Some of our best quantum models suggest that there may well be an infinite number of alternate universes, with infinite variation in degree of difference from our own reality. While we’re not saying definitively that New York-based illustrator and designer Peter Stults has his own personal wormhole and is plucking movie posters from other dimensions, we’re not refuting the idea either.

Stults, whose body of work also includes magazine covers and proposed alternative posters for current movies, has spent the past several years recasting movies from the last few decades with vintage actors, and then designing posters for those movies that look like they came straight out of the relevant era. The often inspired casting choices—fellow Draculas Frank Langella and Christopher Lee fill the Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis roles in a ’70s version of Looper; Reservoir Dogs becomes a Rat Pack vehicle; The Expendables III, a Dirty Dozen-style gritty caper filled with stars like Lee Marvin and Steve McQueen—are married to Stults’ sharp eye for the visual language of design throughout the 20th century. He also has a few in there that could have been theoretically possible in the space-time continuum as we know it, most brilliantly by having Pam Grier lead the entire Alien franchise.

There’s a whole collection of what Stults calls “What If” posters on his online portfolio, in parts I, II, III, IV, and V. He continues to post new ones on Twitter as well.
