Posters - Howl's Moving Castle (UK)

Now this is a movie poster! Always count on the British to come up with an excellent design. I'm not as enamored by the critics' endorsements - "A wonderful fairytale" is a tired, worn-out Disney cliche - but I really love this widescreen framing. These are the kind of movie posters you see at subway stations, enormous beasts that completely dwarf you.

Howl was blessed with a lot of great movie posters from around the world. You'd be happy to collect any one of 'em.

All UK film posters are horizontal nowadays and they're not huge: only about the size and shape of 2 and a half sides of A4 side-by-side. And it may interest you to know that there were 2 UK posers for this film: the other one, which has howl with a human head and a bird-body against a night sky, was on the other side of the cinema I saw the film at and is mentioned in the designers' description of the design process at but I have never seen it anywhere online.
