The Soviet Union's Bizarre Star Wars Promotional Posters

This Blog Rules has pictures of four promotional posters for the censored and modified Star Wars movies released in the Soviet Union. They look surreal, like something out of Brazil rather than the plot of Star Wars. Would any Russian-speaking Neatoramanaut care to translate?

In soviet union (may be now too) every movie theater had an artist to draw posters and he did that usually unsober without even watching a movie :)

its the newspaper that 'Brazils' it for me.

I saw line a week or so ago with about 50 movie posters with similar strangeness...

People on the forum were speculating that perhaps they did this to avoid paying for image copyrights for the actual posters, but i dont know how true that is.

I think the poster means "Brazil" as in the 1985 movie from Terry Gilliam starring Jonathan Pryce. And yes, they do look like they would fit in to the movie "Brazil".
