Out-of-Context Posters #26: E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)

Movie posters often use their most iconic scene as their focus. Think Tom Cruise hanging off a building for the Mission Impossible 4 poster. But what would happen if instead those posters would feature something completely out-of-context?

I’ve always loved spotting the Easter eggs between Steven Spielberg and George Lucas projects, such as Star Wars‘ R2-D2 cameo on the mothership in Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Club Obi-Wan in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (just to name a couple). Perhaps the most well-known are the complementary connections between Spielberg’s E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and Lucas’ infamous galaxy far, far away with Yoda appearing in the former and a pack of E.T.’s appearing in Star Wars – Episode I: The Phantom Menace (is it a pack of E.T.’s or a herd? A flock? A litter of E.T.’s sounds about right).

I am a writer, video producer, and avid film buff. I've also been pegged by a few as the second coming of the Messiah although I don't believe it. Just to be on the safe side, however, I am willing to accept your prayers and any monetary contributions you are willing to part with. Especially automobiles. Yes, automobiles will suffice.
