The Phantom Menace poster with Darth Vader’s Shadow was way better than the film. I’m too lazy to link it.

At one point I wanted to put the three teaser posters from LotR in my movie room. Unfortunately, after releasing absolutely beautiful teaser posters for Fellowship and Two Towers, they released a shit teaser poster for Return of the King.

The Phantom Menace is a clear winner as far as teaser posters go.

Same here. We've discussed it before, years ago. Another forum member shared that they worked somewhere at NewLine and had seen a third poster that was never produced. I'll see if I can dig up that post.

*edit - apparently I started that thread back in 2005 looking for that third poster. Anyway, here's the post (pics are broken though):

further, it was supposed to mirror this teaser poster for fellowship.



a bit of trivia, this fellowship poster features the hands, faces and bodies of people that work here. the guys in the boats are editors here.

Interesting. That would have been great to having a matching teaser for RotK. Once I realized there wasnít a better poster for the third film, I moved on the choosing three different posters altogether.

Re: What is your favorite teaser poster?

I think it might have been used as the actual movie poster as well. But I'll still count it.
