Poster Series Highlights the Greatest Movies Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch & More Never Made

"Ones That Got Away" include Kubrick's "Napoleon" and Lynch's "Rocket Ronnie."

Featured in the line are Guillermo del Toro’s would-be adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s “At the Mountains of Madness,” Hitchcock’s “Kaleidoscope,” Lynch’s “Ronnie Rocket,” Kubrick’s “The Aryan Papers” and “Napoleon,” Orson Welles’ “Don Quixote” and Salvador Dalí’s “Giraffes on Horseback Salad” — an especially intriguing prospect, given the fact that the Marx Brothers were envisioned to star in it.
