8 Bit Movie Poster - The Dark Knight

While we love featuring the work of professional artists through Mondo, sometimes there's nothing better than a fan doing some hard work in their free time to craft some cool movie-inspired artwork. Whether it's something fun like various film alphabets or something crafted completely out of someone's imagination like that faux Walt Disney biopic starring Ryan Gosling, the internet is chock full of cool artwork. Now we have some posters where classic video games and films collide as graphic artist Eric Palmer (via Twitter) has put together 8-bit movie posters for movies like The Matrix, Star Wars and others. See them below!

8-Bit Movie Posters - Kill Bill Vol 1

8-Bit Movie Posters - The Dark Knight

8-Bit Movie Posters - Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

8-Bit Movie Posters - The Matrix

They're pretty simple 8-bit designs, and I would've preferred some more scenery, or maybe even video game levels inspired by the films in question, but I won't complain. Personally, my favorite one is The Matrix because it has the most going on. There are even more of these that we haven't included here for films like Jurassic Park, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and more, all found in his gallery right here on Eric Palmer's Behance site. Cool project. Which ones are your favorite?

Some things no matter how simple never fail to make one smile. These are dare I say cute? I dare. Just cute nostalgia in modern times. Love it.

Wow, these are fantastic! I like 2001, 300 and The Matrix most. Interestingly, the 300 poster reminds me more of Meet the Spartans, lol.

Ugh, I had totally removed Meet the Spartans from my memory and thus by reading your comment you brought back some terrible memories...thnaks a lot man.

I don't know if I can ever forgive you. Forgives!

I stayed the hell away from that one. Will never see it.

 Stay away, far away.

What I dont understand was why you saw that abomination of a "movie" to begin with  :l

 It was an accident! I'll never live it down!

I like the minimalism approach. But I do like the matrix one the best.

Cute. But the titles should be pixelated too.

...and theeere's the Mondo link. Can't get through a week without it. Weekly Mondogasm notwithstanding, these posters are pretty great.
