Harry Potter 6 and Surrogates posters

These Harry Potter posters blew me away. The audacity of almost totally obscuring the title is unheard of in the (mostly) tired, formulaic medium of the film poster. There's many other iterations of this, including some that obscure the title even more.

Ripping off another design is just stupid. What's worse is that there's actually another version of this poster that doesn't show her legs. If anyone has an image of that version, post a link or send it in.


  1. Great blog, I've been enjoying it every day. FYI, the link to the TSCC poster doesn't work.

  2. Emily, the link seemed to be working inconsistently. Not sure why. Linked over to another source, so it's working now. Thanks for the comment and the heads-up.

  3. And don't forget there was question about the Terminator poster you referenced itself being a rip-off.

  4. Very good Su! I have such well informed readers. Of course, one could easily say that both are more than inspired by the Borg Queen in Star Trek: First Contact (which I suspect is also not the first time a half-finished robot babe has been suspended from the ceiling in the history of sci-fi imagery). Either way, it's safe to say this idea has been well tread upon.
