The ‘Dolby Cinema’ movie poster offered here is considered the rarest and hardest to find of all the posters produced for Marvel’s 2019 billion dollar blockbuster “Captain Marvel”. Designed by creative arts agency LA with photography by Michael Muller this originally rolled (as issued) example looks stunning and displays to superb effect, perfectly suited to this portrait format. With a retro feel and look, Captain Marvel AKA Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) looks truly heroic and takes centre stage in full costume as she strikes across the sky accompanied by a squadron of F-15 jet fighters. Very cool and very collectable this original cinema poster represents a fantastic item of ‘modern’ super-hero movie memorabilia.
Trivia: This was the twenty-first film to be released by Marvel Studios for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the first to have a female lead being released at cinemas on International Women’s Day.…more detail

“After crashing an experimental aircraft, Air Force pilot Carol Danvers is discovered by the Kree and trained as a member of the elite Starforce Military under the command of her mentor Yon-Rogg. Six years later, after escaping to Earth while under attack by the Skrulls, Danvers begins to discover there’s more to her past. With help from S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury, they set out to unravel the truth.”
“Captain Marvel“ had a different style to the basic superhero movie, with less action and fighting and more emotional development each character grew as the movie went on, most notable was Brie Larson‘s Captain Marvel as her character learnt who she was whilst you did as well (although this meant at the start of the film her character had an almost cocky robotic personality). The movie had some great comedy thrown in throughout whilst also having some nice emotional scenes that helped the audience connect with characters. The visual effects were outstanding and this combined with well thought out and engaging action/fight scenes meant the movie had you amazed at each heroic feat that occurs.
Trivia: Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) were digitally de-aged in order for their characters to look like their younger selves, since the movie is set in 1995. This was the first time Marvel did de-aging of characters for an entire movie. They previously used this tactic in Ant-Man (2015), Captain America: Civil War (2016), Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 (2017), and Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), but only for flashback scenes. They also did it to Tony Stark when he was presenting to his college with his parents right before they died.

27 x 41″ printed on paper. This is the most common size of poster, intended to be displayed in a glass “marquee” case. It is the most sought after size by collectors.

41 x 81″ printed on paper. These were printed on two or three separate sheets designed to overlap, few survive. Used for larger advertising spaces, normally posted on walls, perfect for huge movie theatres the drive-in, where people could see them from a distance.
