Do you love movie posters, data, and visualizations? Well then you're in for a real treat.

A couple months ago, Vijay Pandurangan posted the Colours in movie posters since 1914 -- an interactive data visualization that shows the way colours have evolved in the fine art of the movie poster throughout the years.
One of first things you'll probably notice is the prevalence of orange and how the increased use of blue has been a steady trend over the last 100 years. Is this due to printing processes evolving? The shift from hand-painting to photography to computers? Shifts in genre popularity? Or perhaps Hollywood has some sort of fine-tuned scientific process they're using (doubt it ;). Unfortunately those are big questions and this was a side project, but regardless, the information Vijay was able to put together is fantastic.
In every sense of the word, Tears of the Black Tiger (Fah talai jone) very well could be the most colorful film ever created.
With its loud acting style, exuberant sets and stunning shots in pastel colours, this Thai cult film is as much a parody as an homage to the Western and the romantic tearjerker.
