A lot of the iconic 1980s Stephen King book covers use Pacella Latina, a typeface designed by Vincent Pacella for Photo-Lettering, Inc. Trims have been made to the wedge-shaped serifs on some letters for aesthetic reasons or to help tighten the spacing without compromising legibility.

"Oxford Films" appears to be Blippo, mostly. See also, the very similar Burko, ITC Bauhaus and Pump.

Franklin Gothic. Possibly in a faux italic. Many interpretations, but most digital versions will probably pass as the same. Some versions of it have slightly differently rendered E's and S's.

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.



Coliseum by Thomas E. Harvey. Based on Koloss (1923) by Jakob Erbar.

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.
