New ‘City of Ember’ Theatrical Poster
  |  @   |  

Fox Walden sent us a high-res version of the official theatrical poster for their upcoming fantasy film, City of Ember.

An unofficial non-approved version of the poster appeared online earlier today, but this one here came directly from the studio and is the final image.
