The Poles are avid consumers of American cinema, but marketing campaigns have to be tailored to suit their culture, especially after the one for Steel Magnolias resulted in the nationwide looting of florists. Get some sick examples for your own walls, at Polish Movie Posters.
Celebrating their country's "wall & board" art culture, PMP's a crazily well-stocked collection of 2'x3' original posters from local artists, designed for independent film distributors in the so-called "Polish style", which in Hollywood just means totally consensual hot tub sex, cause hey, you're a big director! Highlights:
Boogie Nights: This Picasso-esque representation features a large crowd watching Julianne Moore getting freaky with Mark Wahlberg, with the title placed in the corner, and top billing oddly given to Luis Guzman, explaining why he's known in Poland as The Bone Collector.
The Blues Brothers: A cartoonishly limbed Elwood and Jake dancing in the foreground surrounded by the bubble-lettered names of the extensive cast, from Calloway, to Fisher, to Spielberg, to Candy, which must have been difficult to keep on the set, what with Belushi.
The Big Lebowski: A busy, notebook-esque work centered around a gigantic, boxy Donny busting up a Corvette, character appearances include Maude and Donny in the lower corners, and Sam Elliot holding a beer in one hand and wielding a pistol in the other, typical, as The Stranger's always down to fire off your gun.
There're also a slew of original posters promoting attractions, from theater to upcoming concerts, though if they don't change the marketing strategy, there're sure to be nationwide Dan abductions when Steely comes to town.
