Is it just me, or do they look high in this photo? Normally I prefer International posters because they use more colors and have a certain edge to them that US posters are missing, but in the new Ice Age 3 International poster that just popped up on IESB something doesn’t look right.

I love the Ice Age series (mainly for the squirrel, Scrat forever trying to hide his acorn), but this looks like something you would see on a cereal box. I get that they are trying to get all the characters into the shot, but everything seems too clustered and they look like they’re on something. Maybe the Japanese audience likes them with a little extra sparkle in their eyes, but to me they all just seem like someone slipped some uppers in their drinking water.

Check out the US vs. International posters below and tell us which one you prefer…

Synopsis: After the last film Ice Age: The Meltdown, Scrat is still on the hunt to hold onto his beloved acorn (yay!), while finding a possible romance in a female sabre-toothed squirrel named Scratte. Manny and his friends life begin to chande as Manny and Ellie, are expecting a baby. Diego is fed up with being treated like a house-cat and ponders the notion that he is becoming too laid-back. Sid begins to wish for a family of his own, and so steals some dinosaur eggs which leads to Sid ending up in a strange underground world where his herd must rescue him, and we are introduced to a one-eyed weasel known as Buck who hunts dinosaurs.

Which poster do you prefer? The crazy international or the plain US one?
