  1. The name’s Plissken!

  2. Nice. The foreign posters for Escape are pretty choice as well, though I really dig the simplicity of paperback cover’s design: http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ltg93pLz8e1qk03yyo1_500.jpg

  3. Epic poster for an epic film! The look for the character of Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid games I believe.

    Shame about the sequel ‘Escape to LA’ though… can never get that awful surfing scene out of my head.

    This is great. Jeremy, that cover looks a lot like the Serpico paperback: http://retrobookshop.com/images/products/display/103028.jpg

  5. This needs to be followed by Big Trouble In Little China, because Jack Burton told you so.
