Tired of today's movies? Wishing they could be a little more like yesterday's?

While none of us can change what appears on the screen, artist Tom Whalen has at least found a way to take us back in time with retro posters that advertise those new movies, reinterpreting them in a modern vintage illustration style.

Whalen has applied the elements of movie posters from '20s, '30s and '40s to more modern films, somehow managing to make us nostalgic for tomorrow.

We've chosen a few of our favorites to share with you, but there are plenty more where these came from. Check them out!
