After the most recent action-packed, fantasy trailer and a batch of character posters for DreamWorks Animation's Rise of the Guardians, I have to say that I'm pretty stoked to see how this Avengers-style ensemble of Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, The Tooth Fairy and more turns out. It seems to blend the action of Kung Fu Panda with the fantasy of Shrek, and that sounds just fine to me. Now a new poster has arrived assembling all our heroes onto one final theatrical poster. Personally, I kind of wish there was some looming darkness to represent Pitch (Jude Law), but it's still a pretty cool poster anyway. Check it out!
Here's the new poster for DreamWorks Animation's Rise of the Guardians (click for high-res version):
When an evil spirit called Pitch becomes bent upon taking over the world by inspiring fear in the hearts of kids everywhere, a group of our greatest heroes, Santa (Alec Baldwin), the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher) and Jack Frost (Chris Pine), band together for the first time, determined to stand in Pitch’s way. Peter Ramsey (head of story on Monsters vs. Aliens) is directing Rise of the Guardians from a script by the book's author William Joyce and screenwriter David Lindsay-Abaire (Inkheart). DreamWorks Animation brings the film to theaters in 3D just before Thanksgiving on November 21st.
