    Batman: The Dark Knight


    “Welcome to a world without rules !”

    Designed by Hive Associates this is a special 3D lenticular poster for Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster superhero movie “Batman: The Dark Knight” and (for the one & only time) Heath Ledger’s show stopping turn as ‘The Joker’. This promotional poster was issued as a gift to VIP attendees and at early press screenings for Nolan’s incredibly successful sequel to Batman Begins. Depending on the viewing angle, you can see either Batman (Christian Bale), Joker (Heath Ledger) or Two-Face (Aaron Eckhart). Presented in dark blue, grey and black tones this is a great looking piece with the gritty dark colours perfectly suiting the subject matter.  Originally flat (as issued) this stunning film poster presents and displays to excellent effect and represents a truly desirable piece of original Batman movie memorabilia from a trilogy that has become one of the most collectable and popular modern movie franchises.

    Trivia: The Joker’s mask during the initial bank robbery is almost exactly the same as the mask worn by Cesar Romero when hijacking a performance of Pagliacci in the original Batman (1966) television series.

  • Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid Movie Poster

    Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid


    “Not that it matters, but most of it is true… You never met a pair like Butch and The Kid.”

    One of the ultimate ‘feel-good’ films (well up until the last two minutes) George Roy Hill’s “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” is much loved and rightly regarded as a true classic of the cinema. This original, super rare special ‘Wanted’ promotion poster is from 1969 and were distributed to children (and a few adults) exclusively in Odeon cinemas, in the weeks prior to the Film’s release with instructions to be placed where they can be seen in the window at home. An actor, dressed as The Sundance Kid (fully dressed up with stetson, gun and spurs) would then tour the area and hand out prizes to anyone that he saw displaying the poster. Designed to resemble a western WANTED poster with photographs of both Newman & Redford this example is offered folded and comes with full details of the promotion and additional photos printed on the back. A very rare survivor of an inspired cinema promotion and a highly collectable piece of movie memorabilia.

    Trivia: According to William Goldman, his screenplay originally was titled “The Sundance Kid and Butch Cassidy.” Steve McQueen and Paul Newman read the script at approximately the same time and agreed to do it, with McQueen playing The Sundance Kid. When McQueen dropped out, the names reversed in the title, as Newman was a superstar.
