This poster for the release of Mad Max 2 in the former Yugoslavia uses the title Drumski Ratnik (Road Warrior, echoing the film's US title) and tagline 'Odlučiće jedan čovek' ('one man will decide').

The design showcases a futuristic vehicle in the centre, flanked by two muscular men holding weapons while a building explodes in the background.

It's a very engaging and threatening design that would have attracted potential audiences. It's also a stylised visual interpretation of the blinding heat, dust and barren landscape in which the film is actually set; this poster arguably has a more traditional science-fiction feel.
