Today marks the 70th birthday of Academy Award-winning actor Robert De Niro, best known for his roles in classic films like The Godfather Part II, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, and The Deer Hunter, and better known to today’s younger audiences for his comedic turns in the Meet The Parents movies.
There will likely be a wide array of tributes and celebratory revelry for the man all day today. One of the coolest ones so far has to be the collection of newly realized movie posters, which takes three of De Niro’s most popular pictures — The Godfather Part II, Raging Bull, and Meet the Parents — and presents them in a 1950′s style, utilizing a sort of stark, bold colorization on the backdrop of a key image from each respective film.
Check out all the posters here below.
These one of a kind items are not for sale at this time, unfortunately, as they were specially commissioned for De Niro’s milestone birthday by UK online clothing outfitter, Original Penguin.
