Teaming with artists from around the world, Universal Pictures and Ignition Print commemorate the November 2 theatrical release of The Man with the Iron Fists with a 16-piece graphic outdoor poster series. The mention of Quentin Tarantino, RZA, and a movie that puts the F-U in KUNG FU was enough to inspire graphic artists worldwide to offer their poster interpretations of the film. The result is a revolutionary collage of beautiful, stylized, provocative art created by a group of designers as varied as the posters themselves. From a retired Japanese woodblock printer, to an indie South African illustrator, to a guy from Detroit who makes band posters with Sharpies—every artist injected his or her unique sensibility and love of kung fu into the project. And in a unique spin on outdoor advertising,, all of the posters will be available for fans to tear off and take home from outdoor locations throughout in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston and Philadelphia prior to the film’s November 2 release. The official movie trailer can be seen here.
