    If the photo, or poster or any image is produced by someone else, you need permission to use it. Only public domain images can be used without copyright infringement.

    So no, even though you are providing publicity by reviewing the title, you will need permission to use any images dealing with that movie, book, TV show etc.

    Be sure any images you use or cut and paste or download are clearly indicated as public domain, or royalty free.
