007.com revealed five new UK Skyfall posters today and successfully released the first bit of advertisement for the film that made me, a die hard Bond fan, not so happy. These posters could be more boring, but it would be pretty darn hard, especially the multi-character one. They’re all pretty dull, but that one just copy and pastes the single-character ones without even attempting to make it anything but four separate pictures stuck onto one poster.
I suppose they were going for a really simplistic feel, but these things just look lifeless. Daniel Craig’s poster is especially hideous thanks to a massive amount of photoshopping that makes him look more like a Ken doll than James Bond. I’m also really hoping that isn’t a blue velvet tuxedo because if so I’m going to burn this place to the ground. That crap may be trendy, but it sure as hell isn’t Bond.
