19 Foreign Movie Posters That Will Melt Your Mind (PICTURES)

When our movies go overseas, it's natural that they'd have to tweak the titles and posters to fit a different audience. However, when our movies go to places like Russia, Poland, and Japan (to name a few) the adapted movie posters can not only blow your mind with their absurdity, but make the film nearly unrecognizable. We're not sure why Poland reduced "The Fly" to a cartoon fly throwing up, or why Russia thinks "Star Wars" deserves a poster with a cowboy on it, but it's become obvious that something gets lost in translation when these changes are made.

*Some of the posters are attributed to the continent of Africa, as we were unsure of the specific nation they were from.
