A Look At The Brilliant And Funny Posters Inspired By Best Picture Nominee ‘Her’

By 02.25.14

Spike Jonze’s wonderful Her has been the focus of way too many video parodies (“It’s like Her but with a dude, so we’re calling it Him! Get it?”). That mad dash for low-hanging fruit has, sadly, taken away from more creative work the film has inspired. Namely, brilliant alternative posters.

With the Oscars fast approaching (and Her up for five awards, including Best Picture), now is a great time to look at some of the best alternative Her posters the web has come up with. Some are playful re-workings of the original, others are parodies infused with obvious pop culture references. And then there are the gorgeous, from-scratch concepts.

First, the original.
