Color Palettes From Famous Movies Show How Colors Set The Mood Of A Film

Trainspotting (1996) dir. Danny Boyle

Color sets the tone and mood of a film before any of the actors have even uttered a word. Directors Lilly and Lana Wachowski used a green tint in The Matrix (1999) to create a mood palette that was suggestive of the early monochrome computer monitors. Yellow was used in Kill Bill (2003) to depict Uma Thurman’s character’s madness and instability. Romantic comedies use pastel shades like beige, pink and lilac. Sci-fi and cyborg films use shades of blue, grey and green. Teal and orange seem to be the trend in Hollywood nowadays, especially in movie adaptations of graphic novels and comic books.

Highlighting the significance of color in films, Twitter account @CinemaPalettes shares color palettes derived from memorable scenes from famous movies. So far they’ve compiled more than 250 palettes, and yes, they also take requests. Some of these might even give you color ideas for your next design project. Check them out below.
