James Bond Tribute: 50 Years of Bond Movies in 24 Posters

As you know “Skyfall” thundered this November and already earned 220-th position in Top250 on IMDb website. Recently Bond movies celebrated their 50-th anniversary, so let’s recollect in out minds all movies and their terrific protagonists.

Scroll the page down to see how the stylistics of these posters have changed. The first “Dr. No” slightly reminds pin-up pictures that was extremely popular starting from 40-s up to (almost) nowadays. One notable fact, looking at these posters we can see how technologies of creating collages advanced with time. Poster starting from the first Bond movie up to mid 80-s seem to hand-drawn, though we all know what happened in 1988…

In 1988 the first edition of Adobe Photoshop “saw the Earthly light” and starting from the “License To Kill” released in 1989 all posters look like familiar to all of us Photoshop collages. What’s more we cam see the start of “popularization if 3D effects”, look at “Tomorrow Never Dies” poster the wall of screen at the background sees to almost “true-to-life”. Next notable thing, check out “Casino Royale” poster, see that? This is the first minimalistic Bond poster, that’s not without a cause. Approximately in 2005-06 Webdesignland met minimal style, here and there minimal websites began emerging, what’s more even in music Minimal/Minimal House was extremely popular in those years.

What’s going on?! The “Skyfall” – a classic James Bond film. It complies all traditions of this genre. It’s fun, exciting, intelligent spy movie that combines genres of detective, thriller and adventure film. But what about the poster? What’s the first thing that comes up your mind you think about Bond movies? That will definitely be that look through the barrel of a gun. The “Skyfall” brings us back to traditions giving us the old-school Bond we like so much, the spirit of first Bond movies comes through that barrel, do you feel it?
