24X36 – A movie About Movie Posters is Kevin Burke directed documentary about the birth, death, and resurrection of the illustrated movie poster. Film director Joe Dante, artists Orlando Arocena, David Byrd, Matt Tobin and Andrea Alvin are among those featured…
As I go about my days away from home, encountering a movie poster for a film I’m looking forward to seeing has always been a highlight. In fact, it never fails to put a smile on my face. Sadly though, that’s probably the only time when I actually care about movie posters. Even then my interest is never really about the artistry; unless it’s amazing or the opposite extreme.
I want to see this documentary to find out what I may be missing. Perhaps I’ll encounter an illustrated movie poster I just have to have. Since I’m not into comic books either, the likelihood isn’t great; in which case I’ll probably be happy to settle for an education.
Happy Film Loving
