Recent Trend of Film Posters

In recent years, I noticed that more and more movie posters are using the portrait style to feature prominent actors/actresses to attract viewers. There seems to be a template for poster design and this trend is getting duller and duller for me. In my opinion, featuring famous stars is not the only way to get attention. For example, I didn’t need to see a close shot of Leonardo Dicaprio’s face to be intrigued by the poster of Inception. Although portraits of actors are perfectly fine for me, I hope that more elements in the movie are incorporated into the poster.
