Japanese movie posters of US & European films (1960s – )

There is an ebay seller who seems to specialise in Japanese movie posters of imported films – nothing to add to that really (the link is at the bottom of this post) other than these posters look splendid and I would love some of these on my walls. Here are a selection of my favourites;

Speed Racer Thunder In Carolina

Dirty Harry Magnum Force (aka Dirty Harry 2)


Run Angel Run

Easy Rider

Japanese Movie Posters (1969 – 1992)

I adore poster art, and following the recent Jaws and ‘inspired by’ Jaws posts, TWLB are now looking at Movie Posters from around the world. Having already covered Turkey, and Italy, today the focus is on Japanese Movie poster art. Some of these are truly great – the ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Empire Strikes Back’ art is magnificent, and the ‘An American Werewolf’….and ‘Army Of Darkness’ posters border on insanity. No matter – the Japanese know how to compose a thrilling poster. Note that each movie title links back to its IMDB entry. Also, if anyone has any more examples of Japanese movie poster art, let me know;

The Terminator (1984)

The Italian Job (1969)
