Avatar poster inspired by Stephen King novel?

Was the new Avatar poster inspired by a 1980 Stephen King paperback?

It is probably a coincidence but a comment on Hollywood Elsewhere by LexG points out that the new Avatar teaser poster (which I’m guessing is official, despite previous fake posters and trailers for this film) looks a lot like the 1980 paperback cover of The Stand by Stephen King.

Is it really? Seriously, how many more (uninspired) movie posters have you seen that are like this? Hundreds. It’s fine as a teaser poster but n othing to write home about. In fact, put two of them together and you have Face Off. You heard it here first, Face Off inspired the Avatar poster.
