Alt + Poster is a (semi) regular feature where we, the SAW staff, share our favorite foreign and alternative movie posters with the Wasteland.
If you’ve unearthed a foreign or alternative movie poster that you think the rest of the Wasteoids need to see, please send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @SAWasteland.
Jakub Erol’s poster for The Terminator is what got me interested in foreign movie posters, so it seems only fitting that Erol’s poster for the Polish release of Star Wars is the first alternative poster we’re featuring for Star Wars month.
It’s amazing to me that Erol could take a character as ridiculous as C3PO and make him seem somehow sinister, but he did. And the juxtaposition of the fonts with the artwork adds to the overall effect, making the whole thing…unsettling.
But what are your thoughts? Does this poster work for you? Let us know in the comments below!
