WAR FILM POSTERS

WAR FILM POSTERS:  The war film was previously typified either by the gung-ho actioner, such as John Wayne in The Green Berets or by the patriotic flag-waver, such as The Battle of Britain or Reach for the Sky.  Since the Viet Nam war, however, the war film genre has also been associated with more thoughtful film making and is often positively anti-war in theme. War films in this latter category include Apocalypse Now, Platoon and Full Metal Jacket.  Collectors of war film posters will find some classic posters in this section as well as some lesser known, scarcities, such as Remember Pearl Harbor.  Also included are more recent war films, such as Saving Private Ryan.  Scroll down for a selection of original posters we have in stock for this category or search our inventory for specific war film titles.  All our war film posters are guaranteed original and, unless stated otherwise, were for the first release of the film.
