The movie poster thread

edited July 28 in General Discussion Posts: 5,970
There's a lot of discussion regarding Bond movie posters here (obviously!) - both official posters and fan made ones. While looking at some movie posters online earlier, I though that making a non-Bond movie poster thread might be a good idea. I guess anything can be discussed: books about movie posters, artists, rare posters, your own collection, etc.

________
Just to get things going; I found this trailer on Youtube yesterday. Looks like a book I'll might have a closer look at! The quality of the artwork you see in the trailer is really excellent. It's a shame we don't see artwork like that often.

    Continuing with this: Does anyone know who did this poster for The Hateful Eight? Might be a design studio job, of course.

    Thanks! :-)
    There are some nice posters on the BLT Communications website, like these posters from Inherent Vice:

    One of my favourite posters is for Apocalypse Now (there are various awsome versions), which I used to have on my living room wall as a teenager. I noticed that Kong: Skull Island ripped it off and just found this comparison online.

    Bob Peak made some fantastic movie posters, and Apocalypse Now is maybe the standout one. Interesting rip off that Kong: Skull Island poster. Wonder what the idea was behind that.

    BOND 25 should rip off that Indiana Jones poster.

    The Indiana Jones films all have fantastic posters. There's another film being made, isn't there? I sure hope they don't go in a different style with the poster artwork on that one.

    The first Star Wars poster is still the best, but I really liked the one that was never to be. This teaser made me look forward to the third installment.

    Great posters, guys! I've never seen these before, actually. Who did the artwork for these?

    That's some really gorgeous artworks, @Fire_and_Ice_Returns! I always love seeing alternative movie posters; Mondo has had some great ones available, as well - from the highly detailed ones like the Terminator one you posted above, to the very minimalistic ones, like these two:

    I have seen that Dirty Harry poster before or something similar, I do like minimalist takes on movie images. The T2 posters I would not mind a print of that or the Escape front New York one from the video.

    I have many movie images and posters framed so my wall space is limited lol

    Minimalistic film posters can indeed be very good. Several Hitchcock film posters comes to mind - especially the famous one for Vertigo:

    Vertigo is a great poster I have the CD with that image on, also bought the Hitchcock bluray box set which has a great splash page of the film...

    I posted a few steel plaques on the Superman thread I think it was that thread, when back home I'll post some photos.

    That's the set I have it's great the price has dropped considerably since it was released, highly recommend Hitch made some of his best films with Universal.

    Edited: I have a few more Hitch on Bluray though need to buy many more of his films in this format.

    Greg Hildebrand did the first Star Wars poster. Drew Struzan did REVENGE OF THE JEDI.

    Lucas was asked to change his original title, RETURN OF THE JEDI, because it sounded too weak, and so he did, but changed it back later anyway.

    Thanks for the info, @Thunderfinger! I must admit, I haven't heard about Greg Hildebrandt before. Looking at some artwork of his online now; very impressive stuff!

    The art work for many of Hitchcock films is very good, alas I only have one smaller image of one of his films in a frame. One of my favourite films...

    I like classic black and white movie posters, I have a classic image from Citizen Kane also.

    P. S. Hitch films in my above photo are only The Lady Vanishes to North by Northwest.

    Yes, I understood that. This is something I could have on my wall, framed.

    The central image is bizarre and abstract, looking at a larger image I like the way the cast names etc is part of the stone/rock that the creature is stood on.
