Watchmen Banner!!!

I…just…don’t know anymore. I have been the biggest cheerleader for this film, the biggest geek about it (at least among my fellow rejects), but even I am having trouble keeping my head and my enthusiasm above water when we’re inundated by so many posters.

got their paws on this new IMAX Poster for the flick, and you’ll need to head over there for a higher res look.

I think this looks fairly incredible, but I’m not sure that it will drive non-fans, that crucial audience, to the film. There’s not a lot of face-recognition on the poster, and for someone unfamiliar with the comic, it looks like a bunch of weird-o’s in Halloween costumers. Which, it sort of is actually. But is that enough of a sell?
