Recently Izismile ran a gallery of alternate movie posters, taking familiar films and showing what they might have been like if made 30 or more years ago with actors at that time. For example, Terminator made in 1977:
Others include these:
Some just don't work, such as this Wolverine movie poster:
But then, the actual Wolverine movie didn't really work either. Another odd attempt was Die Hard with Leonard Nimoy?? Try Burt Reynolds for a more likely period choice. I bet that Terminator would have been pretty good though. The Matrix with Bruce Lee would have been interesting too.
