Not posters for Polish movies, but posters for American movies made for their release in Poland. Wow! Many if not most if not all of these are much better than their original American counterparts. I have no idea about who did these, when they were done, if they are still being done, etc., but there is definitely some (as far as I know) untappped talent over there!

I agree! I would love to have some of those for wall-hanging purposes.

Although some of them go a little overboard. Superman III does not deserve a poster that pretty.

They really did like that freaky art work didn't they?

I remember when the Guthrie had a Polish director and they turned A Christmas Carol (which the Guthrie is obligated to do EVERY friggin year) as a post-war apocalypse.

Oh darn.

I also like the fact that the Star Wars poster is of C3PO. Forget the debate over whetehr or not LUke, Darth Vader or Hans Solo is the star of Star Wars - it's the gay robot.

Are you thinking what I am thinking?

What a trove of icon-worthy images
