Hi! What an exciting assignment! I must disappoint you though, as I do not have any high quality pics from the movie, only a few screen caps (because I downloaded the movie and capped it, and it wasn’t exactly HD-quality…)

If it doesn’t sound too bad though, give me your email-adress or something and then I can send them to you, if you want me to.
