Two of the biggest movies of the upcoming holiday season, Sci-fi actioner Tron: Legacy, and the Ben Stiller/Robert De Niro comedy, Little Fockers have released new posters. In addition, Magnolia Pictures has tapped renowned British comic artist Simon Bisley to create a new poster for Neil Marshall’s latest thriller, Centurion, featuring the film’s main characters played by Michael Fassbender and Olga Kurylenko. Hit the jump for more:
The newest international Tron poster features a trenchcoated, moon boot-wearing, discus-wielding Jeff Bridges standing on a glassy, neon-blue lighted floor with a stark wasteland and dark clouds in the background. It’s as if the poster designers stole the image right from my recurring dreams. Every bit of promotional material for Tron: Legacy gets me mentally and physically excited. This is no exception. Tron is set to hit theaters December 17th. Poster via IMPA
Unlike Tron, the poster Meet the Parents: Little Fockers, the third installment in the highly successful Meet the… saga, is the first official poster to be released. And it’s fairly basic. Ben Stiller, decked out in a fine sweater, is in a staring contest with Robert De Niro with the suggestion, “Maybe kids will bring them closer?” written above them. Little Fockers comes out December 22nd. Poster via IMPA
Finally, Apple has premiered the new Centurion poster. Here’s the synopsis and some more info on Simon Bisley:
