James Bond UK general release posters
WRITTEN & COMPILED BY KEVIN HARPER

For every official general release or re-release of the James Bond films in the UK, a quad-crown poster (30" x 40") was created for in-house cinema displays and advertising hoardings across the country. These colourful and highly stylised posters are now collectors items and command high prices when sold at auction. Quad-crown posters were primarily used outside cinemas in light-boxes in conjunction with front-of-house stills (which came in sets of eight), but would also be seen up and down the country on advertising hoardings, or displayed in the London Underground during the release of each new film in the series. Double-crown posters were intended for use on the front and back of London's double-decker buses, but also used in cinema lobby displays of to create bespoke double-bills or re-releases where a quad-crown poster was not available.

Displayed here for the first time are all quad-crown posters in release date order from 1962 - 2015.

Individual cinema managers could programme their own double-bills - whilst these did not always have quad-crown posters created, cinema lobbies would often display double-crown posters (20" x 30").
