Why Buy Movie Posters ?
Why Buy Movie Posters ?
This is a question we are often asked, in this blog we will go through some of the reasons why we think you should buy original movie posters…
- Limited Edition
Movie posters are only ever produced in limited numbers. Whilst the same image may be used it may have subtle variations from it being a teaser through to variants produced after the film is released or for special events. Anything that is produced in limited numbers will have collectability. Movie posters produced for specific events will always be amongst the most desirable as numbers produced will be very low.

Terminator special variant produced in 1995 with exclusive event details.
- Look great displayed
The image above represents an example of some that we supplied to a client to use in an entrance lobby and look great up. These are a great conversation starter. The film producers employee teams of professional people to make the image visually pleasing and to draw attention. It just makes sense to take advantage of this professional input.
- Bring the cinema experience home.
Movies are enjoyed by millions the world over. Buying an original Movie Poster lets you bring that experience home with you.
Superhero Movies include Batman, Spider-man , Hulk and more. These are created by the likes of Marvel and DC Comics which have huge followings.
Movie Posters can sometimes be considered controversial due to the content,image or copyright infringements. These are then sometimes withdrawn for this reason and the price on these can sky rocket as these are generally taken back by the film producers and destroyed. People are now much wiser to this and snap them up early. The ones below are examples of some that were considered risky and withdrawn. The movie poster for The Interview is an example of one that was of little interest and inexpensive and then shot up in price, then later came down in price when the movie was re-released with the same artwork.

- Iconic Films and Directors
Movies for many reasons are considered iconic. What can be better than having that iconic artwork in your collection or displayed. Iconic directors include Tarantino. Movies that are considered ahead of their time or significantly different to anything else at the time like Blair Witch will always have a cult following and be very collectible.

- Special Edition Movie Posters
Movie Producers have huge budgets when it comes to promoting movies. They will often produce special posters using expensive techniques. These posters are often very limited and very desirable. This could include Mylar , Lenticular and Punched Plastics as was used for Spiderman 3
