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.
