I recently wrote about an unusual Italian ‘Battle For the Planet of the Apes’ movie poster. This got me thinking that there might be other films that have received similar treatment and so a search was started to find more oddities. Believe me when I say that what I found was a treasure trove of weirdness…
For example, the poster above is for the 1987 ‘Aliens’ – but you had guessed that, right? Those eyes weren’t fooling you?!
‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ received an impressive montage of images, replete with multiple swastika’s! And ‘Return of the Jedi’ has a new hero in C-3PO, where the golden protocol droid takes centre stage in some very nice artwork!
My favourite from those I browsed through has to be this ‘Harry and the Hendersons’ poster. Peace Man!
These posters and many many more can be found over at PolishPosters.com.
I am really enjoying the recent concept work of Darren “Daz” Tibbles. His Mission: Impossible the Animated Series, looks like something I would like, but his concept poster for a Danger Mouse Motion Picture, really hit home for me. I am a big fan of Danger Mouse and I do believe that seeing this on the wall of my local cinema would make me jump up and down with happiness. That might not happen, but I would certainly settle for Darren’s version for displaying on my wall at home.

I am a fan of Children of the Damned, I could even see myself hanging a movie poster of the poster up on my office. But I am pretty sure though, that with prolonged viewing/staring, this poster would only give me nightmares.
Caught this on the Disney Channel this afternoon, it had been far too long since I last joined Bernard and Miss Bianca in their rescue of Penny.
I remember standing in the lobby staring at this poster back in my youth. Thanks as always to IMP Awards for this wonderful scan of the theatrical poster from back in 1977.
Sometimes simpler is more powerful.
