A truly great if severely twisted movie, one of my favorites, and a top notch Rhys Cooper poster to go with it. I Can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this print. I love the octopus behind Dae-su's head, one of the most surreal moments of the film.

I love all three prints also! ;-) Now that an on-sale date has been published, I'll definitely have to make a decision soon. What I can say now is that the prices will be in-line with those of that fine poster publishing outfit that has a rumor thread of 200+ pages in this forum.

A few people might want to ask the seller of these to keep an eye out for a certain person ordering from Germany...

Love the poster, HATE the butchered quote.
"Even though I'm no worst..." is silly and not from the film.
"Even though I'm no better than a beast, don't I have a right to live?" is what the character says in the film. Here's hoping someone catches that before this one gets printed.

Absolutely loved the movie and will most likely buy this when it drops, but that quote is going to bug the crap out of me lol.

Yeah, I'm confused - there has to have been a reason for this.
And since the show already opened, I'm assuming these are already printed.

I noticed this too, my guess is that Rhys was watching a jacked up dubbed version of old boy and this is what the line morphed into????

Here's what I got from the international release, might not be the same as the US one.
Ironically I considered changing it but thought against it as I didn't want Oldboy fans to be offended.

I prefer it as it is, as per the subtitles. This twisted grammar suits the plot much more than the 'Queen's English' would anyway.

This is a great piece of art, I think whatever your views on the quote, it has far more to offer and to focus on than the text. Dae Su is depicted perfectly here, I reckon this image sums up everything about his desperation and confusion. This is a guy who has had his humanity systematically stripped away, I don't think during his incarceration he would have been practicing his 'how now, brown cows'.

Nice work Mr. Cooper, congrats for sticking to your guns on this.
