This quad poster for BMX Bandits (1983) was designed for the UK release. The poster features Judy (Nicole Kidman) and four cyclists jumping through the air on BMX bikes.

The artwork is by renowned British artist Josh Kirby, who illustrated the Terry Pratchett Discworld novels and the UK poster for Return of the Jedi (Richard Marquand, USA, 1983).

This well designed poster has a terrific dynamic composition. The artwork is exceptional, particularly the foreshortening of the central BMX rider.

It uses a comic-book style that is in sync with the film's story, which itself is like a live-action cartoon. The poster's design is well-aimed at the target teen audience.
