Incredible Posters of Unmade Movie Sequels

by . November 21st, 2014

Over 40 artists crafted posters of cult movie sequels that were never made.

There is a number of movie projects in development that never made it to the movie houses. This is because they whether never pass through the development stage, production stumbles apart, or the studio simply abandons it for some reason.

Curated by iam8bit, a Los Angeles-based gallery and creative production company, Sequel is an art exhibition that features wonderful poster designs for big screen sequels that were never actually produced. Most of these sequel projects are even what supporters of films like The Rocketeer, The Shining, Spaceballs, and Labyrinth have been wanting for years.

Kudos to iam8bit’s current art exhibition, pop culture geeks were afforded the opportunity to look at what could have been poster designs for movie sequels that for now remains a wishful dream. What I find most astonishing about the exhibit, is the diversity of the 50 poster designs imagined and created by over 40 artists that used various styles and techniques.

Feast your eyes on some of the wonderful posters in Sequel featured below.
