The posters for Superman The Movie (1978) featured Bob Peak’s sublime artwork.  Although there are no specific high-quality bootlegs of these posters floating around, collectors should be aware of the differences between the various versions, including the 2002 re-release, which looks very similar to the 1978 first release.
