STAR WARS, EPISODE V – THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, 1980. Original rolled, advance, teaser, Studio, Vader helmet, silver lettering 1 Sheet (27″ x 41″) movie theater poster for sale and starring: Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, director Irvin Kershner, screenplay’s by Leigh Brackett Lawrence Kasdan and writer/executive producer George Lucas and producer Gary Kurtz. “Coming to your galaxy this Summer.” characterizes the teaser poster for ESB. The opening scene from “The Force Awakens”; featuring the warn and morphed Vader helmet, is eerie when reminiscing on this teaser poster for the height of the Star Wars franchise. This poster represents the Vader fervor that occurred following the Star Wars release in 1977. He had become the most popular character in terms of the public and fan base (Winham & Vilmur, 2009) and that is why Lucas chose the Advance release poster for Empire Strikes back to feature Vader’s infamous helmet in all its GLORY!!
There are two types of original theatrical movie posters for the Empire Strikes back. There is the:
- NSS release
- Studio Release
Both versions were printed at the time of the theatrical release of the film, some by the national screen service and some by the studio. Both are original and neither clearly demonstrates more value over the other. Popular auction sites show the collecting market has not differentiated any difference in value. Studio printing started happening sometime in the late 70s. This poster is the Studio release, to see the NSS release <Click Here>.
