Movie Poster: Shampoo

Here’s an example where I really like the “closeups of movie stars” concept for a poster, otherwise known as “big floating heads”.

I like it because, unlike so many “big floating heads” posters of today – it actually does seem like these three actors are in the photo shoot together. Whether or not they are is irrelevant. It could be three separate images blended together … but the appearance is not disjointed, like so many movie posters today – where it is so obvious that everyone has been Photoshopped in within an inch of their lives, and nobody is in the same space.

But I also think it is perfect not only because of the stars involved – but perfect for a movie about self-involvement, image, yearning for connection, and celebrity itself.
