Commando Movie Poster

£95.00

“If there’s a mission that no man could survive…then he’s the man for the job.”

“Commando” is the ultimate in cheesy one-liner delivered with comedic aplomb by Schwarzenegger throughout the movie and the feature that really cemented Arnie as a Hollywood action hero. The rare and original Japanese B2 film poster offered here is the ‘Action’ style from first year of release 1985 with Schwarzenegger’s character taking prominence offset against an explosion laden all-action photo montage background in a design that is unique to Japan. Considered a classic by Arnie’s legion of fans & collectors of the 1980’s action genre it is incredibly scarce in this format. Originally rolled (as issued) this beautiful unrestored example displays and presents to excellent effect…Sought after and extremely hard to find in this high grade condition it represents a fine piece of very collectable Arnold Schwarzenegger cinematic movie memorabilia. “Remember Sully when I promised to kill you last?…I lied !”

Trivia: This film came out the same year as the similarly-themed Rambo: First Blood Part II(1985), starring Sylvester Stallone. Both films performed well at the box office, although Stallone’s film was a much bigger hit and cultural/global phenomenon. The fact that Stallone and Schwarzenegger had competing films out in the same year fueled the “Stallone vs. Schwarzenegger” rivalry that went on for years, both with each other and in the media.
