Two IRON MAN Posters- Domestic And International

The summer movie season seems to start earlier and earlier every year, this season starting on May 2nd with the opening of the Robert Downey, Jr. starring superhero flick Iron Man.

Two new posters for the film sprung up overnight- One for the domestic release (left) and one for the international release (right). They’re so similar, mostly just a rearrangement of the key images, that I have to wonder why did they bother to do two different posters at all. The only thing detracting from the international poster is the explosion in the lower right of the art. It looks as if someone realized there was empty space there and just plugged the first thing they could find into the hole. Also, am I the only one who looks at the silhouette of Iron Man in flight and can’t help but think of The Rocketeer?

My guess for the poster differences is because Paltrow and Downey have a bigger draw overseas. That’s why they are more prominent in the int’l poster
