New “Enhanced” OotP IMAX Poster Taken Down

Yesterday, TLC posted this editorial regarding the changes made to certain actors in the new IMAX poster for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. In particular were the striking changes made to the figure of Emma Watson from the original photo for the posters, to this image that was posted online via the IMAX website. Apparently the world wide outcry over this did not fall on deaf ears as tonight, the Daily Mail is reporting on not only our own Melissa Anelli’s efforts in this matter but now, WB sources who say this image has been taken down as “the enhanced image had not been approved.”

“This is not an official poster. Unfortunately this image was accidentally posted on the Imax website. The mistake was promptly rectified and the image taken down.”

While we applaud this effort, readers should note , this poster we saw previously from Sweden that also has been touched up (is that Ginny/Bonnie Wright?) and prompted a great deal of similar protest, has been confirmed to TLC as “real” or approved…alas.
