Other Info: This small poster contains the image of Darth Vader's outstretched hand pose design by Thomas Jung, standing over his Stormtroopers and the Rebels. The illustration is framed with a dark blue border and an inner thin white line. At the top the tagline says, "La Guerre des étoiles Continue..." (Star Wars Continues). The French Empire Strikes Back "L'Empire contre-attaque" logo is in yellow, centered atop the cast and credits area sitting on the dark blue background. At the bottom are the 20th Century Fox, Meccano, RSO Records, and Dolby Stereo emblems.

Bootlegs*: Although not really considered a bootleg, however, this poster was reprinted in the 90's with the original French printing plates, making it very hard to tell 80's originals from the '90s reprints. Most copies for sale today are the R1990's versions. The only way to tell is by looking at them side by side which shows paper aging, glossiness, etc.
