Designers Give the Oscar Best Picture Nominees a Pop Art Makeover

With the hours counting down to the 88th Annual Academy Awards, Shutterstock challenged their internal designers to create pop art posters for this year’s Best Picture nominees. Using art icons like Roy Lichtenstein and Keith Haring, then applying that aesthetic to the massive cache of imagery available through Shutterstock, the resulting posters are refreshingly different.

I’d love to see real-life posters for The Martian or The Revenant that played a bit more with artistic style. I’m not saying they should be as abstract as those insane Polish movie posters, but I’m sure we can do better than the ubiquitous blue/orange movie poster trope (seriously, almost every real-life poster below does it…)

Check out the re-imagined posters below, along with the original for comparison. Head to Shutterstock to see the inspiration behind each design and the stock images used to create them.
