This month, Warp Films celebrates its 10th birthday. In honour of the occasion they asked artist Pete McKee to reinterpret some of their most iconic film posters, including Four Lions, Submarine, and This Is England.

To commemorate Warp Films’ 10th birthday this month, Pete McKee has painted a set of 10 film posters, reimagining the original posters for films including This is England, Dead Man’s Shoes and Four Lions. McKee had his own initial reservations about the project, explaining “When Warp asked me to paint their favourite films I immediately said yes and then wondered how I was going to portray a film where there are 11 murders in it and another film where a lovely dog meets an untimely end in the first scene. Not my usual subject matter, but an interesting challenge.”

All ten posters will be on display at two Warp events in Sheffield, a Warp Films retrospective at Showroom Cinema, November 2 – 9, which will include a This Is England Marathon, and film Q&As. Warp will also be showing Dead Man’s Shoes at the Magna Science Centre, in Sheffield, on November 17, with a live re-score of the film. More info can be found here.
