I Remember That This RASHOMON Poster Looks Amazing

     June 16, 2009


How can you be a devoted film fan and still show off your love of movies without looking like a child?  Well, you will have to make sacrifices.  There’s really no way to hang up that “Flight of the Navigator” poster in your living room and not come off as a pedophile unless you directed that movie (and even then you got some ‘splaining to do).

The solution: find classic, beloved films and either get the original poster or find some gifted artists’ take on the film and the poster they made for it.  JoBlo stumbled on a giant pile of awesome earlier today by finding artist Kent Williams’ poster for the restoration of  Akira Kurosawa’s “Rashomon” which was released on November 17th, 2008 at the Academy Theater in New York City.

If Williams’ art looks familiar, it may be because he also did the art for the beautiful graphic novel version of Darren Aronofsky’s “The Fountain”.

Check out the full poster after the jump.  I just bought this bad-boy and it’s gonna be classing up my living room once I get framed.  It’s supposed to be a limited run so if you want it, go here to buy it now.  Thanks again to JoBlo for this brilliant catch.
