Impressive Angels and Demons Poster Revealed?

I completely forgot about one of next summer's big films - Angels & Demons. But thankfully we've got a great reminder today in the form of a teaser poster. The only thing is this wasn't officially released, as far as we know, although it very much looks like it could be. This comes to us today from an Icelandic movie site called Topp5.is (via SlashFilm). This is a bit too impressive to be a fan creation, in my own opinion, and until we're convinced otherwise, I'll call this is the first official teaser poster for the film. It's not much to look at, but if you look at this closely, you may end up appreciating it a lot more than after first glance.
Just to point this out, one half of the statue is an angel, the other half is a demon. If this is an official poster, I'm a bit disappointed that they didn't feature any anagrams like from the book. That would've been just as cool as a dual statue. Maybe they were too lazy or too worried that it'd be too hard to figure out?
Angels & Demons is directed by prolific filmmaker Ron Howard, of everything from Willow to Backdraft to Apollo 13 to A Beautiful Mind to the previous The Da Vinci Code. The script was written by veteran screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, of Lost in Space, A Beautiful Mind, Cinderella Man, The Da Vinci Code, and I Am Legend previously. This is based on Dan Brown's bestselling novel of the same name. Sony will be debuting Angels & Demons in theaters on May 15th, 2009 next summer.
