If Inception were released in the 1950s, who would have starred in it? Can you imagine what the promotional poster would like?

Luckily, you don’t have to. Designer Peter Stults has created a series of posters for modern blockbusters that reimagine them as vintage films with a vintage cast.

Clearly, it’s for a laugh, but there’s something beautiful about these mock posters that transcends their comic value. And though they are obviously less flashy, they come off more magical than today’s sharp, computer-assisted designs.
