    Description

    Big Trouble in Little China, 127/150 by Drew Struzan (Bottleneck, 1986). Near Mint/Mint. Hand Signed and Numbered Limited Edition Screen Print (36" X 24"; 91.5 X 61 cm).
    Starring Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall, Dennis Dun, James Hong, Victor Wong, Kate Burton, Peter Kwong, Carter Wong, James Pax, Donald Li, Suzee Pai, Chao Li Chi. Directed by John Carpenter. This is the glow-in-the-dark variant edition of the print and is boldly signed by Drew in the lower right of the image.

    Over the last decade and a half, the Alternative Movie Poster has emerged as a cutting-edge collectible with a rapidly growing base of artists, fans, and galleries. Many modern collectors are turning away from the traditional, mass-produced movie posters of decades past and migrating to these high quality, limited-edition prints. Part pop culture and part fine art, these unique reimaginings of cult cinema are much rarer and more beautiful than the offset one sheets churned out for theatrical consumption each year. Some of the most renowned commercial and comic art illustrators of the day are behind these incredible screen and giclée pieces, like the famed Drew Struzan, Bill Sienkiewicz, Roger Kastel, Laurent Durieux, Eric Powell, Tyler Stout, Steve Chorney, Mark "Jock" Simpson, Olly Moss, and many, many more. Adding to the posters' desirability is the fact that they tend to be signed by their artists and are limited to small print runs, numbering from a scant handful of copies to a few hundred prints at most, each a work of art in both design and skilled production. Though Alternative Movie Posters originated as a series of humble online offerings for a niche audience, the medium has continued to gain greater and greater prestige among collectors. New prints will sell out of stock within mere minutes online, while some have their own special debuts at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, San Francisco's Spoke Art Gallery, and such famed events as the San Diego and New York City Comic Cons. Ultimately, these stunning prints are becoming coveted items among movie fans and are sure to play a greater part in the future of the collecting hobby.

    A poster that has never been used or displayed. Only the most minimal signs of handling to the exterior of the poster due to storage are acceptable. The poster is boldly hand signed and numbered in ink in the lower right and comes with a certificate of authenticity from Acme Archives.
