Two new posters hit the web yesterday. One poster for the re-release of Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace in 3D and the other for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.
If you didn’t know, Phantom Menace is the first film of many to be rereleased in 3D – that’s right we will receive ALL the Star Wars films in 3D at some point in our lives…
“f*$#%@!”. I can’t say that I’m jumping up and down with joy since I’ve never been a fan of Star Wars (call me crazy). However, I do respect the story and characters as much as any other film and because of that I can say the 3D poster is a complete disappointment to Star Wars fans.
I showed the poster to one of my friends and he went ballistic! The light sabers look like their from Toy’s R Us and the poster is missing some very essential characters (even I can tell you that). Disappointment? I think so.
Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace 3D hits theaters February 10th, 2012.
Question: What’s your opinion on the poster? Will you pay 14-17 bucks to see this film in theaters?
‘Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace’ 3D Poster:
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
SherlockHolmes has always been the smartest man in the room…until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large—Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris)—and not only is he Holmes’ intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective.
When the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead, the evidence, as construed by Inspector Lestrade (Eddie Marsan), points to suicide. But SherlockHolmes deduces that the prince has been the victim of murder—a murder that is only one piece of a larger and much more portentous puzzle, designed by one Professor Moriarty.
Mixing business with pleasure, Holmes tracks the clues to an underground gentlemen’s club, where he and his brother, Mycroft Holmes (Stephen Fry) are toasting Dr. Watson on his last night of bachelorhood. It is there thatHolmes encounters Sim (Noomi Rapace), a Gypsy fortune teller, who sees more than she is telling and whose unwitting involvement in the prince’s murder makes her the killer’s next target. Holmes barely manages to save her life and, in return, she reluctantly agrees to help him.
The investigation becomes ever more dangerous as it leads Holmes, Watson and Sim across the continent, from England to France to Germany and finally to Switzerland. But the cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead as he spins a web of death and destruction—all part of a greater plan that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history.
The film hits theaters December 16, 2011.
