The Original Movie Posters Blog - ART OF THE MOVIES

  • Tarantino's Favourite Films

    A few days ago we added an original Italian movie poser for Sergio Leone's seminal 1966 Western "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" to our collection of original movie posters.

    Photographing the poster reminded me of a list I had seen a few years ago of Quentin Tarantino's favourite films.

    Guess which one was at the top?
  • The Films We Are Looking Forward To In 2021

    Although the UK is entering another lock-down, there is a chink of light at the end of the (long) tunnel in the form of vaccine roll-outs. So, with our optimistic hat on, here are trailers for the films we are looking forward to seeing later in 2021.

    Stay safe and our very best wishes for the New Year.

  • What To Watch Over Christmas...

    Even with the welcome news of vaccine roll-outs, many of us are living under tiered restrictions, with many cinemas across the country remaining closed.

    For those able and willing to go to a cinema, the big release is Patty Jenkin’s and Gal Gadot’s “Wonder Woman 1984”.

    For those of us remaining at home, streaming is the best way to get some well-needed movie escapism. What are we watching?

  • Breaking News - The Return of Willow Ufgood...

    How many of us remember the adventures of brave Nelwyn dwarf, Willow Ufgood?

    George Lucas and Ron Howard's 1988 fantasy adventure "Willow" introduced us to a magical world where biblical stories intertwined with western mythology to lead an unlikely hero on a difficult and dangerous quest.

    Disney had some exciting Willow related news to share recently...

  • 2020 Film Releases - The Latest News...

    Back in May we updated on the corona impacted release dates for the 2020 blockbusters. A lot has happened since then and it has taken its toll on UK cinemas and movie theatres world-wide.

    Here are the latest published release dates for films originally due for release in 2020...


  • UK Film Streaming Charts for September 2020

    Two months have passed since the reopening of cinemas and the latest UK Cinema Association's attendance figures show that attendance has only grown to 15% of the pre-virus level.

    Let's take a look at what we have been watching instead, safe within our homes, with the Top 10 films streamed in the U.K. in September, with help from our friends at JustWatch...

  • Breaking News - A Trailer for Dune!

    With over 12 million copies sold Frank Herbert's 'Dune' is the best-selling science-fiction novel of all time.

    Despite being a cult favourite, David Lynch's 1984 adaptation disappointed many fans and movie goers.

    It would take a brave director to step up to the plate and give the book a 21st Century movie. Luckily, Denis Villeneuve is some director.

    Due out in December 2020, a new trailer has just been released for 'DUNE' - watch it here!

  • Breaking News - A Brand New Trailer for Bond 25 'No Time To Die'!

    It's here! A brand new trailer for Bond 25 'No Time To Die', now scheduled to hit the big screen in November.

    There is even a new poster design too...


  • Tenet - The First Corona Era Block Buster

    As we published our 'Look Ahead At The 2020 Blockbusters', who could have predicted that cinemas would be closed for five months?

    It probably needs an epic from a major director to encourage us back.

    Who better than Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, Interstellar, Dunkirk, Inception) to tempt us with the first Corona era Blockbuster - TENET!

  • Batman and Wonder Woman - Two Brand New Trailers!

    This weekend DC treated us to two brand new trailers!

    Gal Gadot returns as Diana Prince in 'Wonder Woman 1984' and we get a first glimpse of Robert Pattinson as a rebooted Caped Crusader in 'The Batman'...


  • The Best Bond! What Do You Think?

    James Bond first hit the big-screen in 1961’s ‘Dr. No’. Over the space of forty-nine years and twenty-five films, six men have donned the black tuxedo and answered to the call ‘007’.

    It is perhaps unfair to suggest that one actor is a better personification of Ian Fleming’s super spy. All the same, the Radio Times asked the question and 14,000 readers responded.

    The results are, perhaps, a little surprising…
  • UK Film Streaming - Top 10 for July 2020

    Especially now, movies are as important as ever. We all need some escapism and many of us are getting our film fix at home. Many are even turning a small corner of our home in to a home cinema / theatre.

    But what are we watching?

    We turned to our friends at streaming search engine justwatch to find out...
