Trippy Cold War-era Hungarian Star Wars movie posters

Tibor Helényi created a lot of great posters for films screened in the Hungarian People's Republic during its communist era, like these posters for the original Star Wars trilogy.

Above: A New Hope. Below: The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, respectively.

The first installment seems the most faithful to the vibe of the American original, with its triangular theme, though it's unlikely it would get past corporate. Unlike the original, he gives away the film's ending.
