I'm with you... I'm surprised that the regular is such a low number, lower even.

40!?!? How many seats does the theater hold?

This is probably a stupid question, but does the edition size have something to do with likeness/licensing rights? Is the poster officially licensed or does doing the tiny edition relieve some of the liability associated with selling a poster without likeness/licensing rights?

I like the idea conceptually, but I just wish he would have drawn a new image of them or at least not traced the most identifiable image I can think of for the movie. He's an excellent illustrator so I wish he would have chosen to do that. If the argument is that he wanted to use the most identifiable image for the movie, then he should have really played on the window reflection and actually flipped the image. I think that would have been awesome in its own right. I reflected it for a visual of what i mean.

Then you'd have people complaining that it's not accurate. :wink:

It does a great job of evoking emotion, even with an image we've seen in some capacity, so cheers to Matt on that.

Beautiful poster. Prefer the english title, but thats a silly edition size.

Probably too similar to the Alice X Zhang to hang them both anyway. Good luck to those going for it.

I'd assume its licensed, hasnt Matt talked about not doing unlicensed work anymore?

Does the variant missing the full credits bothers anyone else?

Guessing the small run and creditless larger run variant probably contribute to keeping the print above water license-wise.
