Dwayne Johnson Shares ‘Skyscraper’ Posters Paying Homage to ‘Die Hard’ and ‘The Towering Inferno’
To promote his upcoming Summer blockbuster Skyscraper, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson commissioned two posters made in the style of two movies that inspired it: Die Hard and The Towering Inferno. (Perhaps our title for an earlier article was pretty accurate!)
The posters were made in a vintage style that emphasizes a painted image and a lot of text, much like the films of yesteryear. They can be seen below:
I had these ultra cool vintage posters made paying homage to the two classic movies that inspired me and generations, and became the inspiration for my film SKYSCRAPER.
