Pre-release color ad for "12 Years a Slave", in a Los Angeles newspaper...



Item # 679175

October 13, 2013

LOS ANGELES TIMES, Oct. 13, 2013 (Calendar Section)

* Pre-premiere ad for "12 Years a Slave"
* Steve McQueen - Chiwetel Ejiofor & Michael Fassbender
* Best Picture, Director, Foreign Actor and Supporting Actor, etc.


Page D7 has the best full-page ad for "12 Years a Slave" from the leading newspaper of the entertainment industry - the Hollywood area's prime publication. It is also nice to have a pre-release ad for this noteworthy, multi-Academy Award winning film. Page D8 has a small color photo of several main characters from the film.
Other large movie ads are present as well, including "Captain Phillips" starring Tom Hanks, "All Is Lost" starring Robert Redford, and "Escape Plan" starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone.
Offered is the Calendar Section only, in very good condition.

Note: Where else might one find authentic, large ads for Opening Day showings, in the most desirable Hollywood-area newspaper - as we were lucky enough to obtain this (and others) indirectly from the Los Angeles Times' own collection? It simply doesn't get any better! In over 40 years of collecting, we have yet to see such unique & dramatic coverage with truly top-shelf, eye-catching displayability (see images).

Background (Wikipedia): 12 Years a Slave is a 2013 historical drama film directed and produced by Steve McQueen. It is an adaptation of the 1853 autobiographical slave narrative memoir of the same name by Solomon Northup, a New York-born free negro who was kidnapped in Washington, D.C. in 1841 and sold into slavery.
