This is an unusual one!

A guaranteed original one sheet movie poster for Richard Donner's fantastic 1978 D.C. Comics super-hero adventure "Superman", starring Christopher Reeve as the Man of Steel.

Reeve was brilliantly cast and played the bumbling Clark Kent as well as he played the super hero. With a budget of $55 million, it was, at the time, the most expensive film ever made. It's stellar cast, including Gene Hackman as a fabulous Lex Luther, and superb special effects (which earned it a special Oscar for Visual Effects) helped it achieve fantastic box office success, spawning three sequels.

This superb single-sided movie poster has us a little stumped. As was usual for the time, the original 1978 posters were 27x41 inches and nearly all were folded. This example is 27x40 inches and unfolded. The print quality is just like the original release, so we think the artwork was printed from the same plates, most probably for a post 1980's re-release of the film. 

The iconic artwork is by movie poster legend Bob Peak and it looks amazing in this unfolded format!

This film gave birth to the super-hero block buster that now dominates a lot of cinema. This image is as iconic as they come.
