Welcome back to this week's look at Heritage's Sunday night movie poster auction! Each week Heritage auctions off some truly unique finds across all movie genres, such as movie serials, animation, science fiction, romance, and more. Each week I find a few gems that could be overlooked! Here are my pics for this week's unique finds! 

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

It's hard to believe that The Winter Soldier is 10 years old. The popular sequel to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger would go on to become one of the highest-grossing films in 2014, and landed star Chris Evans a People's Choice Award for Favorite Action Movie Star. From a fan point of view, the Captain America movies are regarded as some of the best in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Chris Evans' Steve Rogers passed the shield onto Anthony Mackie's Sam Wilson, this specific series of movies - especially Winter Soldier - proved that the MCU could be a step above the rest.

This unrestored poster features Captain America front and center, with Nick Fury, Black Widow, Alexander Pierce, and the Winter Soldier behind him. This is an exciting poster fit for an early summer blockbuster. Heritage notes this poster is in Very Fine condition. Similar examples trend under $150, making this an affordable piece for any collection.

Graveyard Shift & Pet Sematary Lot

Stephen King is often called The King of Horror, and for good reason. His stories are riveting, and exciting, and can be enjoyed repeatedly. For decades people across all walks of life have enjoyed his films, with a handful of his characters being pop culture icons. In this lot, Heritage offers Graveyard Shift and Pet Sematary together.

Graveyard Shift was released in October of 1990 and is based on the short story of the same name. This is considered one of the worst King adaptations to date, with the author himself writing off the movie. Yet despite the movie being terrible, it does feature Brad Dourif, who famously brought Chucky to life. This poster is gruesome and bold and is the best thing about the movie. Heritage notes that this poster is unrestored and in Very Fine- condition, and would display extremely well in any horror collection.

The second poster is from the well-received Pet Sematary. The story is one of King's most well-known and was adapted for film twice. This poster is for the first movie released in April 1989. While critically panned the movie has been a hit with audiences. A sequel was released in 1992, followed by a very popular remake in 2019. Pet Sematary is a 1990s horror staple, and scared me half to death as a child - so much so that seeing the VHS in Blockbuster creeped me out.

This poster is also unrestored and in Very Fine- condition. Both of these posters go for under $50 in auction, making this a very affordable way to get two Stephen King horror movie posters.

The Phantom of the Opera (1962)

Hammer horror films are a personal favorite of mine. While I prefer the movies with Peter Cushing, their take on The Phantom of the Opera is an absolute delight. While not the most popular Hammer outing, the film has strong characters that engage the viewer. The sets are reused from many of Hammer's other productions, which can be fun if you know what to look for. This movie is worth a watch if you've never seen it before, but if you are a seasoned Phantom fan, you may not enjoy how this movie differs from both the book and the other films (ad the Broadway adaptation).

Heritage notes this poster as unrestored and in Very Fine+ condition. This could end up over the $150 mark, as Hammer has become very popular with horror and classic film fans over the years.
