Original poster of the American film Big Wednesday directed by John Milius in 1978, designed by John Alvin.

In 1978, John Milius directed Big Wednesday (or Graffiti Party). This American comedy-drama about surfing takes place in the 1960s and tells the story of three young surfers from Malibu, Matt Johnson, Jack Barlowe and Leroy Smith played by Jan-Michael Vincent, William Katt and Gary Busey respectively. This film about life, youth and responsibility is considered the story of a generation and has been called "too good for surfers" and "the perfect wave of Hollywood" by Quentin Tarantino. Milius (also Jaws of the Sea and Apocalypse Now) is shooting here the first studio film that faithfully describes the culture of surfing.

Big's original poster Wednesday is composed of a spectacular black and white photo that contrasts with the orange frame. The wave, at the centre of the visual, is also the central element of the film: the three friends are waiting for it for ten years, and it symbolizes decision making and accomplishment.

It was designed by the American artist John Alvin, who also created the posters for E.T., Blade Runner, Predator, Jurassic Park, Mars Attacks, Beetlejuice, Planet of the Monkeys..s... In thirty years, the latter has created more than 135 film campaigns for of film studios such as than New Line Cinema , Warner Bros. Entertainment , Disney Studios and Lucasfilm Ltd.
