One of the great things about Twitter is that it lets filmmakers who dig up fun things share them with the world, even if their movies have been out for years. Such is the case with Brad Bird, who put up a pic of a very cool unreleased Incredibles poster, which you can see below.
Crafted by Robert McGinnis, who has produced iconic imagery for the Bond franchise and Breakfast At Tiffany’s, the image definitely owes something to classic movie posters, with 007 as the clear inspiration. It’s one of those whole-film-in-one-image jobs that you’d want hanging on your wall after you see the movie.
But this hand-painted gem is frankly amazing, especially in an era when truly outstanding film posters are becoming ever more rare.
Yes, before you ask, you can try to buy one on eBay, though given the exposure Bird has provided, the price is going up and several copies have already been sold. If you’re interested, hie thee to the Bay of e.
As for Bird, he’s working away preparing to shoot mysterious sci-fi pic 1952 for Disney based on Damon Lindelof’s script. The film recently scored a US release date of December 19, 2014.
