Movie Poster Madness!  

…no, none of that nasty photoshop stuff. I mean legitimate movie posters. Movie posters from Poland. Movie posters you couldn’t intentionally make this funny. Movie posters so utterly surreal and misrepresentative, you have to wonder about what appeals to the popular imagination in that country. Weekend At Bernie’s advertised like a David Lynch movie? Gandhi advertised like Altered States? Romancing The Stone looking like a sequel to Friday the 13th? The Muppet Movie looking like a sequel to Pink Floyd’s The Wall? And what the fuck is going on with Trading Places?

Without much more ado…

The Fly

2001: A Space Odyssey

Airplane!

The Blues Brothers

Rosemary’s Baby

Gremlins

Alien

Alien 3

Benji: The Hunted

Apocalypse Now

Crocodile Dundee 2

Back To The Future

Dumbo

Gandhi

The Empire Strikes Back

Young Guns

Young Frankenstein

Weekend At Bernie’s

Trading Places

Superman III

The Birds

The Terminator

Star Wars

Short Circuit

Short Circuit 2

Saturday Night Fever

Romancing The Stone

Revenge Of The Pink Panther

The Muppet Movie

The Last Emperor

Cabaret

Howard The Duck

Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan

I wouldn't say. Most of them are hilarious in the context of the movie but they're also obviously very well thought. Movie posters were considered an art form in our [Eastern European] countries.

Okay, poor choice of words on my part. I do actually admire the, um, imagination displayed in a lot of those posters.

However, I don't think I could apply the phrases "obviously very well thought" or "art form" to the Gremlins and Young Guns ones.

I've got a new thread idea now - for later... new [re: ziggfried]  

Ok, I've just clicked on a few so far. Are these real? Here we are trying to photoshop funny posters and these countries just put them out like this? I've got tears running down my cheeks!

Am I suspended in gaffa?

I'll bet David Lynch himself couldn't have come up with anything as utterly weird-ass as that poster.

I wanna go to Poland and make movie posters. It's as simple as that.

There's a good repository for Polish movie posters here. The Close Encounters one is especially brilliant.

Their drinking water has been laced with acid. It's the only explanation.

These are fuckin' great! I've got quite a few framed film posters and Japanese chirashi already, but I'd sacrifice them all for the chance to have the likes of this adorning my wall:



God's footballer hears the voices of angels
Above the choir at Molineux
