DC Comics Celebrates Classic American Films Across Genres & Generations

Pop culture, the general medium of entertainment, pervades modern cultures around the world. Films and television — both live action and animated — bring fantastic stories to life for global audiences every day like no other medium. It is only natural that comics homage classic and popular movies which permeate our cultural consciousness.

A movie homage frequently mimics a movie poster, which, like some comics, may be highly collectable as well. A movie poster homage is typically one-and-done. Few are published as a series or an extended, planned event. There are exceptions to this rule, however. DC Comics, for example, published movie poster homages for several months in the spring of 2015 for many of their flagship titles.

DC homages a variety of films across a variety of categories – including sci-fi, musical, action, romance, comedy, thriller, martial arts & family-friendly – which in one way or another stands up to the test of time:

  1. 300 (which oddly enough is a movie adaptation of a comic book series of the same name by Frank Miller)
  2. 2001: A Space Odyssey
  3. Beetlejuice
  4. Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure
  5. Bullitt
  6. Enter the Dragon
  7. Forbidden Planet
  8. Free Willy
  9. The Fugitive
  10. Gone with the Wind
  11. Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone
  12. Jailhouse Rock
  13. The Lost Boys
  14. Magic Mike
  15. Mars Attacks
  16. The Mask
  17. The Matrix
  18. North by Northwest
  19. Purple Rain
  20. Super Fly
  21. Westworld
  22. The Wizard of Oz

Whatever their film preference, collectors are sure to find an homage to appreciate & enjoy from this DC event.
