New Imagining's of Movie Posters...notions and thoughts
Hi all - some of you may know me of old - I have been round a bit.
I wanted to ask the gentle folk on this forum about your thoughts on the recent re imaginings of Movie posters?
Movie posters are slowly becoming a thing of the past being replaced by plasma TV screens in cinemas showing trailers and eventually we are expecting digital poster displays - a USB stick will have a slide show of images in the poster format replacing the paper that we all love.
In recent years we have had a spate of posters by individual artists and printers that are legitimate movie posters issued and used by cinemas in various locations around the world - Castro theater in San Francisco, Alamo Drafthouse in Austin Texas etc.
Here on this forum are poster collectors - your thoughts on such posters and releases?
Personally I like to see new art and re imaginations - if the poster has been used at a theater it is considered legitimate, but do these posters have a place in your collections?
This never happened to the other fella...
