I’m a big fan of movie posters. I surround myself with them at the office, and I have dozens at home as well. My favorites are the original Raiders of the Lost Ark poster, which hangs above the DVD collection, the original poster for The Dark Crystal, which hangs above my writing desk in my study, and the very first teaser poster for The Fellowship of the Ring which shows Frodo holding out the Ring to us (that one’s in the living room).
It was an exciting year for movie posters in my opinion. In some cases, I liked the posters more than the movies themselves. I’m curious, though… what were your favorites?

My Blueberry Nights
Gus Van Sant’s Paranoid Park
Son of Rambow
And I have a question: Why is there a dragon on this poster?
