The 1980s was a decade in which filmmakers pulled put all the stops todazzle audiences and make them jump out of their seats. And just as theymarked the development of the special effects technology that sparked awave of blockbuster films, the Eighties also saw the advent of the cuttingedge computer techniques used by graphic artists in the promotional postersfor these unforgettable films. It was the decade when filmmakers finallyhad the technology to transfer their visions to the screen, challenginggraphic artists and illustrators to catch up, and many of its mostenduring images are represented in this volume: the glow behind the lensesof Arnold Schwarzenegger s gargoyle-framed sunglasses that characterizedthe monolithic menace of The Terminator, the sarcastically simplecrossed-out cartoon ghost that enticed audiences into the theaters to seeGhostbusters, the silhouette of the mysterious, domino-clad strangerthat haunts the unbalanced mind of Mozart in Amadeus, the wisp ofcigarette smoke that bisects the image of Sean Young s stoic face on theposter for Blade Runner, and many more. The poster art presented inthis volume represents the work of a new generation of graphic artists anddesigners, equipped for the first time with a brand new technology, incollaboration with visionary filmmakers from Spielberg to Kurosawa, fromCameron to Ramis, from Foreman to Attenborough who continually managed tokeep our eyes riveted to the screen.
