It is not just movies that can create iconic images, but the posters that promote them can also do the same.

Over the years, we have been to some fab artwork, which has become synonymous with that movie and a certain time.

We have already looked at some of the best posters from the noughties, and now we are looking a little further back at the nineties.

- Silence of the Lambs

Hard to believe, but Silence of the Lambs is over twenty years old, but it is still one of the best horror movies of all time.

Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster both won Oscars for their performances as Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling.

And it is Foster who features in this chilling and rather creepy poster for the movie (above)

- Pulp Fiction

The nineties introduced us to director Quentin Tarantino, who turned out to be one of the most unconventional and maverick filmmakers of the decade.

Pulp Fiction was his second feature film of the decade, and the one that really made everyone sit up and take notice.

Uma Thurman, who plays Mia Wallace in the film, takes front and centre stage in this novel cover poster. It remains one of the most iconic film images of the 90s.

- Fight Club

If you were looking for a movie that was packed with intrigue, interesting characters, and plenty of violence, then Fight Club was the movie for you.

Released back 1999, the movie saw David Fincher back in the director's chair, as he brought Chuck Palahniuk's novel to the big screen.

The first rule of Fight Club is: You do not talk about Fight Club. This simple but effective poster really does ram home that message.

- The Usual Suspects

Bryan Singer has come a long way since the release of The Usual Suspects, but this was the film that really put him on the map as a filmmaker in 1995.

Gabriel Byrne, Stephen Baldwin, Benicio Del Toro, Kevin Spacey, Chazz Palminteri, and Pete Postlethwaite made up an impressive cast list: many of them feature in the great poster.

The Usual Suspects remains one of the best crime dramas, and has one of the best movie twists of all time. Did you figure out who Keyser Söze was?

- Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

In 1999, Star Wars fans went into a frenzy when The Phantom Menace hit the big screen - sixteen years after the success of Return of the Jedi.

The movie was set when Anakin Skywalker was a child, and the new franchise was set to follow his fall into darkness.

The new franchise promised much - and the Anakin Skywalker poster really was a great and rather powerful one.

- Unforgiven

Clint Eastwood is one of the most iconic film figures of all time, enjoying success in front of and behind the camera.

In 1992, he juggled both acting and directing duties as be brought Western Unforgiven to the big screen.

Eastwood brought together a fab cast that included Gene Hackman, Morgan Freeman, and Richard Harris, for what is still one of the best movies in this genre.

Eastwood cuts an imposing figure in the poster for the film.

- Jurassic Park

There was no movie bigger and more iconic in the nineties than Jurassic Park, as Steven Spielberg delivered another blockbuster classic.

I don't know about you, but this movie really hasn't dated, with the dinosaurs themselves looking as fantastic today as they did over twenty years ago.

The poster for the movie is quite simple, but the Jurassic Park emblem has become truly iconic.

- American Beauty

Another director who made his feature film debut in the 90s was American Beauty, and he grabbed everyone's attention with American Beauty.

The movie starred Kevin Spacey, Annette Bening, Thora Birch, Mena Suvari, and Chris Cooper, and followed a suburban father who becomes infatuated with his daughter's friend.

The American Beauty is one of the most recognisable from the decade, as well as one of the most striking.

Other great posters from the nineties include The Truman Show, Edward Scissorhands, Reservoir Dogs and The Matrix.
