Those playful scamps. You just know Guillermo del Torro and Peter Jackson were on their cell phones in front of their keyboards going...OK...3...2...1!! Then laughed maniacally as they launched posters for their new films, sending the world of geeks spinning wildly off its axis. Boys, you should never release such awesome at the same time. It throws off the balance of things. Now we'll have 10 more years of Snookie. Thanks lots.
Peter Jackson just dropped The Hobbit Comic-Con poster via his FaceBook page...as that is how the world communicates now and I love it because it drops everything in my lap. FACEBOOK IS THE GREAT EQUALIZER!!! He had this to say...
Hi everyone. Here's an exclusive Comic Con poster. Be sure to get your copy in San Diego and let me know what you think of it! Cheers, Peter J
At this point I can play it cool and say..yea...it's pretty...but the dork inside of me is going ohmygod as fast as it possibly can and in great succession.
We can assume Peter means you can grab a poster at the Warner Brothers booth (4545) or perhaps it will be given away at the end of the panel? Here are the details...
