Great billboards for DOS in Moscow! Can't Post

These are the billboards advertizing The Hobbit: DOS in Moscow. Looks really great and I don't think I've seen such advertizing elsewhere:

Those are really cool! [In reply to] Can't Post

I wish we'd get those here in the states.

"Yet fairest of all are the willows of Nan-tathren, pale green, or silver in the wind, and the rustle of their innumerable leaves is a spell of music: day and night would flicker by uncounted, while still I stood knee-deep in grass and listened. There I was enchanted, and forgot the Sea in my heart." - Unfinished Tales

Takes me back, Hutt! [In reply to] Can't Post

Great to see Moscow again, but what a difference! I'm English but lived and worked for three years in Moscow during the late 60s (Nixon/Brezhnev). The billboards were more likely to be like this:

But those are really lovely.

All I can say is Wow! Well done! It is interesting [In reply to] Can't Post

how the flims are marketed in different countries. Do the studios feel a need to really help drive ticket sales in some countries vs others? Is Russia a bit of a hard sale?

You should make some phone calls... [In reply to] Can't Post

...and see if you can get your hands on one of those when they take them down. I'm sure they're already claimed but nothing ventured, nothing gained. Wink

That link was great [In reply to] Can't Post

I loved looking at those old 'billboards'. In fact, I much prefer their artwork to the modern movie posters.
What an interesting time for you to be in Russia!

Here is something you might do in America... [In reply to] Can't Post

Bomby was talking to the manager
of my closest Denny's Resturant.

She said the Hobbit product
tie-in would last about 3 months.

So, in January, after the New years,
gunna go back & give her my phone number?

So, when they trash the signs
they have in their front windows
she could call me &
Allow me to pick one up!

Cool thing about them?

You see the graphic from the outside
but from the inside you can see through
them?

Don't know, HOW they made them,
BUT it Could be cool on a
Window in your house.

Just the Logo,
cut from the larger signage.

good call Bomby [In reply to] Can't Post

I remember asking for a certain standee from a favorite film years ago and got three of them from several movie theaters when it came time for the film to pulled.

Politely ask and you might walk away with something.

I hope you get some of the Denny's product.
