Escape From New York

Escape From New York Movie Poster


“1997…New York City is now a maximum security prison..Breaking out is impossible..Breaking in is insane”.

Scarce, original 1981 Japanese B2 movie poster for John Carpenter’s quintessential cult 80’s sci-fi actioner “Escape From New York”. This folded (single horizontal fold line) example is presented in original unrestored condition and displays very well with impressive country unique, Japanese artwork presented in a familiar photo-montage style focussing on a Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell ) close up. A true classic 80’s action poster and film, and an extremely collectable piece of cool and desirable original movie memorabilia that is hard to find in this format.

Trivia: Kurt Russell pitched himself hard for the role of Snake Plissken as he was very keen to shake off his Disney image.
