Only four short days until the new Bond movie opens, and here's a cool YouTube clip that shows a poster from each film in the series (and the film's accompanying theme song) through the years. Some of the early hand-drawn posters are truly things of art, packing detail into the frame and evoking the sex and action much better than a still photo from the flick could ever manage.
When you line them all up like this, a few things become clear. Somewhere around the mid-'80s, the posters started to suck (About the time they abandoned the hand-drawn artwork), but from day one, all the Bond theme songs sucked. But some of those early posters were really amazing.
More cool Bond posters after the jump!
