Seeing this poster of Steven Soderbergh‘s latest film, The Informant!, got me thinking about how much I enjoy the creativity behind his one sheets. There’s the ode to the 1940s studio system with The Good German, the pulpy feel of Out of Sight, then there’s the fragmented visual style with The Limey and The Girlfriend Experience. In a time when most filmmakers are just happy audiences show up to the theaters, it’s nice to see there’s at least one who’s still nostalgic for the oldest form of movie marketing (though I have no idea if he has a hand in the creation of these, I like to think he does UPDATE: Soderbergh’s office says he always has a hand in doing them, and most of the time they’re done in house).

Here’s some of my favorite Soderbergh one sheets:
