Very nice. Really interesting film (the whole series really) with great music my Philip Glass. I think this is some of the best recent work that Kilian Eng has done - you're right that he captures the spirit of the film really well.

I also like that he worked a bit outside of the two more common color palettes that we see from him (Argo/Jodorowsky's Dune/The Dream Loop as examples of one versus The Matrix/Aliens/Silent Running/The Last Wave as the other). This one does resemble the feel of his Fury Road poster but I love the geometry of it. And the emerald green really looks like it pops nicely.

Can I ask where this print came from? Private commission I assume?

Thanks man.

Yeah commission I put together. One of my favorite movies and knew Kilian's style was so well suited for it.

We do have a few spots left if anyone is interested. These are in hand and are shipping soon. Feel free to shoot me a PM.

Fantastic detail. The individual people out in the plaza in front of the skyscrapers... nice.

Was trying to get some black foil to do the black layer just as a fun thing but they couldn't source the paper. Maybe black pearlescent would've worked.

Or might've been interesting with that radiant iridescent paper like that recent set of Slater prints. But I'm sure that stuff ain't cheap.

I dig it just how it is. Colors pop on the white paper. Cool pairing of artist/property. Well done, Kilian/Paul :pint:

Truly an excellent, excellent movie poster. Happy to hear you couldn't find black foil paper, dodged a bullet, almost ruined it. Perfect as is. :pint:
