Compacta Italic can be purchased here: http://www.fonts.com/findfonts/detail.asp?pid=203788 for $32 USD but I don’t think you’re going to find it for free.

I would maybe suggest using Impact (usually comes with Windows) and then condensing and skewing it. It won’t look as good, but it’ll be cheaper than spending $32 USD.

Check out here: http://www.typophile.com/forums/messages/4100/38604.html?1101045556 for info about the film poster font.

Abdul, since you are in school and don’t have the money, stick with the junk you get at free font sites and leave the commercial fonts alone. Its only fair and not funny.

Abdul:

Ask the type vendor if they have student discounts and/or free licenses for student use.

Do what you need to do, but not because it’s simply the easy way out.
Like instead of the next pair of fancy sneakers (or iPod, or whatever) spend money on fonts.

Your name and username make me suspect this is a test…

But in any case, we discourage not paying for fonts around here.

Empire Regular is the film poster font used most of the time. It’s $40 for 1 computer from Font Bureau.

Congratulations Abdul! You’ve managed to track down and steal a piece of software, strike another silent blow to our industry, and deprive Fred Lambert of one more well-deserved royalty payment!

Enjoy the font.
