If you are old enough, you remember Jackée Harry from her turn on Saturday night sitcom “227.” But if you’re a little bit less old, you might remember her as the mom on “Sister Sister.” Whatever your reference point, I think we can all agree that Jackée has been wholly underutilized since the early ’90s, right? Well, not anymore. Some baby genius over at Screencrush designed 10 Jackée-themed movie posters in hopes that her agent will start returning her calls again. You guys, think about it. We’ve really been missing out on her wit, style and vocal modulations! A couple more posters after the jump! [Screencrush] Keep reading »
The world — everything! — is better with sloths, if you ask me. So of course I’m going to love #slothposters, an emerging meme in which sloths are transposed on virtually any and every movie poster. Click through for a couple more slothy motion pictures! Keep reading »
Once you move out of your college dorm room, it’s generally frowned upon to plaster your walls with crinkled “Animal House” posters. You can get around the stigma by putting your movie posters in ornate frames (which is what I did with my beloved “Spice World” poster) or you can show your love for your favorite films with artistic prints instead. I found 11 awesome movie posters designed by Etsy artists that will mix right in with all the other art on your walls. Click on the gallery to check ‘em out!
Oh how I wish “Walt” was an actual real movie about Walt Disney starring Ryan Gosling. Alas, this poster was simply the vision of artist Pascal Witaszek. Hollywood, get on it and make this a reality! [The Daily What]
It is difficult to imagine the French getting worked up about movie posters, seeing as their Weight Watchers commercials are soft core porn. But new posters for “Les Infideles,” a film coming out later this month starring Jean DuJardin, the Golden Globe-winning star of “The Artist,” are causing un grand ruckus. “Les Infideles” will be a series of vignettes about male infidelity and ad campaign is pretty sexy. In one poster, Jean DuJardin holds a woman’s legs up in the air; in another, his costar apepars to be getting a BJ from a lady attending to his crotch. Pretty tame stuff, if you ask me, but at least one French magazine has pulled the ads and a French ad regulation agency advised they be taken down. Everybody calm down, at least there weren’t any words spelled out in semen. [Huffington Post]
Fox Searchlight knows what they can get away with in the U.S. — not much — but when it comes to marketing their movie “Shame” abroad, they wanted to push the envelope. Now, they didn’t dare put Michael Fassbender’s exposed cock on the Hungarian promotional poster, but they sure as s**t tried to get away with using his semen. What a cool, edgy font. I wonder if I can download it somewhere? Anyway, sadly, the Hungarians were not too fond of the poster and it was banned — but not before being uploaded to the internet and convincing me I need to see the film ASAP. Nice work, Fox Searchlight! [Anomalous Material]
Let’s take a look at some other movie posters that were banned for being too sexy and provocative.
What, you haven’t already gotten your tickets for the opening night of “Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1?” There’s only two months and a week left, people. Get on it! But seriously, the just-released poster for the flick does look pretty enticing. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have really mastered the art of showing passion and affection at the same time. Here, it simultaneously looks like they are sweetly caressing and about to pounce on each other. [EW] Keep reading »
Umm, hello. We are far too obsessed with the official poster for “The Ides of March,” the upcoming flick that stars George Clooney as a a presidential candidate whose campaign is derailed when one of his aides, Ryan Gosling, becomes caught up in a nasty scandal. Clooney apparently wrote the movie years ago, but shelved it throughout Barack Obama‘s campaign because he felt the country was too hopeful “for a cynical political movie.” But now he feels the timing is just right. “Republicans hate the beginning of the movie, Democrats hate the end,” he said. And thanks to the flicks’ two lead men, straight women love it all the way through just because of the eye candy. Check out the trailer, after the jump! [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Behold, the official poster for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” featuring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint standing dazed and bloodied among a pile of rubble. I’m thinking this might be a sign that things don’t end simply happily ever after. [EW] Keep reading »
One of the victims of Mel Gibson’s fall from grace after being caught on tape threatening ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva? The Jodie Foster-directed “The Beaver,” which stars the racial slur-shouting actor. The film’s release has been put on indefinite hiatus as a result, but a poster for the film has made it onto the internet. The words written on the index card in Mel’s hand indicate his character is just as looney as he is. [ONTD] Keep reading »
