More Fantastic Neon Movie Ads You'll Wish Were Real

More Fantastic Neon Movie Ads You'll Wish Were Real

Jul 13, 2011

Well, they're real in the sense that you can see miniature versions below, but how cool would it be if studios actually made larger versions of these and put them in movie theaters or on the sides of buildings in Times Square? With all the poorly photoshopped craptacular posters arriving online each day, throwing up a nifty neon movie poster may breath some fresh life into movie marketing. We brought you a bunch of other neon movie ads from Mr. Whaite in early June, and now he's back with a whole ton more.  

Check them out below and let us know which ones are your favorite. Hit up Mr. Whaite's website for additional pieces of geeked-out coolness, and encourage him to keep making these so we can obsess over them.


A neon poster for King Kong (1933), complete with Art Deco and a large phallic symbol.
I’ve also added to the neon with some flashing bulbs for this design - After all, he is ‘The Eighth Wonder Of The World’.

A neon poster for Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. BEETLEJUICE!

Everyone’s favourite spidery hero…

Happy Independence Day! Here’s a neon poster for Captain America.
This is similar to my previous Batman neon sign - the villian appropriating the hero’s logo -

A neon poster for The Seven Year Itch.

A neon poster for The Shining.
A neon poster for Inception.
Is it real or is it all a dream?
It’s real.

Jaws was released 36 years ago today and I still won’t get back in the water.
For this design, I initially tried animating the classic Jaws poster with the swimmer and shark. Unfortunately it looked like the girl was swimming on the spot and the shark was chewing gum - not very menacing!
Instead, I’ve gone for a pair of shapely female legs treading water - it evokes a sleazy strip-club neon sign but with added danger. Also, the ripples are a neat link to the previous Spielberg neon poster, Jurassic Park.
