John Alvin was responsible for creating a number of beautiful painted movie posters across four decades, including the likes of Predator and Star Wars.

Thanks to Titan Books, we can exclusively share with you one of his designs from upcoming release, The Art of John Alvin, a book which collects his work, both seen and unseen. This one is for Tim Burton’s Batman, a movie that many fans still consider to be the best big screen outing for the Caped Crusader.

Do you think they should have used this poster back in 1989?

John Alvin’s movie poster art is among the most iconic of the last 40 years, from Disney films such as Beauty and the Beast and Pinocchio, to Empire of the Sun, Gremlins, Blazing Saddles, Predator, and Star Wars 30th anniversary posters. This book not only collects some of Alvin’s finest work, but also includes previously unseen comprehensives and in progress sketches.

Update: THR was sent some posters as well, and they received the finished version of the Batman News exclusive above:
