Another Brand New Poster for Pixar's Up!

Huh, this came out of nowhere. To continue the minimal marketing for their next feature film Up, Pixar has debuted yet another teaser poster to compliment the original one we ran in October. This poster features lead character Carl Fredricksen, his young sidekick Russell, and a dog that we haven't ever seen before, all riding on a hose hanging down from his floating house. Definitely looks fun but isn't anything too new, although at least it's some extra promotion. I hope Up is gaining as much early buzz as Wall-E had at the same time last year, because I hope it does as well as their past films. What do you think?
Pixar's Up is directed Pete Docter, who also directed Monsters, Inc previously in addition to writing the stories for Toy Story and Toy Story 2. The film is co-directed and written by Bob Peterson, who wrote Finding Nemo previously. Disney is planning to debut up in theaters everywhere on May 29th, 2009 next summer.
