Last week we premiered the poster for a funky little Korean film called 'The Housemaid,' courtesy of IFC Films. What we didn't know at the time was that the poster was designed by Sam Smith, a graphic designer who also plays drums for Ben Folds, The Comfies and My So-Called Band. Smith has designed a number of posters for clients like IFC Films, Janis Films and The Belcourt Theatre, but he also designs his own posters for fun.
For example, over on his site Smith has posted reimagined movie posters for his favorite films of 2010. There's 10 in total (with an honorary 11th spot reserved for the Cannes winner 'Uncle Boonmee'), including very cool posters for films like 'The Social Network,' 'Toy Story 3,' 'Never Let Me Go,' 'The Illusionist,' 'Dogtooth,' 'Bluebeard,' 'True Grit,' 'Winter's Bone,' 'The American,' and our personal favorite, 'Black Swan.'
Check out our five favorite posters, as well as some words from Smith, after the jump.
