Where we take a look at posters for upcoming features.
This week featuring two marvelous actresses everyone loves to hate (and they shouldn't because they're just such magnificent thespians! And also two of my favorite actresses...)
First up is John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit Hole which comes up with an interesting poster that could've been simply genius if it wasn't for the fact that they stuck Kidman's face in it.
I've nothing against her gorgeous silhouette but it really takes away from the creepy tire swing and the vast emptiness of the sky.
Perhaps in a way the poster does sum up the way the movie is perceived by some: an artsy drama getting attention mostly because it was produced and stars a true superstar.
There are so many bad things going on in the one sheet for Country Strong that I won't even begin to list them.
Would it have been too hard for the marketing department to come up with a cool faux concert poster for a movie about a singer? (Think Walk the Line)
Even so, why not just use Gwyneth Paltrow like they did with Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart?
Sigh, this thing looks like a collage made by someone with no regards for lighting, human sizes and Photoshop.
Why do you think people dislike Gwyn and Nic so much these days? Every time I bring Paltrow up I'm attacked by people saying terrible things about her. The other day I told a friend she was my favorite actress and he told me I couldn't be throwing statements like that around too lightly...
Would you have reacted the same way?
