A New (Red) Dawn…

Hollywood remakes another 80s classic. The Outsiders? No. Footloose? Been there, done that. Karate Kid? That’s so two years ago.

Make it a code red, baby! They should’ve kept John Alvin’s one-sheet design from the original. (IMP)

Moon Shots!

No matter where in the world you were this weekend, hopefully you had a chance to check out the supermoon. And nobody liked to go full moon on their movie posters more than Steven Spielberg and ’80s poster design legend, John Alvin!

Old Love.

Most Hollywood movies are all about young love (or anything else they think will score at the box office) — but I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for these ageless romantics.

And don’t forget the timeless Cocoon posters by the legendary illustrator, John Alvin.

Remake Monday: Just Go With It

Although the trailer looks more like a remake of the Blake Edwards’ Bo Derek-starrer, 10, the new Adam Sandler-Jennifer Aniston-Brooklyn Decker movie, Just Go With It, is actually based on the late 1960s Walter Matthau-Goldie Hawn film, Cactus Flower.

By the way, the Cactus Flower one-sheet below was done by Bond designer legend, Robert McGinnis; and the voluptuous 10 by American beauty, John Alvin. (via ImpAwards)

RIP: Blake Edwards

Legendary comedy director (and the husband of Mary Poppins), Blake Edwards, passed away this morning at the age of 88, but left us with plenty to laugh about…

Remake Monday: Fearless!

It’s like a UFC cage match: Mitchum (1962) vs. DeNiro (1991).

And here’s the opening title sequence from Saul Bass

Poster Crush: EatBrie!

EatBrie, the humble home of Thierry Brame’s movie poster collection, is a feast for the eyes. The modest Brame will tell you that his bounty is no big deal, but don’t believe a word of it! Rumored to have the world’s largest stash of Spielberg one-sheets (aside from Mr. Spielberg, I’m sure), Brame’s website breaks down his posters into an easy searchable database by Actors/Actresses, Director, Genre, Country of Origin, Release Date — and, my personal favorite, Last 100 Purchases, where he shows off his most recent mouth-watering buys.

So if you have an insatiable appetite for movie posters, dig into EatBrie — and join his All Poster Forum!

Phantomania!

There’s some fans out there who specialize in Polish movie posters or one-sheets of favorite actors/actresses (e.g., Sophia Loren, Clint Eastwood) — but can you imagine someone who only collects memorabilia from one single movie? Well, that’s just what Ari Kahan does — as The Swan Archives is dedicated to all merchandising related to the 70’s cult film, Phantom of the Paradise, a sci-fi rock/horror opera directed by Brian DePalma (two years before Carrie), and starring Paul Williams, the man who wrote Kermit The Frog’s opus, “The Rainbow Connection”.

If interested in learning more, check out The Swan Archives and the one-sheet artwork by Richard Corben (far right) and interview with poster artist legend, John Alvin, below (poster, top left)…
