This image (above
) mysteriously appeared today on Facebook - and methinks its the teaser poster for Genndy Tartakovsky's Popeye
feature, currently in production at Sony Animation for 2015 Columbia Pictures release.
I assume its the new teaser poster - a variant of the in-house teaser poster that has been on display at the Culver City lot the past few months (see iPhone pic below).
Well blow me down! David Gerstein has found that this image was created as part of the back cover graphics (below
) for the 2004 direct-to-video CGI special, Popeye Voyage: The Quest For Pappy
. That's a relief! I expect the new Sony film to be a significant improvement.
