I realize this is a video store poster and not a theatrical one (was this even released in theatres?) but I picked this up at an antique show last weekend. It was more than I would usually pay for a poster at $25, but I thought it was super cool and had to have it
Anyone else collect movie posters, I pick up a few every once in awhile? This past spring, I went to a yard sale where the guy used to work in a theatre. For $1 each I got the official posters for Wrath of the Titans, Tintin, Hunger Games, as well as a few others. Most I even got 2 different versions of. Sadly they seemed to have already sold the superhero ones like Thor and Green Lantern before I got their.

thats a pretty cool poster for such an awful film. not sure i would say i collect posters but i probably have about 40 ive gathered through the years mostly bands but a few film posters. i have some press kit photos and a few lobby cards from maybe 6 or 8 films as well. i like gang films, like the warriors, lords of flatbush, wanderes, outsiders type stuff. just think the group shots of the gangs look cool.
I'd really like to collect vintage horror and Japanese monster posters, but the small handfull of prints I have bought over the years (mostly Jermaine Rogers) just sit in tubes, so I try to keep my money going towards toys. That 90's Captain America film poster is ridiculous and amazing though.

I worked at a movie theater for almost 6 years. I have tons of posters in my storage unit. My favorites are the re-releases of the old horror movies considering I wasn't able to get the originals when they came out. As far as the Captain America movie from the 90's I agree with 10incher...the movie was pretty bad, but being the Captain America fan that I am I still enjoy watching it.
Ive picked up a few from local fleas before. the Gate 2,Boogens,Cry Rape,Blood Beach,some Shockumentary B&W one, and like 2 others I forgot. I went out of my way to buy a Masters Of The Universe Poster, and Garbage Pail Kids Moie poster. Id buy more if I had a poster rack. lol
