Movies 2010

What fonts are used in films? We constantly notice exceptional, humorous, and romantic typefaces on movie posters or announcements and wonder which fonts were used in them. Quite often, the film companies themselves produce these letterforms, and use them solely for their own distribution purposes.

However, there are numerous fonts in the vast Linotype Library that appear similar to some of these designs, and which can convey the same mood as the film.

Here is our selection, which we regularly update and expand.
