  • BLADE Movie Poster



    “Part Man..Part Vampire..All Hero.”

    Beautifully produced and very cool looking. Graphic design agency BLT Communications created some fantastic film poster imagery for Marvel’s super hero horror movie “BLADE”. Based on the cult comic character created by Gene Colan and Marc Wolfman, Wesley Snipes made the role his own in Stephen Norrington’s 1998 production. Moody graphics of the titular hero offset against a ‘blood’ red background this is a memorable and eye-catching piece. Presented in unrestored, original rolled (as issued) condition this British UK quad film poster from original year of release 1998 looks and presents to superb effect and represents a fine piece of very collectable movie memorabilia that would appeal to comic and horror fans alike.

    Trivia: The success of this film, especially since it followed the derided Batman & Robin (1997), is often considered the beginning of the rise of the superhero genre to become dominant in mainstream film.

  • Original Highlander Movie Poster



    “He fought his first battle on the Scottish Highlands in 1536. He will fight his greatest battle on the streets of New York City in 1986. His name is Connor MacLeod. He is immortal.”

    Does exactly what a fantasy movie is supposed to do! It lets your imagination run away with you. The Queen soundtrack (like their earlier Flash Gordon) is fantastic. Sean Connery is of course ‘Sean Connery’ & wonderful in his part with Christopher Lambert perfectly cast as the untrained Immortal Connor MacLeod. Like many ‘cult’ films it received a lukewarm reception (& that’s being kind) on its initial release resulting in very limited availability of the merchandising used to promote it especially the film posters. Offered here is a scarce one-sheet, unrestored, original country of origin (UK) film poster for Russell Mulcahy’s 1986 fantasy adventure “Highlander”. This superb originally frolled (as issued) example has deep, vibrant colours and stunning detailed Brian Bysouth sci-fi imagery. All making for an extremely desirable investment grade condition exceptionally scarce movie poster from a hugely influential movie that spawned numerous sequels, TV series & even a cartoon…One of the coolest poster’s from 1980’s and a fantastic piece of collectable movie memorabilia that has been hand-signed to the front and the reverse by the artist Brian Bysouth.

    Trivia: Queen originally intended to record only one song for this movie, but after viewing footage from the movie, they were inspired to write more. The band members each had a favorite scene and composed songs specifically for them. Brian May wrote “Who Wants to Live Forever” during the cab ride home after seeing the movie, and Roger Taylor used the line “It’s a kind of magic” as the basis for the end title song.
