Most Striking Film Posters of January 2016

Only three posters made the mark for The Poster World's January choice list. We had big releases (including biggies like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Joy, The Hateful Eight, Point Break and many more) on December 2015 and January also wasn't quite remarkable like past years. There were many releases but the posters from those were not quite mentionable. Let's get into business and get to know about the list of posters that made the mark.

1. Band of Robbers (2016)

This comedy thriller doesn't even have Wikipedia page, but still managed to make our top list. From January releases, we chose this bright red backgrounded poster. This poster's placing of characters is really cool. But there are uncertainties about the fonts. Title name looks average but the tag line's font looks really poor.

TPW Rating- 3.5/5

2. Aferim! (2016)

Aferim! is a Romanian film releasing mid-January on USA. With the dusky look of the poster we can guess that there could be some Western element on the film. The simplicity of the poster is really striking and fonts are also blending with the poster design work. Cool and innovative thinking! Suggestion also exists to understand the storyline.

TPW Rating- 4/5
3. Jane Got A Gun (2016)
Copyright- The Weinstein Company

Another Western on our list! This Natalie Portman starrer film poster is really a very good composition of ideas. Gaze of the character, cloudy background behind, her holding of the gun, 19th Century dress-up and amazing use of fat fonts really mingle with each other and gives us a fascinating yet not spectacular poster. Grey and gloomy at it's best!

TPW Rating- 4.5/5
