"Look Up! Look Down! Look Out!" was the widely used tagline across the posters for the US campaign. The portrait format lends itself perfectly to the images accompanying each part of the tagline. The artwork by McGinnis and McCarthy of jetpacks, underwater fights and female adoration reinforce the film's claim of being "The Biggest Bond of All". Like many US insert posters for Bond films of this era, this first release format is hard to find. Despite some edgeware and paper loss, the artwork remains virtually untouched.
