Great Film Posters: Innerspace

The eighties may not have been Hollywood’s greatest decade but the period did produce some fascinating film posters, particularly in the fantasy, horror, adventure and sci-fi genres.

Top 10 1980s Childhood Adventure Films

ABOUT: As part of Top 10 Films’ celebration of cinema past and present, including Classic Scenes and Iconic Images, we take a look at some of our favourite film posters.

The tagline is a perfect introduction to Joe Dante’s Explorers – “You don’t need a driving license to reach the stars”. It suggests to me the great possibilities of a child’s imagination, beautifully supported by the image of a couple of bikes against the backdrop of a star-lit night sky and a mysterious light emanating from the distance.

    Back in the day, really great imagery was important to get people interested in watching a film. Distinctive artwork on the cover of a VHS would catch someone’s eye in the video store and convince them that it was worthy of checking out. Cool movie posters have become a bit of a lost art as more and more of them have started to look the same.

    Interesting poster … hate to admit it, but I’m not sure I’d heard of this film.

    I agree with Evan … the lone warrior stuff (Star Trek, Oblivion etc) coming out lately is becoming a bit tedious. I think the last poster I really liked (which is also a bit lone warrior-esque) was Hancock.

    BTW, what’s with the mention of Innerspace?

    A great evocative tag line. I looked forward to the film, but I think I wanted Spielberg magic instead of Dante mayhem. Still it is a great poster and the movie was fun.
