Rare 1932 Poster For ‘The Mummy’ Expected To Fetch Over $1 Million At Sotheby’s Auction

Inspired by the opening of Tutankhamun’s tomb just a decade earlier, 1932’s The Mummy starring Boris Karloff was one of the three early horror releases for Universal that set the tone for the genre. 

Now an extremely rare movie poster for The Mummy could become the most expensive in the world after it goes up for auction from Sothebys. The auction house expects the poster to fetch anywhere from $1 million to as much as $1.5 million. Just three original posters for The Mummy are believed to still exist. The other two are in the hands of private collectors, including one that’s owned by Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett. This rare original stone lithograph was designed by Universal advertising art director Karoly Groszis and is considered one of the most prized film posters in existence.

The poster for The Mummy last sold at auction for $453,500 in 1997. It was the most expensive movie poster ever sold and held that title until 2014 when a 1927 poster for London After Midnight broke The Mummy’s record selling for $478,000. The current record holder is a 1931 poster for Dracula, which sold for $525,800 last year.

Suntup Editions Announces The Covers Collection Regulators Print By Chris Moore

This beautifully detailed artwork graced the cover of the 1st U.K. edition of The Regulators by Richard Bachman, the “evil twin” pseudonym of Stephen King.

Halloween Poster By Jason Edmiston Available At Halloween: 40 Years of Terror

Halloween by Jason Edmiston
24″x36″ Screen Print
Edition of 325

This is a spiritual successor to his screen print that was created for Mondo back in 2015. In the previous poster, Michael Myers was seen from the perspective of a vulnerable, terrified Laurie Strode about to be attacked. This new poster turns the tables and the point of view, after Laurie stabs The Shape in the eye with a coat hanger, grabs his dropped knife, and prepares to defend herself.

This screen print will debut this weekend, at Halloween: 40 Years of Terror, in Pasadena, CA, October 12-14, 2018. Copies will be available at the Pasadena Convention Center, on Saturday the 13th, and Sunday the 14th, only at Jason’s booth.

New York Comic Con Poster For Halloween Designed By Todd McFarlane

Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions have released a New York Comic Con exclusive poster for Halloween designed by comic book artist Todd McFarlane.

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago. Curtis is joined in the film by Judy Greer who plays Karen Strode, the daughter of Curtis’ character, and Andi Matichak (Orange Is the New Black, Underground) who plays Allyson, the granddaughter of Laurie Strode.

The upcoming sequel film will be ignoring the continuity of all of the sequels in favor of telling its own story. Curtis previously appeared in four films in the series, including the 1978 original, its 1981 sequel, 1998’s Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, and Resurrection.

Master of horror John Carpenter will executive produce and serve as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity). Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film. Green also directs.

The film will hit the theaters on October 19.
