Thanks for showing us the poster . . .
That's a fairly interesting image. What do the (Spanish?) words say about it?
I see a pyramid of scared and focussed people, possibly mobilizing against an unknown threat.
Anyone else . . . ?
its cool but i'd like to have one or two actors names up there. also where's hellboy perlman? hopefully this version isn't the only one seen throughout the world. i'd like to see a variety and maybe a tag line as well.
that's perlman? it really doesn't look like him but the scan is dark so maybe so. also the supersized version you gave is smaller than the first one. maybe its my computer or my settings but i can't see the names. i'll keep trying.

is it common to include all these names for a promotional poster or is it something else entirely. it seems more like a informational piece with the hopes of selling it to more industry people and different markets for distribution purposes.
i agree with the lords of the ring reference for it feels out of place but i've seen it in other posters so it doesn't surprise me. i'm sure there will be multiple posters with different versions and i hope it would include some of the actors names. the best way to sell it is to let the audience know who's in it. it does look like a painting but its still appealing and peeks my interest even more.
( I don't quite get the likening of the poster to the one for 300 that I've heard online other than perhaps the lighting of the scene)
I would assume the various credits on the list are correct but the misspelling would seem to indicate an unfinished product.
Quoted from AD..."So this gets me to one of my main peeves with the poster which is the big letters that say "from LORD OF THE RINGS producer Barrie Osborne." I understand selling the films epic aspects and the need to market to a broad audience, but I think you get the idea from the artwork itself anyway. ( I don't quite get the likening of the poster to the one for 300 that I've heard online other than perhaps the lighting of the scene) But if he really only gets an exec. producer credit than people are going to look at that like a cheap ploy - a cash-in if you will. There are some similarities in costume design and stuff between this and LOTR and Tolkien is said to have taken some inspiration from Beowulf and other Norse things too, but I don't think it quite works for this poster. But I'm also not sure the text of this image is final either.
Regarding the artwork itself I don't really have any complaints. Of note though is that I'm pretty sure it's a painting even if it was done on a computer or touched up afterward. The artists doesn't seem to quite get hands right."
