Original concept art for an advance movie poster. Two-color, high-gloss silkscreen test print on 300 g (12 oz) Zander Chromolux paper, design Cem Koc.
The 64 squares symbolize a chess board. They are inspired by Arthur Schnitzler‘s Traumnovelle and also an hommage to Stanley Kubrick's lifelong love of the game. This was an official submission. Unfortunately, Stanley Kubrick died two days before a decision should have been made and the designer subsequently withdrew this campaign. Less than a handful of these test prints were made, one of them is in the official Stanley Kubrick Archive. A one-time chance. Minimal border wear, very light surface scratches, overall very nice. With Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, directed by Stanley Kubrick.
