20th Century Fox Original 30x40 Movie Poster Rolled Fine Condition Art by Tom Jung

Original 20th Century-Fox U.S. 30x40 poster, rolled, for the Irvin Kershner directed science fiction adventure, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (1980) starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Billy Dee Williams. This was the second film to come out in the STAR WARS series, and many critics consider it to be the best film in the original trilogy with a distinctive ÒdarkÓ side. The special effects were considerably better than the first movieÑfrom the amazing invasion near the beginning by the huge Imperial Walkers, reminiscent of Hannibal use of elephants in the Punic Wars, to the ultra-exciting light saber duel between Luke and Vader at the conclusion. In between, we are first introduced to Jedi master Yoda, who must try to train the impatient Luke in the ways of a Jedi warrior. While STAR WARS is optimistic with a happy ending, this film explores the overwhelming power and relentless evil of the Dark Side. It begins gloomily and ends with just a glimmer of hope after a finale of betrayal and revelation. This poster was never used and has never been folded. Condition fine, and would be graded better than that except for some small spots in the right border area. A nice example of this style. MovieArt Austin guarantees this poster to be the original Japanese B2 poster for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
