Well I think that's what a lot of movie posters lack these days in terms of graphic design elements.
Simplicity is always the best. It makes something look epic, forthcoming, and with a bit of a mystery to make you want to watch the movie to find out.
I think the less you know of a movie (in terms of who's staring in it, what the costumes, special effect look like, et cetera) for a drama movie, it's essential to leave SOME bit of mystery and not always focus on the pretty-face.
No crap. I used to have the Batman poster for the first movie (Keaton). All it had on it was the Bat-Mobile and its specs. My dad had a family owned movie rental shop near his work. After new releases were no longer new, we got the posters.
Shoulda took better care of em. ~shrugs~
On another note: One of my ex GFs had a friend who worked at a movie theater and could get those 6 foot tall indoor movie banners. Needless to say, she never needed wallpaper, and there isn't anything cooler than having a six foot Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas poster.
