Cinema Posters made the national newspapers this week in the form of an article in the Telegraph, accompanied by an image of a UK cinema poster for 'For Your Eyes Only'. The reason for the coverage, as is often the case, is an upcoming auction at Sotheby's. The auction takes place on 7th September 21 and the full catalogue can be found on Sotheby's website. According to an expert from the auction, while Sean Connery James Bond posters remain the most popular. However, Roger Moore James Bond posters have doubled in value in the last 5 years.

Most Coveted Modern Batman Poster?

By |2021-08-20T16:21:21+01:00August 20, 2021|Categories: Authenticity, Collecting, Investment|

Batman was first seen in the cinema in 1943 and this film was followed by a Batman and Robin movie in 1946. Adam West's Batman arrived on the big screen in 1966 in a movie that was based on the television series. Many readers will remember the tights worn by Batman and Robin and the 'POW', 'BAM', 'SMACK' exclamations that accompanied the fight scenes. Posters for these films are, of course, highly desirable, rare and expensive. In the past 40 years there have been many films beginning with Michael Keaton's 1989 portrayal of Batman in a Tim Burton directed film. [...]

Cinema Posters as Fine Art

By |2021-04-26T11:04:54+01:00April 2, 2021|Categories: Collecting, Investment, Poster Art|

Last week’s blog article on our website about BANKSY got us thinking about the similarities, and differences, between the market for cinema posters and other types of Fine Art. In this article, by answering a series of questions, we compare the two markets. What is Fine Art? The Cambridge Dictionary provides a good definition. Fine Art is drawings, paintings, and sculptures that are admired for their beauty and have no practical use. Are cinema posters considered to be Fine Art? A cinema poster is initially printed for a practical reason – to promote a film. At a later stage when [...]

No Time to Die April 2020 UK Quad Poster

By |2021-04-26T11:04:55+01:00March 2, 2021|Categories: Collecting, Investment, James Bond Posters|

No other poster has attracted as much interest or as many sales in the past 12 months as the No Time to Die April 2020 UK Quad Poster. The scheduled ‘April 2’ release date can be seen on the poster. Uncertainty around the coronavirus pandemic in the UK may have been at its peak at this time. Lockdown in the UK began on 23rd March 20, cinemas were closed, and the release of the movie has been postponed. The historical significance of the delay is of course a major reason why the poster has proved to be so popular. A [...]

While browsing a posters forum this week we found a discussion about this highly significant sale of a cinema poster that took place at a relatively obscure auctioneers in Texas. It indicates that a cinema poster for Fritz Lang’s Metropolis sold at auction on the 18th February 2021 for a hammer price of $1.13m USD. This makes this the most expensive cinema poster to ever sell at an auction. More significantly, it is also the first individual cinema poster to sell at auction for more than $1 million USD. Surprisingly there has been little media coverage of the sale for [...]

We look at 3 of these grail posters and 3 more attainable alternatives that can be purchased on the Cinema Poster Gallery site.
