On the Movie Poster of the Day Tumblr blog, a collection of awesome movie posters. Above, the beautiful Japanese poster for Zero Dark Thirty as explained by Adrian Curry on Mubi.com.

For some reason this Japanese poster for Zero Dark Thirty — an even more striking version of the American teaser — which I posted three months ago recently went semi-viral, racking up over 1,400 “notes” to date, making it by far the most popular (in as far as likes and reblogs really gauge popularity) in the history of the blog which now has, according to Tumblr, over 198,000 followers.

I’m especially pleased with the popularity of the second and third ranked posters: a couple of quite eccentric pieces of Eastern European illustration for lesser known films. It’s probably no surprise that more than half of the 21 most popular posters of the past six months are from Eastern Europe. The majority, as usual, are from the 60s and 70s but it’s nice to see three contemporary designs in the mix. And I extended this Top 20 to 21 just because I love that Japanese Hud so much.
