This had to be the easiest "twenty minutes in photoshop" poster EVER, but still... cool and creepy.

I'd imagen that it was more then 20 minutes in photoshop, but then again that's just my take on it. Why does it look so cool? cause it's a matrix reloaded poster. duh

I find the other four posters just as cool.

Especially Trinity's.

I thought you were referring to the other posters as well from the thread title. First thought that came to mind was that they are headless.

I like the concept of the new posters....but there's something disturbing about the androgyny/alienness of Reeves/Moss/Fishburne in those posters.

I love the idea of the Agent Smith poster, but it's not as good as it could have been... I mean, come on...the prominant four faces are just two of them, copied....which I guess works but couldn't they have gotten like 4 different shots of Smith, and used those to make the poster, so the easy to see ones weren't carbon copies of the other ones...if that makes sense...it would have been cooler with more variety.

Actually all the faces are different from each other. Sure they look very similar, but if you pay attention to the details of their face, you can tell they are different.
