Nice poster. Bit disappointed it's not a Drew Struzan, though.
Looks like a Photoshop job to me.

Hope the Starkiller base isn't just a Death Star rehash.

I am loving the Starkiller Base, a planet not a space station? Therefore, I am guessing that the X-Wings flying over the lake in the trailer is the equivalent of the Death Star trench run??

Not saying you're wrong Bonsai, but it doesnt seem to have his 'textured' style.
Can't see his usual signature either.
The lens flare looks a bit photoshoppy as well.

I actually just edited my post because I wasn't 100% sure!

This site here is attributing it to Drew Struzan: http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Star-War ... 88917.html

I agree though it does look cleaner and more photo-real than most of his work... would like to be completely sure.

Love the poster but no Luke? I am just as excited about seeing this as anyone else (seriously I made girly noises when I saw it) but can I just check are we now posting all Episode 7 stuff here in the Vintage collecting chat - "vintage Kenner and Palitoy Star Wars toys from 1977-1985 era".

I remember this was brought up by someone else and I honestly can’t remember if Ed was fine with posts about the new film being in here ?

If we all just post in this section it'll end up like facebook!

I'm old and like structure - damn you young kids with your modern ways :D

My god it's awful. Truly dreadful.

With all the talent out there, this is what they come up with? It's just crammed in, badly composed and like a trillion other film posters out there. Just looks photoshop'd. The art of the film poster is truly dead. There is no flair, imagination or passion here. It looks like it's been designed by committee, 'lets have this - lets have that - we need to see this' and in the end you're left with nothing of the artists vision.

This will not be adorning any of my walls.

However, that does not mean the film will be shite ;)

The film poster could be a lot better I guess from an artistic point of view - but for shear presentation of the characters and the film then I am sold. The two clips above all give me tingles - the music is spot on, the action scenes look just like the are supposed to - this film is going to be a-bloody-mazing - I am sure of that now
