American films are distributed all over the world, just like foreign films are distributed here. A majority of the time the posters widely vary, foreign posters are created by each country to market it to their respective audience and sometimes don't even look like they're for the same movie.
I was curious if posters have ever determined whether or not you saw a movie in the theatres, got you excited for a movie that didn't do live up to the poster, or if (like these examples) they could possibly change your opinion or the way you experienced a film if you saw one of them before seeing the movie.For example, the giant Leprechaun or the way the Poltergeist and Rosemary's Baby posters emphasize the demon/evil instead of just a static tv in the dark or a simple shot of a stroller.
Pretend you've never heard of these movies and based only on these posters, "Ticket? Or Skip it?"
