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, "A Saga De Guerra nas Estrelas Continua" (The Star Wars Saga Continues). In the upper left-hand corner is the O Império Contra-Ataca logo, and on the dark footer background, below the art, is the cast and credits billing block. 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. The poster has a pre-printed federal censor seal of approval, underneath the probot recon droid, and the paper is of a glossy slick stock. In the bottom border on the left and right sides it says, "Criação De José Maria / Impressão - Nacional Gráfica - RJ." (Creation by José Maria / Printing - Nacional Gráfica - RJ.) Some of the copies of this poster have a fuchsia-colored 20th Century Fox title text stamped on the back, while others do not. (See pic below)
