    Yay Photoshop!

    Beaker's eyes kinda weird me out; he's the only one not looking straight ahead. Walter looks pretty big. And what is the thing running diagonally between Statler and Waldorf? It almost looks like an arm.

    I like the one that actually says "THE MUPPETS" better rather than the one with just the big M! I feel like Jim would be proud of the direction that this movie is going! :jim:

    I'm gonna sound like a broken record but I really don't like these. The posers look so lifeless. The reason the Drew Struzan posters worked so well is they made the characters seem animated and not just a collection of lifeless puppets. Disney should be pull out all the stops with the marketing of this movie in order to to appeal to a new audience used to a CG saturated marketplace and I feel this is a really poor effort and a missed opportunity!

    Everybody says it's like one of the Toy Story 3 posters. To me, this is similar to the Letters to Santa cover.

    I know from which he comes from. He's been working on a photorealistic illustration that he tried to submit, but he got turned down because, and let's not forget this... anytime you send something to a company that owns it, it's unsolicited work. E.i. if you want to work on the Simpsons, DON'T write a sample Simpsons script.

    And while that's the way things ARE done (not to mention a LOT of nepotism) I can't help side with Reeves, ONLY because they really don't seem to get posers anymore. I mean, they weren't wonderful to begin with...

    I too miss illustrated posters. Imagine if they got that guy back to do a wonderful retro Muppet Movie poster? I mean, the movie has an 80's fixing stuff up montage, an 80's Robot... why not an 80's style poster?

    I don't love it, but I don't hate it... I'd be glad to buy it for the collectible factor (I just greatly dislike Late 90's-present movie posters... all lame photo shoots with no emotion... and I don't just mean Muppet movies... everything looks that way now). It could be much much worse, but somehow, i think the first poster captured lightning in a bottle... they looked a lot more lively in that one.

    Plus, I agree... it's a bit too much like the TS3 poster, jumbling up every character in the movie they can. It's still much better than those poorly Photoshopped puzzles and calendar shots we got, though.

    But still... this poster IS still making me excited for this film.

    For those keeping score, here are the other Muppet movie posters...

    Now for the most part, I think they all really look good (except I don't like how Piggy looks in the MTM poster), and the illustrated ones make the characters a LOT more lifelike than the posers ever would. But that's an artform that's completely lost now, and I think we all came to expect that.

    Still, an illustrated retro-80's looking poster would have been great. The film makers want to capture the essence of the first 3, and it's a shame the studio wouldn't have done the same for the poster.

    Though I wonder if this is the international one... it DOES say "coming to cinemas." No one on this side of the pond talks like that.
