"Chronicles of Narnia" poster
I'm assuming most of the interested parties have seen this by now, but I wanted to try out Blogger's new photo option so I figured this'd be as good a reason as any...
"Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe" finally has it's one sheet, and as far as I'm concerned this is damn near the best poster for anything I've seen in years. But I'll let you be the judge of that.
Ain't it purty, though?
What I like about this is, it's a massively eye-catching poster and it works on both levels: If you're a fan, you're getting a good solid look at the film versions of Aslan, Jadis, the children and even some of the monsters. If you're not, I can't imagine that seeing this on a movie theater wall between all the other posters mainly consisting of actor's headshots wouldn't make you pause and wonder just what it is you're looking at.
A small note of controversy HAS been generated in the fandom, though: The poster is the first indication of any noteworthy changes from the text, in that it seems the Witch's sleigh is here being pulled by polar bears as opposed to reindeer. My take: Polar bears are cooler :)
