Are you looking for a poster, or a jpeg?


If you are looking for the actual poster, there are several reputable dealers I can steer you towards. If just the image, you need to know that there are at least a half dozen variants out there. Here are some of the better resolution ones:

If you are looking for the actual poster, they are all over ebay. Look for a double sided 27x40 if you want a genuine one. Expect to pay around $50 for a real one.

I doubt the actual poster is pixilated. I suspect that is a function of the camera and what resolution they are willing to post in an ad. Send a message to the seller and ask.

In the Amazon case those are pictures uploaded by a purchaser, with notes explicitly pointing out and complaining about the pixelation. The quality issues are also mentioned in a couple of the customer reviews.


Having bought reprint posters from another vendor in the past, I definitely believe it. In my case many of the the posters appeared to be printed from digital scans, and the quality was dependent on the scan. For example my Aguirre poster looks pretty good, but my Tideland poster from the same company is heavily pixelated.

Which is sort of what I said. Many of the ebay dealers are legit, but the posters cost more.


Try trolling on Craigslist. Often the theater workers will resell the theater posters for a few extra bucks. You need to pay attention though to find them. I find a search on all for sale for "movie poster" has the best results.


Some active collectors have developed a relationship with the theater for posters. This one is chancy because the posters are considered a perk for underpaid employees. You might be able to find out who snagged it though and offer him/her money for it.


One more time. Turn down one sided posters of recent releases. Most often they are low res ripoffs. 2 sided posters are a lot more difficult to duplicate.
