Eye-candy from the movie poster year of 2011

What makes a great movie poster? It can be many different things. Some work by being eye-catching and drawing your attention to it. Others are cleverly designed, making allusions to the themes and premise of the film. Then there are those that are just beautiful to look at, and the kind of thing you wouldn’t mind hanging on your wall. And then there are the funny ones, and the creepy ones, etcetera etcetera. Terrible films can have amazing posters, and the movies we love can be saddled with eye-rollingly uninspired ones.

Whatever category they fall into, 2011 had its fair share of awesome posters. Here are some of my favorites, in no particular order.

All images are taken from IMP Awards, always a great source for anyhting movie poster related.

Someone explain this tagline to me

Some new posters for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 were recently unveiled. Heres one of them below.

The tagline reads “Forever is only the beginning“, which is more than a little puzzling to me. The wording would imply that there would be something after forever. This, by definition, should be impossible, no? So what’s going on here?

I’m genuinely curious. Understand I’m not trying to poke fun at easy targets here or anything. I haven’t read the books or seen any of the films, so maybe there is something in the Twilight mythos that gives some sense of logic to the line. If so, I really want to know. I assume “forever” is meant to evoke the idea of vampires being immortal, and I get that “beginning” is there to bring home the fact that this is just the first part of Breaking Dawn. But this still doesn’t explain the meaning of the tagline. I don’t hate Twilight, having had no experience with it (and admittedly, I don’t particularly want to either), but this tagline just seems like nonsense to me.

What does “Forever is only the beginning” mean?
