Suddenly, banging aliens seems less jingoistic and more just "Shatner being Shatner."
Artist Peter Stults has created an amazing series of re-imagined movie posters that place your favorite cinematic gems in earlier eras, with stars from days past and poster designs to boot. Aside from the fun of imagining these tales with cheesier special effects and picturing different actors in those roles, it's a good reminder that the movies don't actually change that much as time goes by. I'd sit down to watch any of these, because they still seem good (and in many cases better). Here are a few of my favorites, but you can check out the whole set (and other kinds of alternate posters) at Stults' website.
I haven't seen the modern one yet. I'll hold out for time travel, I think.
A film almost as terrifying as the fights he had with Elizabeth Taylor on set!
The theatrical release still sucked, though. Get the Director's Cut.
