March 2018 Vintage Original Movie Posters
"What's your favorite poster?"
It's one of the questions we get asked the most, and it's difficult to answer: there are so many amazing film posters, who could choose just one? Impossible!
But if we made a list of our top picks, it's safe to say that the Japanese poster for BLOW UP would be near the top. There are a lot of great posters for this film, and many of them feature a variation of the same image - David Hemmings straddling the model Veruschka as he photographs her. But there is something extra special about this Japanese version: the colors, the layout and the mixed use of Japanese characters and English text all work together beautifully. It's a stunning poster, and we're stoked to have it back in stock.
In other news, we're in the final stages of an extraordinary project that we've been working on for the past couple years. We hope to have it ready to launch within the next month, so please stay tuned...
Finally - before we get to the rest of the new acquisitions - we've got to acknowledge Hollywood's biggest night: this Sunday's Oscar ceremony. Along with some wide-open categories, it will be interesting to see how the show - and the stars - address the #MeToo movement and the current political climate. We'll be watching...
In the meantime, why not take a look at some of our posters for past Oscar-winners, including ALL ABOUT EVE - one of the all-time greats. Click on the poster or right here
