TVTA is very pleased to acquire its first Japanese chirashi movie poster for the upcoming Star Wars film The Rise of Skywalker which is due for its cinema release in December this year!
In addition to this simple yet elegant Star Wars chirashi, I picked up a sweet 4-sided poster for 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, along with chirashis for 2019 releases Spider-Man: Far From Home, Joker, and Toy Story 4.
Enjoy your movie 🙂
Godzilla is a gigantic prehistoric sea creature, awakened by nuclear radiation to emerge from the ocean and wreak havoc on Earth. Classified as a kaiju – a Japanese word that refers to the genre of films featuring such giant monsters, Godzilla first appeared as a cinema release in 1954 in Ishirō Honda’s film Godzilla. Since then, the King of the Monsters has appeared in a multitude of films, TV shows, video games, comics, and books. TVTA is pleased to present a selection of Japanese chirashi movie posters featuring Godzilla as seen in live action and anime films.

Time for some more movie treats!
Presenting: a selection of Japanese Chirashi film posters direct from the collection of TVTA!
Japanese Chirashi are printed mini-posters or flyers created to promote film releases in Japan. The size of a typical Chirashi is “B5” (approx 7 x 10 inch /18cm x 26cm). Most Chirashis are double-sided with an image from the film printed in colour on the front. Additional artwork and information printed in Japanese appears on the reverse. Chirashi posters are great fun to collect, and TVTA is pleased to add this latest batch to its growing collection
Enjoy your movie 🙂
The end. Roll credits. Thanks for watching 🙂
Look out for another Saturday Night At The Movies with TVTA coming soon!
This Halloween TVTA has taken over an abandoned Blockbuster video store… Please make your video selections from the °TVTA-BUSTER HORROR SHELF° below. Choose 2 titles and get a 3rd free! Or why not take our Bloody Halloween Special: 7 titles in exchange for a litre of blood? C’mon, it’s only a teeny tiny litre of blood – the average human body contains nearly 5 litres of the stuff. It doesn’t even have to be your own blood!
Presenting: 24 Japanese horror movie posters. From originals to remakes to recently made. Many titles you’ll recognise, others perhaps not, some drift into genres like sci-fi and fantasy while retaining a suitable horror element.
Go ahead… pick your films wisely, lock the doors, close the curtains and enjoy! And don’t forget to rewind the tapes back to the beginning before returning them to the store!
°THE TVTA-BUSTER HORROR SHELF°
Oh oh, looks like someone slipped a copy of Toy Story into the Horror Section. Tut, tut, I hope that doesn’t mean some poor child somewhere is about to watch Hellraiser by mistake! Yikes, better get Wooof to go search the membership register pronto…
TVTA is always happy to add some new Japanese chirashi to the collection.
Hot off the scanner this weekend comes Venom alongside older titles Zazie dans le Métro, Match Point, Apt Pupil, 28 Days Later and Close Up.
As always thanks for looking.
Only 27 days to Halloween!
As Halloween creeps closer, TVTA remembers the American child actress and star of Poltergeist movie trilogy Heather Michelle O’Rourke. O’Rourke (born 27 December, 1975) played the character Carol Anne Freeling, youngest child of the Freeling family who becomes the conduit for terrifying supernatural entities that haunt her family. Sadly O’Rourke died during the making of Poltergeist III of cardiac arrest caused by septic shock due to intestinal stenosis. She died on the first of February 1988 aged 12 years old. Poltergeist III was released posthumously and dedicated to her. As well as her role in the trilogy, O’Rourke appeared in the TV series Happy Days, Fantasy Island, CHiPs and others.
I’d rank the original Poltergeist high in my list of favourite horror films, with O’Rourke’s performance being a standout. Below are Japanese chirashi movie posters for Poltergeist and Poltergeist III.
Poltergeist III. 1988.
Did we mention Halloween is one of TVTA’s favourite annual events?
Look out for more special Halloween posts coming soon!
