MOVIE POSTER COLLECTORS AUTHENTICATION

MATRIX INTERNATIONAL “LIGHTNING”

ONE SHEET MOVIE POSTER

 

The Matrix International English language (Tagline “BELIEVE THE UNBELIEVABLE”) original one sheet is similar to the US version but has the building/lightning background.  It is extraordinarily rare.  I have never seen it auctioned or offered by a dealer.   I know of only two collectors that have it.  It is reported to be one sided and measures 26 15/16” x 29 3/4.”  You may run across two alternatives for sale.  First, the German version of this poster is relatively common.  Second, the Sonis company has produced a licensed reprint that is 26 3/4” x 38 1/2”).

MATRIX GERMAN POSTER

SONIS COMMERCIAL REPRINT:  The Sonis commercial reprint is very similar to the original international.  However, you can spot the Sonis logo at the bottom center right. 

GERMAN POSTER: It’s easy to distinguish the German posters from the International (English language version).  The German posters are printed in metric sizes (A0, A1, etc) and the tagline “Glaube Das Unglaubliche” is in German.   They are available for sale on Ebay as of this writing (July 2010).
