  • American-Gigolo-Movie-Poster

    American Gigolo

    £45.00

    “His business is pleasure !”

    After the huge success in 1982 for the Oscar winning “An Officer and a Gentleman”, Richard Gere was a global superstar and the most bankable male actor at the box office. Paramount Pictures were quick to exploit his success and re-released (even though it was only originally released in 1980) Paul Schrader’s “American Gigolo” with the knowing tagline… “In American Gigolo Richard Gere is neither an Officer nor a Gentleman” which was adapted to run alongside the familiar imagery of the original 1980 UK quad film poster. Rare in this style, it is actually a very effective design. Originally folded (as issued) this unrestored example presents and displays very well and represents a highly desirable piece of original movie memorabilia for one of the most stylish films of the 80’s.

    TRIVIA…This movie represented the Hollywood breakthrough of leading clothes designer GIORGIO ARMANI who provided the stylish clothes for Richard Gere’s well dressed male escort.

    “When Smokey Sings” the hit 1987 song by ABC was inspired by the scene in the movie where Richard Gere is seen meticulously choosing what clothes to wear out.

  • An American Werewolf in London Movie Poster

    An American Werewolf in London

    £195.00

    “Stay on the road…Keep clear of the moors…Beware the moon, lads.”

    John Landis’ “An American Werewolf in London” is one of the best werewolf movies ever made, full of dark humour and gory thrills. As most people know, this has one of the best human/werewolf transformation scenes in cinematic history. Unlike modern monster/horror movies of today, this film has no CGI or computer-aided special effects; what you see on the screen is a physical production made piece for which Rick Baker won the Oscar. This 2022 signed Artist Proof (AP) alternative movie poster by Matt Ferguson and Vice Press is a proper horror poster as David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne) are shown walking through the moonlit moors unaware as a pool of blood forms at their feet. Ferguson has cleverly incorporated the piercing eyes of the werewolf into the title design which is finished (as is the pool of blood) in bright red and printed with a spot ink varnish for a truly dramatic effect. Presented in excellent condition this rolled (as issued) example displays superbly and is an impressive piece of horror poster artwork and is a hugely desirable alternative movie poster. “I vote we go back to the Slaughtered Lamb”

    Trivia: Rick Baker claimed to have been disappointed by the amount of time spent shooting the face changing shot for the transformation after having spent months working on the mechanism. John Landis only required one take lasting about seven seconds. Baker felt he had wasted his time until seeing the film with an audience that applauded during that one seven second shot.

  • Apocalypse Now Movie Poster

    £175.00

    “You don’t talk to Colonel Kurtz…You listen to him”

Coppola, along with editor/longtime collaborator Walter Murch, personally supervised the restoration for this landmark release which features for the first time in landscape format the iconic ‘helicopters in the sunset’ artwork created by Bob Peak for the original 1979 campaign. There is no doubting that this sweeping vista widescreen style perfectly suits the UK quad format. Printed on a heavier than usual stock paper the colour saturation is superb allowing the burnt orange sunset to really pop, add to this the addition of gold title and text detailing it is a poster that doesn’t fail to impress. Totally unrestored and rolled (as issued) this presents and displays to excellent effect with only minimal handling wear. A truly beautiful piece of original movie memorabilia from one of the finest film’s ever made…“Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that”

    Trivia: Francis Ford Coppola believed that Marlon Brando was familiar with Joseph Conrad‘s “Heart of Darkness”, the novel on which the movie is based. When Brando arrived on-set, Coppola was horrified to find that Brando had never read “Heart of Darkness”, did not know his lines, and had become extremely overweight. Kurtz had always been written as tall and very thin. After some panic, Coppola decided to film the 5’10” Brando as if he was a massively built, 6’5″ brute to explain his size, and kept the camera away from his huge belly.

  • Army of Darkness: Evil Dead 3 Alternative Movie Poster

    Army of Darkness: Evil Dead 3

    £425.00

    “Trapped in time. Surrounded by evil. Low on gas”

    Sam Raimi’s “Army of Darkness: Evil Dead 3” is not as rooted in the horror genre as its predecessors – although it has its horrific elements, it seems to be first and foremost a dark fantasy comedy – with lots of one-liners and slapstick and gore. It’s kind of a delirious combination of horror, comedy, fantasy, action, and adventure, but it’s definitely the horror element that comes across in this 2017 alternative movie poster from Graham Humphreys. The medieval dead and undead never looked scarier and are out in full force as the hero from the previous two instalments – Ash (Bruce Campbell) cuts a worried looking figure. Originally rolled (as issued) the example offered here is truly exceptional; This limited edition it has been signed by Humphreys and hand-numbered #48/100 and displays and presents to excellent effect with amazing imagery and deep, rich colours. The horror ‘fan-boy’ love for Sam Raimi & Bruce Campbell is well deserved with related memorabilia much sought after, making this a hugely collectable piece.

    Trivia: Released in Japan as “Captain Supermarket”.

  • Basic Instinct Movie Poster

    Basic Instinct

    £150.00

    “I’d have to be pretty stupid to write a book about killing and then kill him the way I described in my book. I’d be announcing myself as the killer. I’m not stupid.”

    “The Legend Ends”

    Posters for Christopher Nolan’s Batman franchise have always been of the highest quality and Ignition Print have certainly not disappointed with this iconic design for the trilogy’s 2012 finale “The Dark Knight Rises”.
