RINGSIDE CINEMA: Boxing Movie Posters: How Hollywood Sold the Sweet Science is Coming!

RINGSIDE CINEMA: Boxing Movie Posters: How Hollywood Sold the Sweet Science is a book that will appeal not only to movie and boxing fans but also to Sylvester Stallone and Rocky fans.

Ringside Seat magazine presents Ringside Cinema, the first book dedicated to boxing movie posters and lobby cards from the past 100 years. Rarely seen international posters are also represented here. This beautiful, 170-page book includes an introduction by TCM host and author Eddie Muller and foreword by Steve Kronenberg, Noir City magazine’s managing editor and frequent contributor to Ringside Seat magazine. From Alfred Hitchcock’s The Ring to film noir’s The Set-Up to 2010’s Creed, it’s all here and a feast for the eyes. Ringside Cinema is essential for every boxing fan and movie aficionado’s bookshelf.
“Kudos to Ringside Seat and designer Michael Kronenberg for creating a book that combines three of my great passions: boxing, movies, and poster art. This one’s a keeper.” – Eddie Muller

Check out the video preview below.  Once it hits 1976, Rocky movie posters dominate all the way through!

RINGSIDE CINEMA: Boxing Movie Posters: How Hollywood Sold the Sweet Science comes in two versions:
