Best Movie Posters — 2012 ScreenCrush Awards


It’s that time of year for the 2012 ScreenCrush Awards, where we look back and rank the best in movies and TV.

If there’s one thing that movie posters of 2012 have taught us, it’s that marketing can be artful — just take a look at the ones for ‘The Wolverine,’ ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’ and ‘Life of Pi.’ Many great posters have debuted online this year, including promos for 2013 movies, but which one was the best of the bunch? Vote for your favorite movie poster in our poll after the break!

‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ and ‘Man of Steel’ are the latest to debut their first posters in 2012, but don’t forget about all the other greats from previous months. What about all those incredible ones from Comic-Con? Still, considering there are way too many candidates to consider, we’ve taken the liberty to narrow down the nominees a bit.

Check out the full list of 2012 movie posters below, and be sure to vote for your favorite in our poll at the bottom of the page.
