A guaranteed original U.S. one sheet movie poster from 1986 for Oliver Stone's Vietnam War classic "Platoon", starring Tom Berenger, Willem Dafoe, Charlie Sheen, Forest Whitaker, Francesco Quinn and Johnny Depp.
Written and directed by Stone and based on his own experiences as a two-time recipient of the Purple Heart in Vietnam, this harrowing, highly impactful film would be nominated for seven Academy Awards, winning four, including the 'Best Picture' and 'Best Director' Oscars.
It is dedicated to "... the men who fought and died in the Vietnam War".
This incredible poster shows the powerful image of Sergeant Elias, chased and gunned down by the Viet Cong while his fellow soldiers watch on helplessly from their helicopter. Dafoe was one of two 'Best Supporting Actor' nominees from the film and has said that this scene changed his career.
This is an unusual poster as it is smaller than the standard 27x41 inches of the 1980's one sheet poster. It has also never been folded, also unusual for the time. These posters do not show up very often and this is a superb example.
We only sell guaranteed original movie posters. We do not sell reproductions.
Note: This poster is priced unframed. Photos showing framed and 'in room' images are for illustration only. Please check our hi-res images and the sizing information shown above.
