80s Movies - Back to the Future

This is the start of a new series of 80s movie poster illustrations, this time centring around the great movies of the 1980s.  I'm actually old enough to have been a teenager in the 80s, so I remember in 1985 going to see this amazing new movie at the cinema called "Back to the Future".

I remember that everyone went NUTS over it, and even watching it today it still holds up.

In this poster, Ive picked out some classic elements to the story, and arranged them in a way that hopefully visually explains the central themes of the movie - I also added in some more subtle ideas, like the way that the lightning and the flaming tyre tracks go together to form the outline of the Flux Capacitor, key to Doc Brown's Time-Travelling DeLorean.

This Illustration is a different style to the previous movie posters, moving into a more limiting 'icon' styled approach. It was a real challenge, but I really enjoyed it - I'll definitely be carrying on the series with another classic movie soon.

Hope you like it.

  6. There are basically two types of online movie rentals. One kind offers you the chance to do your rental selecting online, but you have to eventually go to the store and pick up your rental movie. On the other hand, there are the online movie rentals that have you choose your movie and rent it online, then it is mailed to you. There are advantages and disadvantages with both. altadefinizione
