The most valuable movie poster in the world is set to be auctioned in a bankruptcy, according to Hollywood Reporter. The poster is one of only four known remaining from the 1927 release of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis and is in the collection of Kenneth Schacter, which was seized in his Chapter 7 bankruptcy. It set a record for a movie poster of $690,000 when Schacter bought it in 2005. With record prices for key collectibles being made every few months it seems likely that this poster will set a new record as well.
The collection also includes posters from King Kong and The Invisible Man (both from 1933), which are also expected to bring high prices. Schacter was forced into Chapter 7 from Chapter 11 after it was discovered that he was attempting to sell the Metropolis poster for $850,000 after listing it as an asset in the bankruptcy worth $250,000. The judge ruled that he had not been disclosing his full assets and converted the filing to Chapter 7.
Here’s the first promo poster for Marvel Studio’s The Avengers, which Joss Whedon is currently directing and which will open on May 12th. The film features an all-star cast of Marvel superheroes including Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Captain America (Chris Evans), The Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner).
This poster was photographed by Superhero Hype at the Licensing International Expo in Las Vegas, where Marvel unveiled its “Avengers Assemble” movie licensing initiative, a umbrella-themed program which will allow companies to license products based on Marvel Studios’ Thor, as well as the upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger, which debuts on July 22nd, and The Avengers.
AMC has commissioned Drew Struzan, who is famous for his Star Wars, E.T., andIndiana Jones movie posters to create a design celebrating the new AMC series The Walking Dead, which is based on the Image Comic book series written by Robert Kirkman. The posters will be given away (while supplies last) at AMC booth at Comic-Con.
The Walking Dead showrunner Frank Darabont chose Struzan to create the poster, which marks the first time that the famed illustrator has drawn zombies. Darabont told Ain’t It Cool News that, if The Walking Dead remains on the air, AMC will commission a new poster for the San Diego Comic-Con from a different major artist every year.
