Other Info: This poster uses the 'famous' Noriyoshi Ohrai artwork, commonly found on many different international versions used for the Empire Strikes Back advertisement campaign. It has Darth Vader's helmet looming in the green atmospheric background amidst the yellow fireworks. Below Vader is the tibanna gas mining colony Cloud City, floating in the purplish clouds of the planet Bespin. The Millennium Falcon and several X-wings are thrusting towards the edge of the layout and the main artistic composition is being projected outwards to the viewer in many layers. Lando Calrissian is standing over the Leia and Solo embrace, while Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2, and Luke Skywalker, in battle fatigues, are front and center. The rest of the poster shows several illustrated characters and movie scenes, including the assault on Echo Base, AT-AT Walkers, the head of a tauntaun, an Imperial probe droid, Luke's mossy unsubmerged X-wing on Dagobah, and the bounty hunters summoned to the Executor. The tagline at the top says, "La Saga De La Guerra De La Galaxias Continua" (The Star Wars Saga Continues). On the blue footer background, below the art, is the El Imperio contraataca logo, and the cast and credits billing block is at the bottom. The text is in all white lettering, and it also includes the 20th Century Fox and Dolby Systems emblems, and the whole poster is framed with a nice white border. These posters also have a federal censor seal of approval number on them, located on the lower right-hand side of the credits section (aprobado D 1449). Also, some copies of the poster, but not all, have the 'Afichelle INDUSTRIA ARGENTINA' printer's mark on them, and it is found on the lower left-hand side, in the white border. (See pic below)
