While I continue my one-man boycott of anything that doesn’t have Bubo, the rest of the civilized world is somehow simultaneously refreshing the Butt-Numb-A-Thon list to see if it’s finally posted and drooling over these new posters for Clash of the Titans.
I don’t really know if anyone is drooling, but I have to assume that it’s the third most popular activity on the internet behind tugging it to that scene of Katie Holmes in The Gift and surfing 1–800-Flowers.com for a thoughtful present for your mother’s birthday.
Since they are spy shots of some in-progress posters, according to Aint It Cool, they aren’t high quality, but they give an idea of how cool these posters will end up looking. That style, that bronze and ancient blood style of a heightened drama, really works here. Or, at least, it looks like it will work if the posters get close to looking like this.
Here’s four of ’em. The rest are over at Aint It Cool, and I even here tale that HitFix has one:
Editor’s Note: These posters have been removed at the request of Warner Bros. Pictures. We’ve been promised high resolution versions once their officially released though, so stay tuned.
So we’ve got Gemma Arterton as Io, a little snake-headed Medusa action, the Kraken about to catch a light lunch, and Sam Worthington screaming about Pegasus saddle sore. Hey, man. It happens. And it hurts.
But no Bubo.
My strike continues.
What do you think? Did you know that ‘bubo’ can also mean the swelling of the lymph nodes? No you didn’t. Stop lying, Doctor.
