Dark and operatic, it captures the sinister elements of the film while leaving the more whimsical elements to be discovered. Brilliant.
Just looking at the poster makes me want to watch the movie again. Seriously, it just makes me smile.
Simple and cheeky. It manages to hint at both the intensity and the (very) dark humor of this most unusual war movie.
A most evocative image, recalling Michelangelo's Creation of Adam. Sure, it was made as a marketting tool to appeal to Christian audiences, but it still manages to distill the most important aspect of the film, which is E.T.'s bond with Eliot.
How much fun is this poster? If you'd never seen the movie, wouldn't just looking at the poster make you want to? Plus, I'm not sure a tagline has ever been more true.
