Variety is the Spice of Life, Apparently

I noticed something while looking at all these posters for Dreamworks' upcoming animation masterpiece (har dee hah hah me) How to Train Your Dragon.

Poster #1:

Boy riding his green-eyed dragon (really? that's a dragon?) through some sort of fiery hole(?). Dragon is keeping his eyes to the left.

Poster #2:

Boy riding his really green-eyed dragon across some sort of arctic tundra. Oh look! A girl and her dragon are following closely behind them. Dragon is keeping his eyes to the left.

Poster #3:

Boy riding his green-eyed dragon over some sort of coastal region. Oh look! He's joined by a girl now. Dragon is keeping his eyes to the left.

Poster #4:

Boy riding his green-eyed dragon over some sort of cloudy area. Oh look! He's still joined by that girl although their faces don't seem to be changing from one backdrop to another. Dragon is now screaming or something. That's different at least.

Things We Have Learned:
Dragons and the people who ride them don't have many facial expressions. They would never make it past round one of America's Next Top Model. I can just picture Tyra saying "you have to act with your eyes" and Ms Jay just doing that disapproving noise sassy people make before making some sort of "hilarious" analogy between their faces and homeless people or basically anybody else who is less fortunate than them. Tyra would be all "I know what he means... I was homeless once!" and then they'd carry on with the circle of life.


...wait, that's The Lion King. See how easily distracted I am by not only Dreamworks animation, but also bad posters?
