See Magnetic Ink, a phototype from Photo-Lettering. Available in four weights, with your sample being typeset in one of the heavier. The album's "Space Oddity" type (not featured here) also contains lowercase (see a, c, e, i and t) that match Magnetic Ink. Unfortunately, no digital version.

Compare with type sample (A, E, I, O) featured on the 1974 poster for The Terminal Man:

No digital matches. It's likely custom brush lettering, originally drawn by a lettering artist for use on SNES box cover art and later reused for the N64 covers. Fairly common to find lots of custom brush lettering in 80s and 90s media - action film posters and comics in particular.

07.12.2021 um 08:09  [Antwort]  Star Wars alternative

It's custom lettering by Dan Perri, drawn in a vanishing point perspective and intended for the opening crawl of the 1977 film. I can say that Futura Display and Compacta Black were seemingly used in some of the other marketing for Star Wars, including some of the international logos drawn to match the style of Perri's logo. Whether or not those exact typefaces were the basis for Perri's original logo is not discernible. Below is an example of how it could have been done.

"A New Hope" and "The Empire Strikes Back" use News Gothic Extra Condensed (1908, not currently digitized). Current digital versions of News Gothic Extra Condensed are not quite the same and much less condensed.

A digital option might be Jefferson Gothic (1916), which was Monotype's alternate version of News Gothic Extra Condensed. Just stick to Jefferson Gothic's uppercase as the lowercase consists of alternates not seen in the original News Gothic Extra Condensed.

It is essentially custom lettering, originally created for the 1959 book of the same name. Aside from the subtle differences, Compacta wasn't released until 1963.

A much closer possibility is Filmotype Glenlake, originally released in 1955. It's not exact but very close. Maybe something they had typeset and then modified. Of course, there were also a number of similar gaspipe lettering styles that a decent lettering artist could easily whip up too, so it's hard to say for certain.

BD Doomed with stencil portions filled. Used to be available as a freebie. Don't be fooled by the Typedifferent page sample, that's BD Doomed Squareup - an alternate angular version of the same type design. Just make sure both are included if you order it.

Weiss Titling is only used in the opening title sequence of the film. The poster logo could be based on a typeface known as Argonaut - possibly the Semi-Condensed weight. Argonaut had several variants released by Headliners International. I believe the only digital version (bold weight) is known as OPTI Althea from the early 1990's Castcraft Software OPTIFont Collection. Several characters are slightly different (R, T) but others (C, S, X) are almost identical to Argonaut typeface specimens. Another possibility might be Elmont, which is also very close but further specimens would be needed to confirm that it matches. Elmont has no digital version.
