Warriors of New York came out in Mexico in 1981, and its poster was a collage of publicity stills and the European poster painting. To my mind, though, the most interesting thing about it, even more than the new title, is that Robin Johnson has top billing, and Tim Curry is reduced to third. I can only assume that, even more than in the rest of the world, she was the film’s major selling point in Mexico.

Clockwise from top left: an edit of the photo that ran in Film Review Vol 31 No 1, on an Italian lobby poster, and on the back of the Japanese promo flyer and in the Japanese souvenir program book (in the movie, Nicky holds the microphone in her other hand); a shot of the final concert that I think is making its first appearance here; a larger crop of a shot that appeared in the Japanese program book, and which appeared in an even larger crop on a lobby card whose provenance I’m unsure of (part of the collection of Karen Dean (DefeatedandGifted); I’ve assumed they’re Australian, but I don’t know — they use the American logo but identify the distributor as EMI, not AFD); a shot whose last appearance was in the Japanese program book, and you know what, you can find its previous appearances listed in that post; the painting by Cummins that first appeared on the UK movie poster and on most of the European posters after; and a shot that previously appeared in the “Press Folder,” as a UK lobby card, and in Joepie No. 365.

Here’s the text, along with my feeble attempt at a translation. As always, I welcome any corrections.

NO SOMOS CRIMINALES… Y SI NOS TRATAN COMO TAL USAREMOS ANTIFAZ

NO NECESITAMOS ANTIDEPRESIVOS
QUEREMOS AMOR
