The reinterpretations made use of some hints and elements that usually made the films famous, refocusing the spirit of the cover on the element he chose. With brilliant peaks that created small masterpieces, such as the poster for Apocalypse Now centered on the “smell of napalm” or the one for Scarface remade with white powder.

Spike Jonze-signed copy of my 'Her' poster thanks to seeing him a few weeks ago at Sydney's Vivid Festival. @alissamay02 and I had the good fortune of seeing the amazing directorial dude speak recently about his films, editing and weirdly enough, hairdressing. We were lucky enough to sneak backstage and deliver him a copy of my 'Her' Movie Poster, and he was gracious enough to sign a copy too. Legend. Such a great talk from one of the most interesting filmmakers out there. #vivid #spikejonze #alternativemovieposter
