Although I really admire the “Official” Star Wars: The Force Awakens film poster, even though I wish Drew Struzan or Paul Shipper had crafted some original penmanship for it. Thankfully IMAX have released their official poster with a beautiful ‘less is more’ approach featuring Rey and BB-8 against a massive setting Jakku sun. It’s such a beautiful simple and iconic image that evokes the scale in which the Force Awakens IMAX experience will be for us, and I’m so looking forward to seeing it in IMAX 3D on the opening night at 1 minute past midnight on the opening night.
They are also releasing a set of 4 IMAX Film Art Posters, and the first one beautifully returns to the old artwork days of film posters past, with this glorious flowing, almost ‘wood-cut’ style poster by Dan Mumford, again featuring Rey, BB-8 and her speeder set against the massive junkyard of ships from the great Battle of Jakku.
The second Dan Mumford Star wars: The Force Awakens posters has just been released featuring Poe Dameron the T-70 X-Wing Black Squadron.
The third Dan Mumford Star Wars: The Force Awakens posters has just been landed featuring Captain Phasma standing aside the burning remains of Maz Kanata’s castle after the Battle of Takodana
The fourth and final artwork from Dan Mumford’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens ‘IMAX Exclusive’ poster series is of Finn as he prepares to do battle with Kylo Ren in the snowy forest on the Starkiller Base Planet. This poster is bathed in beautiful deep blues to match Finn’s weapon and the glints of Kylo’s red sabre against the fallen tree stump is a beautiful touch.
Dan’s also done another Star Wars poster for the Art Awakens Exhibition called ‘I am a Jedi, Like my father before me”
