Research Methods: Poster Design

As I had mentioned in an earlier post; I wanted to create a series of movie posters to promote original films over the rebooted ones. With there being many films rebooted lately, the originals were becoming less and less popular. Therefore I wanted to create pieces of work that would want people to see them.

Originally I wanted to make promotional videos that would be made more upbeat to connect with a younger audience much like fan made videos on YouTube attract viewers and generate comments and opinions. However I decided against this idea since it would take up a lot more time and planning to structure the trailers and find suitable soundtracks along with copyright laws. Therefore i decided it would be best to design poster that can recapture audiences and attract new ones.

For my designs I wanted to base them on popular originals that had been rebooted recently.
From my research I found a selection of films I wanted to base my work on:

movie
Superman (1978)                                                The Karate Kid (1984) 

movie2
Highlander (1986)                                                RoboCop (1987)

movie3
Batman (1989)                                                   Total Recall (1990)

movie4
Judge Dredd (1995)

Given that all of these films were popular in their day, what’s stopping them from still being popular?
All films can be marketed in a way to attract an audience, with this in mind I plan to do just that and reconnect people to these classic films.
