Classic Martial Arts Film Posters

kungfu film posters 00

Like the Wu-Tang Clan, as a kid growing up I saw many kung fu flicks with gravity defying kicks, flying swords and super speed punches.  And if you are in the LA area, The Academy of Motion Picture & Sciences is showcasing classic martial arts film posters from Bruce Lee to Kill Bill.  This huge 800 film poster collection & related materials was donated by producer & screenwriter Stephen Chin in 2011 to the Academy.  This exhibit will run through August 25, 2013 and it’s FREE.
