You are to create a movie poster for a sequel to an existing movie that has not been made yet! (ie. Iron Man 3, Batman 3, I am Legend 2, etc...)

Your final project must include the following:

Part 1: Movie approval.

Part 2: Actor conversion.
Convert the actor into the role.

Part 3: Movie Poster.
1. Import the actor (in their role) into the movie poster.
2. Make the Title.
3. Make the Movie Credits.
4. Create/Modify the new background

Part 4: Final touches.
1. Compare your movie poster to existing movie posters.  What needs to be added/modified?

You are to modify existing actors to fit the role of their movie parts on the movie poster.  (ie. Johnny Depp has never played the role of The Riddler--therefore, you would need to modify and existing photo of Johnny Depp and convert him into the Riddler).

a. Include the actor's name.
b. Include the title of the movie--produce a different version of the prequels movie title to fit for the sequel.
c. Include a new background and modify to fit the poster.

Use any and all skills learned throughout the course to make your movie poster realistic and professionally developed.  This can include but is not limited to airbrush, transforms, pimple removal, changing eye colors, duplicating, etc...
