The original 1977 movie was innovative in many respects, but it was derivative by design. In creating a galaxy far, far away, Lucas effectively draped his imagination over a constellation of yarns so familiar that they seem to have spun from the marrow of our bones. Its alchemy is nothing if not well documented: A New Hope combined the plot of Akira Kurosawa’s The Hidden Fortress with the widescreen scale of Lawrence of Arabia and the Saturday morning spectacle of serials like Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers. With his 20th-century influences well in hand, Lucas then poured them like molten metal into the iron mold of the hero’s journey as laid out by Joseph Campbell, who traced the origins of modern narrative arcs back to the beginning of civilization. “I wanted a contemporary version of the myth and the fairy tale,” Lucas said in a Los Angeles Times interview published days before Star Wars first hit theaters in 1977. … [Read more...] about Why ‘The Force Awakens’ Is the ‘Star Wars’ Movie We Needed

As for the posters themselves, they're all done with Chinese lettering, with the majority featuring a grey border with a very minimalistic but stylish image at its center. The exception is Toy Story 4, which features the gang gathered together on a more colorful and slightly more traditional-looking one-sheet. In any event, they're all quite nice to look at and are a welcome break from the usual overly Photoshopped posters we so often get from studios these days. For what it's worth, due to their minimal nature, none of the posters reveal much of anything about their respective movie.
