Four Free Movie Fonts

written by: Thursday Bram•edited by: Daniel P. McGoldrick•updated: 11/30/2009

When the opening credits for some movies start scrolling, you can tell instantly what you're watching, without even knowing the name of the show. The easily identified fonts from shows can be perfect if you're working on a desktop publishing project where you need to create a certain feeling.

    Star Jedi

    While Star Jedi isn't a perfect copy of the font used throughout the Star Wars movies, it is very close and can provide you with a touch of the sci-fi classic. The font is actually available in three different version: a solid black typeface, an outlined font, and a black font with an outline. It comes with a full set of both upper and lower case letters, although some of the capital letters can be a little harder to identify. The typeface also offers numerals and some punctuation marks, as well as some dingbats.

    Terminator

    If you need a font that packs a punch, Terminator may fit the bill. Built from the futuristic letters used throughout the Terminator movies, this typeface's slick design is recognizable by any fan. You can use it for projects unrelated to Terminator, though: while the design is futuristic, it is not so unusual that you can't slip it in to your various desktop publishing projects. The font is fairly complete, with a full set of letters and numbers and many punctuation marks. It has a few accented letters, but there are some holes in what the font offers.

    Blade Runner

    Harrison Ford may not be available to work on your project, but you can bring in the Blade Runner font to add something special to your project. While the typeface is not complete — it offers capital letters and numbers, along with a handful of accented letters — it does offer everything you'll need to to use it in a headline or to accent a text with. Considering that long pieces of text set in this particular font would be difficult to read, that's unlikely to be a problem.

    Batman Forever

    The Batman Forever typeface will make any headline stand out: it uses sharp angles to create a dark feeling that went well with the movies. Whether or not your readers recognize the font, it can add a similar feeling to any desktop publishing project. In addition to the solid black typeface, you can download an outlined version of the font. It is fairly complete: beyond the standard letters and numbers, the typeface includes most accented letters and symbols.
