One of my favorite annual traditions of listmaking season is taking some time to celebrate the art — and it is an art — of movie posters. Narrowing down the best films of the year to just 10 favorites is a brutal, painstaking process. Selecting 25 exceptional posters, in comparison, is an act of pure pleasure.

As usual, the key qualifier here is not when the movie was released, but when the poster was released. So if a 2018 film had an incredible poster that was debuted at the end of 2017, it’s ineligible for our list. But a 2019 movie with an incredible poster that just debuted at the end of 2018 would be up for consideration. (And there are several posters that match that description below.)

Without further ado, here’s our list of the best movie posters of 2018 (with a tip of the hat to the invaluable, which is my favorite online resource for movie posters):
