Alt + Poster: ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ Radio Drama Poster Art

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 or on Twitter @SAWasteland.

This poster for the radio dramatization of The Empire Strikes Back perfectly nails in one image that weird blend of fantasy and science fiction that grew in popularity toward the end of the 70s and into the early 80s that seemed to coalesce in the Star Wars franchise. I love everything about this poster. The focus on Yoda, the bold color palette, and the typography for the film title. It all just works for me.  

Does this work for you or is too zany? What do you like/not like? Tell us about it in the comments below!
