A couple years ago, I replaced the backlit title art boxes outside my auditoriums with LED monitors that I display a jpg image of the movie poster. Unfortunately because of head room issues I couldn't turn the monitors sideways to allow me to display the poster as it should be and where its pretty easy to get the images off the web. I've managed to find landscape images here and there but nothing consistent. I'm hoping that someone knows of a website or source to get hi-res movie art images in landscape format. I do use google all the time and type in the movie name and search for images which will usually give me something I can use, but the majority of the time the image is pretty low resolution and doesn't always look great. When I go to the Apple trailer page to download trailers that I use for a different application in my lobby, they always have this great hi-res landscape image for virtually every movie which would be perfect if I knew how to get a copy of it. Anyone know of such a site or source for this?

Ive always used you have to pay to get credits, and each high res download costs a few credits, but it works out as pence and it saves scouring the web trying to find suitable images.

Right click the image on Apple Trailers and select "view background image" (I used Firefox)
