The Literal Movie Poster Series

on Inspiration

Designer Danish Ahmed recently took a very close look at a selection of popular movie titles and then, taking their literal meaning, created a poster for each movie. The highly original poster series has been called ‘Literal Movie Posters’, and as you will see from all of the posters below, they ‘literally’ do take things to-the-letter.

He has illustrated a couple of web avatars to represent the movie Avatar, a salt shaker for Salt, a wolf for the Wolf of Wall Street, Transformers by an actual electrical transformer… well, just check the rest for yourselves…
