“A Fairy Tale for Troubled Times”
One of the best looking ‘modern’ film posters produced in a long time…Award winning British UK quad film poster for Guillermo Del Toro’s multi award winning (& nominated) dark sci-fi fantasy movie “The Shape of Water”. With beautiful painted artwork by design agency ‘Midnight Oil’ this design is perfectly suited to the landscape format of the British quad. A whole range of green and blue colour tones is used with the background incredibly detailed and made up the ‘Creature’s’ scales; this is very subtle and only evident on close inspection. This originally rolled (as issued) example displays and presents to excellent effect with stunning graphics and represents a truly impressive piece of collectable original film movie memorabilia.
Trivia: The creature design is heavily inspired by the film Creature from the Black Lagoon(1954). Michael Shannon’s character says they picked it up in the Amazon river in South America, which is the setting of The Creature from the film.
