This is an original, rolled, Italian theatrical one-sheet movie poster from 1980 for The Empire Strikes Back starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, James Earl Jones, Kenny Baker, Peter Meyhew, Frank Oz and Alex Guinness. Irvin Kershner directed the Star Wars sequel.
The advance poster measures 27.5" x 39.25" (it has not been trimmed) and is in very good condition. It has never been folded but was previously stored with posters that were tri-folded. It developed some very light, horizontal creases/waves at the top and lower center. There are only a few other, very tiny and light creases from previous handling.
Please look closely at the photo as it shows the exact poster you are buying. It is not cropped or a stock image. The black squares in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.
This extremely rare and collectible poster, printed in 1980 to tease the September Italian theatrical release of The Empire Strikes Back, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
