I don’t know when it happened, but over the last few years, a number of awesome fake movie posters have been created by very talented artists from around the world. If I had the space and the money, I’d own a lot more of them.
The latest fake poster is courtesy of Sam Gilbey (@samgilbey on twitter) and it’s for director Edgar Wright’s Feb 19 showing of Death Wish 3 in London. If you live in or around the city (or you have the money to fly over there), hit the jump to check out the poster and get all the details. As Wright says, “it features a mail order rocket launcher…”
Here are the details:
DEATH WISH 3!
And here’s what Wright wrote about the event followed by the poster:
Here’s some amazing poster art by the very talented Sam Gilbey for my Curzon Soho show on Feb 19th.
Please note that:
1) Bronson is twice as badass in black and white.
2) Osymyso is set to DJ on the night.
You need no further encouragement to come.
Upcoming: Curzon Midnight Movies Feb 19th – Death Wish 3 presented by Edgar Wright
For those jonesing for more Wright Stuff presentations, I offer you a temporary and quite awesome salve.
I haven’t been able to schedule anymore double bills at the Prince Charles due to my quite insane schedule and print availability in the UK of some of my favourite cult items, but…
The good folks at Curzon Soho have asked me to do one of their Midnight Movies so I would like to cordially invite you to a Michael Winner classic.
Now, it’s easy to rag on Michael Winner, but there’s more than a couple of his films that I would applaud. ‘The Mechanic’ is a great 70’s thriller, the original ‘Death Wish’ is strong stuff and my beloved ‘The Sentinel’ is just insane.
But ‘Death Wish 3′ is…is…something else.
Come along on Feb 19th and witness the majesty of this 1985 epic.
It is shot in London doubling for New York…
It features a mail order rocket launcher…
It is the quintessential Cannon Film…
It is DEATH WISH 3. See you there.
