Pixar's Top 15 Movie Posters

Pixar comes out with Cars 2 this weekend. They've made consistently beautiful movies and their posters reflect that. Here's what we think are Pixar's 15 best movie posters.

15. Toy Story 2 (1999)

For Pixar's second movie, they brought back the beloved characters from their first, displayed here alongside new characters audiences could be excited about.

14. Monsters Inc. (2001)

A simple, elegant, "buddy-style" poster with soft, appealing background colors.

13. Toy Story 2 (1999)

Pixar brings back these iconic characters now acting playfully together, contrasting with the arguing they did in the first film. The clean, white background gives the characters and text room to breathe.

12. Toy Story 3 (2010)

Once again, Pixar goes with an elegant, simple look with this teaser poster for Toy Story 3. After over a decade since the last Toy Story movie, Pixar teases the audience with an exciting look at Woody.

11. Finding Nemo (2003)

Set against the colorful plants of the ocean, this relaxed poster depicts Marlin taking a break from his usual nervousness with Dory.

10. A Bug's Life (1998)

Pixar boldly comes off their first success, a movie about talking toys, with a movie about talking bugs and this elegant, well-lit poster of Flik showing a little, yet hiding most, as a good teaser should.

9. Toy Story 3 (2010)

Instead of holding back and keeping it simple, Pixar goes all-out on their official Toy Story 3 poster, with a colorful plethora of characters bursting at you. Like #15, this poster sets old characters alongside new ones. At first glance, it may seem too busy and messy, but if you look closely, you'll see that it's actually set in a careful geometric elegance.

8. Finding Nemo (2003)

A poster full of beautiful shades of blue with great symmetry. Bruce's overbearing mug here begs the audience to ask "what happens next?!" -- a question reenforced by the awesomely bad pun at the bottom of the poster.

7. Ratatouille (2007)

This French poster for Ratatouille beautifully depicts Remy's love of cooking and food with great textures and a beautiful Paris backdrop of the Eiffel Tower lit at night.

6. Finding Nemo (2003)

This poster perfectly captures the wonderment of the sea, and Pixar's beautiful and colorful rendering of it in the movie.

5. Cars (2006)

A painterly and quiet, American-feeling background sets the tone for the romance between Lighting McQueen and Sally Carrera in this French poster for Cars.

4. Up (2009)

As bold as the movie itself, this poster reveals nothing about the film except for a house lifted by balloons. The colorful balloons is perfectly contrasted against the blue sky and white clouds. The shadow in the clouds offers a fine detail and the title text is placed in an elegant three-dimensional look, which anticipates Pixar's first 3D movie.

3. Finding Nemo (2003)

Pixar's pink poster for Finding Nemo perfectly show's Dory's wonderment at the gorgeous sea next to Marlin's fright.

2. WALL·E (2008)

Once again, Pixar makes a beautiful French poster that shows not only WALL·E's longing for space, but also for love. The text is sufficiently "robotic" without feeling cold, and the heart isn't too prominent or too weak.

1. Cars 2 (2011)

The Cars 2 triptych poster gets the #1 spot for its sheer scope and attention to detail. It maps out the locations of McQueen's and Mater's globetrotting adventures with a wide range of colors. Pixar also intelligently puts something exciting that wasn't in first movie: flying cars. You can see the poster in full-size here.
