    That rocket looks very similar to the one in Destination Moon

    The second poster has the two astronauts also lol its definitely the same rocket.

    Interesting. The poster @Thunderfinger posted is probably a collage of stuff from various film posters. Some nice Photoshopping going on there.

    That middle space ship is familiar for sure from another movie.
    That space ship definitely looks familiar. Can't figure out where I've seen it before.
    Thematically using Diffring image from The Man who could cheat death works as Weyland in Prometheus seeks immortality.

    Interesting! Looks like the poster art was well thought through.

    I found the ship, see above your last post.

    Great detective work. I love those posters as well.

    That's the one! Looks like the artist might have traced the spaceship from that second poster, applying his/her spin on it.

    I am a fan of 50s and 60s Sci Fi I should really get some of them printed and framed, my movie room could do with a revamp. These are three I would like initially...

    I love this movie incredibly atmospheric.

    Those look really great, @Fire_and_Ice_Returns! Never seen the first one before. Old sci-fi posters really are something special, aren't they. Great compositions, use of colours, etc.

    Haven't watched too many 50's sci-fi movies, but one I have watched, is The Blob:

    Not the most memorable poster perhaps, but I like it.

    They all evoke the time period in which the films were made, 50's paranoia in Sci Fi was tangible. The Blob is good and if my memory serves me it's the great Steve McQueen's earliest film.

    Agree. The posters really much look representative of that period – from striking illustrations to nice hand-lettered typography. The poster from Tarantino's Death Proof also used custom lettering, come to think of it:

    The Blob was McQueen's first feature film, I think.
    Them...


    Interesting! Think I have to find this film. :-)
  • Deathproof poster is great I have the film, I love Grindhouse films and the artwork, Planet Terror was a great poster also.

    The first part of Them is one of the most eerie and atmospheric first acts of any film, it really is good.

    The Planet Terror posters were good too. Really need to rewatch those two films soon.

    Didn't think it would be, but Google Play has Them available! Will definitely check it out once I'm in the mood for some 50's sci-fi.

    The 50's especially was a great era for Sci Fi, tapping into the post war angst. I will try to get a print of Them tomorrow on my day off.

    I should really try to watch more 50's sci-fi. Plenty of films to watch!

    Very well executed, where is this from? Is it supposed to be a Roulette wheel?

    The artist seems to be a guy called "Luke James" or "wengles". This Spectre poster is from his page:

    I saw that CR poster on Reddit about a week back - looks lovely, but sadly doesn't fit with the feel or motif of the film itself whatsoever. That SP one is more fitting, though.

    I like that poster not seen that one before.

    Another Sci Fi classic. I like the film and the poster for its concept.

    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!

    The movie poster for the last Orson Welles masterpiece, thanks to Netlix and fellow Welles collaborators. The holy grail of unfinished movies is finally available. 48 years in the making.

    I'll be so lucky to see it next Monday at a special screening. Can't wait.

    Oh, that is quality artwork right there! Looks like something Jock could have made.

    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.

    The Mondo War of the World poster is striking it really pops with the colours.

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