These days, we pretty much know what to expect from a big budget movie poster. Floating heads, dodgy Photoshop and cluttered composition are hallmarks of the modern one-sheet, but 2023 is giving us hope for a return to a more classic style.

This week alone we've seen two beautifully illustrated poster designs land online, for David Fincher's The Killer, and familiar-friendly horror flick Zombie Town. And they're by no means the first we've seen this year. (Looking for design inspiration? Check out the best print ads of all time.)
