  • Big Trouble in Little China Movie Poster

    Big Trouble in Little China

    £1,495.00

    “They told Jack Burton to go to hell…and that’s exactly where he’s going !”

    A very COOL poster and a fantastic example of the supremely talented British film poster artist Brian Bysouth’s work.  (Brilliant interview with Eddie Shannon Film on Paper). This original “Big Trouble in Little China” movie poster has it all; incredible graphics, great detail & amazing colours. It is very rare and one of the scarcest John Carpenter movie posters from the 80’s to find. The original UK quad movie poster offered here is from first year of release, 1986 and displays to excellent effect. Originally rolled (as issued) it is presented in incredible unrestored condition and is the best example of this poster I have ever offered for sale. In true investment grade condition, this genuinely rare cult classic from the Carpenter archives represents an extremely desirable and collectable piece of movie memorabilia.

    Trivia: John Carpenter and Kurt Russell explain on the audio commentary that the test screening was so overwhelmingly positive, that both of them expected it to be a big hit. However, 20th Century Fox put little into promoting the movie, and it ended up being a box-office bomb. In addition, the film was released in the midst of the hype for Aliens (1986), which was released sixteen days afterwards. However, it went on to be a huge cult hit through home video. Carpenter and Russell explained that the reason the studio did little to promote the film, was because they simply didn’t know how to promote it.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Movie Poster

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    £125.00

    “You only get one chance to save the galaxy twice.”

    “Guardians of the Galaxy”… A bizarre assembly of misfits and losers which includes a gun-wielding genetically altered raccoon and a fighting tree creature whose could only speak a single phrase…“I am Groot”. Marvel was taking a chance, but needn’t have worried…Guardians was critical and commercial juggernaut which redefined the super hero genre and direction Marvel was to take. A sequel was obvious & in 2017 “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” was released. Design agency LA have created a stunning all-action, epic poster for the ‘Final Release’ 2017 British UK quad film poster offered here that certainly wins the most colourful poster award featuring an explosion of bright colours and frenetic energy, it is an incredible kinetic looking image. Originally rolled (as issued) this looks and displays to excellent effect, absolutely stunning; the deep red / blue/purple colour range is superb. Guaranteed original this represents a scarce item of modern original collectable movie memorabilia from a truly exciting and cool film franchise. Fantastic to display as is, but if you own a lightbox this is a poster you want to put in it – super stunning when backlit.

    Trivia: The sensor that Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) looks at when detecting the extra-dimensional creature during the opening of the movie is a modified 1977 Mattel handheld “Electronic Football” video game. Selling over one million units, this was one of the hottest items of Christmas 1977. The beep at the beginning is the “touchdown” sound, whilst the other beeps are the sound of the ball moving down the field.

Anything at all?”

    Trivia: Originally skeptical of the project, Sharon Tate’s sister Debra Tate gave the film and Margot’s portrayal of Sharon her blessing after Debra was embraced by Tarantino himself and became aware of how her sister would be represented within the film.
