About this item

A rare two-sided uncut printer's proof for the Japanese release of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark.' When cut, this sheet would have provided eight Japanese B5 or 'Chirashi' mini posters for use as flyers in cinema lobbies to promote current and future releases. Popular with Japanese collectors, Chirashi often take the form of a miniature replica of the movie's poster, with information printed on the reverse.

Conceived by producer George Lucas and directed by Steven Spielberg in their first collaboration, the spectacular 1981 action-adventure blockbuster 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' starred Harrison Ford as globe-trotting action-hero archeologist Indiana Jones in a quest for the biblical Ark of the Covenant. Created by Lucas as a tribute to the cliff-hanger western and adventure serials of the 30s and 40s, Raiders was a massive box office success, becoming the highest grossing film of 1981 and remaining one of the highest grossing films or all time when adjusted for inflation. Almost universally acclaimed by critics, with The New York Times calling it 'one of the most deliriously funny, ingenious and stylish American adventure movies ever made,' the movie was nominated for eight Academy Awards including Best Picture, winning four for Best Art Direction, Film Editing, Sound, and Visual Effects plus a Special Achievement Award for Sound Effects Editing. Widely regarded as one of the best films in history (Empire magazine ranks it second only to 'The Godfather'), the film spawned a franchise including a prequel, two sequels (with another to follow in 2021), a television series and numerous video games.

Unfolded, not backed. Some creasing to corners and edges. Faint diagonal crease across lower right corner in white margin and full length vertical crease at left edge of artwork. A few small surface scuffs. Image and colours otherwise excellent.
