Official Promo Shots and Key Art for Movies and TV

You've no doubt noticed these kinds of promo shots on Netflix, Hulu, or similar. They're clearly official promo shots of the whole cast, posing.

Certainly, you can loosely find these images over a Google image search and grab them from other publications (and while in most cases that might be fair use, is a little sloppy).

So, is there an official term for these kinds of shots and is there a public database somewhere with the official, raw images, or are these held privately by the studios and only shared with companies and the media?

Thanks

I think I've found the best public resource available for the kind of images I'm looking for.

Not sure if it's an industry standard, but this site has coined the images as "Backdrops".

See: https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/1104-mad-men/images/backdrops

This is a perfect example of the kinds of images I was looking for.
