It takes a lot to grab someone’s attention in our current multitasking-obsessed culture. Agency Preuss und Preuss looked to the annals of cinema for its eye-catching campaign, promoting the book Marilyn: Intimate Exposures. Released just in time for the 50th anniversary of the silver-screen legend’s death, the illustrated volume celebrates Monroe’s beauty through iconic photographs and more. The company came up with a clever ad that brought a little peekaboo and cheesecake to an interactive poster. Modeled after Monroe’s famous film moment over a subway grate in The Seven Year Itch, a flowy skirt and set of gams drew passersby to a pole.

In this latest run-down of the most popular posters on my Movie Poster of the Day Tumblr—covering the last four months of daily posts—I’m not leading off with the number one most liked and reblogged poster (the Hitch-centric Rear Window, below) because that was the main poster in my loquacious posters post a couple of months ago. So I’m starting with the second most popular: a superb retro take on Gravity by artist Peter Stults which was one of a number of alternative takes on the film commissioned by the UK magazine ShortList back in October.
The rest of the top 20, shown in descending order, are a pleasingly eclectic grab bag, with posters from nine different countries and seven different decades. Three of my very favorite recent discoveries appear all in a row: that French La notte, »
