BAFTA Best Film Posters

Whoa! Everyone knows I love a good poster, but these are phenomenal. Apparently BAFTA (the British Academy of Film and Television Arts), who just announced this year's winners of their awards earlier this week, commissioned illustrator Tavis Coburn of Dutch Uncle to create a series of new posters for each of the five Best Film nominees from 2009 (which were: Avatar, An Education, The Hurt Locker, Precious, and Up in the Air). It's becoming increasingly popular to create stylized posters like this and we've seen some great ones recently (like the Quentin Tarantino series). But these posters are incredible, take a look below!

Precious BAFTA Poster  Up in the Air BAFTA Poster

The Hurt Locker BAFTA Poster

Along the left side of each it says Orange British Academy Film Awards in 2010. I owe credit to In Contention for first discovering these. However, the images above all come from Tavis Coburn's portfolio on the Dutch Uncle website. Guy Lodge is right about one thing - these are definitely a lot better than the fairly unimpressive official Oscar poster for this year. I especially love the poster for An Education (on the top row right side), it just looks totally gorgeous and it's also perfectly representative of the movie itself. Now if only Duncan Jones' Moon had received a nomination, I would've loved to see how that poster would've looked!

    The precious one makes her look fat.

    She is fat. An Education fits best because it takes place in a time when these types of posters were common. I like them all though.

    Some of the coolest retro posters i've seen in a long time! But... Why in the "Up in the air" poster, George Clooney seems to have the urgent need of some Preparation H?? That walk is not right at all! It's unnatural!! haha

    Great posters!!! I like the Hurt Locker one as well. Makes me think of 2001:A Space Odyssey. I agree w/ #6, looks like George is in dire need of a Men's room....

    I thought "The Hurt Locker" was "Moon" before I opened the link. And the person playing soccer in the reflection of the helmet cracked me up.
