40 Greatest Movie Posters
3. Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace (1999)
The Poster: The film might never be included in any other “greatest” lists, but this teaser image of Anakin and his Vader-shadow is a masterclass in appetite-whetting!
Why So Great: It’s everything a teaser poster should be. Short on clutter, big on imagery it’s a clever way of establishing the prequel trilogy’s raison d’etre.
How Representative Of The Movie: Not even remotely. Anakin doesn’t start becoming Vader until Revenge Of The Sith, and the classy restraint of the poster is nowhere to be seen in the film. A picture of Jar-Jar defecating on an original trilogy box-set would be a fairer representation.
Who Would Hang It On Their Wall: As cool as it is, only the staunchest Lucas apologist would hang this up. And even then they’d probably keep it in the attic…

Jeff Bridges: Best Movie Roles
14) The Big Lebowski (1998)
The Role: Jeffrey Lebowski
Why It’s The Best: The defining role of Bridges’ illustrious career, and the one that will mean people forevermore refer to the actor as The Dude.Jeff Says: “That film is such a wonderful, wonderful movie. It’s one of my favourites. I know I’m partial, but even if I wasn’t in the film it would still be one of my favourites. It’s a great movie to watch.
“I mean, every time you see it you see more detail and something that you missed last time. And then there’s these Lebowski fests. I went to one not too long ago and I had my Beatle moment and I got a little band together and played one of these fests.
“You know, played to a sea of Dudes, they’re all dressed up like The Dude… and bowling pins… they went crazy. I think it’s a wonderful thing that happened to Lebowski. When it first came out it wasn’t that successful but it’s gained success each year.”

True Grit: Everything We Know
The last time the Coen brothers attempted a remake, we ended up with Tom  Hanks twiddling his moustache in the distinctly average Ladykillers update. Let’s hope it’s second time lucky then, with Joel and Ethan  having mined another classic from yesteryear in the form of seminal John  Wayne western True Grit.

True Grit trailer debuts online

True Grit, the beloved John Wayne epic practically synonymous with the Western genre was always going to be a difficult sell for the remake treatment.

You can’t bet against the Coen Brothers however; the pair have put any lingering doubts to rest in a haunting, brutal and poetic teaser.
