I must admit, I was a sceptic at first, but everything we’ve been seeing for the film over the past few months has made a believer out of me – I especially recommend the latest viral teaser video for the film.

A new character poster for the hero himself has been released over at IMP Awards, and it’s pretty excellent. Just the right amount of cute and cuddliness / determination and machismo.

Puss In Boots is directed by Chris Miller (Shrek the Third) and will see,

“the legendary Puss In Boots (Antonio Banderas) going on a heroic journey, teaming up with mastermind Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) and the street-savvy Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek) to steal the famed Goose that lays the Golden Eggs.”

I really enjoy the use of adjectives like ‘legendary’ and ‘heroic’ in there, as well as referring to Zach Galifianakis’ character as a ‘mastermind’. Excellent stuff.

There’s a little over a month left to go until it’s released here in the UK on 9th December, but it really looks like it will be worth the wait, and it’s something I think a lot of its target audience are quietly optimistic about. Without further ado, here’s the new poster to feast your eyes on. As usual, click to enlarge.
