Looking back at Japanese posters of the ’70s/early ’80s, graphic designer UMAI_ONIKU_TARO put together retro takes on modern Hollywood blockbusters.

The talented designer put together bold representations of movies like John Wick, Joker, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Blade Runner 2049, Aquaman, District 9, Detective Pikachu and more which all reference the golden era of Japanese poster graphics. Quite different from the poster format of North America, the Japanese style is more focused on establishing primary and secondary characters and the atmosphere of the film as a whole. Additionally, as with the common practice of the ’70s, many of the posters feature Japanese titles that differ vastly from the English titles.

Take a look at the retro Japanese posters for modern Hollywood blockbusters below.
