As is the case with Teaser Trailers, which get the audience excited for an upcoming film, Teaser Posters are also meant to do the same thing; bring a wandering eye over to the poster to generate interest in the movie. Often different in style and composition from Release Posters, the Teaser versions give us a chance to get a first look at the tone of the film.
The Star Wars and Indiana Jones sagas have always provided the movie-going public with interesting Teaser material. Like the unmasking of Darth Vader in Return Of The Jedi, the Teaser Poster for Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith has been revealed on the official Star Wars site.
As a whisp of dark smoke or an ominous cloud could, Anakin Skywalker's billowing cape suggests the helmet of The Dark Lord of The Sith he is to become. The poster is similar in tone to the Episode I Teaser Poster which showed a young Anakin Skywalker's shadow as the form of Darth Vader.
