Parasite by Bong Joon-ho - new quad
« on: January 09, 2020, 01:34:33 PM »
The one-sheet for Parasite has featured in a few 'best poster of 2019' lists. In the past few days, the quad for the forthcoming UK release has been revealed and, in my view, at least, it's very cool:

It's designed by British design house La Boca, best known to APFers for their Black Swan designs a decade ago. La Boca have said they may make prints available on this, but no word on that as yet.

Agree, I think it's a really nice bit of design that fits the film very well. I hope they're 'brave' enough to print it as the quad (and don't plaster it with 5* reviews/quotes).

It would appear, unfortunately, that, at the moment at least, there are no plans to send this poster to cinemas. Bloody well ruined my weekend! Was looking forward to putting one up on the wall!

Quick update - Curzon emailed my contacts cinema & offered 1 per cinema of the La Boca quad with proviso that it's displayed with regular version. Unsure how they will check but there's already 1 on ebay so someone didn't listen!

Thanks for the update, appreciated.

Incidentally my local arthouse cinema (in north London) has the La Boca Parasite quad on display. Not sure if they have the 'regular' quad, too, I just saw the La Boca one as I was strolling past at the weekend.

I so want this but seems like it is going to be difficult to get one. Only one person I know has been lucky enough and he's on here.  notworthy.gif

I've had to settle for the regular one for now. Bong Joon Ho was kind enough to sign it for me this evening.

Nice one, Mark. Very cool to have it signed by Bong Joon Ho.

I grabbed a reg too (despite the annoying quotes). As the La Boca quads are so thin on the ground, I'm hope they release it as a print (like they did with the Deer Hunter re-release)

It looks like a print version is coming - perhaps in a slightly different black colourway? Although that could be a variant I suppose? They printed their Deer Hunter re-release as a reg and variant (I think the variant was 40 x 30" too).



Also, I like Posteritati's little customization to the design (you have to swipe on Instagram to see the close up)

Thats good news Tob. Thanks for the information.
the 2nd quad to appear on ebay is currently at a gobsmacking £350. a 3rd one appeared & subsequently sold within an hour or 2 for god knows what price!
it also seems that Curzon offered 2 different Parasite posters to selected cinemas. The quad which has appeared on ebay & a 1Sheet designed by andrew bannister.

i think it looks great & ive not seen one anywhere yet but ive got my contacts to ask if any flying are around Curzons office thumbsup.gif. this could end up being the rarer of the 2 as most went for the quad & there are no signs of it being sold as a print.

That one-sheet is really nice, too. Thanks for posting it. I haven't seen that on display at any cinemas yet (though I will be visiting a Curzon this evening so will keep an eye out).

I have seen the La Boca quad in cinemas - when I asked my local arthouse theatre if their one was going spare, I was politely informed that one of the staff had called dibs on it. Can hardly blame them - the one on Ebay you mentioned that had been at £350 has just sold for more than £700!!!

Not that I am obsessed with Parasite but months after its original UK release - and its Oscar win - there is still new official poster art being created for the film. British distributor/arthouse cinema chain Curzon is releasing the black & white version of the movie and has created a new poster specifically, a reverse of the main poster image. Whether these will get printed or only exist online, given the widespread closure of cinemas, who knows, but thought this was interesting enough to share at least.

Interesting. don't know if I would rush out t buy that though. I still looking for that La Boca poster that is outside my price limit. I won't settle for anything less at this moment in time. I was hoping that they did a screen print of it but doesn't look like it.

so the poster you posted says "black and white version" - does this mean they are releasing a B&W version of the film?

Yes - exactly. I had no idea a B&W version existed until I saw the news about the UK poster, but having done a little Googling, it seems like it has been around for a little while.

This article from April, by way of example, is one of many on the subject:

Great. Hope can get to see it when the cinemas reopen.
