For all that trailers, leaked images and early promo pictures can help to define a movie, for many of us it remains the film's poster that sticks in our mind the longest, and irrevocably alters our expectations - and our experiencing - of some of the most exciting movies of our time.

When you think Jurassic Park, for instance, it's hard to escape that iconic silhouetted dinosaur logo. With Batman, the original movie practically IS that gigantic shining logo. And with The Avengers, so much of what the movie became to us was, in part at least, defined by that already iconic group shot.

What, though, if classic movies had gone a very different way with their original posters? Would our experience of the movie's have been altered in some way? We'll most likely never know for sure - but as it turns out:
