This poster for A Christmas Carol hits just the perfect balance between seeming like a hundred posters you have seen before and still having enough fresh elements to appear modern. Which is exactly as it should be.
Obviously you can’t have a poster that makes the film seem like something straight from the 80’s. And yet a big part of Christmas is that warm feeling of tradition, so you want to hit that as hard as you can, especially in something that is a new version of a many times retold story.
And on that note, here are some other Christmas Carol posters. The one for the Muppets has to be my favorite (artwork by Drew Struzan!).
