jno if you think the Enforcer II was taking liberties with it's Cobra inspired cover, then checkout (or not if you value your time, I remember seeing this back in the late 80s and thought it was pants!) The Executioner Part II..
The Executioner Part II is a story about a vigilante, Vietnam vet and the cop out to arrest him.
A) Note the Rambo: First Blood Part II inspired cover. B) See how to promote the films 'explosive' action scenes, they actually steal images from other films. One of which (possibly both!) is even from First Blood and is clearly of Sly!! C) It's title... There is in fact no Executioner Part 1 related in any way to this film. The title was designed to cash in on the success of the surprise hit The Exterminator.. A film about a Vietnam vet, turned vigilante.
Here a few for one of my favourite films of all time. One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. As usual all weird and wonderful cinema poster originals from around the world...
Due to a run on Ambre Solaire at his corner shop poor Jack has got a proper bad suntan, make no mistake. So bad in fact it's caused him to suffer faulty wiring in his magic fairy light sun hat. Not only that but it's also made his teeth fuse into one big tooth, top and bottom. Ouch! A Polish poster.
There's only one thing crazier than Jack Nicholson. That's right...... 3 Jack Nicholson's!! Being shot in the head with arrows, of course. Czech poster.
This is kinda cool but it doesn't look that much like Jack, more like Arthur Kennedy.. For some reason it reminds me of those white, felt tipped, invisible spy pens you could get as a kid. Hungarian poster.
One Flew Over The Overlook Hotel. Don't remember seeing Christopher Lee, Shelley Duvall, Eugene Victor Tooms or those hulking, rock throwing monster dudes in the Oscar winning movie. Maybe I missed that bit?? Turkish poster.
Some one needs to do a mock up of this poster, removing the words Tehran and replacing it with the word Brexit. and then changing the names and faces of the three leading stars and putting in Teresa May et al. That would work really well as a comedy poster
I haven't seen the film, even though it came out on the 10th of June.. But this poster just goes to show how utterly lazy, cynical and disrespectful of cinema Hollywood has become. They are so far out of ideas in their efforts to milk the audience by feeding them dogsh*t, not only have they re-booted some cr@p old film (sorry but Blade Runner is rubbish!) but they are even trying to market it using cr@p old marketing strategies.
"I say have you seen that new Blade Runner 2 poster? Wow! It makes the film look amazing doesn't it!" Errrrr...... No!
Note: it appears that the movie poster designers in Hollywood have run out of all their other coloured felt tip pens. Above is just one example of hundreds of orange and blue posters to come out of Hollywood. Anyone would think they're trying to brainwash us like they do with fast food outlets when they use the colour red. For gawdsakes Hollywood don't you have one single, original idea left?
The original movie's poster. from 1982. Okay, so we all know Blade Runner is an over-rated, over blown colostomy bag of pretentious fan boy diarrhoea.. But at least the poster wasn't some cookie cutter, knocked-up-in-photoshop-in-5 minutes piece of cr@p like this new one!!
