Movie Posters of TV Shows That Became Movies: Part 3 (M-Z)

Movie Posters of TV Shows That Became Movies Part 3

The third and final installment of our feature on “movie posters of TV shows that became movies” will focus on films whose titles start with M through Z.

If you haven’t read the first two parts then be sure to do so before continuing with Part 3.

Movie Posters of TV Shows That Became Movies: Part 1

Movie Posters of TV Shows That Became Movies: Part 2

 

MASH 1970 Original Vintage Movie Poster

MASH

MASH is considered by many to be the greatest television show that ever aired. In 1970, Twentieth Century Fox brought the war comedy to the big screen with Donald Sutherland, Elliott Gould and Tom Skerritt as the leads and Robert Altman in the director’s seat. The poster artwork is definitely unique and befitting MASH’s comedy style.

 

Masters Of The Universe 1987 Original Vintage Movie Poster

Masters of the Universe

In 1987,  Masters of the Universe jumped from animation to live-action on the big screen. The story of He-Man and his comrades on another world was dramatically changed and moved to Earth, a creative decision that killed any chance of a sequel. Rocky IV star Dolph Lundgren played He-Man, while Courtney Cox appeared in a pre-Friends role.

 

Maverick 1994 Original Vintage Movie Poster

Maverick

Richard Donner brought the classic TV western Maverick to the big screen in 1994. To make it work he signed up the big guns in Mel Gibson, Jody Foster and James Garner. The movie poster art works wonderfully in a Western-themed room.

 

Mission: Impossible 1996 Original Vintage Movie Poster

Mission: Impossible

The original Mission: Impossible television series debuted on CBS way back in 1966. With Mission: Impossible films at six and counting, it’s hard to imagine the first big screen entry starring Tom Cruise debuted 22 years ago in 1996. This poster is a modern classic given the franchise’s endurance.

 

The Mod Squad 1998 Original Vintage Movie Poster

The Mod Squad

The Mod Squad ran on ABC from 1968 through 1973. Though MGM enlisted a series of recognizable names for the film including Claire Danes and Josh Brolin, the big screen version was a bomb with only $13.2 million earned.

 

The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! 1988 Original Vintage Movie Poster

The Naked Gun

Leslie Nielsen, George Kennedy, Priscilla Presley and Ricardo Montalban brought audiences to tears with laughter in 1988 with a re-imagined version of The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad based on the 1982 Police Squad TV series. The movie was so beloved that it spawned a pair of sequels.

 

Twilight Zone: The Movie 1983 Original Vintage Movie Poster

Twilight Zone: The Movie

The Twilight Zone TV series ran from 1959 to 1964 and remains a recognizable name today. The movie version in 1983 failed to launch a franchise. However, CBS is bringing back a new small screen version in 2019 on their All Access streaming platform.

 

The Untouchables 1987 Original Vintage Movie Poster

The Untouchables

Brian De Palma’s 1987 theatrical version of The Untouchables is based on the TV series that ran from 1959 to 1963. This film stands on its own as an incredible piece of cinema with Kevin Costner, Sean Connery and Robert De Niro leading the cast. The movie poster artwork has become iconic and is one of our personal favorites from the time period.

 

Wayne's World 1992 Original Vintage Movie Poster

Wayne’s World

Wayne’s World started out as a Saturday Night Live sketch starring Mike Myers and Dana Carvey. The pair brought their goofy characters to the big screen in 1992, and a sequel was released the following year. The movie poster captures Wayne and Garth making their signature facial expressions.

 

The X-Files 1998 Original Vintage Movie Poster

The X-Files

The X-Files became a pop culture phenomenon on Fox during the 1990s. A film version in 1998 and subsequent sequel in 2008 didn’t provide the answers to questions that fans were clamoring for. To this day Fox keeps finding ways to bring The X-Files back. Advance posters for The X-Files movie as seen above have striking artwork.

Movie Posters of TV Shows That Became Movies: Part 2 (E-L)

Movie Posters of TV Shows That Became Movies Part 2

Part 2 of our feature on Movie Posters of TV Shows That Became Movies includes an interesting mix of modern adaptations as well as animation and some all-time classics.

This part consists of films that begin with the letters E through L. It only includes movie posters that we currently have in stock at the time of publishing, and each poster can be clicked on to view the price and listing for that exact movie poster for sale.

If you’re new to this feature then be sure to look at Part 1 before continuing below.

 

The Flintstones

Yabba-Dabba-Do! The Flintstones is one of the most iconic TV cartoons ever created so it was only a matter of time until Hollywood adapted it for live-action.  They couldn’t have picked a better Fred in John Goodman. It’s hard to believe this movie and poster are nearly 25 years old.

 

The Fugitive

Harrison Ford was asserting himself as a middle-aged action star when The Fugitive, based on the TV series that ran from 1963 to 1967 on ABC, came along. The film’s success spawned a spin-off as it made no sense for Ford to return. The poster’s imagery of Ford on the run has become instantly recognizable.

 

The Gong Show Movie 1980 Vintage Original Movie Poster

The Gong Show Movie

The Gong Show is an amateur talent contest that first premiered in the late 1970s and then found syndication success in the 1980s. ABC revived The Gong Show in 2017 with Season 2 airing this year. The film, released in 1980, was considered so horrible that it was quickly pulled from theaters. It didn’t come to home video until 2016 via a Shout! Factory Blu-ray.

 

Hannah Montana: The Movie 2009 Vintage Original Movie Poster

Hannah Montana

Before Miley Cyrus became a pop star she was Disney’s darling, playing the role of Hannah Montana. Young girls loved the character’s two personas, both of which are represented on the movie poster.

 

Inspector Gadget 1999 Vintage Original Movie Poster

Inspector Gadget

The Inspector Gadget 1999 movie starring Matthew Broderick in the title role is based off the early 1980s cartoon that found greater success in syndication later in the decade. Advances in CGI during the mid-to-late 1990s made Inspector Gadget possible for Disney to produce as a live-action film.

 

Jackass: The Movie 2002 Vintage Original Movie Poster

Jackass: The Movie

Paramount and MTV decided there was little risk in capitalizing on the Jackass TV show stunt craze in 2002 by making a low budget R-rated film packed with similar antics by Johnny Knoxville and his crew. The explosive poster artwork says everything you need to know about the plot.

 

Jetsons: The Movie 1990 Vintage Original Movie Poster

Jetsons: The Movie

You couldn’t turn on TV in the 1980s without running into everyone’s favorite animated futuristic family, The Jetsons. Universal tapped into the show’s popularity with an animated film in 1990 almost indistinguishable from the TV show save for a bigger budget and more detail in the artwork. A live-action film has yet to be attempted.

 

Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy Vintage Original Movie Poster

Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy

Kids in the Hall quickly became one of the hottest comedy skit acts on TV during the early-to-mid 1990s. Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy, like Jackass, was a cheap way for Paramount to offer an R-rated version for the show’s fans with little financial risk attached.

 

Land of the Lost 2009 Vintage Original Movie Poster

Land of the Lost

In 2009, Universal tapped comedian actor Will Ferrell to bring the classic TV series Land of the Lost to the big screen. As the intense poster artwork infers, this adaptation lunges beyond the show’s campy nature into far more mature territory, for better or worse.

 

Leave It to Beaver 1997 Vintage Original Movie Poster

Leave It To Beaver

Universal assembled a B-list cast for their 1997 big-screen adaptation of the classic sitcom, Leave it to Beaver. As expected the TV series stands the test of time far better than the movie.

 

Space Jam 1996 Original Movie Poster

Looney Tunes Space Jam

It took over 60 years for Warner Brothers to bring their classic cartoon Looney Tunes to the big screen following the character’s 1930 introduction. They did so in a big way alongside Michael Jordan in the live-action animation hybrid, Looney Tunes Space Jam. A sequel is currently in early development and will shoot in the summer of 2019 with LeBron James starring. This Space Jam character poster for Bugs Bunny is one of several different styles we currently have in stock.

 

Lost in Space 1998 Vintage Movie Poster

Lost in Space

Lost in Space is unique to this list since it began as a TV series in 1965, then became a movie in 1998, and then went back to being a TV series via Netflix earlier this year. The Lost in Space movie poster artwork carries the show’s signature quote, “Danger, Will Robinson!”

Movie Posters of TV Shows That Became Movies: Part 1 (A-D)

Movie Posters of TV Shows That Became Movies Part 1

Hollywood developing movies based on successful television shows is a trend that dates back decades. With shows like HBO’s Deadwood about to go into production and Downton Abbey already in production on their own films, there’s no reason to believe these leaps from the small screen to big are doomed to become a passing fad.

As you can imagine the list of movies based on TV shows grows with each passing year. There are comprehensive lists scattered around the Internet, such as this one at Wikipedia, that explore these films.

To our knowledge there isn’t a single list that instead focuses on movie posters from movies based on TV series. That’s a mouthful; so to fill this gap we made our own list based entirely on vintage original movie posters that we currently have in stock at FFF Movie Posters.

To repeat:

Every movie poster pictured below is an actual picture of an authentic movie poster we currently have for sale.

This list, broken into several posts alphabetically due to size, is both a testament to the number of films Hollywood has produced based on TV shows as well as our expansive inventory of original movie posters. Because it’s based on our poster inventory there are some gaps with newer films, such as Charlie’s Angels, The Last Airbender and The A-Team.

In instances where we have more than one of the pictured poster below in stock, we chose and linked to the one in the best collectible condition.

To own the best one, or others that we literally have only one and may never get another, you must act fast. As time goes on and old vintage posters aren’t properly preserved, the remaining numbers will dwindle and increase in value.

 

The Addams Family 1991 Advance Vintage Original Movie Poster

The Addams Family

The original Addams Family television series with its now iconic theme song ran from 1964 to 1966 on ABC. The film version was released in 1991 and starred Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, Christopher Lloyd, Dan Hedaya, Christina Ricci, Jimmy Workman, Judith Malina, and Elizabeth Wilson. Our poster example is a Lurch-focused advance one-sheet.

 

The Avengers Vintage Original Movie Poster

The Avengers

These Avengers saved the world with style on the big screen long before Nick Fury introduced himself to Tony Stark in the Iron Man post-credits scene. The original ITV series ran from 1961 to 1969, with the big screen version starring Sean Connery, Ralph Fiennes and Uma Thurman coming in 1998. Thurman and Fiennes are front-and-center on the striking poster art while Connery’s presence looms overhead.

 

Batman 1966 Vintage Original Movie Poster

Batman

Adam West and Burt Ward were the original Batman and Robin on either screen. The 1966 Batman movie came out the same  year the TV show premiered on ABC. Batman continues to live on in many mediums. This rare 1966 one-sheet features artwork as goody and silly as the show was.

 

Battlestar Galactica 1978 Vintage Original Movie Poster

Battlestar Galactica

We cheated a little on this one. Battlestar Galactica was originally conceived as an expensive TV series in response to the surprise success of Star Wars. By its release, Universal Pictures turned the very expensive pilot into a movie. What’s great about the poster art is Universal boasting their bloated budget for everyone to see and marvel at.

 

Beavis & Butthead Do America 1996 Vintage Original Movie Poster

Beavis and Butt-Head Do America

In 1993, MTV debuted Beavis & Butthead and before long the delinquent duo dominated the airwaves. By 1996, Beavis & Butthead had their own culturally insensitive movie, but by then their popularity was peaking and a slow ratings descent would follow. Beavis & Butthead creator Mike Judge would use the series’ fame to develop and release cubicle cult classic Office Space in 1999.

The Beverly Hillbillies 1993 Vintage Original Movie Poster

The Beverly Hillbillies

The poor become rich and relocated to Beverly Hills in this big screen adaptation of the comedy series that aired from 1962 to 1971. Dabney Coleman, Lea Thompson, Cloris Leachman, Lily Tomlin, Rob Schneider and Jim Varney headlined the cast. It earned over $70 million at the global box office but failed to spawn a sequel.

 

Bewitched (2005) Advance Vintage Original Movie Poster

Bewitched

Bewitched made twinkling your nose all the rage when it premiered on ABC back in 1964. Colombia Pictures tried to recapture the show’s magic with a big screen version starring Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell in 2005. Over $131 million in global box office earnings couldn’t lift Bewitched high enough for a sequel.

 

The Brady Bunch Movie 1995 Original Vintage Movie Poster

The Brady Bunch Movie

It’s hard to find a more famous television family than The Brady Bunch. While reruns still air today, the 1995 theatrical attempt with a different cast to capitalize on the show’s evergreen popularity failed to speak to a new generation. Paramount has not attempted to produce another Brady Bunch film since.

 

The Care Bears Movie 1985 Vintage Original Movie Poster

The Care Bears Movie

Any child of the 1980s cannot forget The Care Bears craze. The original 1985 movie was designed to both capitalize on the toy line and TV show’s popularity, while also introducing all new characters — in this case The Care Bears Cousins — to sell as toys. The film and its Disney-esque poster art was successful enough to produce two sequels, though dramatically diminishing returns with each pushed The Care Bears into the closet.

 

The Cat in the Hat 2003 Vintage Original Movie Poster

The Cat in the Hat

Dr. Seuss stories are brought back in new mediums even to this day. One of the earlier more risky adaptation’s was 2003’s live-action The Cat in the Hat starring Mike Myers as the titular feline. It barely made back the over $100 million budget not including marketing. The advance poster above offers a tease of the cat to come.

 

Dark Shadows 2012 Vintage Original Movie Poster

Dark Shadows

Tim Burton’s 2012 Dark Shadows starring Johnny Depp stumbled out the gate in the U.S. but earned nearly $250 million worldwide. The poster art evokes a modern familial interpretation of the original TV series that ran from 1966 to 1971 on ABC. It also features two distinct tag-lines that are a play on words: “strange is relative” and “every family has its demons.”

 

Dragnet 1987 Vintage Original Movie Poster

Dragnet

Joe Friday and Pep Streebek were introduced to a new generation in 1987. Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks stepped into the iconic roles of Friday and Streebek, respectively, with Harry Morgan providing a connection to the original TV show by reprising the role of Bill Gannon. The infamous Dragnet police badge artwork and famous quote “just the facts” carries forward from the TV show to the movie poster.
