  • Well I made the decision to watch E! for the red carpet coverage, which I have no idea if it was a good thing or a bad thing. Ready for the Oscar ceremony to start on Sky Movies.

Shrek Forever After (2010) Poster

The first poster has been released for the fourth and final Shrek movie. Not really too much to comment on this poster really, other than Puss in Boots is rather on the fat side . . . will this really be Shrek Forever After? Well the third movie was not really the best, are we bored of seeing the same jokes over and over now?

This could be the start of quite a lot of posters for this movie being released.
