Amazing Retro Posters For Best Picture Nominees

By now you’ve hopefully seen all of the Best Picture nominees or, hopefully, you’ve at least seen the top four which actually have a chance of winning. You’ve seen them, but you’ve never seen them quite like this.

The British Academy Film & Television Awards hired artist Tavis Coburn to re-envision all five of their BAFTA nominees, which include four Oscar frontrunners plus An Education, and turn them into promotional posters for the event. The results are stunning, five-retro posters which cast all five nominees in a new light. All five look like something ripped from the cover of a classic, sci-fi pulp novel or alternatively, a surprisingly awesome 1950’s General Electric washing machine ad. It works especially well with The Hurt Locker, which in Coburn’s hands could just as easily have taken place on the moon.
