Important Added Info: Note that this is the first time we have auctioned this poster! It features a different image of Stallone punching Lundgren and it is an image only found on a few non-U.S. posters. It is likely a printer's test poster (often referred to as a "printer's proof")! Before a poster was printed in large quantities, the printer would print a limited number of posters as "test" posters. Because they needed to be shown to people at the studio, people in the art department, the stars, etc, they would print a number of test posters and distribute them to these people. Some of them would be fully trimmed, but often they would leave the color chart on the left edge of many of the posters, which added an extra inch to the width of the poster (which explains why the poster measures 27 1/2" x 40 1/4" [70 x 102 cm]). Once these printer's test posters were shown to the various people in a position to "OK" them, the printer would print the full print run of the posters. Not only is a printer's test poster far more rare than a regular poster, but it is also 100% genuine as there is no fear of purchasing a reproduction! Note that this poster has been trimmed and it now measures 27 1/2" x 40 1/4" [70 x 102 cm]. Also note that this is an "international" style one-sheet (meaning it was printed in the U.S. for use in non-U.S. countries). Note the lack of a ratings box and NSS information. Finally, note that this poster was folded at one time but has been laying flat for a long time and will be sent rolled in a tube.

Condition: good. The poster has been trimmed from a larger size (likely, as is the case with many printer's proof posters the large blank borders have been trimmed) and it has a few creases scattered in various areas and it is folded vertically slightly off-center. It has a few creases and tears of varying lengths (generally 1" or less but some are larger) along the right edge that have been repaired with tape from the back. Please see our super-sized image to get a good sense of the condition of this item prior to placing a bid.
