I have several Japanese Godzilla posters. Reprints of the classics, and originals from the 90's. Here's a few of my favotites:







I also have an original 1 sheet from the 70's Star Wars ripoff "Message from Space"

Yeah, A lot of the time you can't even tell what movie the poster is for. They are so surreal and abstract.

I love the use of red and the shading in the poster you posted.

I don't have any pictures of them up, but here are a few I own.







They're not all original but I honestly don't care as I just want the image on the wall. I'd love to get the Aladdin teaser but it goes for more than I'm willing to pay for a poster.

God damn I love that advance Unforgiven poster, I need that like Nichole Ritchie needs 2 pounds.

I have a few framed, though I would like to get some more framed and hung.

I have always liked this poster, first it says "Give Em Hell John" and the imagery is just plain cool. Some guy standing over a body, John getting ready to enter a building. Just plain cool.

I did a google search for that Iron Monkey poster I thought I had saw, all I ended up seeing was this:



Still would be cool to own that one though.

These are just the ones I have framed. I also have a 10x5 vinyl Return of the King banner in my bedroom to round out the nerd den. The Dark Knight one keeps getting creepier and creepier.

This is the only poster I have, mostly because I bought it framed. I just really like it: I think it captures the love story, the scope of the ship, and the sense of doom with the tagline.

I broke down and bought it a couple years back. Amazing poster. There are only two others I want more and both are outrageously priced:


As of now I have the following in my daughter's room(in addition to the Aladdin above):

Any place that does reprints of Polish posters? I don't really need an original and probably can't afford one anyways.

Why? Are you a big fan of the film itself? The artwork doesn't seem especially inspired.

And to stop it before it starts, I'm no Whedon-hater. Just curious.

cheers,

Well, it is better than looking at a blank wall of wood paneling.

I don't have them all as nicely framed as I would like but they look good in my movie room.

What site do you buy your posters at? I would like to do a collage on my wall of my favorite movies, but I am having a hard time finding cheap posters.

Thanks

The Disney teasers are all great. There is a Hunchback of Notre Dame poster that is particularly cool. I keep checking ebay, hopefully I'll eventually get that Aladdin poster.

Have you tried ebay? While not the best place for originals, the 11x17 posters are usually pretty easy to come by on there for fairly decent prices.

Also, allposters.com has a big selection of the 11X17" posters for around $15 a piece.

Just broke down this week and ordered three new ones. I have been looking for this Incredibles teaser since the movie came out. The only ones I've ever seen on ebay are posters that have the entire family and one with Edna on it. So I was pretty excited to find this one. Also ordered Cars and Wall-e.



I already have these three on display:


That leaves the following three. TS too busy, TS2 is too minimalistic and Ratatouille isn't very artsy.



Although I just found this French Ratatouille poster, on google, which is kinda cool. Not as sharp as the first six, but better than the last three above. I really like the second one, but I think it only came in bus stop size. If anyone knows where to find the second one, please post a link.
