Schwarzenegger Series

I stumbled across another designer's batch of posters on Tumblr recently, this time for a kick ass series of posters called The Schwarzenegger Series featuring a stylized silhouette version of Arnold's face from five different movies. It's another minimalistic, artistic design, but I love the look and wanted to share them. They were designed by Dan Norris from the UK. In addition to many more (including a badass Alien one) on his Tumblr, the Schwarzenegger ones are: Terminator (1984), The Running Man (1987), Predator (1987), Commando (1985) and Total Recall (1990). Plenty of 80's action classics - check them out below!

You can click on any to be taken back to the original work from Daniel Norris. I'm not sure any of these are printed or available for purchase anywhere yet, but you can inquire with Dan if you wish. He's a great designer with a lot of other awesome artwork and posters on his Tumblr or his Flickr stream if you're interested. My favorite from the Schwarzenegger Series is the Terminator or Total Recall posters, but I also love his Star Wars, American Werewolf in London, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and his colorful Batman series, including The Dark Knight Rises. As always, just great to occasionally feature some great fan art out there.

    The Total Recall one is fantastic.
  • Spider
    All of them are cool and unique in their own way!
  • They're all good, but as I said in previous posts about these type of posters, it's not hard to do them when you've had nearly 20 years since the films were originally released and all the elements in the posters are already iconic and embedded in peoples minds. If they did a poster for a film that isn't out yet, then I'll get excited. But it won't work. Because posters like this never really happen for new films because people want to see photos.

    My favorite is poster is Terminator.  Also, Arnold's best among those titles.
  • Angry Chief
    none of them are particularly good. There are other poster makers out there who do GREAT work. These seem lazy to me.
  • Mouchy
    I love them! Favourites are Terminator and Total Recall.

    A compilation piece might be cool, like a warhol but badass. Should be easy to add: Conan (long hair+that gay headband) True lies (tuxedo+dickibow) Last action hero (red teeshirt) Sixth day (2 Arnies) Twins (an inset Danny Devito silhouette) Junior (the wig from when he was pretending to be a woman)... I think this has stopped being badass

    Geeze that kind makes me want to start an impromptu Ah-nuld marathon tonight:P They're all pretty fantastic but the Predator is pretty dope.
  • Avi
    I don't like them except maybe total recal!

    what a load of crap
  • happy camper
    No Conan... fail... but still nice...
  • Croniccris
    put the total recall one in the middle and now THAT would b a sick poster...
