'True Blood' news bites: New website, new fan and character posters, plus more

true-blood-hbo-character-poster-thumb.jpgHBO's promotional onslaught for " True Blood" can be much at times. It's no wonder they produced that hilarious apology video. This week, new posters, pictures, and events are definitely doing their job - alerting us to the Season 3 premiere on Sunday, June 13!

Zap2it has some of the most recent highlights for you:

New character posters: HBO released nine new character posters that really make the heart beat faster. All of them feature a returning cast member. We're pretty sure you'll have a hard time picking which one will be your new desktop wallpaper.

"True Blood" microsite: HBO has gathered all the Twitter Truebies into one place on their new site called BloodCopy.com. It showcases all the show-centric tweets on one page and hosts will facilitate conversation during the weekly episodes. During the premiere, fans will get a chance to win Ultimate Truebie prize packs and unlock virtual badges. We'll give it a swig.

True-Blood-Bloodsuckers.jpg Last collectible fan poster: The last poster before Season 3 starts asks the question, "Can 400 billion blood suckers be wrong?" I guess that depends on who's providing the blood, eh? You can download the full-sized poster at the HBO website.
