ComingSoon.net has the first look at yet another poster for the animated comedy and Fox has also launched the movie's official site. It's a relatively elaborate site with plenty to do, or at least it will be when Fox gets the entire thing up and running. At the moment, there are only a couple of games, that mainly involve cartoon destruction, so it looks they aren't kidding with the Michael Bay-style extravaganza they've hinted at in the trailers. For the less destructively inclined, there's also a little "three card Moe." You can also take a crack at creating your own Simpson's avatar, and of course there are the usual offerings of icons, a screen saver, and desktop wallpapers.
At this point, I think it's fair to say that I have lost track of the different posters for the film, so I can't say that this one is going to stand out any more than the rest. However, there is something to be said for the "classical" Homer, complete with donut. Fans have been anxiously waiting for July 27th to see if this is the Simpsons movie they have been waiting for, or if Groening and company have somehow managed to screw it all up, and as the wait goes on, Fox certainly seems to be giving the film all the support they can.
