Saul Bass Best Picture 2014 Nominee Posters

The 86th Academy Awards are this weekend, and we hope you've been paying attention to all our awards coverage throughout the week. As we head into Oscar weekend, Graphic artist Geminianum has put together some pretty cool posters, inspired by the work of Saul Bass, that honor some of this year's Best Picture nominees. While the best ones are for Gravity, 12 Years a Slave and Captain Phillips, I'm not a big fan of the Dallas Buyers Club piece that uses real pictures from the movie (though it's inspired by The Man with the Golden Arm), or The Wolf of Wall Street poster that takes a cue from West Side Story, but cheaply uses the falling Don Draper from the "Mad Men" opening titles. Check out the posters below!

I like them. However I prefer the Gravity poster with Stone in the fetal position...works well with the overall story arc.
