Modern Movies Reimagined as Vintage Hollywood Posters
Peter Stults’ “What If” series asks the hypothetical questions movie buffs didn’t know they needed answers to. Like, what if Cecil B. DeMille had directed Interstellar? Or what if Reservoir Dogs had been made at the height of the Rat Pack era? And most importantly, what would the vintage movie posters for these films look like if they had been made?
The New York–based artist has been publishing his cinematic reimaginings on Behance since 2012. The five-part series suggests a '50s-era Audrey Hepburn as Natalie Portman’s character from V for Vendetta, Gene Wilder in the title role of Ant-Man, and Michael Jackson as Star-Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy.
Not only are the cast lists of these alternate movies posters pulled from a different era, but the style in which they’re created also calls back to the Golden Age of Hollywood. Though we’ll sadly never get to see the late Paul Newman as Iron Man, these posters can at least let us dream.
