“Here Comes the Bride”
Quentin Tarantino’s fourth film starred Uma Thurman in perhaps her most famous role as ‘The Bride’ in the martial arts, all-action, ultra violent extravaganza “Kill Bill” (2003). The advance poster here is a country of origin US One-Sheet designed by BLT Communications where the ‘Bride’s’ katana blade is finished with a distinctive silver foil style designed to look like a real sword, The poster is presented in excellent rolled condition and displays extremely well and as Tarantino has such a huge fanbase very desirable and because of a typically low print run very rare. As all Tarantino films are aimed for that more mature 18+ audience the merchandising budget isn’t what you would expect from a general release feature and as such nearly all the posters & promotional items produced are in very low numbers; making his memorabilia very collectable & scarce.
Trivia: According to Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman, the idea for doing “Kill Bill” began during the filming of Pulp Fiction (1994). The two began talking about the kinds of movies that they would like to do, and Quentin said he would like to do a 70’s style kung-fu flick.
