One of my favorite things to collect are vintage movie posters. You are probably familiar with the iconic images seen on the American posters for movies such as Star Wars and the Terminator, but when films are released in other countries, they also typically get a poster that is more in tune with that country’s audience. Emovieposter.com is currently auctioning off some amazing foreign posters, but here are a few you might really appreciate…
This Italian poster for Star Wars is so different from anything else that was produced for the movie at the time, but I wonder why there’s no Han.
This image for Terminator is way more intimidating than the U.S. poster with Schwarzenegger in his sunglasses:
Man, do I want this Conan poster! It doesn’t really look like Arnold, but who cares.
Now here is a pretty big sandworm from Dune. If you’ve seen the U.S. version, it pretty much blows in comparison to this one.
Hey, that’s not Predator! I’ll take the U.S. version of the Raiders of the Lost Ark poster over this one any day. (Sorry, Drew Struzan!)
Emovieposter.com is one of my favorite places to buy posters. You can bid on any of the posters shown above, and hundreds more, each week. All of their items are guaranteed to be authentic, which makes them really attractive in this day and age.
