We’re about to transition from three-quarters of a year filled with very little to get excited about into the final stretch of 2008, which will feature at least half a dozen must-see films. One of them, by all accounts, is Slumdog Millionaire, the latest by Danny Boyle.

I love Fox Searchlight for picking up the film and really getting it out there for a November 12 opening. But I’m not sure about this poster, which Anne Thompson has as an exclusive first-look. If I didn’t know anything about the film the combination of colors, game-show elements and shadowy composition would repel rather than entice. You tell me if I’m the only one.
