Although I loved Conan The Barbarian when I was a kid, in retrospect I can say with supreme confidence that the movie poster is the best part. The American version of the poster (above) features art by Renato Casaro. The superior European version (directly below) also features art Casaro. The third image I’ve posted is also by Casaro, and is clearly inspired by the movie, but I don’t know if it was ever used for an actual poster.
For this installment of the Movie Poster of the Week we proudly present director Paul Bartel’s brilliant satire, Death Race 2000. What more needs to be said? Below is an Italian version of the poster, with different artwork, but still equally badass (perhaps even slightly more badass).
And one more version, just for good measure.
