FIRST IMAGE from Sony’s “Popeye”?

FIRST IMAGE from Sony's "Popeye"?

This image (above) mysteriously appeared today on Facebook – and methinks its the teaser poster for Genndy Tartakovsky’s Popeye feature, currently in production at Sony Animation for 2015 Columbia Pictures release. 

I assume its the new teaser poster – a variant of the in-house teaser poster that has been on display at  the Culver City lot the past few months (see iPhone pic below). 


UPDATE: Well blow me down! David Gerstein has found that this image was created as part of the back cover graphics (below) for the 2004 direct-to-video CGI special, Popeye Voyage: The Quest For Pappy. That’s a relief! I expect the new Sony film to be a significant improvement.

Isn't the new film coming in 2014? It would stink to wait until 2015 for the color Fleischers on DVD :(

Sadly not – this was for the 2004 straight-to-video film:

Looks good and no Robin Williams anywhere in sight!
