    Aliens (20th Century Fox, 1986). Lenticular Poster (32.5" X 47").
    After the amazing success of James Cameron's sequel to Alien, 20th Century Fox licensed the movie's monsters and plot lines to Granada Studios - an entertainment complex in Manchester, England. The studio wanted an adventure ride based on Aliens and had one created for MotionMaster- essentially a motion simulator synchronized to a five minute film. In order to advertise the ride, Granada Studios had a prototype poster created using the 3D lenticular process. This is one of two posters created by Kodak to "pitch" the concept to Granada. The other copy was given to the company executives in England. For the Alien collector, there may not be a better poster ever created as the Alien Queen from Aliens is depicted in 3D, standing among the blazing fires of a military compound. The poster shows light wear to the corners where there is some minor chipping, rounding and minor separation of the lenticular base. You truly have to see it to believe it and this poster does require a lightbox to display! Very Fine.
