movie poster grain technique

Hey.

A few year back movie studios started getting a grain look to the posters that made the images almost feel like ink drawings. I could never figure out how this was done. It may be that their images were better and they could do this with the film grain itself, but i think its done with a filter.

I couldn't remember any posters that show this off, but here are a couple of close ones.

The Black hawk Down and Beach posters I think use a grain filter that effects the overall image. I've tried various photoshop grain filters but never came close - it might be that i need to duplicate the layer and overlay the grain.

The Gridiron poster looks more like a sharpening of the image.

If any one remembers any posters like I'm describing, please post them to help me explain.

Thanks

Re: movie poster grain technique

Looks like a layer of noise, then adjust transparency and maybe layer mode. It may not be exactly what they are doing but its a place to start.
