This afternoon, we have posters for The King’s Speech, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and The Illusionist. The poster for the The King’s Speech is awful, which is a shame as the film has an insane amount of positive buzz and looks like a lock for an Oscar nomination. The poster for Narnia is much better even though they’ve already done one where they got up into Aslan’s grill. Finally, The Illusionist is trying to win people over with blurb-power. It’s not a bad strategy, but it short-changes the art of the film, which looks stunning.
Hit the jump to check out the posters along with a synopsis for each film. The King’s Speech opens November 26th. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader opens December 10th. The Illusionist opens December 25th.

Here’s the synopsis for The King’s Speech:
George VI, also known as Bertie, reluctantly takes the throne of England when his brother, Edward, abdicates in 1936. The unprepared king turns to a radical speech therapist, Lionel Logue, to help overcome his nervous stutter and the two forge a friendship.

Here’s the synopsis for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader:
Lucy and Edmund Pevensie return to Narnia with their cousin Eustace where they meet up with Prince Caspian for a trip across the sea aboard the royal ship The Dawn Treader.
Here’s the synopsis for The Illusionist:
A story about two paths that cross. An outdated, aging magician, forced to wander from country to country, city to city and station to station in search of a stage to perform his act meets a young girl at the start of her life’s journey. Alice is a teenage girl with all her capacity for childish wonder still intact. She plays at being a woman without realizing the day to stop pretending is fast approaching. She doesn’t know yet that she loves The Illusionist like she would a father; he already knows that he loves her as he would a daughter. Their destinies will collide, but nothing – not even magic or the power of illusion – can stop the voyage of discovery.
