Barbarella Movie Posters

Original Vintage Movie Posters @ Film/Art Gallery

Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of original  Barbarella vintage movie posters, where we offer a wide range of artwork for one of cinema's ultimate science-fiction films.

Barbarella is a science-fiction film directed by Roger Vadim and released in the year 1968. The film was based on the comic series of the same name by Jean-Claude Forest. The film stars Jane Fonda as Barbarella, a space adventurer who is assigned by the President of Earth to retrieve Dr. Durand Durand, a scientist who has created a weapon that could destroy humanity, from the Tau Ceti planetary system.

Several actresses were approached before Jane Fonda was cast as Barbarella. De Laurentiis' first choice was Virna Lisi, his second was Brigitte Bardot, who was not interested in a sexualized role. De Laurentiis' third choice was Sophia Loren. Fonda was not certain about the film, but Vadim convinced her that science fiction was a rapidly-evolving genre.

Barbarella casts also include John Phillip Law, Marcel Marceau, David Hemmings, Ugo Tognazzi, and Milo O'Shea.

Vadim directed Barbarella after producer Dino De Laurentiis purchased the film rights to the comic series.

The film was very popular in the United Kingdom, where it was the year's second-highest-grossing film. Contemporary film critics praised Barbarella's cinematography and visuals but found its storyline weak in its first few scenes.

Film/Art Gallery's Barbarella movie poster collection also includes a Campy, sexy sci-fi classic poster artwork by Robert McGinnis. A Japanese poster for the classic film is also showcased and a one of a kind First Czech release poster.

Barbarella posters are also found in our science fiction collection also include posters from other films like Star Wars, an American epic space opera media franchise created by George Lucas.

Film/Art Gallery movie posters are original prints and film poster collectibles. These are original movie posters. We do not carry any movie poster reproductions or reprints of any kind.
