2010 Internet Movie Poster Awards Winners

One of our favorites places on the web is, officially known as the Internet Movie Poster Awards website, the "IMDb of movie posters" (my own slogan for them) which collects and archives every official movie poster for every film released… ever. However, as it says right in the site's name, they're also known for their annual awards, where they choose the Best (and Worst) Movie Posters for each year. 2010's winners have been revealed and as always, they've got some fantastic picks and some potentially odd ones as well. We've highlighted the five top categories below, but you can see all the nominees/winners on their site.

Best Movie Poster of 2010 - Rabbit Hole:

Best Teaser Poster of 2010 - Harry Potter 7:

Worst Movie Poster of 2010 - Takers:

We already featured our own Top 10 Best Official Movie Posters from 2010 list with some fantastic top picks as well. There are other poster categories and much more to see on IMPAwards, so head to the 2010 awards page for more. In regards to picking Rabbit Hole, they state that it's "a very intriguing poster that is equally beautiful and disturbing." As for why they chose the Kick-Ass posters over the Scott Pilgrim or Toy Story 3 character sets, they state: "The character posters for Kick-Ass do a great job of introducing us to the various superheroes from the movie and, unlike far too many character posters, we get to actually see them in their environment and not just standing in front of some solid background." Thoughts on the 2010 winners?

    How did Black swan get shut out? That was the best series of posters from a single film I've ever seen!
  • Josh

  • Redguy
    black swan for me, simple yet amazing. and takers the worst poster of 2010? you gotta be joking me, there are far more worse posters out there. anyway..

    Yeah... I agree that Black Swan deserved some attention... but what a beautiful poster is The Rabbit Hole! Buried poster and Let Me In teaser poster are magnificent (not that HP7 is worse) and I think Splice should have won for creepiest. Takers poster is really bad. Just some pics... but they're very important in marketing stuff so...

    I really dig the Inception posters. Even if the movie didnt quite live up to the buzz.

      Didn't quite live up to the buzz??? $823 000 000 box office worldwide, critically acclaimed, 4 Golden Globe nominations (including best picture, best director and best screenplay), DGA, PGA, WGA (you name it) and some oscars to come for sure. I mean, that's enough to get beyond buzz. Maybe it didn't live up to your expectations... that's understandable. I dig the Inception posters too. 😀

      Are you crazy to write that the movie didn't quite live up to the buzz? what were you expecting it to be The New Nightmare on Gotham Street??
  • Caitie
    I think the Due Date poster was worse than the Takers one.
  • samir
    Rabbit Hole poster blew me away. Especially after I saw the movie, because it PERFECTLY captures the film. The emotional highs and lows, the sadness and the humor, the two main characters, and on top of that, it's beautiful. Bravo to whoever made that poster, they/he should get more work.
  • The Kick-Ass character posters were awesome. Much in the vein of the original comic's artistic style.
  • Ryderup
    Not a fan of Photoshop- cut and paste posters, not even Inception. Rabbit Hole was darn nice though.
  • Hit-GirlKicksAss
    YAY! GO KICK-ASS!!! =D
