One of my friends in US managed to get me one of the Mondo posters as well. I hope they release a larger version of the poster later this year.
Well said. I agree with all of this. Hadn't read the books in years until recently, and was nervous going in. Sat there for most of the film with a huge grin on my face thinking "if only Lucas had treated his universe with the same respect." The structure/airship designs and mechanics were pitch-perfect to me; the only thing I missed was the 'day vs. night' aspect to the battles in the books, but it's impossible to stick all the details in there.
Would love to see an extended edition to flesh out the River journey etc., got a bit exposition heavy in a couple of scenes to move things along in the middle (amazing they crammed in as much as they did). The end battle also feels abridged but the tag at the end makes up for it. They definitely don't spoon feed any plot stuff to you so helps to have basic JC knowledge going in
Also surprised they're not selling it to women more-there's a believable romance story in there and the actress playing Dejah does a great job- they kept Burrough's framing device, provided a great setup for a next chapter if they make itRE: Posters
- yep I'll admit I'd hoped they'd go a bit bigger for the litho, but the print itself looks nice- should be getting a few extra copies soon if you end up missing it in the theater.
