Video games adapted into movies have a shady track record. Adapting movies into minimalist video game posters is a much better idea. Graphic designer Eric Palmer captured the essence of these movies and also has probably played a lot of Mega Man games. Here are 10 minimalist movie posters in 8-bit:
The Dark Knight

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
I love the Power Wand. It’s so bad.
Good Will Hunting
If this were a beat ‘em up game where you go into bars and start fights about whether or not you need to go to college, I’d download it.
The different modes are Easy, Difficult and Chaos.
Press “B” to ask about your stapler. Keep pressing “B!”
Star Wars? As a video game? Impossible!
