COLLECTABLES: 'PACIFIC RIM' - POSTERS

Epic Limited-Edition Silkscreen Posters For Connoisseurs

Guillermo del Toro's forthcoming epic monster movie PACIFIC RIM is fast gaining cult status even before the film hits the big screen. It is now also spawning a frenetic cottage industry with dozens of artists and Photoshop enthusiasts pumping out variations of the film's one-sheet. Now Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertinment are looking to tap into that zeitgeist and have officially commissioned Odd City Entertainment to create a series of limited-edition museum-grade posters that are a must have for any avid fan-boy/fan-girl and serious connoisseur of silkscreen movie posters.

The series kicks off with an amazing piece of artwork by Grzegorz Domaradzki (better known as Gabz), a 24x36 silkscreen print of the massive Jaeger robot known as Gipsy Danger. The print runs are facilitated by DL Screenprinting, who have a track record of producing commemorative artwork for the film industry including the 25th anniversary poster for Killer Klowns from Outer Space. The first poster in the series hits July 2nd.

Detail: Gipsy Danger.

Other prints are soon to follow (in no particular order, we are told) by Todd Slater, NE, Gordon Jones and Graham Erwin. The poster comes in three flavors: regular, variant, and metallic (not shown). The "variant" version features golden details on the robot, sky, and cloud formation (see the animated poster GIF below for comparison. Detail of "variant" above).

The posters range in price: $55 / $75 / $275

Says Gabz:

"This is actually the first time I had an opportunity to work on something this big, so I was both excited and slightly overwhelmed at the beginning. Until now, I had worked on movies with plenty of references to be found on the Internet. In this case, I was mainly limited to the first teaser trailer that came out (pretty mind blowing by the way). I focused on Gipsy Danger, but instead of putting him in some type of massive sea battle, which was quite tempting, I proposed something inspired by World War 2 propaganda posters; something where the giant robot symbolizes the last stand of humanity. To better show the scale of the threat, I added a glimpse of the giant Kaiju hidden in the skyline. I’m pleased with the outcome and particularly with my version of the poster title, clearly inspired by Japanese apocalyptic cinema posters."

 


The posters become available for sale on Tuesday, July 2, 2013.
