Poster Terminology

What is a Teaser Poster?

* A Teaser poster is a poster that is issued months before the movie is released, sometimes up to one year before.
Quite often containing very little, such as single pictures or single words, these posters are issued to generate initial hype & interest in the movie.

Examples (from your left to right):
- Die Another Day (2002) US One Sheet Teaser
- Quantum of Solace US One Sheet Teaser

What is an Advance Poster?

* An Advance poster is a poster that is issued usually 2-4 months before the release of a movie.
They are often almost identical to the regular poster, with only an extra line added, such as "Coming Soon" or "This Summer".
