The magic of movies is that they have the power to transport us to far-off lands—both real and imagined ones. A couple of Wes Anderson’s colorful films take viewers on a journey through India and Eastern Europe, while Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings saga takes us through the mountains of Middle-earth and The Shire (or as we know it, New Zealand).
It is in this spirit that Big Domain, an accommodation platform, created a series of travel posters inspired by the artistic styles of famous film directors. A vibrant poster depicting the “City of Pink”—Jaipur, India—is inspired by The Darjeeling Limited, Anderson’s comedic film about three estranged brothers who reunite to take a train trip through India.
In a similar vein, a poster of Wellington, New Zealand shows the lush countryside where much of The Lord of the Rings was filmed. It’s little surprise that tourism in the country boomed after the films were released, and several tours now cater to fans of the fantasy franchise.
