Favourite Star Wars Poster #3
The Empire Strikes Back by Roger Kastel
Famously known as the ‘Gone With The Wind‘ poster, as the composition is based on the poster for that film. The famous poster for ‘Gone With The Wind’ was actually by Tom Jung, who himself created equally classic, and iconic, art for Star Wars.
This is a real fan favourite, as it puts Han Solo centre stage, where he really belongs. The cold and subdued colours that dominate the whole image really give the poster a tone that matches that of the darker middle chapter in the Star Wars Trilogy. It really is the best poster for the best Star Wars film. Not much more I can say.
