 The Guinness World Records' record for the Largest collection of posters was set by the collection belonging to Norm and Lupe Nielsen (both USA). The collection, which today consists of approxinately 2,000 contemporary and vintage posters began in 1991.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the Most expensive poster for a film, set by an original poster for Metropolis (Germany 1927), a science-fiction film by Fritz Lang (Austria), which was sold by the Reel Poster Gallery in London, UK to a US collector for $690,000 (£393,300) on 15 November 2005.

  Produced to promote Bollywood film Boss, it is now on its way to the Indian city of Mumbai in a specially-built crate. When it arrives it will be put up in the city before moving on to Delhi.

  Made by Abbotsley-based company Macro Art, the World's Largest Poster was printed onto a PVC mesh in several strips 5m wide.

  It took a whole weekend to print and a day to put together, before a team of 30 helped roll it out at the airfield, The Cambridge News reported.

  Macro Art's Project manager, Ben Seward, said: "A highly skilled and dedicated team of staff have once again been able to bring everything together on time to realise our customers' dream of having a new World Record."

  The film is a comedy caper directed by Anthony D'Souza and also stars Mithun Chakraborty, Danny Denzongpa, Aditi Rao Hydari and Parikshit Sahni in pivotal roles. The movie is slated to release on Oct 16.
