You should check out something called "The Empire Strikes Back", found in the "independent" section of your local video store.

Wow, is that terrible! It looks like a very poorly made fan poster; not something from a professional company like LFL.

It doesn't look evil or menacing; just very silly. Vader's face in Anakin's cloak? As said before, that's the best they could do? Blah.

This poster is a huge letdown. How could Lucasfilm possibly fuck up a poster for the final Star Wars film ever! Is that seriously supposed to be Vader's mask on the cloak? Is Vader smiling? It looks like a complete mess. You can hardly make anything out. I cant believe those morons actually think we'd want to own a t-shirt or coffee mug with this lousy image on it.

Is there a hi-res pic of this anywhere?

That looks more fan made than the ones that were fan made.

I saw a cool one recently that had Anakin being shrowded with the form of Vader, and a lot of people thought that it was the official poster.

Don't know if it works or if the pixels are darker this time, but take it FWIW.

I didn't think the teaser poster could get worse than what we had for Episode II. I was wrong.

So judging by this poster it looks like in Episode III that Anakin will turn into...Dark Helmet?!

I like it, but Darth looks too cartoony....like the Ralph McQuarie drawings from the first trilogy... I think the fanmade poster is fucking sweet though... Lucas should have gone with that. The banner is alright, but again, the fan image is so much cooler it's kind of sad.

Here's a straightened-out version I made. Man, I really liked this image too...

That is the worst poster I have ever seen. I can't believe that fan-made posters look 1000% better than the official one.

What a joke. (And this is from a non-sw basher)

I'm sorry, but that fanmade poster is absolutely ****in' awful. I'm not carried away with the official poster, but it is better than that fanmade piece of crap.

Well, look at it this way. Episode I teaser poster was on of the best ever. Yet many didn't like the film. So maybe it's reversed this time, at least for those people. Either way, it's just a poster and isn't worth going nuts over.

I don't think they cared about whether people wanted to own it when they designed it. I'm sure they'll put it all over a bunch of crap to sell, but I doubt that was something they took into account.

Either way, it's hard to image people going apesh*t over a poster. Star Wars fans really need to get some perspective.

Sorry the new poster sucks ass. Is that The Crow in the background, looks like he has that eye thing going on....or maybe I need to put the weed away.

I like the first one better for Episode 1, with the kid on the front.

Now if this has any truth than may be a little better. theforce.net is saying that the poster actually has different SW characters in the picture but I am not seeing them. What do you guy's think?
This pic points them out.

Thank you. That image on the rebel blockade looks terrible. First time using photoshop type stuff. Really amateurish. Not to mention unoriginal.

As for the other fan one with the smoke, not bad, but still not great, I mean it is just a photo of Anakin imposed on Vader. Big whoopi-di-do. Ooooh a cape, oh, and his face is IN the helmet... and the smoke in the background. WOW! Pretty boring, IMO.

At least the official is unique and tried something different. It could have used some tweaking, but I don't think it is that bad. I like the color scheme.

I see the vader sillhouette with its back to Anakin. Don't know about the others though. It may just be power of suggestion.

That must have been one really packed in bowl they were smoking. First off... fett, not in it. It really doesn't seem possible to have all those three vaders. It's pointless to try to look into it and try to see something else that isn't there. The poster just is not that good.

That's because it was made by a fan. Were it released as the official teaser it would've been cleaned up and polished and worked a million times better then this piece of shit which has no such excuse for looking fan-made. Seriously, this thing looks like some junior high school chick who draws horses on her binders took five minutes off from putting hearts on things and used Poser to make another drawing of her favorite heart-throb Hayden Timberlake. Nice colors. And all that flowing - you have to have a lot of flowing. It flows. Very menstrual.

Hand me the barf bag. You know Lucasfilm has failed when the teaser looks less of an official release poster than THIS:
