  • Great posters @Thunderfinger and @Fire_and_Ice_Returns!
    Here's a video of The War of the Worlds poster:



    Never seen Silent Running before, but that poster is absolutely fantastic. Very 70's!

    Silent Running has a strong eco message, the film was directed by the legendary Douglas Trumbell who worked on the effects of some of the greatest science fiction films ever made, including 2001: A Space Odyssey, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Blade Runner.

    Not much of a sci-fi guy, but should probably check it out sometime. Do love 70's-films.

    It's worth watching for Bruce Dern he is excellent in Silent Running

    He's an excellent actor. Strangely enough, I haven't seen many films he plays in.

    Horror is a genre that often has great imagination with posters, I remember having this on my wall in the 80's...

    This film always freaked me out as a kid, Q Branch I think was inspired by it for Bond's sun glasses in TWINE.

    @Fire_and_Ice_Returns, you must have heard the cinema legend (real or imagined, and denied by Roger Corman) for the unused scene with Ray Milland dialog capping the shocking finale.

    I just rewatched the ending to recap, that finale still unnerves me, that line you mentioned sounds familiar I must have read about it at some point.

    Great posters, @Thunderfinger and @Fire_and_Ice_Returns! Never seen the poster for, or even heard about X before, actually.

    Nice posters, @Thunderfinger! I like how many old movie posters have this "cut and paste" design like the top one. Really like the colours in that bottom one too. It's a shame we don't see movie posters like that anymore.

    Lovely details! Never seen his artwork before. Would never have guessed that the Jaws poster he talks about in the video was a screen print; didn't even know stuff like that was possible with that printing technique!

    Great posters, @Thunderfinger. That The Invisible Man poster looks very, very dramatic. Great use of contrast.

    It's the first time I have been able to put a name to that art, it really pops with the detail.

    The Invisible Man with Claude Rains is a fantastic film I have it on dvd.

    Saw it once several years ago. Should probably watch it again at some point.

    Cool posters! Would be interesting to watch these films if they were real.

    Bill Shatner would have elevated Avatar that's for sure. I like the old poster take on modern movies.

    Possibly the poster the Lugosi image was taken from.

    Love posters like these. These posters often ends up looking far better than the originals too.

    Good find with the Lugosi source image!

    Not sure where the Avatar poster images are lifted from the Griffin looking monster is probably a Ray Harryhaussen creation.

    Though I remember Bill playing an Indian lol

    The Natalie Wood image I think is from The Searchers

    Another good find! I've seen that John Wayne insert artwork before, I just can't remember which film it is. Same goes for the Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr one.

    In The Netherlands, under the name ''Retro Collection'' Sony going to re-release (Only on dvd, not BD) 23 old (50-60's-70) movies with original coverart.

    Include two movie's with Sean Connery.

    Robin and Marian
    9200000096969027_1.jpg

    The Man Who Would Be King
    9200000096969031_1.jpg

    Of course not worth the money. Only 1 disc releases with some of them with DD 2.0 tracks. There asking € 9,99 each.

    Earlier this year i bough 3 keepcase boxset with three movies on BD for € 9,00, with atleast same extra's as 2 disc dvd. Even as single release you pay 9,99 - 12,99 for BD.

    Might not be worth the money, as you write, @M_Balje - but that's some gorgeous looking covers! Wish they could stay away from using overly Photoshopped artwork and use stuff like this for releases of older movies.
