IMAX posters are usually simple, yet sum up the raw emotion of a movie, and the latest one — for Star Wars: The Last Jedi — shows off how a poster should be done. It's the first of four limited posters that will be revealed in the upcoming weeks. Crafted by pop culture artist Dan Mumford, the posters look to set up the film’s most memorable moments.
The first poster features Rey training on Ahch-To as Luke Skywalker watches over her. The scene shows a glimmering light that seems hopeful compared to the bleak tone of the most recent trailer. Rey’s training is crucial to what lies ahead, much like when Luke trained with Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back. Check it out below:
Fans can get a copy of the posters by attending IMAX screenings from December 17, 2017 through January 7, 2018.
There's no word yet on what future IMAX posters will reveal, but possibilities include Snoke and Kylo Ren (giving us a nice balance with the first poster), Finn and Poe (representing the new generation of rebels), and General Leia Organa (it would be perfect to end a great series of IMAX posters with a tribute to the late Carrie Fisher).
Either way, The Last Jedi looks to be on par with The Empire Strikes Back, and the first IMAX poster promises some quiet moments along with the action. Let’s hope the other posters look just as good.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres on December 15, 2017.
