Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings Trilogy in Chirashi

The Lord of the Rings trilogy trilogy is considered one of the most ambitious film projects ever undertaken, with a budget somewhere in the region of $281 million and a filming schedule of eight years. The trilogy received overwhelming praise and won 17 out of 30 Academy Award nominations. TVTA is pleased to present Chirashi poster versions of all three films as advertised and made available in Japan at the time.

This special six page fold out chirashi features portraits of Batman, Joker and Harvey Dent each presenting the viewer with a ‘signature’ item.

The front page is the movie poster of Batman standing below the burning bat logo. The reverse pages are a mixture of screen stills, info and character pics typical of chirashi.

Japanese Chirashi movie posters

A Chirashi is a printed mini-poster or flyer used to promote film releases in Japan. The size of a typical Chirashi is “B5”  (approx 7 x 10 inch /18cm x 26cm). A relatively cheap and space-saving alternative to regular-size industry posters, Chirashis make excellent movie memorabilia collectables.

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.  As well as the standard double-sided format, some Chirashi are more elaborate – opening up as gate-fold, tri-fold or quad-fold posters. Other deluxe features can include thicker card stock, metallic print, UV overlay, Mylar print, and die-cutting.
