Welcome to the ‘Art of Movies’.  Don’t worry, no pretentious wankery here, just a few cool posters and a brief word about each one.  With all the excitement surrounding the latest Suicide Squad Trailer, I thought it was high time we had a look at some of the movie’s official posters, imagery and fan art.  Click here for more information about the film.

Recently I’ve noticed more and more that the quality of fan art is often on par, if not better than the posters developed by the studios.  In some cases you can see the studios almost imitating the style of the fan made creations. Don’t get me wrong, there’s some shockers out there too but let’s not worry about those for now.  Below is one of the teaser images featuring our first look at the Joker played by Jared Leto and you can see the influence from Brian Bolland’s classic artwork from ‘The Killing Joke’ graphic novel.maxresdefault (1)Margot Robbie Harley Quinn was also introduced in a teaser photo as the flip side of the same image:
ne5fnecuaeve88_2_bDue the popularity of the Suicide Squad comics and their characters, fan boys and girls couldn’t wait to start creating their own art.  Often guessing cast members or including their very own dream team of actors. A great example of this is the fan art below created by Kode Logic, created before a single production still had been released, it even features Oprah Winfrey as Amanda Waller, who was originally tipped to play the part before Viola Davis landed the role:kode 2

Here are the latest offerings from the studio, and personally I think they’re great but you can clearly see that they’ve embraced the minimalist approach favoured by independent artists.  These were originally distributed by each actor to showcase the character they’re portraying:
