Hey now, give the movie a chance. All you've seen of it thus far is from a marketing team, not the director.

You can't judge a movie by it's poster.

Good thing that's not what I'm doing. I have not been impressed with anything I've seen so far. If I decide not to give it a chance and it turns out to be amazing then I guess that's my loss.

While I agree the poster is garbage, I've never been compelled to see a film based solely on a single image supposedly used to entice people to watch it.

It's not like this is a good poster

but the film is amazing.

Yep, the old pointy headed old bastard seems to have developed some extreme forearm power in that poster.

Pretty neat for a lenticular 3-D poster. Those are always catered towards being attention grabbers. Only thing I don't like on it is the font... Like it or not, it's the monsters being spotlighted that'll get the asses in the seats.

They should make a cool one of that shot of the Memory of Alessa walking and everything burning away. Maybe even witha more artistic touch. Could be cool.

I thought I was the only one that noticed that. Seems like an oversight considering this same creature had trouble even swinging that same blade in the previous movie... but I guess "cool" has no continuity restraints, so ignore any in universe logic. :?

He's maybe using more modern metal working techniques to come up with his great knife's.
It's maybe ceramic, or some other lighter material.
Or maybe he's in the middle of a swing, with the motion blur removed.

Very true.

I hate how they are beefing him up way too much. Even in a picture for "The Book of Memories" they show Red Pyramid walking and holding the Great Knife directly in front of him at waist level. What is the deal? It is called "The Great Knife" for a reason!
For the poster pic, I am assuming that he is in mid-swing and it is coming down about to strike instead of him just holding it like he is pointing it at something.

I agree about having a poster with the Memory of Alessa on it! They should use that creepy image of her that is on the new cover of Fangoria. Everytime I see her on that with those stone cold black eyes, I get the chills!!! That would be a good poster...

That'd be a cool poster for sure!

If I were to make one, I'd make one like the poster of Rose walking through the fog for the first film. The difference would be, it would be Heather walking, and instead of it being the fog world, she'd be walking into the town in the Otherworld.

I think it's the more unique, interesting looking posters that sell films better. The one with Pyramid Head looks cheap and boring, more like a fan poster than an official piece of promotion.

Marketers do not understand such things sometimes.

Or, they know what'll attract attention. Not for sure, but since they're obviously trying to get horror fans into it, I think the poster is apt.

Something creepy attracts horror fans, not a pyramid headed muffintop holding Cloud's Buster Sword. Though I guess some people just love Red Pyramid, but this makes it hard to take seriously.

If there hell bent on having him go all Conan, then they should have him using his spear, as the great knife would be useless as a weapon.

That reminds me, why does nobody remember that he had a spear? He used it more than the Great Knife.

The sword is so much more iconic than the spear, though. I agree that the presence of his spear would be a refreshing, but his sword'll be what the general audience expects, especially after this poster.

There's been a lot of Mr. Head in photos and the trailers. It may just be marketing design choices, but I think we may see a lot more of him than in the first film, and he may even play a larger role in the events of the story. Probably as a vehicle for Alessa's goals like before. We've seen him
[Reveal] Spoiler:
basically attacking another monster in one of the teasers that is allegedly creature Claudia, so he's likely the head muscles of the Alessa/Heather campaign, as expected.
