Labyrinth Trifecta

Recently, I've been looking at movie posters from the 80's, sending my brain on a spinning spree of warm, nostalgic, bunny feelings.

I've always liked seeing posters from different countries/releases for the same film, so here, let me present the first of what I will aim to make a more regular occurrence.

Jim Henson's Labyrinth, in three-form.

While I like the dark and shadowy feeling of the first one, the middle version will always be my favourite for two reasons: 1) the beautiful detail and design, and 2) the poster adorned my bedroom wall for several years.

The third one suffers a bit from Poster-Floating-Syndrome -- a lot of disembodied floating heads and a giant Sarah-carrying crystal ball, floating, while Jareth's floating head seemingly floats out of a black hole.
