Artist: Joseph Smith
Important Added Info: Note that there are two different variations of this poster. One of them has the "3-D" at top left colored in yellow, and also all of the letters of the title. The other is exactly the same as that poster, but the yellow is missing from the letters (and perhaps from the entire poster). Otherwise, the posters are exactly the same, including the NSS information at bottom. My personal belief is that there were two different print runs of this poster, and that one print run did not use the yellow, for unknown reasons (perhaps the answer could be as simple as them running out of yellow ink!). Please be aware of these two variations, and only bid on this poster if you wish to own this variation. If anyone knows more about this odd printing situation, please e-mail us and we will post it here. Also note that this movie was originally in 3-D. The studios created both 3D and 2D posters and lobby cards (the 2-D posters and lobby cards were for theaters that lacked the 3-D equipment). This poster is from the "3-D" release.
