Artist Andy Ellis has created a new poster for the Jason Statham modern action classic The Transporter in the style of 19th century French posters of Toulouse-Lautrec and it is fucking awesome. Says Ellis:
One lazy afternoon I was flipping through channels and landed on a station showing the 2002 Jason Statham action spectacle THE TRANSPORTER. Having never before seen it, I was struck by two things:
1. How awesome it was.
2. how very, very FRENCH it was.
He's right! Corey Yuen directed, but Louis Leterrier and Luc Besson bring that oh-so French je ne sais qua to the whole thing. It's delightful. And this poster is wonderful, and as Ellis notes, the perfect compromise for a household where you're fighting over hanging Le Chat Noir or a movie poster.
