Notes of what the article ,mentioned:
1) attention, interest, desire and action. Flashy designs are not needed, leading character or interesting plot portrayal.
2) quote “Illustrate but don’t enlighten” Reveal only theme but not the suspense of the movie. ( perfect for suspense or  horror movies)
3)Incentive.
4) Attract non fans. Including named actors is good however  the theme should be there to.
5)consistency
6) Suitable for all formats eg dvds and poster.
7) If it’s a sequel for it to be consistent and relevant.

In conclusion: after viewing the movie posters and tips, plan to incorporate: some mystery, make sure the title is in a contrasting colour and take a portion of  the space of the  poster, think of colour, place the main character in. Looks like having one character  in the poster is the most common, some of the posers have a black vignette might incorporate those elements.
