Last week, Chris gave us a look at the new trailer for the Russian horror-fantasy film Day Watch, and gave us a pretty solid recommendation. Solace in Cinema is now hosting the new poster for the film. If you are like me and didn't get a chance to see the first film (Night Watch), and the trailer * peaks piques your interest, it is readily available on DVD. Luckily, if you don't have the two hours to invest, Fox Searchlight has a 2.5 minute primer on the story so far.

The film is the second installment of a trilogy about an epic battle of good and evil -- which apparently seems to revolve around a mystical piece of chalk. Both films were directed by *Laeta Kalogridis, and so it seems likely that he will direct the third. Since I haven't seen Night Watch, I can't say that the poster for the sequel tells you all that much about the film, although it did kind of remind me of The Dark Half, but I make some strange associations sometimes. There is even a chance to voice your preference for a different poster if this first one doesn't catch your fancy -- to be fair though, if you thought this poster was a little confusing, wait till you see the mutant baby-dolls.

*Correction: Both films were directed by Timur Bekmambetov
