It's the 80's action cult classic starring Dolph Lundgren! :troll:

Love that font. Great tagline too.  :guts:

I remember seeing this movie in theatres when I was a kid.  I think I have a wav of the opening credit sequence on my hard drive.  If I find it I'll post it:

edit: found it.

Awsome work Griff! Dolph Lundgren would make the perfect guts! Pity he is not young enough now to play him

Haha, very nice one you got there Griff ! I specially like the real look the armor has (you got the effect using photoshop, isn't it?)  and though Dolph maybe isn't the perfect Guts he is still a good candidate. 8)

Great job everyone, keep it up :guts:

Dolph Lundgren at that age looks a lot more like Guts to me then Wally Szczerbiak, but both posters are phenominal work. Very cool Griff.  :carcus:

Thanks guys, and look what I found, it's the apologetic 2006 DVD release!




Complete with a cleaned up, watered down, generically modern style and more cliché tagline! :troll::

Since it's the DVD release here's the behind the scenes making of featurette...

The main man is of course Dolph Lundgren circa The Punisher (as per Casting Director Nightcrawler's suggestion). The armor and Beast were modified in photoshop from images of some model kits and the DS is from a repainted statue (from DirectDK and the Art Department at http://www.berserkstatues.com/). The title logo and font is based off and created from the bigdullredbrand image made famous at Black Sun over Midland, and the bitchen font used for Dolph's name is called Metal Lord (other fonts used on the poster and DVD are Goudy Old Style and Copperplate Gothic Light, the "deluxe collector's edition" is from a Troma DVD =). Finally, that killer tagline on the original poster was penned by Script Supervisor WallyB. (who also did the soundtrack) and a special thanks to Executive Producer Aazealh for his input throughout the production.

Again, thanks for all the kind words and encouragement, and keep those submissions coming!

So Dolphs head really does work.

I could tell you it looks really good, but you probably already know. ;)

damn nice work.

I like this one a lot better than the first.  The beast mode seemed kinda tacked on and pushed to the side.  Perhaps if you had it above and faded in the background or something.  Either way this one is much nicer, imo.

what kind of features can we expect from the deluxe edition?

Thanks, and funny you should mention that stuff... the DVD is actually closer to what the original poster was going to look like before I really went for the whole 80's B movie motif with Dolph. That's why it's got that slightly blue tint, higher contrast, rougher look, tepidly cheesy tagline, and of course, the crappy superimposed monster/alien ripoff hovering awkwardly. ;D

I love the differences from those old "embarrassing" posters to current DVD releases where they try to class it up, with sound, though boring, results.


Thanks again for the feedback guys, but it's someone else's turn now.

Though this isn't exactly related to motion pictures, it could go up on a different "type" of Big Screen...heh.

Heh, neat idea. Although at 100% health Guts' statis icon in the center probably wouldn't be all bloody and beat up, but this is coming from a doom fanatic  :serpico:

Nice work!

Neat idea Blade, it's true it's not a movie poster and it loses some of its charm because of the B&W but it's still cool.

hahaha, perfect idea and image choice, if you want to go all out in photoshop, color it and use the pixelette/mosaic tool to make it look like authentic DOOM.

No matter how hard I look, it's too small to figure out (and too blurred when I maximise it). As no one else has got it, are you going to tell?

Oh yeah, glad you brought that up (or are interested at all), I guess if nobody gets it I'll reveal it later this week with likely my ultimate poster submission.

Maybe I should offer a prize?  :troll:




And thanks for reviving the thread Borgoff.

Well I was curious; knowing you I can only guess it to be something witty and ironic, like the credits to the Care Bears movie or something equally conflicting to what a Berserk movie would be. ;D

I think I saw Mario Kassar's name is in there, and the only movie (I could find) with him as producer and Dolph starring is Universal Soldier.
If I'm right, the prize goes to the charity of your choice =)
