Vision Man: Eye Contact's official movie poster finally printed at 27x40 inches...and given to Vision Man for his wedding!

Vision Man: Eye Contact was released with a 27x40 inch official movie poster, just like all good movies should.  Except...it was never printed out at that size.  At the time of the movie's release, I (Tracy) looked into actually getting one printed out and putting it on display.  However, at the time, the printing services I looked into were a little pricey.

Flash forward four years to the wedding of Vision Man himself, Jon Boon.  I have a cool idea as to what Scott, Ted, and I can get Jon for his wedding: the Vision Man poster...printed at full size!  I'm thinking that maybe the prices have come down in four years, or that maybe I can just find someplace that wasn't so expensive...and sure enough, I did!  So Ted, Scott, and I go in together and order Jon the poster.  (Of course, I have to get one for myself, too.)  We plan to give it to Jon on March 27, 2010, the day of his wedding reception.

Well, March 27 arrives...but there's no poster!  Turns out UPS lost it during shipping!  So the two posters have to be reprinted and re-shipped...but, alas, not in time for poor ole Jon's special day.  So Jon is just told that he has a special gift that's coming, but that it got lost in the mail, so he'll just have to wait!

The reprinted posters were delivered on April 13, but it took another two months before everyone finally agreed to get together.  So on June 21, we actually got together, and voila...Jon got his poster!  He hung it up, and here's how it looks:

I hung mine up, too:

So there you have it!  One mystery remains, though....what happened to the original posters that were lost in the mail?  It's been over three months now, and they've never arrived.  Hmmm...maybe we need to keep an eye out on eBay...
