This is the poster of one of my favorite films of (relatively) recent times, Inglourious Basterds. The poster communicates all the necessary information and gives clues as to what the movie could be about.
This poster has a very strong adherence to the grid, placing the most important characters right at the center of the poster. One would notice Brad Pitt and Christoph Waltz along the center of the poster. The placement of the text follows the grid as well. One would notice the slight angle in which the title has been placed. This could perhaps signify their ascent in the movie.
WhatTheFont identified the font as 'Enschede TS Heavy'. This has been used for most of the text. For the main movie title however, a slightly modified version of the same font has been used. The "R" in the title varies from the "R" in the character names.
The colors used are black and red and derivatives of the same colors. This would be to signify blood and nazism.
Shades of gray have also been used.
Negative spaces of the sides of the poster focuses the viewer's attention on the main subjects and the movie title.
