Practically Perfect Poster...
Now that this is an example of art…
A lot of times of poster falls under the slavish dominion of a marketing department obsessed with stars. Where poster will convey nothing of the story, no semblance of art or creativity. Just a bland picture of an actor saying: "see this!".
Now, while this poster does have the stars, it also conveys what it's about in a very creative way. The shadows beneath each actor represent the persona of each character they're playing without saying a word. Very good job, marketing department.
Very good indeed…

You forgot to praise it for its use of shadows. You love shadows.
This is a good idea for a poster since the title alone tell a person nothing about what this is about (and just seeing images of the actors would do the same). Granted, I will admit that this might be too subtle (a person would need to really look a the poster, not just glance at it to notice the shadow forms). Hopefully there will be more marketing to get this movie known soon.
It's a bit like the Episode 1 poster, but still very very nice!
