You could buy online though its more expensive cause of postage etc.. Some record shops like HMV sell movie posters too or you could try a film memorabilia shop.

So that's what you do in Media Studies. It doesn't sound very academic.

they have free ones in odeon cinemas of the current and up-coming films they are showing. but if you are going to london soon, there are a few really good film memorabilia shops on shaftsbury avenue. you can get just about any film poster you want there. you can also get action figures which look nothing like the chatacters in the films but oh well.

Go to your local cinema.

You will need a hacksaw/axe/other instrument of persuasion.

On one outside wall there will be plastic cases containing posters of the new/soon to be released films. Use your instrument of persuasion to open the case and remove the poster.

If the posters are inside the cinema, you will need to wave your instrument in a threatening manner.

This may sexually arouse some members of the public, depending on their sexual orientation.

You could also maybe try your local library- I don't know about film posters (?) but when I was little they'd give us the kiddies book ones when they were finished with them so it might be worth asking...
You could also ask at your local woolworths if the ones on display on the film counter are available to buy etc?

I may be completely wrong...

One last suggestion- if you don't need full size then just do an online search and print them off (you can laminate them is they need ti be shiny!)

Good luck

wh smiths get new posters in everyweek- so it may be a good idea to go into ponty n ask if theyre throwing any out soon if they could keep them for you- i got loads of mosters inc ones from there last summer.
