Film Description

James Bond: Skyfall Movie Poster

“The Walther PPK/S has a nine-millimeter short. It’s been coded to your palmprint so only you can fire it. Less of a random killing machine, more of a personal statement”……While I’m certainly no expert or hardcore fan of the Bond films, I’ve seen a fair amount of them and this one is one of the best I’ve seen that doesn’t have Sean Connery in the lead role. I loved “Casino Royale” and I found Quantum of Solace” to be disappointing in a lot of ways, but Skyfall surpassed even Casino Royale in my opinion…Skyfall begins with Bond chasing a man who has a flash drive containing the names of all NATO agents currently undercover in dangerous organisations, but before our favorite agent can get the drive he is accidentally shot by his partner in the field and falls into a river, seemingly to his death. A few months later, MI6 is under fire from the British government for their loss of the drive and the fact that they are seen as old-fashioned in the modern, digital world, while the organization is physically attacked by a mysterious figure from M’s past. Bond returns from his apparent death to get back in action and track the man with the flash drive, which eventually leads him to Silva, the man who is assaulting MI6 and attempting to kill M…Along the way, there’s a ton of great action sequences, character development, humor, and references to classic Bond films. Q, absent from the last two movies, makes a comeback with a 21st century makeover as a cool, quiet computer genius instead of mad gadget-spewing scientist, and Bond’s famous vehicle of choice, the tricked-out Aston Martin, makes a great reappearance. Although the film is long, the pacing is tight, and there’s never a dull moment. Daniel Craig continues to be a great Bond, probably the best after Connery, and Javier Bardem’s performance as Silva marks the character as possibly the greatest villain in the history of the series…Overall, Skyfall really felt like a classic, timeless Bond movie to me and it also just worked as a movie in general. It was exciting, intense, personal, and very well-made; every problem with Quantum of Solace has been completely fixed this time around. If you’re a Bond fan, definitely check this one out. It has just enough of everything to satisfy almost every taste in the 007 spectrum.

Most Popular Poster Types

US Posters

11 x 14″ printed on heavy stock paper. Used as display in theatre lobbies. Originally made in sets of eight. Some sets have a title card, which contains credits and artwork, essentially a mini-poster. The remaining seven cards are coloured photographic credits and poster artwork showing different scenes from the movie.

14 x 22″ printed on heavy stock paper with the top 4-6 inches usually left blank for the local cinema owner to fill in the cinema and the date it was due to play. Largely discontinued during the 1970’s.

22 x 28″ printed on heavy stock paper. The image displayed is normally a smaller version of the main poster, although some do have different artworks and sometimes come in two versions.

14 x 36″ printed on heavy stock paper. Inserts usually have the same artwork as a one sheet. Popular with collectors since they are smaller and easier to frame. Normally come tri folded or rolled.

40 x 60″ printed on heavy stock paper. Rare since they were primarily used for major motion pictures only. Designed to be used outside the theatre, on an easel, normally at a drive-in movie theatre.

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. Since the 1980’s most posters are sent to the theatre rolled and maybe slightly smaller measuring 27″ by 40″ and with the advent of backlit light boxes a growing number of modern movie posters are available double-sided and the more traditional single-sided.

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. From the 1970’s on, three-sheets were sometimes printed in one piece and issued as “international” versions to be used abroad.


30 x 40″ Most common poster size used in the UK. British Quads are horizontal and may have different artwork to the US one sheet. Like a US one sheet they normally come in two versions. Like a US one sheet they are usually supplied single-sided or more commonly now as a double sided poster.

27 X 40″, printed on paper. Very rarely used size.


13 x 28″ six inches shorter than the US insert, very nice size to frame. Italian poster illustrators are some of the best in the industry.

18 x 26″ Glossy, high quality, used as lobby cards in Italy. Size may vary, either vertical or horizontal format. There are also double Photobusta or mini Photobusta.

(DUE): 39 x 55″ This is the standard poster size used in Italy. Italian poster illustrators are some of the best in the industry.

(QUATTRO) 55 x 79″ Very large Italian poster printed in two pieces, often contains very beautiful artwork.

FRENCH Posters

47 x 63″ (GRANDE) or 24 x 33″ (PETITE) French movie posters normally come with different artwork to either the US or the UK. Like the Italian’s some of the artwork is extrememly beautiful.
