power of the internet to get some other ideas, although I like my choices.  I’ve still got a little space on another wall, and perhaps I can add one more.  Anyway, let me give my list of favorites and solicit opinions about them and others.  Here are ten of my favorites that seem iconic to me.  Keep in mind that some great movies have crappy posters, and some crappy movies have some pretty good posters.


Original Star Wars (I like other ones, but this one was on my wall as a kid=iconic in my life):

Original Terminator:

The Matrix:


Blade Runner:

Forbidden Planet:

A Clockwork Orange (I also like other versions):




Honorable Mentions: Predator, Jurassic Park, Avatar, Tron (original), The Day the Earth Stood Still (original), Attack of the 50 Foot Woman. Other great ones I missed?

Sorry for all the amazon links, but it’s an easy and quick way to get the images up.
