Wanted long poster given away with Cameron's titanic

Please help! I have been desperately looking for a film poster for the past 5 years, ever since mine was destroyed in a flood. It's not just any poster, but one that was given away when James Cameron's film first came out on video. A good friend of mine queued in the early hours to get me it, so it holds great sentimental value. It is one of those very long landscape posters, but only about the height of a piece of A4 paper. I would be willing to pay a reasonable amount to anybody who would be willing to part with this poster. If you know of it's whereabouts, please let me know.

Have you looked about the net through stores that specialise in film posters, or try ebay. Ebay is a good starting point.

[Moderator's note: This post, originally posted in a double thread discussing the same poster in another topic, has been moved to the original one. JDT]

Thanks Jonathan. I've tried all sorts of places, but to no avail. I'm almost starting to think I imagined the poster!

Also, a quick sorry to the moderator - I hadn't realised I'd double posted.

If you can post a photo of what it looks like then I can see if I have it. There were so many different ones printed...

I have more posters/prints than I have wall room! I personally have never heard of one that is the size of A4 paper but landscape long, that is what has me puzzled..

I have the movie posters they used at the theaters framed and put up on my wall but not sure about the video set one. Will have to look as i do have it on VHS, DVD and will get it on Blu-ray when it finally shows up on it.

Unfortunately, I don't have the poster any more to take a picture. However, from what I remember it had a picture of jack at one end and of Rose (I think in her hat) on the other end. My description of the shape was a little poor. It was a long banner poster, but approximately the height of a piece of A4 paper. As far as I know, it was only given away free to people who bought the film at midnight when it was first released onto video in the UK.
Does that make it any clearer?

Hi,

I also am puzzled by the size. I just looked at dozens and dozens of posters from the '97 release, including some "video release" (both "one sheets" - 27"x40") and others; none was not this odd size. Can you give any more info about what was actually on the poster? Who was on what end etc.? You must know it well as you love it so. Perhaps it was something...some sort of promo item specific to the chain of video stores where you originally got it? Was it "insert" size - 14" x 36"?

Best,
Eric

PS - I'd still continue to try the movie memorabilia angle - Jonathan is correct.

Okay, I think I've found it, I had to ask a friend of mine who owns every poster from the film ever made (or so it seems).

Did it look like this?

If so, that's the only one any of us can think of that is of the size you are describing. And actually it's not a poster but it is a press kit that came with several mini posters of the actors inside. Unless in the UK they did it in poster form but to my (and my friends) knowledge we've never seen it in poster form other than the press kit.

So..with all that, is that the poster you were referring to?
