Blade Runner (1982), poster, US

John Alvin (1948-2008)

Unframed: 60 x 40 in. (152.5 x 101.5 cm)

John Alvin's artwork for Blade Runner is one of the most memorable posters of the era. He cleverly hid his signature vertically in one of the buildings. This size poster was produced for drive-in cinemas and special displays. Alvin's artwork was also used on the small main US poster. However, this piece has far greater impact owing to its size. It was printed on a heavier paper stock and distributed unfolded. Over the years many of these posters have been folded, as they are difficult to store. This particular piece remains in its original unfolded state.

This is a rare sized US poster that does not surface very often, especially in this wonderful condition.

Ridley Scott's 80s sci-fi film has become a true cult classic. Thirty five years on, a sequel (Blade Runner 2049) was made, also starring Harrison Ford and co-written by one the film's original writers, Hampton Fancher.
