Yeah the movie kinda sucked but this alternate poster was much more rare, talks of Bond's older foes and featured a looming Scaramanga in the background and lets face it, he was the best thing about this movie. If you can find an original one of these posters, it will set you back enough to make a nice down payment on a car.
Yeah this movie does show up a lot on my lists, but I don't care. Thats just how much I love it. The Enterprise warping to the rescue under fire by TWO Klingon ships, one of them, the cruiser is one of my favorite Star Trek ships, our trio of heroes in the fire. The antagonist again shown in the background. It just looks cool.
Just look at this poster: Go on, stare upon it's beauty. A monochromiatic poster with a chessy reflection title in a font that isnt appealing of even matching with the movie's mood. There is no picture of a room about a movie that isn't really about a room and our corpse like lead actor glowers down upon you like a Gargoyle. Whats not to love?!
Cause when you are a teen and you see a full size poster of 60's superbabe Uschi Digard in plunging neckline, it stays with you. This entirity of this movie could be about two people in a white room farting on a copy of War and Peace while watching Family Guy on surround sound, eating chipolte and only having our coverchick show up in ONE scene, it wouldn't matter. The poster is great, or at least memorable.
The movie is awesome the poster is too. The crumbling head of Lady Liberty behind them as our anti heros fight there way past the prison's psychotic inmates. The image that graced most of the video cases is similar, but would only show Snake. This one is better.
As much as I love this poster, and I DO. I just noticed a lot of things wrong with it. X wings don't dogfight in this movie, Leia never wore anything black, the whole poster would indicate that this takes place solely on the ice planet and no Lando. Who cares. It's still a cool and beautiful visual.
One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn't belong.....We have handsome Andy Garcia and lovely Geena Davis looking up, patriotic and heroic while Dustin Hoffman is unshaven and slovenly admist the sunrise, and HE is who the movie is about. For a while I loved this movie and I need to see it again.
Another bad Bond movie that gets a cool poster, this time the French version gets the rub since it's far nicer then the largely white poster featuring the same three characters, but movie scenes about on an attractive red and black background which clash beautifully with the beautiful Sophie Marceau, not that Denise Richards is a slouch. Being the French poster, Sophie also is put more in the foreground here too.
