I would take off the Die another Day poster (#5), Unfaithful (#25) and The Hunt for Red October and put on Brazil , Once Upon A Time In America , and Once Upon A Time In The West:

Certainly more iconic than the poster for "The 40 Year Old Virgin"

Yeah, that is kind of obvious.

Too many mediocrities among some good choices.

They have to be kidding me with the Collateral poster and qoute.

Anyway, A few of the Bond films were just as good or better than than Die Another Day. For Your Eyes Only probably being the most recognizable.

I'd have to say this one also should also be higher than 40 Year Old Virgin

That list is kind of bullshit.

Where's Shawshank, Batman Begins, etc...

You know, I can think of some better and more iconic posters than some of the ones on that list. Star Wars, The Godfather, Escape From New York, Elm Street and The Thing have already been mentioned and I would like to add the following;

Rocky
Halloween
Dawn of the Dead (original)
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original)
I Spit On Your Grave
Phantasm (my personal favorite poster of all time)
Iron Giant
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Re-animator
and 7 Doors of Death (AKA The Beyond).

I own a few of these posters and they are much more beautiful and memorable than The 40 Year Old Virgin's poster, or Premonition's poster...

Vertigo should have been about 40 spots higher.

There were some good ones on that list (Rocketeer, Pulp Fiction, Jaws, to name a few), but half of that list was kinda crappy (Die Another Day, Unfaithful, Identity, Brotherhood of the Wolf, etc.).

I agree with all of the above posted posters, pun not intended.

some that I love (I could easily list 100 myself):

My favorite movie poster (at least in this forum) is MartinBlank since he's always digging up interesting lists for us to read and discuss.

That Suspiria tagline is great. The poster, not so much.
