Whether you are a big fan of his work, or have a passing interest in cinema, “Stanley Kubrick : The Exhibition”, currently on display at London’s Design Museum, is a ‘must see’ show.
We were delighted to see that Kubrick's movie posters feature prominently throughout the show.
2019 is shaping up to be a fantastic year at the movies. From now until mid August, there is a blockbuster release a week, and some great movie posters to go with them.
To whet your appetite, here are all the trailers for our pick of the big Summer hits...
In a previous post to the Original Movie Posters Blog, we looked at the major movie poster artists of the late twentieth century. In this, we take our first deep dive in to the work of one of those legends.
To kick off, "the father of the modern movie poster", Robert "Bob" Peak.
Together with a short bio, we include every movie poster by Bob Peak that we are aware of...
2019 is shaping up to be a cinema / movie theatre classic.
We have the Avengers currently breaking global box office records. In December we have the final chapter of the 'Skywalker Saga'.
Between the two we have 'Joker' which, even from the single trailer yet released, looks set to be a classic.
But, coolest film release of the year will probably go to Quentin Tarantino...
In the days of Netflix, Amazon Prime and Apple iTunes we can choose from thousands of movies in a few seconds. But, we live in an age of cinematic universes, re-boots, sequels, prequels, spin-offs and TV tie-ins, it can be bewildering to work out how things actually fit together.
Which ones should you watch first? Especially when the order films are released in, isn’t necessarily the order they run in.
So, in our “In the Order You Should Watch Them…” series of blog posts, we are going to paint a simple picture and provide a bit of background. The rest, well, that’s up to you. Perhaps you’ll watch them backwards, maybe that’s just how you roll…
This week, the Marvel 'Infinity Saga' films.
Perhaps aptly for a blog that focusses on Original Movie Posters, we are well aware that a picture paints a thousand words.
So, in this and the next few posts in the series, we are providing free Infographics on the movie poster formats from each of the main movie poster producing countries.
In this, the first Infographics post, we cover posters from the United States.
The 11th - 15th April sees the 2019 'Star Wars Celebration' hit Chicago.
At 11:00 local time, director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy joined the main stage for the 'Episode IX panel'.
What did they show us? Take a look inside...
So, here we are two weeks out from the most hotly anticipated film of 2019, Marvel's "Avengers : Endgame"!
Yesterday Marvel released the final trailer for the film, so, we thought we should gather them all together.
Here they are in the order they were released. Enjoy and get your tickets booked for the 26th!
Our mission is to get more original movie posters on to your walls. We love coming across examples showing how fantastic they can look in a stylish home.
This bright and airy room for relaxing shows how a home-cinema experience can be delivered without the need for a dedicated room...
At a time when movies are dominated by the back-story of super-heroes, it is exciting to hear of a film that focuses on an equally famous villain.
The stunning teaser trailer (released yesterday) for D.C.'s "Joker" promises a film of depth that shows us how a normal man (played by Joaquin Phoenix) can become one of the world's greatest villains.
Watch it here!
If you are looking at old movie posters, you will sometimes come across the term ‘a snipe’.
In the context of movie posters, it’s not a type of wading bird or a sly comment, but, a piece of paper that has been stuck on to the poster, sometime after the poster was printed.
There are a few reasons that might be done. Within this blog post we take a look at a few of them...
A few days ago we posted our highlights from Sotheby's March 2019 auction of Original Film Posters.
