Fan-Made 'Django Unchained' Poster Pays Tribute to Original 'Django'
There's been a solid batch of official posters for Django Unchained, but this fan-made poster just might take the cake. JoBlo got word from artist Federico Mancosu who created a poster that throws back to the original poster for Sergio Corbucci‘s Django from 1966. Aside from the change of the image, the painting style and formatting of the title and credits is duplicated meticulously. Plus if you take a closer look, you can see incredible paintbrush style detail in the images to see just how much hard work went into this creation. Mancosue even went as far as to include the old Columbia Pictures logo and other retro touches. Look!
And here's the excellent comparison shot of the original and new posters shown together:
Mancosu said, "I made this poster last June, but I make it public only today, first I wanted to send a copy to Quentin Tarantino, and this has happened only few days ago. The artwork was created with the intention to developing a poster with the style of the typical Italian sixties posters, and exactly those printed with the size of 33×71 cm (13×28 in), in Italy we call this kind of poster “locandina”; their promotional use was to be displayed in the halls of Italian cinemas. The structure, the lettering and the type of colors, recall the original poster of Sergio Corbucci‘s “Django”, released in 1966." You can't buy this particular poster sadly (though Mancosu sent a copy to Quentin Tarantino) but you can buy more of the artist's work right here.
