Battle For the Planet of the Apes poster

If you study the film poster above, a number of things stand out as unusual. I’ll leave you to make your own notes, though I will say this – what’s with those glasses? This is a 1973 Italian poster for the final film in the ‘Apes series and, in Italy, it seems to be a very different movie!

Here’s how the poster looked elsewhere:

I’m not saying I don’t like the Italian artwork, but I would definitely be expecting ray-guns, had I visited the cinema based on that imagery.

Whilst I’m here, I might as well share this alternative Japanese poster which is far better in my opinion:
