New Dollhouse Posters. There's a lot of new posters on the official website.

Some of them are really great. I like that they start advertising her awakening self-awareness and memory as the theme of the show. This aligns nicely with the Subversion de la Trope as it was discussed and made explicit in the last few days.

Just saw these on Spoiler TV and my initial reaction is that Fox marketing have run out of ideas. A couple of these are way too similar to the Sarah Connor Chronicles promos.
yeah thats true, the ones on the side view are very simular and also the sying on a couple of them saying 'The Perfect Weapon' is simular to Dark Angel
Why can't we collect them?
In other promotional news, there was a new (I think) promo for Terminator/Dollhouse towards the beginning of Bones last night.

Can't they give Eliza something else to wear besides that black tank top?
Oi. some of the slogans were quite cringeworthy, but very pretty nonetheless
Fantastic posters, I think their advertising is finally getting to the actual point of the show, rather than just 'look, hot chick with a gun and action!' I hope to see these up EVERYWHERE.
Cringeworthy? Maybe a little bit, but they manage to give a synopsis of what the show is about AND pique your interest in just one line - that's pretty impressive.
The promo last night was pretty good, although I can't remember what actually happened in it. But it gave me a feeling of goodness, so...good? Anyway, Summer saying "It's tight" is never not funny.

When I bought the new Buffy comic yesterday, the bags the store used for purchases were supplied by Fox. Summer Glau and the Sarah Connor Chronicles on one side of the bag, and Eliza Dushku and Dollhouse on the other side.

I think there's a theme here.
I'm whatever... dust in the wind. Candle in the wind. There'll be a general wind theme.

Agreed about "It's tight." I laughed, and my wife gave me a weird look, which is usually how things go. Promo was good, though like you, I don't remember much of the details. I'm trying to find it online somewhere, if I can. I know they did use the bullet-time clip in there, and I think some of the motorcycle. It was essentially a toned-down version of the Grindhouse trailer, from what I can remember.
Yeah, definitely toned down. And I'm pretty sure they actually showed Sarah Connor too, heh. I do think the cross-promotion is good because it does seem like they'd be very compatible shows. If people give them a chance and fans of each show watch the other, it could be successful.
The more interesting part, by far, is the link to the Rolling Stone article at the bottom of the page.
Wow, thanks for pointing out the Rolling Stone link. I hadn't seen that before. His last TV show, starting an Internet studio...it's all a lot more definite-sounding than I've heard before. Is that the way he said it or writer's interpretation?
There's an Eliza interview there too, nothing new, but i dunno if its just a weird scanned quality or they were really trying to make her doll-like cuz it's crazy photoshopped.

Interview is from Star.

It was more Fox-esque. It definitely lined up more with their House, Bones, Fringe, Hell's Kitchen, etc... commercials. Maybe that's why it was so forgettable. But when I watched it, I remember thinking "that's looks cool; I'll watch it". So, even though the images faded from my head, the name stuck with the "goodness" feeling, which is the most important part, right?
Is the Rolling Stone article for real? The date at the bottom of it is February 19, 2009. It just sounds so... anti- of what we've heard recently. I'm so confused!
