Last night I went to see Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. This post is not a review, it’s more a showpiece for some of the advertising and promotions concerning the movie. I will say, however, that I thoroughly enjoyed this final instalment of a film franchise that’s been there with me since I was a child. In many ways TROS serves as a fine tribute to the ‘best of Star Wars’. It’s been quite a journey!
So, onto the few promotions I’ve gathered for the film here in France. Besides print adverts, there is the Premiere film magazine cover, a Nestlé cereal competition, cinema exclusive plastic soda cups and a cool metal popcorn bucket, Actimel yoghurt pots, and I’ve included my Japanese chirashi posters.
It’s time once again for some movie treats!
TVTA is pleased to present a selection of cinema and home media print ads and posters covering the years 1982 to 2019.
Enjoy your movie 🙂
To help entice an audience to the cinema, a horror film is going to require a striking and memorable poster. Not only that, it’s going to need a killer tagline which will aim to leave potential viewers wanting to know more.
Did you know that some films have used multiple taglines? For example, our opening entry – the 1971 Vincent Price horror The Abominable Dr. Phibes had eight different taglines across its various releases. Gremlins (1984) had nine. Hitchcock’s Psycho (1960) had thirteen!

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 🙂
