This is an original one-sheet movie poster from 1979 for Alien starring Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, and Ian Holm. Ridley Scott directed the science fiction classic. Steve Frankfurt and Philip Gips are the artists for the poster.

In the late 1970s, some studios began printing a small number of their own one-sheet posters to complement those printed by the National Screen Service.  This was part of the process of transitioning away from NSS-produced posters that rapidly accelerated in the early 1980s.  These rare, "studio-style" posters do not have the the NSS number in the bottom-right corner of the poster but are considered to be just as authentic and collectible as those printed by the NSS. 

This studio-style poster measures 27” x 41” and is in very good condition.  It was folded at the time of printing.  Most folds flatten out nicely for framing and are often desirable for vintage, collectible movie posters. The poster has minor to moderate fold wear.

Please look closely at the photo (this is the exact poster you are buying and not a stock photo). The small black squares in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.

This rare and collectible poster, printed by 20th Century Fox in 1979 to promote the initial theatrical release of Alien, is not a reprint or reproduction.
