When Steven Spielberg burst onto the scene with Duel in 1971, it cemented his reputation as the new golden boy of Hollywood - a position he's maintained for three decades.
Love him or hate him, Spielberg's early work was some of the most exciting filmmaking mainstream audiences had seen in a long time. Originally a 74 minute TV movie made for $450,000, the success of Duel led Universal to commission a feature version.
The story goes that David Mann (Dennis Weaver) is stalked on the open road by a mysterious trucker who continuously attempts to run him off the road. It's a nail-biting, horrifyingly tense thriller that is all the more powerful for its simplicity.
Casey Callender's awesome poster for the movie updates it but retains everything that makes it special - including the iconic vehicles used in the movie.
It reminds me a little of the artwork for Speed and Jeepers Creepers, which are films that take direct inspiration from Duel.
