Movie Poster Of The Week: Tim Doyle’s Apocalypse Now

Chances are good that if you’re a serious movie poster collector, you already know Tim Doyle’s name. Doyle has been releasing movie-inspired prints for some time now. Based out of Austin, Texas, Doyle helped establish the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema’s nationally renown poster and t-shirt company Mondo Tees as an art director before launching his own company, Nakatomi Inc in 2009.

Doyle’s detail-heavy art style and bold use of colors has lent itself to an increasingly amazing series of prints available at his online shop. From movie posters for Die Hard and The Phantom of Paradise to a beautiful series of portraits inspired by the Godfather series, Doyle’s work is always something to seek out when he has a new release.

Early next week a new poster from Doyle will be released from Tommy Good, an art company that teams with the Astor Theater in Melbourne, Australia to release movie posters based on cult films. Doyle’s contribution to the company will be for a February screening of Apocalypse Now. The poster combines Doyle’s natural ability for design and composition with an amazing color scheme. The print measures 16 x 26 inches and has a regular edition run of 250 with a variant edition of 65.

The poster will go on sale early next week. To get the jump on the sale, join the mailing list at www.tommygood.com. If you enjoy his artwork, make sure and visit Tim’s online shop. Tim has recently released a great tribute to Vietnam war films that’s on sale at his shop.
