Turner Classic Movies is gearing up for their annual Summer Under the Stars marathon and have just released a series of 12 posters that are better than anything to come out of Hollywood in years. This ain’t hyperbole- anyone rightfully complaining about the lack of interesting or artistic posters need look no further than TCM’s site.



If they were to sell these, I know I’d have to pick up a handful of them.
