Hand painted Russian movie posters

Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid
I while ago I did a post about Ghana movie posters that were hand painted. It turns out, as EnglishRussia reports in their post Weird and funny hand painted movie posters, that Russians also hand painted movie posters.

In Ghana they were done for mobile cinemas which were traveling shows which used a generator to power a TV and VCR to screen movies for villagers. EnglishRussia doesn't explain why there are hand painted Russian posters, he only notes that you sometimes see them near theaters.

There are more examples after the jump, and of course more can be seen at the EnglishRussia link.
