Here is the poster that accompanied the original 1984 release of 'The Terminator.' This was before anyone realised that the man on the poster would become one of the most famous people in the world.

Poland took some interesting, creative liberties with how they sold 'The Terminator' to audiences. Perhaps the bright colours represent what it is like to see in T-800 vision.

The American poster for 'Jurassic World' intimidated us with the breathtaking size of the park's newest creature, Mosasaurus.

Universal Pictures

In China, the poster featured star Chris Pratt and gives away a prominent scene in which Indominus Rex, the park's most feared dinosaur, breaks free. The presence of 'IMAX 3D' is much bigger and more prominent on this poster as well.

Universal Pictures

The first poster for 'Ant-Man' released in the U.S. played off of the hero's small stature.

Marvel

The Russian poster for 'Ant-Man' takes on a more artistic, almost surreal approach to Marvel's tiniest hero.

This poster for Poland seems less like marketing material and more like a drawing that would accompany 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.'

Paramount Pictures

The 1968 poster for '2001: A Space Odyssey,' a film way ahead of its time, sold audiences 'an epic drama of adventure and exploration.'

MGM

This Hungarian poster manages to capture the trippy nature of the film.

This is how the world was first introduced to a galaxy far, far away with the first 'Star Wars' poster.
