British Star Wars Advance Teaser Quad

Other Info: Star Wars opened in the United Kingdom at two London cinemas: The Dominion and The Leicester Square Theatres on December 27, 1977 (both playing the film in 70mm Dolby stereo). The Hildebrandt Brothers quad illustration was used for the initial promotion of the film for several weeks during the holiday season. This international poster is highly sought out by collectors because of its unique horizontal landscape format that showcases the full artwork, and also because of the countries connection to the making of the film. It has the nice blue starry Star Wars logo, outlined in white, on the left hand side above the credits, and you will also find the small U Rating of the film (by the British Board of Film Classification) next to it. At the top of Luke's lightsaber and across the upper right side portion of Vader's helmet is the tagline, "May the force be with you".
