Cool STARGATE Movie Poster Art

Art Movie Poster by Joey Paur

The 1994 sci-fi film Stargate was a pretty awesome movie when it first came out. Since its release, the fanbase for it has grown thanks to the several TV series that have been made over the years. It's been awhile since I've seen the original movie, so I think I'll watch it again soon. 

As a tribute to the film, artist Todd Slater created this cool limited edition poster design for the Skuzzles collection. Here's what the artist had to say about the piece,

I was 15 when Stargate was released in theaters in 1994 and I was immediately struck by it's epic scale and grand atmosphere.  The character of Ra,  the Egyptian solar deity, is the one that has really stayed with me all these years.  I wanted to give Colonel Jack O'Neil and Dr. Daniel Jackson a glimpse of what awaited them at the other end of the wormhole.  The two characters view their journey in different ways.  Dr. Jackson's journey is filled with childlike wonder seeing something magnificent and awe inspiring while Colonel O'Neil bears an atomic bomb capable of producing cataclysmic results.  We learn later in the film that the character of Ra is an alien life form who possessed the body of a young boy.  I wanted to touch on this and add some tension to the image by showing his glowing blue eyes.  The print is 8 colors and features 4 varieties of metallic gold and copper inks. There is also a hidden star chart in the background printed in a shiny black varnish.  I hope that the image brings something new to the franchise and that you all enjoy it!

This poster looks absolutely mind blowing in person. Both the regular and the variant editions contain 4 metallic copper and gold inks, with a shiny varnish star chart layer that is most apparent at certain angles under light.  The variant version is printed on holographic paper which shines slightly through the inks making the metallics pop even more. This is our first limited edition screenprint poster that contains a varnish layer and a variant printed on holographic paper, so we would love to hear what you think of these features.

The poster goes on sale Wednesday May 8th at 12:00PM Eastern time on Skuzzles' homepage.
