The after market for movie posters in general is fairly big, but in the last couple of decades several print and art shops have made a cottage industry out of commissioned movie posters. I have a few that I like and there are several others that I don't have that I think are too expensive, but is anyone else collecting? What posters do you like real or commissioned?

Here are the ones I have:

Star Wars by Paul Mann


The Empire Strikes Back by Paul Mann

Waiting for Paul to do his Return of the Jedi poster. I like the vintage look of his work.


Star Wars by Gabz

The Empire Strikes Back by Gabz

Return of the Jedi by Gaz

I love this one of the Raiders Trilogy by Gabz as well.

I have this original one, among others:


Most of you young whippersnappers won't even know what it is, I expect.

A prize of my collection is a vintage promotional poster for the 1939 New York World’s Fair.

I just moved into a new office and put this one up - appropriate for this thread:



I have others movie posters, but this one is the crown jewel as it's an original
of a movie that is very important to me.

I also have a poster from THE LAST WALTZ hanging up - I just got it last year.
It has been folded since 1978, so it has deep creases, but the color is perfect.
So it's got a weathered look but still looks good.

I have a DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS poster signed by Michael Caine.

I used to have a job making movie posters, and I strangely kept none of them!

This thread is upsetting to me because as a teen I had an AMAZING poster collection, and it all got trashed between my own negligence and parental action.  Feh.  The original Tron poster I miss the most, but MAN would I pay good money to get all of my Marvel Press posters back.

I own no Star Wars (or any movie) posters, but I want this one:


Had a black t-shirt with that on it when I was a kid.
