Step 1: Ideas.

Now to start your movie poster, you're gonna need ideas. This is mandatory. 

Note: I didn't have anything down on paper, this idea was on the spot. 

Step 2: Getting Started.

To start off, you're gonna have to start up Photoshop. The version of Photoshop doesn't matter, but I prefer CS5. The movie poster size should be realistic, so 24" by 36" is a good size for one. When picking the background contents, you're gonna want to pick Transparent. 

Step 3: Getting Started 2

The first thing you wanna do is use the paint bucket tool to fill in the picture black. 

Step 4: The Background

The background can be anything you want, but in this case, I chose a city type of background. 

First I started with a finding a city background on Google images. Pick one that you like, and go with it. 

For my background, 5 layers of the background were used. First find a large portion of the picture you like. This should be the structure of the background. Now for the black space, , find parts of the image that will go well with the base structure. Keep doing this until you get something you like. 

Erase to the bottom and the top to make it have that 'fading to black' effect.

Step 5: The Focal Point

The focal point is the most important part of the movie poster.  

The first thing you want to do is find a picture or render that you like. For importing your render, go to file, and use 'place'. This allows you to re size your render, and keep the quality good. Press control + T to free transform, and hold 'shift' to re size the render to appropriate size for the poster.
