Alternative Film Posters


3 of 5 stars
What’s this?

Author Matthew Chojnacki collected two hundred posters from designers in twenty countries, each interpreting famous cult and classic movies. These works are independently generated and not sanctioned by the Hollywood studios that in most cases owns the films. Chojnacki claims “the artwork is essentially in the same vein as music gig (concert) posters, and is the first book to be written on this topic.” The work is certainly as vividly illustrative and frequently muscular as gig posters often are. Some of the winners I spotted:

Die Hard
The Life Aquatic
Maniac Cop 2

Alternative Film Posters: Film Art from the Underground” is due out at the end of October and will be available on Amazon, but you can download a PDF sample now from Chojnacki’s site.
