Cool Crap : The Mission German Poster


The German poster for Johnnie To's The Mission, as I may have mentioned previously once or twice before, The Mission along with Chungking Express share top spot for my favourite Hong Kong movie. I have tried for years to find an original Hong Kong poster for this film without success. What I have instead is this German one which is quite similar to the HK one. I also have a huge French poster for it which is just the dvd cover from France and a seriously cool Japanese one, which I will post at some point in the future.

Yeah, great poster, what style... A good poster is worth it's weight in gold - I spend ages trying to track down this poster for Kim Ki-duk's 2004 film Samaria, a film I know almost nothing about. I was obsessed !

Dan, like that comment, short and sweet.

BT, Have you seen the movie?

Wes, That's a really great one Wes, the burning question is did you actually manage to track it down?

Wes M said...

Nope, never did ! Anyway, my wife would never have that in the house ! This poster was used for a Korean DVD edition but sadly it's now out of print...

Wes, that's hilarious: if your wife wouldn't approve of that, I'm guessing she doesn't read your blog and hasn't been keeping you company on your Video Nasty journey?

Any hoo, I have the Korean limited edition of the DVD, but that poster only appears in the booklet which accompanies it. Great movie, though...
