Blastr.com has a fun post looking at foreign movie posters for some very well known American sci-fi movies.
Now most of these movies are iconic films in the genre, but you'd never guess it from these weird ass graphics. It's one thing to use Campbell's Soup cans in the Army of Darkness poster. We get it, foreign ad agency guy: the dude who plays Ash has the same last name as the "Andy Warhol soup." Fun-nee.
The Ghostbusters poster is six kinds of fucked up. What the HELL is that thing supposed to be, a jester?
The Gremlins poster looks like a cheap supermarket greeting card.
King Kong has a shark in one hand, a snake wrapped around the other, and one foot on the Titantic, but at least he's all ferocious and shit.
In the Empire Strikes Back poster, Yoda looks like he's had the contents of six vacuum cleaners dumped on his head, which is the correct look for Yoda in the PREQUELS but certainly not in Empire.
