The science fiction genre has produced many fantastic movies. I am sure that many will agree that The Empire Strikes Back and Blade Runner are among the best. Even those who are not diehard sci-fi fans may well agree. Along with these movies came a great deal of fantastic movie posters. Many of the movie posters were just as incredible as the films.
The long overdue sequel to Blade Runner was recently released. Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the ninth big screen Star Wars movie, will be released very soon. This seems like a good time revisit past glories.
In the twenty first century movie posters are no longer as important as they used to be. The movie poster as a marketing tool is not as vital as it once was. The glorious illustrations that once were so prevalent on movie posters has sadly become a lost art. It would seem that more attention is given to the DVD and Blu-ray covers these days.
What a pleasant surprise when I came across the two posters featured above. These posters were not created as marketing tools, but for fans and collectors. I initially saw the Blade Runner poster on a social media site. After discovering the source I found an even more impressive poster for The Empire Strikes Back. I found both posters to be quite effective in portraying various key scenes from the films. I greatly applaud the artist’s creative approach to these posters. Seeing these images makes me yearn for the days when movie poster art was more relevent.
